“In November, President Biden’s lawyers found less than a dozen documents in an office he used in Washington and turned them over to the National archives. That’s about it,” MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said Thursday.
Early on when the story of the Joe Biden classified documents scandal first broke, his White House Special Counsel declared that the storage of classified documents in places they weren’t supposed to be (the garage at Biden’s Delaware home as well as in a closet at his former office at the Penn Biden Center) was “inadvertent.”

Around that same time, the Biden White House was repeatedly telling reporters that the search for any additional documents was “complete”:
On January 12, the White House said SIX TIMES the search for classified documents was complete.
ANOTHER batch of classified documents — including some from Biden’s years in the SENATE — we’re just discovered at Biden’s Wilmington home.

And on the rare occasions since then where Biden has answered questions about the issue, he’s gotten awfully testy with reporters, defiantly telling them that he has “no regrets” with how the documents were handled:

The downplaying of this scandal has of course not been limited to Joe Biden and officials in his administration. Prior to Saturday’s breaking news about even more documents being found – which proves that both Joe Biden and his attorneys lied, left-wing talking heads, fellow Democrats, and some NeverTrumpers all climbed on board the “inadvertent” train in trying to convince everyone that this is no big deal in the scheme of things.
It is very “different,” they said, than the classified documents situation with former President Donald Trump.
Case in point:
Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace, one of MSNBC’s most vociferous Biden cheerleaders, spent the week downplaying Biden’s potential mishandling of classified documents. On Thursday, she summarized the story: “In November, President Biden’s lawyers found less than a dozen documents in an office he used in Washington and turned them over to the National archives. That’s about it.”
During that same show, MSNBC contributor Harry Litman insisted Biden’s case was “not the sort of thing you need a Special Counsel for.”
Here’s a compilation video of Democrats and leftist pundits downplaying the Biden documents scandal prior to Saturday’s news:
The leftist media are insisting that Joe Biden's GarageGate scandals are not only different to Trump's classified documents, but they're a "distraction" from his "success."

And there’s more where that came from:

Leader Jeffries, asked by @wolfblitzer about Biden's classified documents: "I remain having full confidence in President Joe Biden and his administration."
"This situation appears to be inadvertent, not intentional."
"He's a good man … and we'll get thru this."

Pritzker: Biden classified document horde ‘vastly different’ than Trump’s https://t.co/S2CGRxL5Mf

"the two cases appear strikingly different.
"Unlike Trump, who resisted govt requests to return records and failed to fully comply w/a subpoena, Biden’s team appears to have acted swiftly in accordance w/law, summoning the Archives to retrieve the files." https://t.co/1OoEAV1I9H

There’s a line in an old song that goes “Lawyers dwell on small details.” It’s true. The law is all about details. From one perspective, two cases may appear similar, but depending on the details, they can be very different.

Yes the facts are different between the Trump docs case & Biden docs but neither are good. Trump more egregiously mishandling classified info & obstructing doesn’t excuse Biden from improperly handling classified info. $0.02

As it turns out, there were some differences, just not the ones Joe Biden wants you to focus on:
That now makes two different offices Biden held where he mishandled classified documents. I guess media pundits were right to say this is "different" than the Trump probe. https://t.co/q6jyDJ2Gbt

Move along, nothing to see here—at least that’s what Biden’s defenders, many of whom have gone strangely silent on this matter—want you to think.
