President Trump openly demanded to know when the FBI is going to “raid the many homes of Joe Biden” this week, after it was revealed that classified documents were found at a Biden-linked think tank, documents that apparently came from Biden’s time as vice president to Barack Obama.
The parallels were immediately drawn to the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home during a dispute over custody of documents from Trump’s time as president.
Trump has said he declassified the documents found there, but he pointed out Biden as vice president had no authority to declassify documents.
In a statement on his Truth Social platform, Trump said, “When is the FBI going to raid the many homes of Joe Biden, perhaps even the White House? These documents were definitely not declassified.”
He cited reports that the secret information was found at the Penn Biden Center.
Donald Trump Jr. said, “When will the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team storm one of Biden’s many vacation homes bought and paid for somehow by a lifetime of being a humble public servant?”
A report in the Daily Mail said the files were found in November, “by Biden’s lawyers.”
“Biden was in Mexico City on Monday for a meeting with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, and refused to answer shouted questions as to how the documents ended up inside the offices,” the report said.
It said the classified documents “included some top-secret files with the ‘sensitive compartmented information’ designation, also known as SCI, which is used for highly sensitive information obtained from intelligence sources.”
The White House statement said it was “cooperating” with the DOJ “regarding the discovery of what appear to be Obama-Biden admin records.”
Radio host Clay Travis immediately noted, “They just announced Joe Biden illegally kept classified documents from his vice presidency in his possession.”
Rep. Andy Biggs said, “Biden stole classified documents and stored them at his think tank while he was VP. The VP does not have any authority to declassify classified documents. And this ‘think tank’ received $54 million in funding from the CCP,” referencing the Chinese Communist Party.
Democrats excused the entire episode, saying Biden’s lawyers “found” the documents, and “returned” them.
The report noted that last year when Biden was asked during an interview how documents could be found at Trump’s home and office in Florida, he said, “How that could possibly happen? How anyone could be that irresponsible? And it just – totally irresponsible.”
Biden himself was the center’s managing director in 2018 and he’s been paid nearly $1 million for speeches and for heading the center.
