The Biden administration is under immense pressure since classified documents were discovered unsecured in President Biden’s office and personal residences. Now it seems the White House has chosen to plead the 5th on the situation.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is refusing to take questions on if the Justice Department is searching for more documents or whether President Biden is personally involved.
Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller asked during a Tuesday White House press conference, “Is it safe to assume now that all the documents have been recovered, all the official records, all the classified documents are back in [the] custody of the National Archives? Or are more searches underway to find out if there’s anything out there?”
Jean-Pierre responded by saying she intended to be “prudent” and refrain from commenting on the matter. Jean-Pierre’s non-answer seemingly implies that the investigation is ongoing and the Biden administration is covering its bases.
Biggest scandal yet
The discovery that President Biden wrongly possessed classified documents going back to his days as Vice President represents his biggest scandal yet and could very well torpedo the President’s hopes of running again in 2024.
The timing of the discovery could not be worse as President Biden and the Democrat Party have been attacking former President Donald Trump for possessing classified documents that were stored at his Mar-a-Lago residence.
The FBI’s raid of a former President was unprecedented and divided the nation heavily. There is no way the mainstream media could spin Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal on the heels of what has been happening to Donald Trump.
Shockingly, the mainstream media has been in many ways turning on the Biden administration.
Reporters from CBS and ABC all were asking hardball questions about Joe Biden’s classified documents which forced Jean-Pierre to continually dodge questions and look evasive.
While things may look dire for President Biden, he has the advantage of a blatantly partisan Department of Justice on his side.
The White House has refused to comment on if President Biden is personally involved in searching for further classified documents. Obviously, if he is that would present an opportunity for him and his lawyers to cover up any crimes that were committed.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called the Justice Department out and warned them that both Joe Biden and Donald Trump must be treated equally.
McConnell said, “I think the important thing with regard to documents is that both these guys ought to be treated exactly the same way. Exactly the same way.” McConnell also added, “What’s good for one candidate for president ought to be good for another one.”
So far that hasn’t been the case as the FBI isn’t allowed to monitor the President’s legal team as they search for more documents. The way the Justice Department is treating Joe Biden demonstrates an obvious dual system of justice in America.
