During his tenure as vice president, Joe Biden was revealed to have concealed two sets of highly sensitive documents,
- One in the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC.
- Second in the garage of his home in Wilmington, Delaware, next to his Corvette.
- Five additional sensitive documents were discovered at his Wilmington home over the weekend.
These help spread the flames that have already devoured the White House.
Most shocking would be evidence that Biden reviewed their files or retrieved sensitive information from sealed files.
When pressed further, Turley continued, “We don’t know what the evidence would show.”
That, as Turley pointed out, would put an end to the “accident” defence and make it possible for the public and investigators to believe his statements. People have been charged with the worst offences when they intentionally took things out on others, but “gross abuse doesn’t have to be done on purpose” and inadvertent infractions are generally handled with outside of the criminal justice system.”
Intent can be proven not only at the time the documents were taken, but also during the time they were held on to.
He stated, “It would be an intentional act to have these records without permission if they were used or knowingly held for the previous six years.”
After the first revelation on November 2, Turley added, “using private counsel without clearances could be perceived as reckless and a significant error.”
Moreover, “those attorneys are likely to be summoned to testify in a criminal inquiry,”
The White House must to fully participate with this probe, according to University of Minnesota law professor Richard Painter.
According to him, the White House should assist the special counsel in determining how the documents were sent to the Penn Biden Center and Biden’s house, who knew about their existence, if anyone, and who may have access to them.
It was stated by Painter; ” “This is especially concerning in light of the fact that Penn’s president solicited and received tens of millions of dollars in Chinese funding for the Penn-Biden Center.
The closed cupboard in Biden’s office would have been visible to many visitors to the centre, including Penn benefactors, who would have been curious about what was hidden inside.”
Former President George W. Bush placed Painter in charge of White House ethics. He moved to the Democratic Party and ran for the Senate in 2018, however he was unsuccessful.
After news spread that Biden’s attorneys had discovered five additional sensitive documents in the garage, Republicans on Capitol Hill demanded access to the visitation logs over the weekend. Visitors to the White House are meticulously documented.
Contrary to what Biden’s lawyers claim, however, Biden’s Wilmington residence does not have any.
On Monday, the White House Counsel’s Office stated, “His house is secret, as it has been for every President in the last many decades.
However, President Biden reinstated the longstanding practise of preserving and periodically releasing White House visitor logs, which had been discontinued by the Obama administration.”
