It was only a few months ago that our nation was shocked by an armed raid on the Florida home of former President Donald Trump, with FBI agents descending upon Mar-a-Lago with assault rifles and jack boots.
But, when President Joe Biden found himself adrift in a sea of classified docs all around his various properties, there were no armed agents laying siege to his Delaware home, traipsing about near his precious Corvette, or accidentally absconding with his passport.
That’s because the DOJ decided not to send ’em.
President Joe Biden’s Justice Department reportedly permitted the president’s personal attorneys to search for classified documents in separate locations without security clearances or the FBI present.
Critics have questioned why Biden’s personal attorneys were initially looking for classified documents. Others have questioned why the president’s legal team was continuing to search his home Thursday for classified documents after a special counsel was appointed earlier that day.
And that wasn’t all…
According to the Wall Street Journal, the initial search, authorized by DOJ, involved people with no security clearance looking for potentially classified material. “Mr. Biden’s legal team prepared to search his other properties for any similar documents, and discussed with the Justice Department the prospect of having FBI agents present while Mr. Biden’s lawyers conducted the additional searches,” the report said.
Numerous pundits and politicians have been left aghast at the Biden document situation, and there will no doubt be further trouble coming in the form of congressional investigations and the like.
