Joe Biden’s conjured and curated grandfatherly visage is fading fast, now that a number of classified documents have been found scattered about several of his properties, some of which haven’t been used since his time as Vice President back in 2016.
And, as if this weren’t bad enough, it turns out that Biden is trying to sic White House lawyers on the situation – a move that has garnered an official ethics complaint from a government watchdog group.

Fox News Digital has learned that government watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) filed their complaint with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics on Tuesday.
“The American public will not tolerate a two-tiered system of justice – with well-connected insiders subject to a lower standard of scrutiny than the normal citizen,” PPT director Mike Chamberlain said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
Chamberlain wasn’t finished there.
President Biden promised the most ethical and transparent administration in history,” Chamberlain said. “If the White House compounded a scandal involving possible mishandling of classified documents by improperly using taxpayer resources for his personal benefit and putting White House attorneys in positions that created conflicts of interest, we could be witnessing a serious betrayal of the public’s already-plummeting trust.”Advertisement - story continues below
“It also creates the spectre of possible obstruction of a congressional investigation, depending on the legal basis for the intervention and any future privileges claimed by the White House on this escalating scandal,” he added.
Biden’s team was believed to be preparing for his entry into the 2024 presidential race, but this growing document scandal could derail those plans entirely.
