Once again, Democrats are showing their hypocrisy as classified documents were found at the Penn Biden Center, taken there by none other than President Biden himself.
The same Democrats who had a fit over former President Trump taking classified documents to Mar-a-Lago are now silent on Biden’s actions.
House Republicans are demanding that Biden be held to the same legal standards as Trump, as they should be. House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., is leading the investigation and stated that the handling of Biden’s documents displays a clear “two-tier” justice system.
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. went even further and charged that “Biden stole classified documents and stored them at his think tank while he was VP,” and that “the VP does not have any authority to declassify classified documents.”
Texas Representative Ronny Jackson also accused Biden of holding a double standard. He argued that “Biden knew for YEARS that he’s been storing HIGHLY CLASSIFIED documents in his personal office.
He KNEW it when FBI agents were raiding Mar-a-Lago, and he KNEW it when he appointed a partisan special counsel. HE KNEW THE WHOLE TIME BUT STILL HAD HIS DOJ GOONS PERSECUTE TRUMP!!”
Senate Republicans have also raised questions and called for an investigation. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn, asked “Why were they there, why wasn’t the Justice Department looking for these documents, and who had access to them?” Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark also stated that “there can’t be separate standards for Republicans and Democrats” and that “The same rules must apply to everyone.”
The American people deserve to know the truth about these classified documents and whether or not the Biden Administration has been operating under a different set of rules than the previous administration.
It’s clear that Biden’s actions were illegal and he should be held accountable for his actions, just as Trump was. It’s time for the Democrats to stop their hypocritical ways and for the DOJ to do their job and investigate these serious allegations.
