In a shocking development, George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley has revealed that President Joe Biden’s lawyers are “likely witnesses in a criminal investigation” as the probe into Biden’s handling of classified documents continues. This is a major blow to the Biden administration, which has been plagued by scandals since day one.
It all began when two stashes of classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president were found in the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., as well as at the president’s Wilmington, Delaware, house in the garage by his Corvette. To make matters worse, over the weekend, five more classified documents were discovered at his Wilmington home, spiraling the White House into an ongoing scandal.
Turley, speaking to Fox News Digital, stated that we “do not know what the evidence will show” and that the “most serious discovery would be evidence that Biden worked off their documents or removed them from their classification folders.”
He went on to say that “That would not only destroy the ‘inadvertence’ defense but make his public comments potentially deceitful of both the public and investigators,” Turley said.
“While gross mishandling does not require evil intent, unintentional violations are often addressed outside of the criminal justice system. The most serious violations have been prosecuted where material was intentionally removed.”
It’s clear that the Biden administration has something to hide, as Turley added that the “use of private counsel without clearances following the first discovery on Nov. 2 could itself be viewed as reckless and gross mishandling.” This is just the latest in a series of scandals that have plagued the Biden administration, including the ongoing border crisis and the mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s time for the Biden administration to come clean and cooperate fully with the investigation. As law professor Richard Painter stated, “The White House needs to cooperate fully with this investigation, which involves helping the special counsel find out how the documents got to the Penn Biden Center and to his home and who knew they were there (if anybody), as well as cooperating with a DOJ or intel assessment of who may have access to the documents.”
This is a critical moment for the Biden administration, and the American people deserve to know the truth. It’s time for President Biden to come clean and take responsibility for his actions. The Democrats cannot be allowed to sweep this scandal under the rug, and the Republicans on Capitol Hill will not rest until the truth is revealed.
