For weeks on end, the liberal left attempted to shame and sully the name of former President Donald Trump over a number of allegedly classified documents that the National Archives believed that he was holding down at Mar-a-Lago.
Now, some months later, it’s President Joe Biden’s turn in the hot seat for the same thing.
A batch of records from President Biden’s time as Vice President, including a “small number of documents with classified markings,” were discovered at the Penn Biden Center by the president’s personal attorneys on Nov. 2, according to Richard Sauber, special counsel to the White House.
The attorneys found the documents in a locked closet while preparing to vacate office space at the center, which the president used from mid-2017 until he began the 2020 campaign.
The Biden White House has kept the embarrassing slip-up under wraps since last year.
The National Archives were notified of the finding and took possession of the documents on Nov. 3, 2022, Sauber said.
The special counsel did their best to tamp down the severity of the issue.
“The documents were not the subject of any previous request or inquiry by the Archives,” Sauber said in a statement. “Since that discovery, the President’s personal attorneys have cooperated with he Archives and the Department of Justice in process to ensure that any Obama-Biden Administration records are appropriately in the possession of the Archives.”
The news will almost certainly be considered a rather powerful political gift for Donald Trump, who will almost certainly be facing Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election.
