President Joe Biden’s legal team found another batch of government records in a search of a second location, according to people briefed on the matter.

The discovery came during searches that followed the initial discovery in November of classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president at his former think tank office. That effort led to the discovery of additional documents of interest to federal officials reviewing the matter, one of the sources said.

Just to be clear the Constitution doesn’t mention indicting .Have to go through the impeachment process instead.

A sitting POTUS or office of the President cant be indicted, or prosecuted.

Also there should be oversight by the house and senate and by a special counsel and the AG should recuse themselves imop

 

Two instances of biden having classified docs when he was VP 

is now a great concern ,especially knowing his lack of knowledge that

he had them! 
Personally speaking Garland cant be trusted with investigating imop

Anyone with the necessary security clearance can have classified documents. What is it you don't understand about that?

 

This investigation is about why they were found there and not been returned, any damage control and who was responsible for them being there. The fact is that as soon as they were found they were very quickly returned in the correct procedure.

 

Garland specifically engaged a Republican lawyer left over from the Trump era to investigate this, he is not doing this himself. Its very difficult to be more than fair on this matter.

 

"Given its nature, any mishandling of classified material raises serious concerns, but such incidents are not uncommon and routinely handled through administrative proceedings, said Mark Zaid, an attorney focusing on national security law.

"A thorough factual investigation will be in everyone's interests and presumably that will help identify whether any individual(s) are culpable," Zaid told VOA in an email. "At this point, there does not seem to be any evidence that President Biden had any knowledge or involvement with the records in question, but we need to wait to learn more."

Why is a VP having classified documents a problem?

Incredibly disingenuous way to frame Biden being found in possession of stolen classified documents strewn across multiple locations.

 

The notion that an ex President has possession of classified docs being VERY VERY BAD AND DANGEROUS, while an ex VP having the same in several unsecure locations after berating the former for possessing the same thing is all cool and what's the problem, doc, is jawdropping.

I’ve helped you with your misunderstanding of what ‘disingenuous’ means by underlining a couple of examples from your own post.

How do you know the matter was reported to the press before the midterms?

Correct when an ex President, was asked repeatedly to return them, lied about their existence, resisted all efforts for access to them, till finally they had to issue a search warrant to get them all back.

 

As apposed to...........

 

The VP's personal lawyer was the one who found them and immediately returned them. Now a full investigation is underway. 

 

So what notion are you talking about?

Whats significant to me is that Biden's own lawyer notified the National Archives on 2nd Nov and returned them before mid terms. I guess they could have waited a few days but no. That's what happens when you carry out an honest declaration.

 

Its plainly obvious that National Archives would then not have time to investigate the matter in just a couple of days and issue official statements.

Trump is not being investigated for having documents in unsecured locations. This would have been nothingburger if Trump hadn't defied legal counsel to take those documents and then lied about being in possession of many of them. To qualify as a crime under the relevant statutes, it is necessary to show that the person being investigated willfully violated the law. It also is a violation of that law to refuse to return documents when requested to do so. And then there is another possible charge on the grounds of obstructing justice due to the fact that Trump lied about being in continued possession of many of these documents.

Just my opinion, but when Biden was mocking and berating Trump for having been in possession of classified documents - that he also in effect put out a narrative that Biden himself had of course never taken classified docs and stored them lazily in several locations.

 

 Accusing others of doing what you yourself have done is hypocritical. Nobody is saying Biden is a hypocrite, are they?

Yes, Biden or his staff was careless and deserves to be reproached for that. But criminality is another matter. And the difference between Biden's conduct and Trump's is huge. What don't you get about the fact that it's clear Trump willfully violated the law despite the advice of legal counsel, and then lied about being in possession of documents he had no right to be in possession of?

Report what to the press? Had the incidents been handled similarly Biden would have had dozens of police cars, SWAT teams, helicopters overhead as his house(s) were stormed. A right old hullabaloo that would be noticed/heard dozens of miles away.

 

B/S. Trump was notified to return the documents in May 2021. It was not until August 2022 that a search warrant was issued. 

 

Facts are not in your favour.

What don't you understand about the fact that whereas Trump had his lawyers act to obstruct the return of documents in his possession, Biden's lawyers immediately reported their presence in Biden's office and arranged to have them returned immediately?
