I’m a little incensed …
I watched a presser the other day where a CNN reported grilled the Biden Press Sec. on WTF didn’t the President go straight to the press when the first government files where discovered by his lawyers….
I’m also annoyed at Demovrats who are helping Republicans by follwoing the media line….
Republicans’ hucker down when they have an issue…
Democrats wring their hands in public…
Democrats need to STF up …
Complaining about things just help Donald Trump…..
The Biden case REALLY isn’t in the same ballpark as Trump’s….
Biden’s people found files …Reported it in …..
Had the FBI come get the stuff for the National Arcives…
Did it a second time again….
Trump was asked for the files for 6 months….
He REFUSED to surrender them…
FBI agents with guns had to show up and retreive them….
Trump’s alawyers told rthe Feds they had everything…..
It has come to a judge ordering the Trump people to ID the whole did the searching….
They Trump people have NOT gone on to search Trump Tower or the Trump NJ property…
Donald Trump STILL wants the files BACK.…..
We now have the media on Biden’s case?
President Biden has been VERY smart to ‘hunker’ down and NOT say a word to the media….
Joe doesn’t own them a damn thing….
He needs to NOT get grilled on this in front of camera where the media is looking for him to do what tendss to do…
As the liked piece below points out….
Attorney General Garland probably WILL get garnd jury charges on the Trump file case….
The two situations are as different as day and night….
Based on what we know now, Biden’s sloppy retention of a smattering of classified documents looks more like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s inadvertent retention of classified material on a private email server than former President Donald Trump’s stubborn refusal to return hundreds of classified documents to the DOJ despite repeated demands from federal officials.
Trump is under investigation for willful retention of classified records because he ignored direct requests from national archives officials, a grand jury subpoena and even a personal visit from DOJ’s top counterintelligence official. The FBI seized the documents pursuant to a search warrant only after they discovered that Trump’s attorneys lied to them and that documents had been moved inside Mar-a-Lago after their visit.
If you or I possessed top secret information in our home, the feds wouldn’t ask for it politely or even issue a subpoena. The DOJ bent over backwards to treat Trump with kid gloves, which makes its case that he willfully retained classified material particularly strong. DOJ officials, under the direction of special counsel Jack Smith, are also investigating obstruction of justice and could bring those charges even if they decide not to bring charges related to classified records….
While the Biden investigation is at an early stage, and there may be key facts that are not yet public, Biden’s actions appear to have been sloppy and inadvertent rather than willful and obstructive. Most of the statutes that Trump is under investigation for violating wouldn’t apply to Biden’s conduct. The only statute that Hur would likely investigate is 18 U.S.C. 793(f)(1), which punishes the loss or removal of national defense information resulting from “gross negligence.”
My Name Is Jack says
What all of this should result in is a thoroughgoing overhaul of our ridiculous “ classified documents” system,
Indeed it’s so nuts that the bureaucratic body that oversees this “ system” admits that it has no idea how many documents are “ classified.”
As for these legalistic arguments about the difference” ” between Bidens case and Trumps.?The average person doesn’t give a damn ,
Agreeded on the classified system….
One would think the Government KNOWS what they give to a President?
They DO have computers….
On the volume of classified stuff?
I also agree with you….
I would image wnen some people get to look at the stuff?
They reply ….
I’ve seen this stuff in the Wash Post or NY Times…..
Keep ur mouth shut Joe….
U start talking and ur gonna make things worst….
Biden Frustrated by Staying Quiet About Classified Docs
CNN: “Biden himself has chafed at how much he is able to reveal publicly, telling reporters twice last week he hoped to say more.”
“Behind the scenes, sources said Biden’s grown frustrated at how the saga has played out, particularly the way his administration’s handling of the story has overtaken what had been a positive stretch.”
