(TheRedAlertNews.com) – BREAKING NOW: FBI agents searched President Biden’s think tank in Washington, D.C., in mid-November 2022, earlier than previously disclosed. This raises questions about the White House’s claim of transparency regarding the ongoing investigation into Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified documents.
The search was carried out after Biden’s personal lawyers found a trove of classified documents in the president’s former office on November 2.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated, “We have been transparent in the last couple of days, remember there is an ongoing process and we have spoken when it is appropriate.”
Biden stored classified documents from his Vice-Presidency at the Penn Biden Center.
The new timeline suggests that the Biden administration waited until after the midterm elections to disclose the first cache of classified documents.
Since the discovery of the first cache of classified documents in November, Biden’s lawyers found another cache at the president’s personal residence in Wilmington, Del., in late December.
This prompted Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint Robert Hur as special counsel in early January to oversee the investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents. Garland stated, “The extraordinary circumstances here require the appointment of a special counsel for this matter.”
In November 2022, Garland also appointed Jack Smith, a former Justice Department prosecutor, to investigate Donald Trump for similar matters concerning the mishandling of classified documents as well as unlawful interference with the transfer of power.
Due to Republican concerns over the handling of the investigation into former President Donald Trump, Garland addressed skeptics following his appointment of Hur. He stated, “I strongly believe that the normal processes of this department can handle all investigations with integrity…I strongly believe that the normal processes of this department can handle all investigations with integrity. But under the regulations, the extraordinary circumstances here require the appointment of a special counsel for this matter.”
According to the Presidential Records Act, all documents from the President and Vice-President must be transferred to the National Archives following the end of an administration.
Last Tuesday, classified documents were found at former Vice-President Mike Pence’s Indiana residence. The discovery was made by Pence’s staffers, who contacted the National Archives.
