(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Joe Biden’s former assistant from his time as vice president has revealed that he had kept classified US government documents in an unlocked closet at his Washington, DC think tank.
Kathy Chung spoke before the House Oversight Committee, and its GOP chairman, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), issued a statement disclosing her revelations.
According to then-Vice President Biden’s assistant, after his second term ended in 2017, classified papers were taken from his safekeeping to the Penn Biden Center in the nation’s capital.
They were then kept in an unprotected closet, thus being available to the think-tank’s employees and possibly others, Kathy Chung told the House Oversight Committee.
She said the documents remained accessible to her until May 2022. Breitbart News notes that current Biden administration officials blame Chung for “mishandling” her former boss’s classified papers.
“This story does not begin in November 2022, as represented by President Biden’s attorney. [T]hen-White House Counsel Dana Remus tasked Kathy Chung with retrieving these boxes from the Penn Biden Center as early as May 2022,” Comer said in his statement.
Public records reviewed by The New York Post suggested that persons connected with the Chinese Communist regime donated at least $54 million between 2014 and 2019 to the Penn Biden Center.
A source previously told CNN that the classified papers found at the Penn Biden Center pertain to Iran, the UK, and Ukraine.
Comer indicated that the classified documents found in Biden’s possession might be connected with the Biden family’s foreign business schemes.
“We don’t the know the true extent of what he [Joe Biden] has done. All we know is he had classified documents scattered all over the place dating back to the time as US senator,” the House Oversight chief said.
“There is one document in particular that I can tell you from my investigation of Biden family influence peddling that we are very concerned about with respect to the document that Hunter Biden sent to officials at Burisma in Ukraine. It was a government document. We are concerned that it may have been one of the classified documents,” Comer elaborated.
He referred to Hunter Biden’s employment by Ukraine-based company Burisma in 2014, which was owned by an oligarch connected with the regime of Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Joe Biden hired Kathy Chung as his assistant after a recommendation from his son Hunter, as indicated by numerous emails on his “laptop from hell,” the report points out.
Chung was then-Vice President Biden’s assistant until January 19, 2017, according to Legistorm. However, she told Comer that as recently as May 2022, a former White House lawyer tasked her with accessing the classified papers. This contradicts claims from Joe Biden’s lawyers.
The White House has also failed to clarify what Biden’s lawyers were doing at the Penn Biden Center on November 2, 2022, when they found the classified records.
The discovery was revealed on January 9, 2023, in a leak to CBS News. According to mainstream media, Biden and his Justice Department tried to hide the scandal at least three times.
DOJ’s Special Counsel Robert Hur is investigating Biden over the classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center and his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
