The Biden family has been escaping prosecution for decades. They’ve made millions off of their public life and want to keep it that way.
But Joe Biden went pale as a ghost after he was caught in this illegal coverup.
Democrats have a history of accusing Republicans of the exact crimes they have committed.
Just take a look at the impeachment of Donald Trump over his supposed corruption in Ukraine.
Liberals claimed that Trump strong armed Ukraine into doing his bidding in exchange for foreign aid dollars.
Of course, none of this turned out to be true. But conservatives were quick to jump on the fact that Joe Biden did EXACTLY that while Vice President in the Obama administration.
When President Biden’s son, Hunter, was being investigated for his business dealings in Ukraine, Joe used his influence as Vice President to quash the investigation.
Likewise, Biden raided Trump’s home claiming he had stolen classified information.
But now we’re finding out that Biden himself stashed classified information in an old office after his tenure as Vice President ended.
And Republicans are banging the war drum – threatening Joe Biden with a massive investigation.
Republicans in Congress say they will look into the matter of the secret documents that were found at the Biden Center for Diplomacy at the University of Pennsylvania. These documents are from when President Joe Biden was vice president.
James Comer (R-KY), the head of the House Oversight Committee, said Monday night that his committee will send a letter to the National Archives and Records Administration asking for answers. If the investigation leads to hearings, the committee would be open to them.
“President Biden has stated that taking classified documents from the White House is ‘irresponsible,’” Comer said in a statement, according to Fox News. “Under the Biden Administration, the Department of Justice and National Archives have made compliance with the Presidential Records Act a top priority.
“We expect the same treatment for President Biden, who has apparently inappropriately maintained classified documents in an insecure setting for several years,” he added.

Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) tweeted: “Joe Biden took classified documents to his private office and LIED about it to 60 minutes. Why isn’t the FBI raiding Biden’s Delaware homes right now? House GOP will investigate!”
CBS News said for the first time on Monday that President Joe Biden’s lawyers found a group of classified documents from when Biden was vice president on November 2, 2022, right before the midterms, when they were clearing the center in Washington, D.C.
Biden’s lawyer, Richard Sauber, says that Biden used the center from the middle of 2017 until he started running for president in 2020. Sauber said that the documents were locked in a closet in one of Biden’s private offices.
Before meeting with the Mexican president, a reporter tried to ask Biden about the documents, but everyone in the room was rushed out:

House Republicans said it was unfair that the National Archives treated the documents found at the Penn Biden Center differently than the documents marked as classified that were found at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida last year.
Andy Biggs, the head of the House Freedom Caucus (R-AZ), said on Twitter that as vice president, Biden did not have the power to declassify secret documents.
“Biden stole classified documents and stored them at his think tank while he was VP,” he tweeted, before questioning the center’s status as a “think tank” and adding that it received $54 million in funding from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also said that, unlike the president, Biden did not have the power to declassify.
Joe Biden took classified documents from the White House when he was Vice President.
The VP does NOT have the power to declassify, only POTUS.
Joe Biden stole classified documents.
This is a very serious crime.
DOJ & NARA can’t sweep this under the rug AND persecute Trump.

“Joe Biden stole classified documents. This is a very serious crime. DOJ & NARA can’t sweep this under the rug AND persecute Trump,” she tweeted.
A lot of Republicans said that the Justice Department treated Trump and Biden differently because of who they were. The DOJ set up a grand jury to look into whether Trump kept any classified documents, and the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago to look for them.
Dan Bishop (R-NC) tweeted, “Two tiers of Justice cannot stand.”
Meanwhile, the Biden administration ordered an FBI raid on his top political opponent for…..having classified documents.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) defended Biden.

At least two Democrats in the House were worried, though they didn’t say much about it.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told CNN: “Obviously if there are classified documents anywhere they shouldn’t be that’s a problem and a deep concern.” However, he equivocated on whether there should be an investigation. “I probably don’t want to say more [until] I have a chance to read the article.”
“Classified information needs to stay in secure spaces,” Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) told CNN.
If Hill should probe. "I probably don't want to say more time until I have a chance to read the article. But I think it ought to be concerning to anyone if classified information is not where it should be"
Jim Himes to me: "Classified information needs to stay in secure spaces."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), on the other hand, did ask for a grand jury to be put together.

Donald Trump Jr., Trump’s oldest son, asked in a sarcastic tweet when the FBI would raid one of Biden’s homes:
When will the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team storm one of Biden’s many vacation homes bought and paid for somehow by a lifetime of being a humble public servant? https://t.co/6qfXdxePll
