Re: Will Biden be a good President?

Just imagine that Biden also has classified documents about Macron's wife

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

Curiously, what was Biden’s lawyer looking for when he “Stumbled” upon these documents. And apparently there is at least one more set of documents out there

That's really the point, if these documents were intelligence documents relating to the sexuality of the French President and/or what he likes to get up to in the bedroom, who cares? They only become interesting if they have evidence of some nefarious business dealings the current or former president may have had, however I doubt this very much.

It's quite amusing how many in the media were so quick yesterday to jump on the difference in security between the Trump and Biden document finds. How President Biden's documents were "secure" in a safe, these new revelations rather torpedo that

Second batch of classified Biden documents found

Did you notice that even the biased media had no way but admitting that it was Biden aides who were conducting the searches and found the second batch? Is this a mistake by team Biden? Seems like it. But the point I was making was not whether this is a mistake or not, but rather how does one behave when a mistake is made. THIS is where the differences between Biden and Trump lies.

Yes they're different as they're different people. Tbh, I wouldn't expect anything else. President Trump's people were also cooperating with the National Achieves to begin with and had returned some documents until for reasons unclear they stopped cooperating.

One shouldn't forget though, ultimately this is media spin. The story when Mar-a-Lago took place wasn't about cooperation or behavior, rather that these "top secret" documents that were a threat to national security were not in their correct place.

Is that why the FBI argued probable cause for obstruction of justice in the search warrant, signed of by a judge?

Seems like you found out how. Tucker said literally the same thing.

But yes, the document issue does look quite bad for Biden, and just in time for the "weaponization" committee of rabid Jordan.

Well we have to make a few assumptions there considering almost the entire thing was redacted and covered in black ink!

Ultimately, the three potential crimes under investigation were:

Willful retention of national defence information
Obstruction of federal investigation
Concealment or removal of government records

As far as I can see two of the three apply to President Biden.

Possibly 2, certainly 1. The obstruction part however is what likely triggered the "raid".

Look, no defending Biden for whatever this turns out to be. Still looks very different to the Trump situation. For whom personally of course all of this is great news.

President Joe Biden’s aides located documents with classified markings at two locations inside his home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House counsel’s office said in a statement Thursday. The documents were located in a storage area in the garage and then an adjacent room, the statement reads.

Most worrying in cases like this, but also Hillary Clinton with her private mail server, is that high-level politicians in the US seem to have no clue about information security.

This! It is a plague.

Interesting would be to know to what extent there is over-classification of documents

I'm pretty sure nuclear weapons secrets are not overclassified.

It will drag on 2 years, show nothing and meanwhile the GOP congress will be precluded from conducting an investigation. So devious that its brilliant
