This scandal just keeps getting funnier.

On Wednesday, the news broke that another trove of marked-as-classified documents had turned up, this time in one of “the President’s other known spaces,” as reported by the DAILY WIRE. These documents were discovered during a massive, armed, early-morning, land-sea-and-air FBI raid of Joe Biden’s beach house. Just kidding.

Anyway, “other known spaces” is as specific as anyone has been so far as to where these other documents were found. No word, either, on when they were found, what level of classification they had, how many there were, if there might be more, or the nature of what was in them. Even without such knowledge, defenders of Biden are minimizing the seriousness of this, just as they maximized the seriousness of what Trump had kept at Mar-A-Lago. They just say what they say, based on nothing but expediency and situational ethics. Bless their hearts.

We also still don’t know the backstory; namely, what led to the original search that turned up the first batch of ten classified documents, as the National Archives had made no document request that would've caused them to go looking. Why on earth would they be going through the documents in that office? The story is that Biden’s attorneys found these papers during a cleaning-out of the office, but, again --- say it with me --- why would BIDEN’S ATTORNEYS be involved in this?

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/classified-biden-docs-featured-material-iran-ukraine-uk

That first batch reportedly contained U.S. intelligence memos and briefing materials on Iran, the U.K, and (...drum roll, please…) Ukraine, and these were found inside Biden’s unsecured private office at the Penn Biden Center, which the University of Pennsylvania insists was NOT funded by Chinese donations but, in a roundabout way, was, and also was probably crawling with Chinese spies—I mean, invited guests.

Many have noted that Biden’s possession of these documents is very, very different from Trump’s possession of documents at Mar-A-Lago. And they’re right! For one thing, Trump, as President, had the authority to declassify documents and essentially do with them as he wished. (President Clinton, after leaving the White House, kept some materials in his sock drawer.) Biden, as Vice President, had no such authority. It makes little difference that Biden’s office cooperated after the fact. Biden did not have the authority to remove any classified material in the first place.

As we reported yesterday, about two weeks BEFORE Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed special counsel Jack Smith to investigate President Trump’s possession of marked-as-classified materials at Mar-A-Lago, he learned that Biden was potentially guilty of the same thing. This was also just six days before the midterm elections, and the notoriously leaky DOJ somehow managed to keep it hush-hush. To quote BREITBART NEWS: “Critics say Garland’s decision not to disclose the revelations before January was a political calculation to benefit the Democrats in the midterms.” You think?

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/01/11/merrick-garland-named-special-counsel-investigate-trump-not-biden-two-weeks-after-biden-classified-docs-discovered/

As you know, Biden went on “60 Minutes” after the Mar-A-Lago raid to speak from his heart about how “irresponsible” Trump had been to keep classified materials there. That is just so fall-down hilarious now, I can hardly pick myself up off the floor to continue. So I’ll link to this Jonathan Turley column that talks about it, along with making numerous other good points. (It was written before the second batch of documents had been found.)

https://jonathanturley.org/2023/01/11/bidens-closet-it-is-not-the-crime-but-the-clarity-that-concerns-the-press-and-pundits/#more-199122

Since Garland has appointed a special counsel to look into Trump’s possession of classified documents, what is he supposed to do about Biden? Garland, according to Turley, has been put into a position that “now borders on the comical.”

After the second batch of marked-as-classified documents was found, Turley wrote again, saying that Garland’s decisions were moving quickly from “the inexplicable to the incomprehensible.” Garland has to admit he knew about Biden’s possession of classified documents when he announced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Trump for essentially the same thing. There was already plenty of reason to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Bidens for the high-dollar influence peddling suggested by emails on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, but Garland has been steadfast in his refusal to do it.

Turley says Biden is “feigning ignorance” by pretending to be surprised about the classified documents. He likens this to Hillary Clinton being “surprised” by the discovery of the Rose Law Firm billing records that implicated her after they were not available to be used in the earlier Whitewater investigation. Why, she had no idea how they got into the White House living quarters!

Come to think of it, she also feigned ignorance about how information could be wiped off electronic devices. (“You mean, like with a cloth?”)

Right now, these apparently sensitive documents are like ballots from a Maricopa County drop-box: no chain of custody. Turley notes that Biden’s documents might have been “at various locations over a five-year period.”

Now that more documents have been discovered, more questions have been raised, and there’s no telling where this will lead.

https://nypost.com/2023/01/11/dont-buy-bidens-surprise-classified-documents-were-moved-at-least-twice/

One place it might be leading will seem controversial and even far-fetched to some, but we were already musing about it and anticipating that a few pundits would bring it up. Someone has: Matt Margolis at PJ MEDIA in, unfortunately, a subscription-only column entitled “The Media May Be Trying To Force Biden Out Of The 2020 Election.” Here it is; we’ll summarize and comment below.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2023/01/11/the-media-may-be-trying-to-force-biden-out-of-the-2024-election-n1660910

Think about the timeline. The documents were discovered about a week before the midterm election. Naturally, the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) wouldn’t have wanted to do anything then that could hurt the Democrat Party. But why this long after the election? Why have they waited to let it out?

The media are acting out of character, suddenly reporting a scandal that damages Biden. (Until now, the strategy, for everything from the price of gas to Hunter's laptop, has been to blame Vladimir Putin whenever possible.) They’re reflexively defending Biden, of course, but the scandal is very young, and as Margolis reported, several anchors at CNN even admitted how damaging it is to him. What??

This is happening just as Biden seems on the verge of announcing his candidacy for 2024 --- never mind that most people, even most Democrats, do NOT want the old guy to run again. He’s ignoring this political reality. But even if he managed by hook or by crook to win a second term, everyone knows he wouldn’t serve it out. And then we’d have...who, “President Kamala”? The powers behind the throne have surely got something to pound her with, too, in a well-timed scandal that takes her off the ticket, if that’s what it takes.

They probably could have continued to hide the fact that Biden had these documents. But another benefit of revealing it now is that if they go after Biden, it makes them seem more even-handed when they go after Trump. Our guess is that the likely goal is to take out Biden AND Trump.

Pardon our cynicism, but little in the political news cycle --- especially when it comes to the Democrat machine --- happens by accident. Consider all the complex, multi-front planning that went into the Russia Hoax, which successfully dominated the news for years. Any time it appears that a switch has been flipped for the media hounds to start barking in unison over a particular story, one has to wonder why.

    I thought they would have already dumped Harris and then get rid of Biden so Pelosi could be king, but they blew that. Long term thinking, is rein in Harris with promise of two years (supervised) presidency with no shot at 2024 re-election and then name Newsom or Schiff vp and run them in 2024. CNN criticizing Biden is tantamount to packing his bags for Delaware permanently.

    Governor Huckabee, I have a question. Suppose Biden is prosecuted and found guilty of taking these documents to his residence. Would that establish a precedence so that other Presidents may be prosecuted for having such documents in their homes or private occupancies? If so, would that make way for President Trump to be convicted of such an offense? Because as President, Biden may pardon himself, but since Trump is no longer President, he can not.

    After reading everything, I BELIEVE that the DemoRats do want to get rid of Trump, because of his ability to Drain the Swamp and Make America Greater and Biden, because he is now a noose around their neck and he is hampering their ability for One World Order and the total destruction of the America we know. I wonder if the (20) & McCarthy can get a handle on any of this? I hope ALL the Republicans are willing to step up and STOP our destruction. God Help Us. Amen

    I'll comment on the Title 42 for now. If we have to be in a state of emergency for 90 days for covid then the immigration flow has to be in a state of emergency for 90 days as well and stay on the other side of the border for 90 days until the state of emergency of covid is lifted.

    I have also been thinking the document "scandal" may be a way to get rid of both Biden and Trump. The downside for those who might be making that play is, "Now, how do we stop Desantis?"

The powers behind the throne have surely got something to pound her with, too, in a well-timed scandal that takes her off the ticket, if that’s what it takes.

    They probably could have continued to hide the fact that Biden had these documents. But another benefit of revealing it now is that if they go after Biden, it makes them seem more even-handed when they go after Trump. Our guess is that the likely goal is to take out Biden AND Trump.

    Pardon our cynicism, but little in the political news cycle --- especially when it comes to the Democrat machine --- happens by accident. Consider all the complex, multi-front planning that went into the Russia Hoax, which successfully dominated the news for years. Any time it appears that a switch has been flipped for the media hounds to start barking in unison over a particular story, one has to wonder why.

      Watch for it. They’re going to take out Kamala, ‘select’ Michelle as the replacement VP and then take out Joe. Just in time to start campaigning for 2024.

      I thought they would have already dumped Harris and then get rid of Biden so Pelosi could be king, but they blew that. Long term thinking, is rein in Harris with promise of two years (supervised) presidency with no shot at 2024 re-election and then name Newsom or Schiff vp and run them in 2024. CNN criticizing Biden is tantamount to packing his bags for Delaware permanently.
      I'm glad you keep me informed. Thank you.

      Governor Huckabee, I have a question. Suppose Biden is prosecuted and found guilty of taking these documents to his residence. Would that establish a precedence so that other Presidents may be prosecuted for having such documents in their homes or private occupancies? If so, would that make way for President Trump to be convicted of such an offense? Because as President, Biden may pardon himself, but since Trump is no longer President, he can not.

      After reading everything, I BELIEVE that the DemoRats do want to get rid of Trump, because of his ability to Drain the Swamp and Make America Greater and Biden, because he is now a noose around their neck and he is hampering their ability for One World Order and the total destruction of the America we know. I wonder if the (20) & McCarthy can get a handle on any of this? I hope ALL the Republicans are willing to step up and STOP our destruction. God Help Us. Amen

      Hi Mike,

      I'll comment on the Title 42 for now. If we have to be in a state of emergency for 90 days for covid then the immigration flow has to be in a state of emergency for 90 days as well and stay on the other side of the border for 90 days until the state of emergency of covid is lifted.

      I have also been thinking the document "scandal" may be a way to get rid of both Biden and Trump. The downside for those who might be making that play is, "Now, how do we stop Desantis?"

    Election 2024 Coverage

    January 12, 2023
    |

    This scandal just keeps getting funnier.

    On Wednesday, the news broke that another trove of marked-as-classified documents had turned up, this time in one of “the President’s other known spaces,” as reported by the DAILY WIRE. These documents were discovered during a massive, armed, early-morning, land-sea-and-air FBI raid of Joe Biden’s beach house. Just kidding.

    Anyway, “other known spaces” is as specific as anyone has been so far as to where these other documents were found. No word, either, on when they were found, what level of classification they had, how many there were, if there might be more, or the nature of what was in them. Even without such knowledge, defenders of Biden are minimizing the seriousness of this, just as they maximized the seriousness of what Trump had kept at Mar-A-Lago. They just say what they say, based on nothing but expediency and situational ethics. Bless their hearts.

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/review-of-biden-spaces-turns-up-second-batch-of-classified-docs-report

    We also still don’t know the backstory; namely, what led to the original search that turned up the first batch of ten classified documents, as the National Archives had made no document request that would've caused them to go looking. Why on earth would they be going through the documents in that office? The story is that Biden’s attorneys found these papers during a cleaning-out of the office, but, again --- say it with me --- why would BIDEN’S ATTORNEYS be involved in this?

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/classified-biden-docs-featured-material-iran-ukraine-uk

    That first batch reportedly contained U.S. intelligence memos and briefing materials on Iran, the U.K, and (...drum roll, please…) Ukraine, and these were found inside Biden’s unsecured private office at the Penn Biden Center, which the University of Pennsylvania insists was NOT funded by Chinese donations but, in a roundabout way, was, and also was probably crawling with Chinese spies—I mean, invited guests.

    Many have noted that Biden’s possession of these documents is very, very different from Trump’s possession of documents at Mar-A-Lago. And they’re right! For one thing, Trump, as President, had the authority to declassify documents and essentially do with them as he wished. (President Clinton, after leaving the White House, kept some materials in his sock drawer.) Biden, as Vice President, had no such authority. It makes little difference that Biden’s office cooperated after the fact. Biden did not have the authority to remove any classified material in the first place.

    As we reported yesterday, about two weeks BEFORE Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed special counsel Jack Smith to investigate President Trump’s possession of marked-as-classified materials at Mar-A-Lago, he learned that Biden was potentially guilty of the same thing. This was also just six days before the midterm elections, and the notoriously leaky DOJ somehow managed to keep it hush-hush. To quote BREITBART NEWS: “Critics say Garland’s decision not to disclose the revelations before January was a political calculation to benefit the Democrats in the midterms.” You think?

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/01/11/merrick-garland-named-special-counsel-investigate-trump-not-biden-two-weeks-after-biden-classified-docs-discovered/

    As you know, Biden went on “60 Minutes” after the Mar-A-Lago raid to speak from his heart about how “irresponsible” Trump had been to keep classified materials there. That is just so fall-down hilarious now, I can hardly pick myself up off the floor to continue. So I’ll link to this Jonathan Turley column that talks about it, along with making numerous other good points. (It was written before the second batch of documents had been found.)

    https://jonathanturley.org/2023/01/11/bidens-closet-it-is-not-the-crime-but-the-clarity-that-concerns-the-press-and-pundits/#more-199122

    Since Garland has appointed a special counsel to look into Trump’s possession of classified documents, what is he supposed to do about Biden? Garland, according to Turley, has been put into a position that “now borders on the comical.”

    After the second batch of marked-as-classified documents was found, Turley wrote again, saying that Garland’s decisions were moving quickly from “the inexplicable to the incomprehensible.” Garland has to admit he knew about Biden’s possession of classified documents when he announced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Trump for essentially the same thing. There was already plenty of reason to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Bidens for the high-dollar influence peddling suggested by emails on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, but Garland has been steadfast in his refusal to do it.

    Turley says Biden is “feigning ignorance” by pretending to be surprised about the classified documents. He likens this to Hillary Clinton being “surprised” by the discovery of the Rose Law Firm billing records that implicated her after they were not available to be used in the earlier Whitewater investigation. Why, she had no idea how they got into the White House living quarters!

    Come to think of it, she also feigned ignorance about how information could be wiped off electronic devices. (“You mean, like with a cloth?”)

    Right now, these apparently sensitive documents are like ballots from a Maricopa County drop-box: no chain of custody. Turley notes that Biden’s documents might have been “at various locations over a five-year period.”

    Now that more documents have been discovered, more questions have been raised, and there’s no telling where this will lead.

    https://nypost.com/2023/01/11/dont-buy-bidens-surprise-classified-documents-were-moved-at-least-twice/

    One place it might be leading will seem controversial and even far-fetched to some, but we were already musing about it and anticipating that a few pundits would bring it up. Someone has: Matt Margolis at PJ MEDIA in, unfortunately, a subscription-only column entitled “The Media May Be Trying To Force Biden Out Of The 2020 Election.” Here it is; we’ll summarize and comment below.

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2023/01/11/the-media-may-be-trying-to-force-biden-out-of-the-2024-election-n1660910

    Think about the timeline. The documents were discovered about a week before the midterm election. Naturally, the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) wouldn’t have wanted to do anything then that could hurt the Democrat Party. But why this long after the election? Why have they waited to let it out?

    The media are acting out of character, suddenly reporting a scandal that damages Biden. (Until now, the strategy, for everything from the price of gas to Hunter's laptop, has been to blame Vladimir Putin whenever possible.) They’re reflexively defending Biden, of course, but the scandal is very young, and as Margolis reported, several anchors at CNN even admitted how damaging it is to him. What??

    This is happening just as Biden seems on the verge of announcing his candidacy for 2024 --- never mind that most people, even most Democrats, do NOT want the old guy to run again. He’s ignoring this political reality. But even if he managed by hook or by crook to win a second term, everyone knows he wouldn’t serve it out. And then we’d have...who, “President Kamala”? The powers behind the throne have surely got something to pound her with, too, in a well-timed scandal that takes her off the ticket, if that’s what it takes.

    They probably could have continued to hide the fact that Biden had these documents. But another benefit of revealing it now is that if they go after Biden, it makes them seem more even-handed when they go after Trump. Our guess is that the likely goal is to take out Biden AND Trump.

    Pardon our cynicism, but little in the political news cycle --- especially when it comes to the Democrat machine --- happens by accident. Consider all the complex, multi-front planning that went into the Russia Hoax, which successfully dominated the news for years. Any time it appears that a switch has been flipped for the media hounds to start barking in unison over a particular story, one has to wonder why.
