Elsewhere in today's newsletter, we lamented the fact that there's so much we don't find out about, at least without undercover cameras. And now, another story illustrates that.
But this time, it was a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request from BLOOMBERG NEWS that led to the exposure of a 74-page email exchange starting on November 7 between National Archives lawyer Gary Stern and Biden attorneys Bob Bauer and Patrick Moore, showing them in the process of the document search. This was five days after Moore reportedly found classified material in Biden's office at the DC Penn Biden Center and one day before the election.
An email from the Archives says they'd like to "come back" and assess the remaining boxes. Then it asks if there are any documents in the "PA Penn Biden offices." We've never been told that Biden had offices in Philadelphia, only in the DC location. They also ask that boxes in "your office in Boston," referring to Moore's office, "remain secure in a locked office." What were Biden documents doing in his Boston attorney's office?
An email from the next day --- Election Day --- says they needed to move the boxes from the Boston office to the JFK library.
Nick Arama at REDSTATE observes that there's quite a difference in tone between these exchanges and those with the Trump people. "This sounds like buddies arranging a golf game," he says. Of course, with the election going on, we weren't told about ANY of it.
BREITBART has a write-up on the story, too, with more details of the conversation. We glean from these emails that the Archives attorney and Biden's personal attorneys were talking about this as early as November 4. And it was on November 7, Election Day, that they arranged a time to secretly collect materials from the DC Penn Biden Center office in a U.S. government van.
Of course, the initial reason for the search of that office by Biden's attorneys STILL remains unknown. I think we're safe in assuming that this is the part we really, really aren't supposed to know.
Kentucky Rep. James Comer, chair of the House Oversight Committee, told FOX NEWS the National Archives was instructed to hide the initial discovery of classified documents from the American people. "There are only two people that could have given those orders," he said, "and that's either the Department of Justice with Merrick Garland. or the White House with Joe Biden."
