Two tiered justice.
It looks like the Democrat elite (who are really running the country) are throwing Biden away. They have other plans for 2024.
In the same week news broke that Joe Biden had taken classified government documents from his time as vice president in the Obama administration to a private Penn Biden Center office, another story Wednesday reported that those weren’t the only sensitive documents Biden took with him in an alleged violation of the Presidential Records Act (Townhall). NBC: Aides to President Joe Biden have discovered at least one additional batch of classified documents in a location separate from the Washington office he used after leaving the Obama administration, according to a person familiar with the matter. Biden told reporters Tuesday that he was “surprised” by the discovery, and that he didn’t know what was in the documents (NBC). Katie Pavlich: If Biden “doesn’t know” what’s in the documents, how does he know there wasn’t other classified information in his unsecured office (Twitter)?

Today, counsel to President Biden revealed that classified documents were found in Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware residence.
This is the second batch of classified materials that were taken by Biden in 2017 – the first being those found at the Penn-Biden Center. Here’s the relevant part of the statement of Richard Sauber, Special Counsel to President Biden (highlights are ours):
“Following the discovery of government documents at the Penn Biden Center in November 2022, and coordinating closely with the Department of Justice, the President’s lawyers have searched the President’s Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, residence – the other locations where files from his Vice-Presidential office might have been shipped in the course of the 2017 transition. The lawyers completed that review last night.
During the review, lawyers discovered among personal and political papers a small number of additional Obama-Biden records with classified markings. All but one of these documents were found in a storage space in the President’s Wilmington residence garage. One document consisting of one page was discovered among stored materials in an adjacent room. No documents were found in the Rehoboth Beach residence.”
This statement follows reporting that Attorney General Merrick Garland has assigned the U.S. Attorney in Chicago, John Lausch, Jr., “to review” these documents. The FBI is “also involved in the U.S. Attorney’s inquiry.” Lausch is a hold-over from the Trump Administration, one of the few U.S. attorneys not forced to resign during the transfer of power. In the past, he reportedly helped the DOJ speed up the processing of documents “in response to a House Judiciary Committee subpoena that related to the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.”
What should we make of these latest developments?
First, Biden’s attorneys are conducting these searches of Biden’s residences to show the DOJ that their cooperation is full and transparent. These are steps done to avoid the potential for any type of subpoena. Biden is convincing his own Justice Department that a search will not be necessary. Attorney General Garland will undoubtedly agree.
Second, there’s been some speculation that this is part of an effort to throw Biden under the bus. Not seeing it. There’s bigger issues where Biden is more vulnerable, namely corruption.
Third, to state the obvious – yes, there is a double standard. Yes, the Biden DOJ subjects Trump to standards that Biden himself can’t maintain. Yes, Biden’s homes won’t be raided. Yes, there won’t be inaccurate leaks from Biden DOJ about what Biden’s classified documents contained. In other words, yes, it will be business as usual.
Fourth, why release this information now? To get ahead of the story and control how it’s released. From the Administration’s perspective, better to disclose the discovery of classified documents on their own – with their own spin – rather than be subject to anonymous leaks they can’t control. Thus, they put out the written statement and give Biden something to read:
BREAKING: The second batch of classified documents were found in Biden’s garage, and an adjacent room in his Wilmington, DE estate.

Biden aides find second batch of classified documents at separate location
Classified documents were also previously found at Biden’s private office located at the Penn Biden Center.
President Biden aides have found at least one more batch of classified documents located at a location other than the Penn Biden Center office in Washington, D.C., that he used in the years after he was vice president during the Obama administration, Fox News has confirmed.
A source told NBC News, which first reported the development, that aides to Biden have been searching for additional documents that contained classified material in other locations that may have been used by the president.
The development comes after a separate batch of classified documents were recovered from Biden’s private office located at the Penn Biden Center in November……
