In an interview on Friday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy questioned a significant aspect of the issue involving President Joe Biden’s sensitive documents.
On November 2, as his lawyers were removing Biden from his office at the Penn Biden Center, a think tank in Washington, D.C., they discovered the first classified records pertaining to Biden’s time as vice president.
McCarthy questioned why Biden was being moved out of the office by his lawyers and not movers during an appearance on Fox News.
He replied, “Yes, we are, and you’re missing one question: They claim the lawyers located these records. “Who instructed the lawyers to search there?”
“Someone else was aware of the documents’ existence all the time. Why else would the lawyers even bother looking? McCoy enquired. Who employs lawyers as movers?
Since Biden’s attorneys discovered the secret information in his private office, they have discovered additional classified documents at Biden’s residence in Wilmington three times: an indeterminate number was discovered inside the garage on December 20, one of the documents was discovered in Biden’s study on January 11, and five more were discovered in the study on January 12.
After having received a recommendation from U.S. Attorney for the Illinois Northern District John Lausch, who was asked to conduct an initial review of the case, that a special counsel should be appointed, U.S. AG Merrick Garland hired former U.S. Lawyer Robert Hur to start serving as special counsel in this investigation. Hur had been in office during the Trump admin.
According to reports, in accordance with a consensus reached with Biden’s personal attorneys, the Department of Justice declined to designate FBI officers to supervise the search of Biden’s house. According to reports, department officials felt that FBI oversight was unnecessary in light of Biden’s cooperation and would significantly impede the federal probe into sensitive records relating to him.
On Thursday, in reaction to the incident, Biden said that he had “no regrets” about his conduct and that being asked about the inquiry “quite frankly really irritates” him.
Biden said, “We are completely cooperating as well as looking forward to this getting addressed fast. “I believe you will discover that there isn’t anything there. I do not feel guilty. That is exactly what we are doing; I’m doing as the attorneys have instructed me to. There isn’t anything there.
