A lot of us have been asking when the FBI raids on President Joe Biden’s houses begins. The FBI would have found those documents in the garage in Wilmington, spread them all over the garage floor, and leaked photos of them (not).
What’s even more unbelievable is that Biden’s own lawyers are the ones doing the search for classified documents that aren’t supposed to be there. Ian Sams, White House spokesman for oversight and investigations, released a statement over the weekend saying he’d been to Wilmington Thursday to assist in the search because he has security clearance, which Biden’s lawyers don’t. So if one of Biden’s lawyers finds a document marked classified, he has to avert his eyes because he doesn’t have clearance to read it and immediately stop the search.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting Tuesday that the Justice Department decided against monitoring the search for more classified documents at Biden’s home.

WSJ EXCLUSIVE "the two sides agreed that Mr. Biden’s personal attorneys would inspect the homes, notify the Justice Department as soon as they identified any other potentially classified records, and arrange for law-enforcement authorities to take them."

Officials opted for a “hands-off approach” because they saw Biden’s team cooperating with the investigation.
It feels like they're trying to make this look as bad as possible because they just really don't care. https://t.co/0uaLo66unK

So let me get this right. DOJ knew and let lawyers without clearances continue searching? Sounds like someone from the WH planted this story.

How can anyone defend this?

You mean the less they know, the easier it is to pretend they’re doing good?

Right because it totally makes sense for them to allow Biden's own attorneys, that lack security clearance, to search for classified documents… 🤦♂️

Lmfao. In what healthy democracy does the President’s personal lawyer get to conduct the investigation instead of law enforcement?

The narrative seems to be that Biden is cooperating, so it’s OK (probably just an accident) that he had classified documents in more than one unsecure location that had been there for six years and taken when he was vice president.
