The FBI discovered additional classified materials at the residences of former Vice President Mike Pence, former President Joe Biden, and former President Donald Trump, which the Justice Department then provided to congressional leaders.
The Biden administration is presumably still working with lawmakers, despite months of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans that crucial information on the seized documents was withheld.
“The documents were provided to the Gang of Eight, the top four party leaders, and the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate intelligence committees, three sources familiar told Axios.” The source added that the congressional members were not aware of the residences from which each document originated.
Trump provided the FBI with documents during a notable arrest in August. After discovering secret materials at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., prior to the November 2020 presidential election, agents quickly located additional classified materials at one of Biden’s Delaware residences.
Additionally, records were discovered in January at Pence’s residence in Indiana.
After searching Biden’s Delaware residence and the Penn Biden Center, the Department of Justice is contemplating searching additional locations for any secret materials he may possess.
“Justice Department officials are also considering the possibility of conducting other consensual searches at locations linked to Mr. Biden, said the source familiar with the investigation,” the report said.
According to newly discovered documents, the Chinese government and benefactors associated with Hunter Biden’s business dealings supported a university that housed a research group at the center of the Joe Biden classified documents dispute.
“New records unearthed by the conservative watchdog Americans for Public Trust and reviewed by the Washington Examiner reveal the identities of many donors to the University of Pennsylvania — home to the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. Some of the donors found on the list also have ties to Hunter Biden’s past deals and the Chinese government,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“On the heels of learning that the Biden family received millions of dollars from foreign entities, this latest revelation raises further questions about the scope of President Biden’s ties to China,” AFT’s Executive Director Caitlin Sutherland said “We now know that the University of Pennsylvania — home to Joe Biden’s namesake think tank — received a massive increase in contributions from China and Hong Kong as he was ramping up his presidential campaign, and has raked in millions from CCP-tied donors since he took office.”
“The president owes the American people answers about the depth of his financial connections to foreign nationals who are undercutting our nation’s security and prosperity,” he added.
In addition, the DOJ has been sluggish to provide an update to Congress.
In addition, despite the fact that a special counsel is investigating Biden’s situation alongside Trump, the Republicans who have controlled the House since January are unable to learn more about his alleged handling of classified documents.
“House Republicans called on the Biden administration to release more information about its handling of documents marked classified found in a private office once used by” Biden, CBS News reported.
“The request from Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer came after the committee interviewed Gary Stern, the top lawyer for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), in January,” the report continued.
Trump indicated last week that he would soon be indicted as a result of the investigation into the management of classified documents by special counsel Jack Smith.
“A very interesting situation is taking place,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “While I was in office, Bill Barr, as attorney general, was very slow & unenthusiastic about going after Joe & Hunter Biden regarding their possible criminal activity. Much was being reported in the media. It was hard getting him to move, but I always felt he believed you just don’t go after Presidents, V.P.’s, & presidential candidates very cavalierly. I understood that, & was sort of OK with it. Now Biden thugs want to indict me, for nothing!”
