Former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) spoke with Breitbart News about how the federal government’s handling of President Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal compared to how they investigated former President Donald Trump is “an obvious showing of the two-tiered justice system.”
Matthew Boyle, the presenter of Breitbart News Saturday, began the interview by asking Devin Nunes for his thoughts on President Joe Biden’s confidential document issue and how it differs from the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
Nunes stated that the government’s handling of the secret document incident involving Biden is “an obvious showing of the two-tiered justice system.”
“It comes down to, once again, whatever they accuse you of doing, they’re doing themselves. And this is just another example of that,” Nunes added, before noting that, unlike Biden, Trump’s staff was aware of the records and welcomed law enforcement to Mar-a-Lago to examine the White House materials.
“And so, the whole idea of what’s really happening here is the DOJ is hopelessly corrupt. And, I hate to say that. I thought it would get better after we exposed the Russia hoax, but really what’s happened is they just continued it,” Nunes told Boyle. “And I think that’s what you’re seeing is just a continuation of the weaponization of the whole United States government.”
Nunes then criticized Biden for making the “biggest political gaffe in history” by admitting that he kept the classified documents in his locked garage next to his Corvette because “he essentially admitted to illegal activity.”
“I mean, it’s just plain and simple, classified documents have to move from one SCIF, which is a compartment and facility that’s designed, and it has to move from one to another with a locked capacity,” Nunes explained.
Boyle then pressed Nunes to clarify Trump’s assertion that he had previously declassified the Mar-a-Lago docs. Trump, unlike past Vice President Biden, had the ability to declassify materials, according to Nunes. He also discussed the “clear contrast” between Trump’s and Biden’s situations: Biden maintained the sensitive materials in many locations around the nation.
Well, first of all, the easy answer is that the President United States has declassification authority. A vice president does not. And for sure, a former vice president does not, so we don’t even know. There’s so many unanswered questions with the Biden documents, starting with, where were they? How did they get there? We’ve kind of heard different versions of, “oh, people were in a hurry, and they took them out of the White House, and they ended up at the Penn Biden center” — you know, unsecured, locked in a closet, or supposedly in a closet, you know, across the street from the United States Capitol in just a standard commercial building.
Okay, well, that was the first explanation. But then you look at it, and the Penn Biden Center didn’t open until, I think, the beginning of ’18. So there’s a year there that doesn’t make any sense. And then you’ve got the situation where you’ve got them — they were in his garage, and then two additional locations in his house that Hunter Biden rented or stayed in. I mean, we don’t even know the answer to that. So that’s the obvious difference.
Nunes also observed that the judge who authorized the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago issued a broad search warrant, which explains why the FBI searched Barron Trump’s bedroom and Melania Trump’s closet.
Nunes also slammed the FBI’s “little photo op where they spread documents out all over the floor.”

“We don’t know what those are other than just cover pages that they spread out all over the floor. I mean, this is high-level, third-world corruption by the DOJ and the FBI,” Nunes said. “And remember, when they did the photo ops and all that stuff, started releasing that and leaking that? They probably knew at the time that Biden had a much bigger problem.” CONTINUE READING…
