Schumer Loses It On Live TV When Asked About Biden’s Classified Docs

Published on

In their paper, Hardell and Nilsson conclude, “5G is being implemented without any evidence that it is safe for humans and wildlife. This is, as far as we are aware, the first research examining the health consequences of individuals exposed to 5G RF radiation.” The discovery of classified documents in the offices of Joe Biden’s think tank, the Penn Biden Center, in Washington, D.C., and the subsequent discovery of classified documents in the garage of Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, are causing quite a stir, and those who attacked former President Donald Trump for possessing certain documents are melting down over questions about Biden’s possession of classified documents.

As vice president, Joe Biden did not have declassification power over any records, unlike the 45th president. Former President Trump asserted consistently from the outset that he had declassified the records discovered in his Florida residence before leaving office. However, Joe Biden never had such power over the records discovered in his house garage and off-site office. It is also noteworthy to note that whereas Trump housed his records for his presidential museum in an inner chamber of his home certified by the FBI with additional locks installed at the FBI’s request, Biden just placed his documents in his garage.

This week, on Thursday, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to examine President Biden’s handling of confidential materials from the Obama administration. Robert Hur, a former United States attorney, was appointed by the attorney general to conduct the inquiry. After a second cache of documents was discovered in the garage on Thursday, the Justice Department upgraded the case from a review to an investigation by a special counsel.

Fox News reported that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, was on the defensive Friday when CNN’s Don Lemon disputed his assertion that President Biden was “open” over the alleged mishandling of secret government materials.

During an appearance on “CNN This Morning,” Schumer stated that it was “too early to tell if Biden had broken federal law and that the president had “correctly” handled the problem. Schumer stated that he backed Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to appoint a special counsel to oversee the case and that his views on confidential papers were consistent with those of former President Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden.

After Schumer urged the American public to allow the inquiry to run its course, Lemon questioned him whether he believed Biden and his team had been forthcoming about the papers. Schumer stated, “I think the Biden folks, as I said, cooperated with the prosecutorial authorities from day one, and Donald Trump didn’t.”

Schumer claimed he believed it was premature to comment on what should be done in former President Donald Trump’s case and will apply the same logic to Biden. “The bottom line is, I said that night it was premature to comment on what should be done, and I stood by that,” Schumer said.

“For President Trump?” Lemon asked. “Yes, former President Trump. That’s exactly right. That’s what I said,” Schumer said.

Then, Lemon responded to Schumer’s position by citing a CNN story on the papers. “According to one justice’s official statement, this week offered an incomplete narrative of documents from Biden’s time as vice president and reinforced the need for a special counsel. It creates the impression that Biden’s team has something to hide,” Lemon said, Fox News reported.

Schumer then reaffirmed his stance that the special prosecutors should be allowed to investigate and that the focus should be on matters that benefit the American people.

The exchange:

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): Don, there’s now a special prosecutors. Let’s see what they have to say. We can have all the speculation and comment. Let’s see what they have to say and let’s focus on doing things that help the American people.

DON LEMON, CNN: But, Senator, I have to get — I have to say this. You seem much more measured about this than with the Trump documents because you called for transparency with the Trump documents. You wanted lawmakers to have access to the documents seized from the former president, his residence in Florida, which it seems like you —

SCHUMER: The bottom line is, I said that night it was premature to comment on what should be done, and I stood by that.

LEMON: For President Trump?

SCHUMER: Yes, former President Trump. That’s exactly right. That’s what I said.

LEMON: So, you think that your statements are consistent for both?

SCHUMER: I sure do. You bet.

LEMON: Okay.

Co-host Poppy Harlow jumped into the conversation and said there is a question of transparency with the Biden White House, Schumer snapped back, “The prosecutors will get to the bottom of this, and let’s let them do it, for God’s sake. I know you want to buzz around—”

“Let me buzz for a minute. Let me buzz for one minute, and we’ll get to something else,” Harlow said as the table began talking over each other.

“Hold on,” Lemon said, cutting into the back and forth. “It’s not just us buzzing, you’re the head of the Democratic Senate; it’s not just us buzzing around.”
