On Tuesday, President Joe Biden claimed that he was surprised by the discovery of “boxes” of classified documents in his old, personal office at the Penn Biden Center, from when he was vice president. The sensitive documents, which were found by his personal attorneys, included information on both Ukraine and Iran.
“I was briefed about this discovery, and surprised to learn that there are any government records that were taken there to that office,” Biden said.
I can’t tell if dementia Joe is playing dumb or actually does not remember the crimes he has committed… there’s probably too many to keep track of at this point!
“People know I take classified documents, classified information seriously,” he continued. “I don’t know what’s in the documents. My lawyers have not suggested I not ask what documents they were.”

It was reported on Tuesday via CNN that the document consist of “US intelligence memos and briefing materials” on topics “including Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom, according to a source familiar with the matter.”
However, on Wednesday, New York Times revealed that there may be more classified documents found than we originally thought as the Biden team stopped looking through the boxes of papers when they realized it was classified information:
When Mr. Biden’s lawyers discovered the documents, they immediately cleared the room and stopped looking at the files, according to a person briefed on their account of the incident. As a result, the Biden team does not know how many classified documents had been in the closet and what all of their contents were, according to the person, who asked for anonymity to discuss sensitive information.
Aside from playing dumb, I don’t know how else Biden and his fellow Democrats can spin this fiasco. This is all extremely ironic considering former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home was recently raided by the FBI due to a claim that he took classified documents with him when he left the White House.
Of course they found nothing in the raid.
Yet, there has not been a raid of Biden’s property despite the fact that there is hard evidence of him mishandling sensitive documents.
Biden even threw jabs at Trump at the time, claiming that he didn’t know “how anyone could be that irresponsible” and asked “what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods?”
Now look who is in the hot seat! How could you be that irresponsible, Joe?
