Trump and His GOP Toadies Furiously Spin Bogus Nothingburger Story About Biden Documents

The latest outrage by Donald Trump has taken off with the news that a handful of classified documents were found at an office that President Biden used prior to running for president. Of course, all classified documents should be handled properly and not doing so is cause for concern. However, Trump is in a veritable frenzy, mistakenly thinking he has caught Biden in a juicy and hypocritical something-or-other-gate.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

Throughout the day on Monday Trump dropped a dozen posts on the subject of the Biden documents on his pitifully floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. They were incrementally more preposterous as he proceeded. Which is hard to believe considering the way this all started when the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker.

Trump began his Monday mania with a comment that alleged as fact a bunch of pure bullpucky. He wrote

“When is the FBI going to raid the many homes of Joe Biden, perhaps even the White House? These documents were definitely not declassified.”

That was followed by several affirmations from his flunkies in Congress who were typically aligned with Trump’s deliberate deceit. They included Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ronny Jackson, and Andy Biggs, who all claimed, without evidence, that Biden “stole classified documents” and had no power to declassify them. Greene went even further to malign the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as “communists” who must be held accountable.

But this doesn’t stop there. Trump went on to dispense crackpot conspiracy theories about China financing the Biden office and subsequently gaining access to the documents. He ranted that…

“Wow! The Biden Think Tank is funded by CHINA!!! Also, a V.P. cannot Declassify documents, which are covered by the Federal Records Act, which is Criminal and MUCH TOUGHER than the Presidential Records Act, which is NOT Criminal. A President, me, can Declassify. ?How much more information has China been given?”

And that

“The amount was 54 Million Dollars that the Biden Think Tank received from China. That’s a lot of money. They saw the Classified Documents!”

Trump linked to an article in Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post as supposed proof of these churlish charges. While the article did note that the the University of Pennsylvania had received millions of dollars, it never linked those donations to the Biden office. It is common for universities to receive donations from many sources, including corporate sponsors an alumni. However, even in the Post’s article it was revealed that…

“A University of Pennsylvania spokesman denied any anonymous Chinese money had gone to the center. ‘The Penn Biden Center has never solicited or received any gifts from any Chinese or other foreign entity. In fact, the University has never solicited any gifts for the Center,’ [University spokesman] Stephen MacCarthy said.”

BACKGROUND:

According to reports, the half dozen or so documents in question were found in a private, secure office at the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Biden Center. Biden didn’t know that the documents were there and they were likely taken inadvertently. They were discovered by Biden’s legal team who, unlike Trump, did the right thing. They immediately notified the National Archives who took custody of them. Then Attorney General Merrick Garland assigned a Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney to investigate further and, instead of whining and accusing the FBI of conducting a “witch hunt” like Trump, Biden and his staff cooperated fully.

Compare that to the hundreds of classified documents deliberately taken and hoarded by Trump at his publicly accessible Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. His response to inquiries were flagrant lies, telling the FBI that he had no such documents. Then, after the FBI discovered that there were more documents, Trump defied a subpoena to return them. He refused to cooperate with NARA and the DoJ, obstructing justice and falsely insisting that the documents were declassified with his mind and that they belonged to him.

Trump and his Republican spinmeisters are now outraged that there haven’t been raids on all of Biden’s properties, including the White House. But that’s only because the Biden team has been cooperative, so there has been no need for subpoenas or subsequent FBI search warrants. Also, how do they know that President Obama hadn’t previously declassified the documents with his mind? And what exactly do they think they would find if they raided the White House? Classified documents are permitted there.

Trump and the GOP are only exploiting this news because they think that it will vindicate him for his own legal dilemmas. But if Trump now claims that the presence of these documents at a Biden office is a criminal act, isn’t he confessing that he is a criminal? And since the charges against Trump are valid, but those he’s making against Biden are bogus, it’s clear that he should be held accountable. And the sooner the better.

  1. Yet again, the Traitors prove any accusation by Their God and repeated by his fellow worshipers is actually a confession they are trying so hard to distract everyone from remembering.

    All Traitors should die.

  2. It remains that Biden is graciously cooperating while Republicans, particularly House Republicans yell, “It’s Biden’s duty is protect the documents!” And, worse, MTG opening her mouth once again was both sickening and entertaining. Does she think she is Speaker of the House? She probably is, considering the shape of the House now. May God help us.

  3. My God, these damn traitor assholes make me sick. MTG knows she has to always put her worthless damn two cents worth in by running her facial anus with plenty of excrement being spewed out. Thats all that two bit adulterous tramp knows how to do. She is about as useless as nipples on a boar hog. TUMP just admitted to his guilt by bringing this whole thing up, or heard it from someone else. The lying ass Rethugs and MAGA creeps are worse than a house infested with bed bugs and roaches. These people need to be exterminated like a house should be when it is infested with pests like them. Roaches and beg bugs, and for good measure fleas too. The people are as worthless as these insects are and we would be much better off if they were gone for good. Get ready for a 2 year circus and a comedy of errors with these psychopaths in the house of representatives. What a horrendous mess this is going to be. I sure do dread it…

    • And, to the start line. Bang! Jim Jordan, of whom I am grossly ashamed, from my state of Ohio, is apparently the new chairman of the house subcommittee set to investigate the Federal investigation of Trump and also the Justice Department. I dread ALL of them. From insurrectionists to far right extremists, the latter of which seems to be ALL of them.

      • I have read that some people refer Jim Jordan as ”Gym Jordan” I wonder about that, and Judy, do you know why they call him ”Gym Jordan?” I am grossly ashamed of MTG from the state of Georgia… and it’s really awful that she came from a town only 55 miles from me.. The House rep for my area is Rethuglican Drew Ferguson, and i sure as heck don’t like him either. I got into an argument with him through emails about a year ago and he is a dirty rotten MAGAt also. I don’t like his attitude at all. He is an asshole too. I really like the Senators for Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. both of them are dedicated Democrats and they always answer my emails and are courteous and helpful when they reply to my emails. I don’t send emails to Drew Ferguson anymore, i do not like that arrogant creep. He is a typical MAGA Rethuglican..

        • I used to correspond with Dave Joyce representative to the House from my Lake County Ohio. He’s Republican but made sense. Then his next newsletter started with congratulating McCarthy and the plans of the new “Republican House”. I wrote him, PLEASE don’t contact me again! They call him Gym Jordan because when he was the wrestling coach of OSU, he tried to cover up sexual improprieties of the team’s doctor. We need to call some of the wrestlers affected to testify before Congress. I read about this in Yahoo News, of whom I feel publishes too many far right articles. One is too many.

          • Wow, i didn’t know this about Jordan, thank you, Judy for informing me about this. I didn’t know he was the coach of the OSU wrestling team either…and you are right about far right articles, i can’t stand to read even one of them. Those articles are jammed full of blatant lies and are a disgrace for bragging on the GQP when they are nothing but a cult and are against the values of the United States and democracy. I totally despise Rethugs and their warped sense of what is evil and what is good for our nation.

          • Thanks Midge for the links, i will check them out about the ”GYM”.

  4. Double thanks, Midge. Was the most detailed article I have read on the matter. I couldn’t find the comments, though. Maybe these comments on News Corpse will suffice.
