President Joe Biden signed off to allow the FBI to review former President Donald Trump’s records, according to a letter.
The National Archives and Records Administration shared the information regarding the permission.

“NARA identified items marked as classified national security information, up to the level of Top Secret and including Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Program materials,” NARA acting head Debra Wall wrote in the letter.
“NARA informed the Department of Justice about that discovery, which prompted the Department to ask the President to request that NARA provide the FBI with access to the boxes at issue so that the FBI and others in the Intelligence Community could examine them,” it added.
As @PressSec said, of course Biden didn’t know the raid was taking place. But the answer cleverly avoids acknowledging his lawyer signed off on the supposed independent DOJ investigation.
What an unnecessary mess. https://t.co/M3FV2XtoPW

And there’s more
“The day after Wall’s letter, May 11, a grand jury issued a subpoena for documents bearing classification markings that were still held by Trump. On June 3, DOJ and FBI officials arrived at Mar-a-Lago to retrieve responsive documents from Trump’s attorneys,” the New York Post reported.
“However, officials were led to believe the former president was storing still more classified materials, leading to US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart issuing a search warrant for Trump’s estate Aug. 5,” it added.

The clear contrast shows that Biden either knew or didn’t know what he was signing. In either case, he was responsible.
The new letter shows Biden was much more involved than he claimed, something the public deserves to know.
The issue may backfire for Democrats, however, as the raid could send more voters to the ballot box in November to vote against leftist politicians in Washington.
