According to reports, the Biden administration started informing the "Gang of Eight" last week about the confidential document incident involving President Joe Biden and the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's Florida home.
The Biden administration has started to provide requested information to the "Gang of Eight" about Biden's classified document scandal and the raid on Trump's residence following months of stonewalling, according to Breitbart News.
The Biden administration has started to provide requested information to the group about Biden's classified document scandal and the raid on Trump's residence following months of stonewalling, according to Punchbowl News. The top four members of Congress as well as the chairs of the Senate and House intelligence committees make up the so-called "Gang Of Eight" of politicians.
After Special Counsel Jack Smith was chosen by Joe Biden's attorney general to look into the former president's handling of information, the Justice Department (DOJ) previously obstructed Congress from performing oversight on the Trump raid.
Warner forewarned that the Biden administration's frantic attempt to have Congress reauthorize its warrantless monitoring program would suffer as a result of the obstruction. The law will cease on December 31, 2023.
One month after the DOJ's special counsel started looking into Trump, information concerning Biden's theft of secret materials found at the Penn Biden Center became public. Days later, more were discovered at his Delaware house. Robert Hur, a special counsel, was chosen to look into Biden's improper handling of classified material in the wake of the revelations.
Why Biden's lawyers originally searched for his unlawfully hidden documents at the Biden Penn Center is unknown. The search has not been given a justification or cause by either the White House or the DOJ.
In contrast to the numerous leaks about the Trump raid, there have been very few regarding the substance of the confidential papers stored at the Biden Penn Center. But, a CNN source said that the confidential documents discovered at Biden's house concern Iran, the UK, and Ukraine, three countries with whom the Biden family has business dealings.
According to reports, White House officials were skeptical about how the secret document controversy involving Biden was revealed to the public after just a small number of White House and DOJ officials were aware of the infraction.
The scandal was leaked to CBS News on January 9, weeks after the initial cache was discovered by Biden's personal attorneys on November 2. The establishment media has reported at least three times that Biden and the DOJ agreed to keep the scandal from the public view, with likely no plans to disclose it.
The White House's response to Biden's improper handling of sensitive material contrasts with the way it handled Trump.
According to paperwork that America First Legal was able to get from the National Archives, Biden's White House participated in the search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago home through a "special access request."
The FBI conducted a raid at Mar-a-Lago on August 8, 2022, with the goal of locating allegedly secret papers. Officials in the Biden administration were reportedly "stunned" to learn of the unusual action, according to the establishment media. Moreover, the Archives said that it had "not been involved in the DOJ probe."
Contrary to what the Archives informed Congress, papers made public on Monday by America First Legal indicate that the FBI really gained access to the materials through a "special access request" made by the Biden White House on behalf of the DOJ.
