National Archives caught with egg on their face after classified documents found at Biden’s think tank, home

Last year the National Archives tried to squash discussions about Obama mishandling classified documents by taking them with him when he left the White House.

In doing so, they claimed that all documents from the Obama administration had been “securely moved” to locations that met “strict archival and security standards.”

Just a few weeks later, Biden’s attorneys would find classified documents at Biden’s think tank and home.

Here’s more from Fox News:

The National Archives dismissed reports about mishandled documents from the Obama-Biden administration as “false and misleading” just weeks before the first batch of classified documents were uncovered at the Penn Biden Center last fall.

The National Archives responded to questions about the documents on Oct. 11, less than a month before classified documents would be found at the Biden think tank in Washington. It argued that all documents from Obama administration had been “securely moved” to locations that met “strict archival and security standards.”

“Reports that indicate or imply that those Presidential records were in the possession of the former Presidents or their representatives, after they left office, or that the records were housed in substandard conditions, are false and misleading,” the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) wrote.

NARA did not respond to a request for comment on whether President Biden’s garage in Wilmington, Delaware met its “strict archival and security standards.”

I bet they didn’t respond. They wanted everyone to believe that the Obama administration had done everything correctly with classified documents. Now we find out that’s simply not true.

Now maybe they didn’t know about these classified documents. Or maybe they are run by political hacks trying to protect Democrats while targeting Republicans. I think the later is where most of us will land.
