The revelation of Joe Biden’s classified documents from his time as Vice President was a major story this past week and it appears as if the consequences of his actions may be coming soon…
With the newfound power that Republicans have in the House of Representatives, a leader in the intelligence committee is taking initiative to take action against Joe Biden for is misuse of the classified documents.
Republican Representative Mike Turner sent a “damage assessment” request to the Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines on Tuesday.
Turner cites in his request that Joe Biden’s classified documents which were at a think tank of the former Vice President were a “potential violation of laws protecting national security, including the Espionage Act and Presidential Records Act.”
Of course, the story of Joe Biden having personal documents at his own private office are a classic case of him shooting himself in the foot since the President called Donald Trump’s handling of classified documents “irresponsible.”
Not only that, many reports have claimed that Joe Biden’s documents that were at his private location were actually ones that pertained to international relation’s specifically with Ukraine.
The White House attempted to sweep these documents under the rug when they stated that the DOJ was investigating the documents but it was merely a “a small number of documents with classified markings.”
Despite their attempt to downplay the issue of the classified documents Rep. Mike Turner did not hold back in his letter to the Director of National Intelligence.
“Those entrusted with access to classified information have a duty and an obligation to protect it … This issue demands a full and thorough review,” Turner went on to say in his letter to Haines.
It’s unclear what repercussions will come from this discovery but one thing is for sure, the new House of Representatives is not going to let Joe Biden get out of this issue.
A refreshing new reality for many of those exhausted with Biden’s hypocrisy…
