In the past couple weeks, Biden has been slammed by his document scandal.
Since then the FBI has found more and more classified documents in Biden’s possession, and many are wondering how deep this controversy really goes.
Michael Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan, has disclosed that while Joe Biden was a senator during Reagan’s presidency, he had warned Reagan that he would reveal any secret information that Reagan had planned.
Michael Raegan tweeted out: “After my father was out of office he shared with me that Sen Joe Biden confronted him and told him if he disagreed with my father on a Covert action he had planned he would leak it to the media to stop it.”

Biden also strongly criticized the funding of the “Star Wars”, stating that “The president’s continued adherence to [SDI/Star Wars] constitutes one of the most reckless and irresponsible acts in the history of modern statecraft.”
In 1987, Biden was the chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Reagan nominated Robert Bork, a conservative jurist, to the Supreme Court. Biden’s handling of Bork’s nomination was considered to be particularly partisan and harsh.
This lead to The Washington Post even writing that Biden’s “swinging reflexively to the other side of the question at the first hint of pressure, claiming the leadership of the opposition, doesn’t do a whole lot for the senator’s claim to be fit for higher office.” The Post added that Biden had “already cast himself in the role of the prosecutor instead of a juror …”
