Sternly Worded Memo in Biden Docs Probe
By refusing to charge Joe Biden for years of mishandling classified docs, Robert Hur is demonstrating fealty to the corrupt attorney general who appointed him.
The Wall Street Journal’s headline would be laugh-out-loud funny were it not so infuriating: “Biden Expected to Face Harsh Criticism in Classified-Document Probe.”
Surely that’s “harsh criticism and multiple criminal charges,” right?
Wrong. As the Journal reports, “The prosecutor investigating why classified documents ended up at President Biden’s home and former office is preparing a report that is expected to be sharply critical of how he and his longtime aides handled the material, but the probe isn’t likely to result in a criminal case, according to people familiar with the matter.”
Harsh criticism, eh? That’ll teach him.
This reminds us of the sternly worded memo that Hillary Clinton got from disgraced former FBI Director James Comey just prior to the 2016 election. You remember — the one in which Comey called her “extremely careless” instead of “grossly negligent” so as to avoid putting Clinton in legal jeopardy after she’d set up an unsecured private email server to avoid congressional oversight of her State Department communications, after she’d deleted and acid-washed some 33,000 emails while they were under congressional subpoena, and after her team had smashed their cellphones with hammers.
We haven’t heard much from Biden’s special prosecutor, Robert Hur, since his appointment by corrupt Attorney General and Biden buddy Merrick Garland on January 12. By contrast, Donald Trump’s special prosecutor, Jack Smith — the hatchet man whose conviction of former Virginia Republican Governor Bob McDonnell was unanimously overturned by the Supreme Court — has become a media darling and a champion of the Trump-hating Left.
As the Journal notes, “Hur has interviewed roughly 100 of Biden’s aides, colleagues and family members, including his son, Hunter, culminating in a two-day interview with the president last month.”
So Hur interviewed both Joe and Hunter, the two principal members of the Biden Crime Family, and he didn’t find anything even the least bit suspicious about their conduct over the years? We suspect this is the first time a special prosecutor didn’t pursue a tangential lead and didn’t go on an investigative fishing expedition. What a coincidence.
When the former and perhaps future president, Donald Trump, learned that Biden was unlikely to face charges, he took to Truth Social, switch to Caps Lock, and let loose: “WOW! FAKE NEWS CNN, THROUGH A LEAK FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE, HAS JUST REPORTED THAT NO CHARGES WILL BE FILED IN THE (MUCH BIGGER THAN MINE!!!) CROOKED JOE BIDEN DOCUMENTS CASE. WE ARE LIVING IN A VERY CORRUPT COUNTRY!”
To be clear, the classified-documents investigations into Trump and Biden are different. Many legal analysts think that of the 91 felony charges heaped upon Trump — most of them by sleazy and unscrupulous hyper-partisans like Jack Smith, Letitia James, Alvin Bragg, and Fani Willis — the documents charges are the most perilous legal threat he faces. But that doesn’t mean Biden’s decades-long mishandling of classified documents at multiple locations isn’t worthy of criminal charges. After all, Trump, as president, had the right to declassify any documents he wanted to, whereas Biden, as a U.S. senator for 36 years and as Barack Obama’s vice president for eight years after that, had no such right. And whereas Biden and his lawyers were afforded every legal courtesy to clean up his documents mess, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was raided without warning on the morning of August 8, 2022, while Trump was 1,200 miles away in Manhattan.
In addition, Trump kept his documents secured at Mar-a-Lago, under Secret Service protection, while Biden kept his classified docs all over the place and within arm’s reach of his crack-addict son. And speaking of Hunter, there’s evidence that he was using this classified info in some of those overseas business dealings that his dad had never spoken to him about. On top of that, as Matt Margolis reminds us at PJ Media, “Soon after the scandal broke in January, we learned that the documents had been originally discovered before the midterm elections, indicating a cover-up.”
For those of you keeping score at home, that’s 91 felony counts for Donald Trump, and zero for Joe Biden. And one tier of justice for those of us on the Right, and another one for those on the Left.
