Who’s Been Visiting Joe Biden?

The administration’s secrecy about the visitor logs to Biden’s two homes in Delaware makes him look like he’s hiding something.

So much for Joe Biden’s commitment to “restore integrity, transparency, and trust in government.”

That language, taken from the White House press release of May 7, 2021, clearly hasn’t aged well. Since that time, when the administration announced its self-congratulatory commitment to posting White House visitor logs, Team Biden has stonewalled the media — and the American people — about who has been meeting with the president during his many trips to and from his two Delaware homes.

What might the “Big Guy” be hiding? Visits from Hunter and his, er, business partners? Maybe mysterious art aficionados looking to buy influence by shelling out $500,000 for one of Hunter’s masterpieces? Green energy lobbyists looking to help set the administration’s legislative agenda? Big Pharma folks trying to pitch a new COVID vaccination for toddlers? Neurological experts there to check on and treat the president’s clearly degenerating cognitive condition? We don’t know. And we aren’t likely to find out, even though Joe Biden spends a ton of time back home. Indeed, Biden spent about one-fourth of his first year in office in Delaware.

“I can confirm we are not going to be providing information about the comings and goings of the president’s grandchildren or people visiting him in Delaware,” said former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki at her daily press briefing back on August 10, 2021. So there’s nothing to see here. Just grandkids and stuff.

Sensing a cover-up, the journalists at the New York Post have kept on this story. And they’ve had the door slammed on them at every turn. In April of this year, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the U.S. Secret Service told the Post that it has “no records” of visitors to either of Biden’s Delaware residences — he has a mansion just outside of Wilmington and a vacation home in Rehoboth Beach — and therefore can’t share any such information.

Kentucky Congressman James Comer says the agency’s claims of no records existing are “a bunch of malarkey,” adding, “Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with [Biden’s son] Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president.”

Last week, New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, the third-ranking House Republican, called for the release of the records the Secret Service says don’t exist. “We already know Hunter Biden and his illegal ties and relationships with outside entities have threatened U.S. national security, and House Republicans are leading the effort for accountability,” Stefanik argued. “Now, we must know why this administration continues to obstruct the truth on whether anyone else is influencing this administration.”

“Every American deserves transparency on who is meeting with this president — especially as he has continued to hide from them in his basement in Delaware,” she continued. “House Republicans are committed to a government that is accountable, and we will conduct critical oversight into the entire Biden Crime Family.”

Ah, the Biden Crime Family. The New York Post editorial board apparently agrees with Stefanik and her House colleagues’ pursuit of those records. In an op-ed titled “Team Biden’s bizarre dodges on Delaware visitor logs make the president look guilty as hell,” the board points to what we already know: “We know that Joe took meetings with Hunter Biden’s shady business associates as vice president. And the heat’s been on Hunter (and by extension Joe, aka the "big guy”) for years, with the promise of more to come if the GOP is victorious in the midterms.“

"He is presumably doing work, so the public has an interest in knowing who is visiting him there,” said Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton. “The presidency doesn’t stop when he’s visiting Delaware.”

Fitton is right, and it’s long past time for Team Biden to live up to its promise of transparency. “Otherwise,” as the Post notes, “with every further evasion, he looks less and less like the leader of the free world — and more and more like a ward-heeling, hands-in-the-till small-timer trying anything and everything to cover his tracks.”
