Double Standards: Trump and Biden
This double standard is sad but not unexpected. Let’s pray for universal truth and justice.
From Washington Examiner. The National Archives has stayed largely quiet when it comes to Biden’s classified document saga — a stark contrast to how it handled Trump’s scandal. It set up an entire section on its website, “Press Statements in Response to Media Queries About Presidential Records,” in early 2022 dedicated to its numerous press releases on the Trump Mar-a-Lago documents saga. However, in the weeks after Biden’s scandal burst into public view (and months after the National Archives first learned about it), the agency has yet to issue a single press release on it.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the new chairman of the House Oversight Committee, conducted a transcribed interview with National Archives general counsel Gary Stern on Tuesday, and he revealed Stern says he had been blocked from putting out public press releases on the Biden classified documents saga, with Comer suggesting only the Justice Department or the White House could have blocked the National Archives.
“Right before the National Archives came in, they handed us a letter from the Department of Justice informing them and us that the general counsel for the National Archives wasn’t allowed to say anything about the Biden documents,” Comer said on Fox News. “But we went ahead and we had about a three-plus hour transcribed interview with the general counsel, and what we learned was that there is a double standard here with how Donald Trump was treated versus Joe Biden.”
Comer said “an example” of the bias was the numerous Mar-a-Lago press releases compared to zero Biden classified documents press releases on the National Archives website.
“So we asked the general counsel — why were there no press releases sent on Joe Biden once it was determined that he had classified documents in his possession?” Comer told host Sean Hannity. “And the general counsel said that he did do press releases, but he was ordered and told they couldn’t be published. So we did ask who gave him the orders, and he said, ‘I can’t tell you that.’ But there are only two people who could have given him those orders, and that is either the Department of Justice with Merrick Garland or the White House with Joe Biden.” …
