Fallout From Discovery Of Classified Docs At Biden Home Beginning… GOP Rep Demands Visitor Logs

(Congress Report) – Not long after the news broke that another set of classified documents were discovered at the private home of President Joe Biden located in Wilmington, Delaware — which goes along with the first batch that were found in his private office at the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington — Rep. Lance Gooden, a Texas Republican, sent out a letter to the president and the Secret Service demanding that they release visitor logs from Biden’s home.

“Given the vast amount of time President Biden spends at his Delaware property and the significant allegations of unethical behavior and influence peddling against members of his immediate family, the American people deserve to know who is influencing this Administration,” Gooden wrote, according to the Daily Wire. “The Biden Administration has continuously promised to bring transparency and truth back to the government, yet your failure to disclose this information sends the opposite message. I urge you to make good on this promise and release these visitor logs to the public.”

Gooden then noted that the White House Visitor Log Policy allows the American people to see “who is lobbying your Administration,” going on to add, “Roughly two hundred days of your presidency have been spent at your home in Wilmington, Delaware. The public deserves assurance that your Administration is listening to the concerns of the American people and not acting in the best interest of lobbyists, friends, or donors.”

“The discovery of classified documents at your private residence violates your commitment to ‘restore integrity, transparency, and trust in government,’” Gooden then proclaimed. “Unfortunately, your Administration has previously made it apparent that no records of visitors to your Delaware residence exist. Last October, the Secret Service claimed that ‘the agency conducted an additional search of relevant program offices for potentially responsive records’ but found nothing.”

“The discovery of classified documents proves this failure to identify visitors to your Delaware residence is another attempt to mislead the American people and potentially conceal meetings with special interest groups or foreign nationals,” he asserted.

“Your decision to keep classified documents at your Delaware residence may also be regarded as a national security risk,” Gooden stated in the letter. “Storing classified documents in your garage and the Secret Service’s inability to confirm the existence of visitor logs is a potential national security breach of any information within these discovered documents.”

“I urge you to uphold your commitment to a transparent visitor log policy to address your decision to regularly provide exclusive access to certain members of the public outside of the White House where you keep classified documents. I request the courtesy of any answer to these questions no later than January 23, 2023,” Gooden’s letter finished.

What a horrendous double standard by Biden. He stood there, just months ago, and called it “irresponsible” for former President Donald Trump to have classified documents locked away in his private home. Yet he had some of his own from his time as vice president locked up in his garage, along with his Corvette, as he pointed out several times.

The thing is, if he’s going to be ticked off at Trump for having these documents locked up in his home, shouldn’t he be embarrassed by this latest find? You’d think so, but it doesn’t seem that’s the case. In fact, he’s trying to justify his actions like it is no big deal.

It’s a crime if Trump does it, perfectly acceptable if he does it. Unreal.

  1. Just one comment about the Biden documents that seem to be forgotten by many people. As Vice-President of the United States, which Biden was during the time frame of these documents, he does NOT have a legal right to remove ANY TOP SECRET documents. This is ONLY reserved for the President of the United States and ONLY if he de-classifies them. Biden has violated the law just by taking AND having them
