It appears that President Biden is in some hot water of his own making. This time, it’s over the discovery of classified documents at the offices of the Penn Biden Center. According to a source familiar with the matter, US Attorney John Lausch, who was appointed by Trump back in 2017, has been tapped to investigate the incident.
“The documents were not the subject of any previous request or inquiry by the Archives,” Richard Sauber, special counsel to the White House, said in a Monday statement. “Since that discovery, the President’s personal attorneys have cooperated with he Archives and the Department of Justice in process to ensure that any Obama-Biden Administration records are appropriately in the possession of the Archives.”
The incident is a bit reminiscent of the controversy last year when it was revealed that Trump was keeping a trove of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence. This led to an FBI raid on the premises in order to recover some 300 such documents.
Trump himself was quick to draw comparisons between the two incidents on social media, and many Republicans have called for further information regarding the Biden documents. It’s unclear at this point what the exact nature of the documents is, or what repercussions the incident may have.
The media is already circling the wagons and some of the libs are really concerned about it. Far left journalist Aaron Rupar was really concerned that CNN was giving the store more time than Fox News was.

Biden’s words are also coming back to haunt him.
