Not too long ago, the liberal media was breathless over what the federal government did to Donald Trump. Despite the fact that Trump worked with the National Archives, the federal agency called on the FBI to raid the former president’s home. The National Archives stirred up so much trouble, that the FBI sent 30 armed agents to ransack a president’s house–something we’ve never seen.
But, just a few months later, we learned that Joe Biden was guilty of the very same thing. It was worse even, because he had been holding onto these classified docs for much longer. Also, he wasn’t president at the time he took them; he did not have the power to declassify anything. Yet, despite Biden’s shocking mishandling of documents, the National Archives is treating him with kid gloves.
The National Archives (NARA) coordinated with President Biden’s attorneys for the discreet collection of classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., displaying a collaborative spirit in marked contrast to its adversarial stance toward Donald Trump and his legal team in the former president’s federal records case, newly disclosed emails reveal…
Former President Donald Trump on Saturday slammed the National Archives on Truth Social as “Radical” and “Woke” for picking up Biden’s documents without the public’s knowledge. He said the federal agency “colluded with the Department of Injustice, FBI, & Hopeless Joe Biden & his lawyers to try and hide the FACT that Joe has, & had, Classified Documents at his China funded ‘Think Tank,’ & other locations.” [Source: Just the News]
Isn’t this interesting? The National Archives should be a largely unbiased agency, right? After all, they are gloried paper-pushers, collecting documents from former presidential administrations. Yet there is a clear and obvious partisan bias at this agency.
Trump and his team had been in communication with the NARA for months. Both the National Archives and the FBI knew Trump was holding onto documents at his office. The FBI even saw the storage room and recommended adding a second lock. Despite all this, the National Archive raised a crap storm against Trump, slandered him to the FBI, and got them to raid his home like he was El Chapo.
Meanwhile, Biden is guilty of the exact same thing… and no raids. No FBI armed with rifles, pouring over his home. No agents forcing his lawyers to stay outside as they comb through his and his wife’s belongings. In fact, the National Archive has applauded Biden’s “cooperative.” There is a “collaborative spirit” between the agency and Biden’s lawyers.
We know what this really means. If you are a Democrat, you get better treatment. This agency should have handled both these cases the exact same way. It should have respectfully worked with both presidents to ensure the safe handover of these documents.
But because Trump is a Republican, this leftist organization treated him like a criminal. And because Biden is a Democrat, it’s all wine and roses at his home and office.
