George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turly has some bad news for President Joe Biden, saying that he might have inadvertently set a trap for himself when he made the claim that he did not know about the classified documents that have now been found in two different locations, including the garage of his personal home in Wilmington, Delaware.
Wouldn’t it be hilarious if this is what it took to finally get the hammer dropped on Biden? We’ve had tons of evidence on Hunter Biden’s laptop that pretty much proves both he and his father were involved in an influence peddling scheme while he was vice president, but getting that information looked at by someone who can actually do something about the situation seems nigh to impossible.
But this, well, this little situation has been unfolding right in the public eye. No way to get around it. We know for a fact these documents, which Biden as vice president, had no right to take out of the White House, have been found in places they are not legally allowed to be. There’s no way to ignore that reality. Now let’s hope it results in Biden finally being held accountable for his actions.
According to The Daily Wire, “Classified documents — which date back to Biden’s tenure as vice president — have so far been uncovered in Biden’s office at the Penn Biden Center (a think tank in Washington, D.C.), in his Wilmington home, and in his garage. And according to Turley, the fact that the documents were discovered in multiple locations makes Biden’s claim — that he only left the White House with them because they were “inadvertently misplaced” — far less plausible.”
“The ‘inadvertent’ defense has its dangers. If Biden worked off any of these documents for his book (which dealt with some of the underlying subjects), the inadvertent defense is not only shattered but could be viewed as an effort to deceive the public,” Turley posted on Twitter, sharing the link for an op-ed he wrote on the subject, which was then published by Fox News.
…In the meantime, we may soon, however, see an extraordinary historical development where both leading candidates for the presidency will be campaigning with their own assigned special counsels. https://t.co/eqIU9Pn3DL

Turley then pointed out the historic situation that could potentially be barreling toward us, which is a 2024 presidential race where one of the candidates from both major political parties was still in the middle of being investigated by an assigned special counsel. I can’t speak for everyone, but I think I’m over living in “unprecedented” times.
“In the article Turley shared, he pointed out the fact that despite the similarities of their alleged infractions, many were clearly willing to give Biden the benefit of the doubt — or give him a pass entirely — for the same alleged crime that had them ready to throw the book at former President Donald Trump,” the Daily Wire reported.
“One is criminal (Trump). And one is not criminal (Biden). Say it in plain English,” Lawrence Tribe went on to say of the two.
However, Turley explained just how problematic the whole “inadvertently misplaced” excuse could be, especially since the documents have been found in different locations.
“It seems that these documents were likely moved more than once. Biden left office as vice president in 2017. He presumably took these documents at that time. However, they ended up in different places, including one document found separately from the ‘garage files’ in the residence,” Turley continued.
“In addition, the Penn Biden Center did not open its doors until February of 2018 — more than a year after Biden vacated the White House — meaning that the documents were in one location after Biden left the White House and had to be moved at least once before they were discovered in his office there,” the Daily Wire report said.
“At some point, some documents were sent to the office and some to the residence and garage. What explained this division if it was not based on what the then vice president was working on?” Turley concluded. “The ‘inadvertent’ defense hardly fits neatly with these facts. Moreover, if Biden worked off any of these documents for his book (which dealt with some of the underlying subjects like Ukraine), the inadvertent defense is not only shattered but could be cited later as an effort to deceive the public.”
