Joe Biden is in a pickle that will probably last right through his reelection bid in 2024. He got caught with secret and top secret documents illegally stored. First they were found at an office he kept in Washington, DC after he left the Obama White House. Then they found even more documents stored in his garage, and now they’ve found even more found in his house…by the way, the same house Hunter Biden was staying at during this time. And that, as I’ve said before, means a few things. Biden is apparently no better than Donald Trump when it comes to keeping classified, secret and top secret documents at his house. But it also means you probably aren’t going to be seeing Trump indicted for anything like that any time soon. Attorney General, Merrick Garland realizes that if he goes after Trump over the Mar-a-Lago raid, he needs to do the same to Biden, or he WILL be impeached!
So, let’s fast forward to the White House mouthpiece, Karine Jean-Pierre.
Poor KJP can’t seem to get her story straight. After the first document discover in Joe’s DC office were discovered, KJP came out to say that they were fully cooperating with the DOJ on this and that the matter was over. All of the documents had been recovered and turned over.
Then they found more docs in Biden’s garage. And then subsequent docs were found in Biden’s home. And what did Jean-Pierre have to say about it? She never knew about it until the press corp uncovered it and she learned about it at the same time America did. No one in the Biden White House thought to clue her in on it apparently.
Then she was asked if someone higher up in the White House told her not to be forthcoming when it came to the discovery of the additional documents. Her answer was, “I have been forthcoming.” Uh-huh. And I ran a close second to Donald Trump in the Republican primary in 2020.
KJP refuses to say whether the search for these classified documents at Joe’s place has actually been concluded, or if there are going to be more documents found.
And this is problematic on several fronts.
First and foremost, you have the person that is telling the press corp that she isn’t in the loop when it comes to the information that is being ladled out at the White House. She doesn’t know. Or if she knows, she isn’t saying. That usually doesn’t bode well when the press is looking for answers. And it usually doesn’t bode well for the administration trying to hide the story.
It’s problematic because there is always a loss of credibility for the administration when something like this can’t be answered directly and openly. The press is feeling like you’re hiding something. That makes them dig even deeper, ala Woodward & Bernstein, to uncover what they most assuredly feel at this point is a scandal brewing. They see themselves being thrust a Pulitzer Prize if they are able to uncover it, and with it the fame and fortune for the rest of their lives.
And it’s problematic for another, more conspiratorial reason. Republicans are already asking the question, “What’s in those documents?” Are there items in there that the House Intelligence Committee would like to see because they implicate Joe and Hunter in their play for pay schemes they’ve allegedly foisted on Ukraine and China? Is there a smoking gun there? Biden has already shown that he can’t be trusted to tell the truth when it comes to stuff like this. He’s been caught in how many lies in his career? Hundreds? Thousands? Why in the world would anyone believe what he has to say about this? Remember, he told everyone countless times that “I never met with any of Hunter’s business associates and I never talked to him about his business dealings.” That turned into a crock that if you stepped in it, you’d need a new pair of shoes.
Why not just admit what you did wrong and get the story out there. I’ll say this about Bill Clinton. At least he was right about one thing. When YOU release the story, instead of letting the press find out about it, YOU get to control the story. But as Clinton also found out, you have to release the WHOLE story. You can’t just pick and choose what needs to be released because someone somewhere is going to find the truth. And if there is more to this story, and the Republican conspiracy folks happen to be right, impeachment may not only NOT be out of the question, it may be necessary.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Sorry. I can’t follow her. It’s the hair. I don’t care about her sexual orientation or race or gender at all. And she’s a rather condescending little woman, isn’t she?
