Let us start with the facts surrounding the “discovery” of classified U.S. Government documents, including Top Secret and Sensitive Compartmented Information (aka SCI):
- The documents were “discovered” in early November 2022 by lawyers ostensibly working for Joe Biden.
- The documents were discovered at locations that Hunter Biden could enter or leave at will.
- Hunter Biden currently is the target of an investigation by the Delaware U.S. attorney and faces potential charges for information contained on his laptop.
- There is no requirement for Secret Service to keep a list of visitors for Hunter Biden.
I initially speculated that the leak about these documents could be part of a plot to get rid of Joe Biden in anticipation of the debacle in Ukraine and to clear the decks for a new Democrat candidate for 2024. But one thing bothered me — why didn’t Joe Biden’s lawyers destroy the documents?
If the lawyers really were working for Joe Biden, we still do not have a good answer for why they were searching through Joe’s office and home for documents? What precipitated this?
The most likely explanation is that Hunter Biden had full knowledge of these documents because his Dad removed them during his last days as Vice President. Those documents helped Hunter identify clients and secure deals in Ukraine, China and other locations. And Joe Biden directly benefited from those deals (e.g., 10% for the Big Guy).
Joe can claim that he made a mistake in taking the documents and not securing them. He can also claim that he had no knowledge that his son was sneaking around reading this classified material. Meanwhile, Hunter is trying to buy some good will with the prosecutor by disclosing the existence of these documents. I fully expect Joe and Hunter to deny responsibility for this security breach. Could it be that Joe and Hunter might implicate Chief of Staff Ron Klain, or a lower level staffer, as the scapegoat for taking these documents?
The Bidens are a slippery sort. Remember the comment of James Biden, Joe’s brother about plausible deniability: (Tony) Bobulinski said he asked Jim Biden directly, “How are you guys getting away with this? Like, aren’t you concerned?” Plausible deniability
There are people doing CYAs on crimes by the Administration. I hope there will be some rats.
We are about to hear “I can’t recall” a lot.
just saying says
Considering the amount of crack & dementia involved, at least half of those “I can’t recall” would probably be true.
That lawyerese for lying. And then as some attorneys told me, “There are many ways of telling the truth.”
Might be legal, but it doesn’t fool everyone.
the American people need to know what is in these documents, get any one to safety that’s needs to be its all ben possibly compromised anyway,
Catch 22 says
Don’t hold your breath. They’ll likely never see the light of day as that’d require the POTUS (or maybe Congress) to declassify them.
just saying says
The American people need to know what is in these documents, so that they can instantly forget about it, and continue like nothing happened.
Hunter and Joe could have cooked up a plan to limit legal liability to both of them, but Hunter could also be just throwing the old man under the bus. This is, after all, a guy who left his wife to bang his dead brother’s widow. And worse. So he’s not hindered much by pangs of conscience. Lately he’d been selling his paintings for $500k – in other words!being paid to keep quiet and lay low. If his dad is pushed out of office over this document stuff, will Hunter still be able to continue his grift?
Cato the Uncensored says
Want to bet that they’ll eventually find that the documents were declassified but that the markings had not been correctly made to note the fact?
They’d do it now, if it wouldn’t undermine their case against Mr. Trump.
There can be a world of difference between classified materials and materials marked as classified.
Obama declassified them? Lol that’s funny.
Mondo Cane says
Here’s an interesting question someone posed at MOA:
Question: Why did Hunter record paying Dad $50,000 monthly rent when the houses in the area range at $3,500 -$6,000 max? The Bidens are well invested in UKR and there is much there that should not see the light of day.
If so, then why indeed? Reminds me of Hillary’s porkbelly paybacks through pool trading.
How many ways are there to launder kickbacks? Let me count the ways.
PS: Lest we not forget, Kolomoisky was a shadow principal in Burisma and man, did he know how to make off with billions in IMF loot.
No honor among thieves.
It’s certainly strange but I’m not holding my breath that these people will face any sort of justice.

Predicated on a prosecutor who would actually bring charge against anyone in the buyden orbit

Glenn Greenwald, on the Megyn Kelly show, told how he saw a document marked classified that explained to CIA staff how to get a special lunch menu.
Biden had Top Secret documents as well though. In his locked garage next to his Corvette. Anyone want to go for a spin around Wilmington with Joe in his Corvette ?
The rental receipt that Hunter allegedly paid for rent was the exact amount to the cent for a damage deposit for a commercial office space rented for a joint Biden / China Energy venture. I think there is a dark Aura hanging over the Biden’s…alot of bad things happening behind closed doors and Hunter wants it all to come out…..he is acting in such a reckless self destructive manner it’s beyond chemical induced incompetence
Jim Christian says
Kamala Harris is a great insurance, policy, no? She’s got no skin in the game, as President, she’ll be willing to go to war in Ukraine.

A black and a woman , who would challenge her ? The VP. , next in line.
Who showers with a pre-pubescent daughter?
What to do with the 3-strikes you’re out felon who is the son, but a life term?
The Bidens are the scum of the earth.
Americans elected Joe for being such a regular guy, like themselves.
They elected George Bush for being so authentic, one of us (he took speech lessons 2 years to sound like a Texan). They started this trend of electing actors (Trudeau) and comedians (Zelensky) to be heads of state [there are other examples that slipped my mind] when they elected Ronald Reagan and decided to invade Grenada and Panama [America is Back!] and stick their heads in the sand and became the biggest debtor after being the biggest creditor nation.
Just saying, the rot is an established trend.
Vous oubliez Macron qui a épousé son professeur de théatre…
Quen avec son prof pour pas douiller les cours , faut vraiment être pingre… enfin au vu des résultats , il a bien fait de pas payer :).
There is video footage of Hunter in bed with his underage niece….he was having an affair with his brother’s wife….there is footage of Hunter in bed with Obama’s two daughters…amongst other things on the laptop that was conveniently left out in public for all intents and purposes….sick F*¢£s

It is not far fetched to believe that every high post in any government whether Federal or State is occupied by a compromised individual.
I believe Kamala will be canceled first. Once, a new VP (or future President) is selected, then Joe will be given the Alzheimer send off.
I suspect it’s all a way to cover everything up. As long as the DOJ is investigating, they conveniently can’t appear to answer Congressional questions due to the “ongoing investigation.” The whole process actually gives Biden cover. They’ll drag it out past the next election and it’ll go away. To all appearances it’s a way to protect Biden, not run him off.
