On Monday, former President Donald Trump asked when the FBI was going to raid the homes of Joe Biden, including the White House, in response to the revelation that Biden kept classified documents from his time as Vice President in his think tank's office.
Trump said on Truth Social, "When is the FBI going to raid the many homes of Joe Biden, perhaps even the White House? These documents were definitely not declassified."
On August 8, the FBI raided Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago to investigate whether Trump mishandled or otherwise maintained classified documents. More than 30 federal agents stormed the property and confiscated over 20 boxes of material from the former president's residence. Later, reports emerged that the raid happened on the Department of Justice's belief that Trump and his team had not returned all documents that are deemed government property under the Presidential Records Act.
On Monday, reports emerged that US Attorney General Merrick Garland assigned a Chicago attorney to review classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, a think tank located in Washington, DC. Roughly 10 documents were found that were classified and carried over to the location when Biden was Vice President.
The classified materials included some top-secret files with the SCI or 'sensitive compartmented information' designation.
Trump said on Truth Social, "Wow! The Biden Think Tank is funded by CHINA!!! Also, a V.P. cannot Declassify documents, which are covered by the Federal Records Act, which is Criminal and MUCH TOUGHER than the Presidential Records Act, which is NOT Criminal. A President, me, can Declassify. ￼How much more information has China been given?"
Revelations from Hunter Biden's laptop confirmed Hunter earned more than $11 million from Chinese and Ukrainian business deals over 5 years during a time when Joe Biden was Vice President.
On Twitter, Donald Trump Jr wrote, "We were told for months that this was treasonous… grounds for impeachment... & meriting the death penalty, yet I have a feeling nothing will happen!? U.S. attorney reviewing classified documents from Joe Biden's vice presidency found at Biden think tank."
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene told Tucker Carlson Monday Night, "Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice, they have to be held accountable if they don't treat Joe Biden exactly the same way they're treating President Trump."
The Daily Mail reports that in a statement the White House responded and said, "The White House is cooperating with the National Archives and the Department of Justice regarding the discovery of what appear to be Obama-Biden admin records, including a small number of documents with classified markings."
