Nat’l Files, Biden Lawyers Secretly Coordinated in Classified Documents

The National Archives on Friday released 74 pages of emails showing an Archive attorney coordinating with President Joe Biden’s attorneys to secretly retrieve classified materials from the Penn Biden Center ahead of the 2022 midterm election.

According to House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY), the Archives was previously instructed by the White House or the Department of Justice (DOJ) to withhold the initial revelations of the confidential Biden documents scandal from the American people.

Furthermore, official media have reported at least three times that Biden and the DOJ agreed to hide the scandal from public view, likely with no plans to publicize it until the scandal was leaked to CBS News on January 9, weeks after the initial treasure to be found. by Biden’s personal lawyers on Nov.

The emails released Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Bloomberg show the Archives secretly coordinating and accomodating Biden’s personal lawyers to retrieve classified records. The emails also show that questions were raised about whether classified materials were also stored in Boston and Philadelphia.

The motive or initial cause of the search of the Penn Biden Center by Biden attorneys remains unknown.

The emails indicate that Biden’s personal attorneys and Archive attorney Gary Stern had a “talk” as early as Nov. 4 about the secret scandal.

On Nov. 7, the day before the midterm elections, Stern emailed Biden’s personal attorneys Bob Bauer and Pat Moore to make an appointment to secretly collect materials in a “U.S. government van.” of the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC.

“Bob/Pat, following our conversation on Friday, we would like to arrange for our team to return to the DC PennBiden Center space to assess the remaining boxes and take custody of any that we deem appropriate for further review,” Stern wrote. Bauer and Moore.

A second email from Nov. 7 shows more Archive accommodations. Stern asked Biden’s attorneys if Archives staff could return to the Penn Biden Center “to evaluate the remaining boxes and take custody of those we deem appropriate for further analysis.”

Bauer said Archives could come back and pick up more documents the next day, and noted that he “was also checking to determine if there is any similar material in the Pennsylvania Penn-Biden space, and we will be reporting to you today.”

Stern also told Moore to make sure the boxes of materials were kept in a safe place. “Please ensure that the boxes in your Boston office remain secure in a locked space and are not accessed by anyone,” he said of the Boston location.

The emails arrived after the Archives failed to provide Comer with information about the document scandal before the Jan. 24 deadline. Comer called the missed deadline “very disappointing”.

Comer also said that the Archives were previously instructed by the White House or the DOJ to hide the initial revelations of the Biden classified document scandal from the American people.

“There are only two people who could have given those orders, and that’s the Justice Department with (Attorney General) Merrick Garland or the White House with Joe Biden,” Comer told Fox News.

“I don’t think we would have known about these documents if it weren’t for investigative reporting, so we want to know why the government wasn’t transparent sooner,” Comer said.
