Let the Cries of "Whataboutism" On the Batshit-Crazy Right Commence, Because They're Going to, Anyway.

The Justice Department is reviewing a batch of potentially classified documents found in the Washington office space of President Joe Biden’s former institute, the White House said Monday.

Special counsel to the president Richard Sauber said “a small number of documents with classified markings” were discovered as Biden’s personal attorneys were clearing out the offices of the Penn Biden Center, where the president kept an office after he left the vice presidency in 2017 until shortly before he launched his 2020 presidential campaign in 2019. The documents were found on Nov. 2, 2022, in a “locked closet” in the office, Sauber said.

Of course, what is not present, in this case, are claims that "them's mine", or refusals to let FBI agents look for themselves, or sworn lies brom attorneys that no such documents exist, but that won't stop the cries about "whataboutism" from the Trumpanzees.

Hey, be consistent.

If one is bad, then so is the other.
Downplay it all you want. But if you aren't treating this the same way as the Mar A Lago documents, then you have double standards. (not that there was any doubt)

B, if you bothered to pay attentions to the facts, you'd see that the two matters are not the same. Nobody had to go looking for the Biden documents; their own people found them and reported them to the National archives. On the other hand, the National Archives repeatedly tried to get the classified documents back from Your Orange Demigod and were stiff-armed repeatedly. Hence the FBI search.

But you just gloss over that, don't you.

In both cases an investigation is underway, by independent parties. Other than that, the similarities are pretty sparse.

So let's see: Biden's attorney discovered some classified markings on a couple of documents and immediately informed NARA about it so they could be taken care of properly?
That is exactly how it should have been handled, a great example for anyone else who might find themselves in possession of such materials.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they were from the Asset's stash of stolen secrets, planted there by one of trump's traitors. Isn't why it stole them in the first place?

Doug, you left out one part. Biden's attorney didn't make this information public until after the mid-term elections or even the GA Senate run-off. Considering the razor thin margins of some of these elections, a revelation like this could have swung a few to the Republicans.

In any case, both incidents are being investigated. Not sure how "double standards" applies.

Pete: That's just the news of it, the actual documents were taken care of immediately. Fergus still has some documents he isn't supposed to have. That's the double standard.
