Silvio Canto writes for the American Thinker about the curious timing of news about President Biden’s unauthorized possession of classified documents.
Who knew that we’d be talking about President Biden’s Corvette and his troves of secret documents five months after the FBI visited President Trump’s home? Life does have a way of throwing you a curve ball from time to time. Did someone say what goes around comes around? …
… The Biden story is now in the hands of a special counsel. Why? Because the Biden administration overreacted last summer and sent the FBI to pick up documents. The “hysterically obsessed with Trump Democrats” now have a document crisis that has nothing to do with the Orange Man.
What happens now? It raises a lot of questions, from the incompetence of the office managing these documents to theories about the motivation. This is from Josh Hammer:
“But perhaps the most pressing question is: Why? Why was there a leak to CBS News just now, over two months after Biden attorneys discovered the first tranche of classified documents deep in the bowels of a Penn Biden Center office? Why has there been such a slow, drip-drip, dramatic leaking and reporting of various classified document tranches throughout this whole week?”
“It is thoroughly unsurprising that the federal law enforcement apparatus and the corporate media buried the news of Biden’s malfeasance on the precipice of the midterm elections. The ‘Democrat-Media Complex,’ as the late Andrew Breitbart called it, demands nothing less than such complicity.”
“But the timing of the leak from various federal law enforcement actors now, just as Biden is beginning his second term, [sic] suggests there is real internal turmoil over at the Democratic National Committee.” …
… Out to get Joe? The timing is weird. Or maybe Kamala wants the Corvette? I don’t know, but not one Democrat last August imagined that it ‘d be President Biden with a document crisis down the road.
