Joe Biden walked into an impeachment trap with this bonehead move

Feb 22, 2024

Joe Biden’s up to his neck in scandal.

In trying to dig out his latest mess, Biden created a new fiasco for Congress to investigate.

And Joe Biden walked into an impeachment trap with this bonehead move.

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig’s column in New York Magazine about the Hur Report ignited the latest Biden firestorm.

Honig wrote that Hur’s conclusions about Biden stealing classified documents as Senator and Vice President were damning.

“He arguably broke the law, and he definitely misled the American public,” Honig stated.

Honig explained that the Hur Report exposed Joe Biden as lying to the American people when he repeatedly claimed he was surprised his lawyers discovered stolen classified documents at multiple Biden properties.

The proof, Honig wrote, came in one episode that Hur documented, where Biden told the ghostwriter of the memoir that he found the “classified stuff downstairs,” which meant Biden knew he kept classified documents in his house, a key element to making this crime a felony.

“Here’s the single most important piece of evidence in Hur’s report: In a recording made by the ghostwriter in February 2017 — a month after Biden left the vice-presidency — Biden says he had “just found all the classified stuff downstairs.” That, folks, is the needle-scratch moment. Up until last week, the party line has essentially been, “Hey, classified documents are strewn all around the White House, a bunch of boxes got moved around, transition is chaotic, documents end up in various places; big mistake, whoops, sorry.” Now we know that’s untrue,” Honig added.

Honig’s column led to a declaration of war by the administration.

White House Counsel spokesman Ian Sams wrote that the column contained “an embarrassingly false assessment by Elie Honig, amplified by [NBC reporter] Ken Dilanian, both of whom are smart and can read but apparently haven’t.”

Honig was correct, as Hur’s report stated that Biden “willfully retained classified documents” and that investigators uncovered evidence to prove this fact.

Biden escaped prosecution a) because he is a sitting President and b) Hur deemed Biden too cognitively damaged to stand trial.

Sams also included a letter to the White House Correspondents Association with detailed instructions on how reporters were to cover the Hur Report.

“We all make mistakes, but in the interest of presenting factual information to the public, I am compelled to help illustrate the facts in this matter and urge caution in the future with reporting that either is inattentive to detail or misconstrues the facts and evidence,” the letter read.

George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley was appalled.

Turley wrote on social media that Biden enlisting White Staff to participate in a “disinformation campaign” constituted an impeachable offense, and every time Sams popped off at the press, he just added to Joe Biden’s troubles.

“The use of White House staff to carry out an alleged disinformation campaign can raise alleged violations of the public trust and misuse of federal staff and resources. Such allegations have been included in past articles of impeachment and would be most serious in relation to the ongoing investigation into influence peddling by the Biden family,” Turley added.

Republicans have a target-rich environment to pick from on articles of impeachment.

Will they pursue this thread?
