Classified Docs snare Trump; what about Biden?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

When former President Donald Trump was indicted over classified documents, several prominent conservatives immediately asked about his successor.

Despite his early crowing about irresponsibility, President Joe Biden remains under investigation himself for his sloppy record keeping, and Republicans want to know where that investigation stands in light of the Trump news.

“Today is indeed a dark day for the United States of America,” tweeted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). “It is unconscionable for a president to indict the leading candidate opposing him. Joe Biden kept classified documents for decades.”

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was one of many others making a similar point — that there’s a double standard, at best, at play in Trump’s prosecution.

“If the president in power can just jail his political opponents, which is what Joe Biden is trying to do tonight, we don’t have a republic anymore,” Hawley said on Fox News. “We don’t have the rule of law. We don’t have the Constitution.”

While Biden has been under investigation by special counsel Robert Hur for his own handling of classified documents since January, it will likely be a while before any news emerges.
