Biden’s comments on classified documents sparked uproar: ‘Remind me of every defendant I have accused’

Refining comments President Biden made Thursday after being asked about his growing classified documents scandal, Justice Jeanine Pirro said the recent remarks reminded her of things she heard in court.

Biden claimed Thursday “there is no ‘there’ there” in relation to his alleged misuse of classified documents at his home in Greenville, Delaware, and his former office affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania.

“I think you’ll find there’s nothing there. I do not regret it. I follow what the lawyers told me. You want me to do exactly what we do. There is no ‘there,'” Biden told reporters.

On “The Five,” Pirro said that “there’s actually a lot there.”

“It reminds me of every defendant I’ve ever accused, ‘There’s no ‘there’,” she told The Five on Friday. “Here’s what’s available: Mike Davis wrote a great article in Newsweek and he talks about stealing being a federal crime. I think it’s section 793 of the federal law. And he talks about the fact that this, you know [a] ‘blame your secretary’ [situation]. Give me a break.”

Pirro compared this most recently reported apology to an office worker having an extramarital affair with his secretary, who later tells his wife his adultery was the secretary’s fault.

“Here’s the thing about these classified documents,” she added. “Like I said, he had no right to it. He wasn’t president. He couldn’t release her.”

The documents date from Biden’s time as Vice President. Pirro noted a chronological gap between the end of the Obama-Biden administration and the establishment of the Penn Biden Center in Washington, where the first batch of documents was discovered in November.

She noted reports that the University of Pennsylvania had received funding from the Chinese government — though not necessarily for the center itself — and linked this alleged situation to Hunter Biden’s alleged commercial comfort with Chinese Communist Party-affiliated companies .

“His son made millions from the Chinese, the same son who complained about having to pay his father’s bills and put in $50,000 a month, which apparently, according to Miranda Devine, is the same amount of money he’s getting from China got his deals all of a sudden,” Pirro said. She added that unlike former President Trump’s document situation, Biden did not have the same leverage on the declassification as an incumbent president while he was vice president.

Regarding UPenn, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., asked University President M. Elizabeth Magill to provide data on reported “anonymous Chinese donations to UPenn and the Penn Biden Center.”

“The committee has learned that UPenn has received millions of dollars from anonymous Chinese sources, with a significant increase in donations when then-former Vice President Biden was announced as the leader of the Penn Biden Center initiative. After the founding of the Penn Biden Center, donations from China tripled and continued while Joe Biden explored a possible presidential bid,” the committee said, in part, in a statement on its website.

A UPenn spokesperson told the West Philadelphia Institution newspaper, The Daily Pennsylvanian, that it is “important to reiterate that the Penn Biden Center has never solicited or received any gifts from Chinese or other foreign companies.”
