(ConservativeHub.com) – Former President Donald Trump has claimed that President Joe Biden was uncooperative in a case involving classified documents. Trump, who is facing a criminal trial in Florida for allegedly mishandling classified documents, suggested that Biden, in contrast, seems to have been cleared from similar accusations.
According to a report by CNN in November, Biden was not expected to face charges related to mishandling classified documents during his tenure as vice president and in the period thereafter.
The issue was highlighted in ABC’s show “The Year,” where former communications director George Stephanopoulos discussed the allegations against Trump. Reacting to this, Trump took to Truth Social, his social media platform, to express his views on Wednesday, December 27. He accused Biden of sending classified documents to various locations, including Chinatown in D.C., and raised questions about Biden’s financial dealings with China. Trump suggested there was a distinction in how the Presidential Records Act applied to him as president, but not to Biden.
Trump has accused the media and the Democrats of trying to find a way to absolve Biden of any wrongdoing while unfairly targeting him. He expressed confidence that the American public would see through this alleged bias.
In a related development, Politico reported in November that U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon rejected a bid to postpone the classified document trial. However, while she maintained the May 20 start date, she also extended several pre-trial deadlines. The outlet reported her handling of the case could be seen as a possible move toward postponement in the coming months.
Meanwhile, Biden expressed doubts about the concept of presidential immunity in criminal prosecutions, as reported by the Washington Examiner. This statement comes amid ongoing legal discussions and public debate about the handling of classified documents by high-ranking officials.
