Biden comments on classified documents arson rampage: ‘Remind me of all the defendants I’ve prosecuted’

Judge Jeanine Pirro focused on comments President Biden made Thursday after being asked about his escalating classified documents scandal, saying the latest comments remind her of things she heard in court.

Biden asserted Thursday that “there is no ‘there’ there” regarding his alleged mishandling of classified documents at his Greenville, Del., home and former office linked to the University of Pennsylvania.

“I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I don’t regret it. I’m following what the lawyers have told me. They want me to do exactly what we’re doing. There’s no ‘there’ there,” Biden said. he told reporters.

In “The Five”, Pirro said that, in reality, “there is a lot there”.

“It reminds me of all the defendants I’ve prosecuted: ‘There’s no ‘there’ there,'” he said on “The Five” on Friday. “Here’s what it is: Mike Davis wrote a great article in Newsweek and he talks about robbery being a federal crime. I think it’s federal code section 793. And he talks about the fact that this is, you know, [a] ‘blame your secretary’ [situation]. Give me a break.”

Pirro likened that last reported excuse as similar to an office worker having an extramarital affair with his secretary, who later tells his wife that his adultery was the secretary’s fault.

“This is what happens with these classified documents,” he added. “Like I said, I had no right to them. He was not president. I couldn’t declassify them.”

The documents date back to 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 tranche of documents was discovered in November.

He pointed to reports that the University of Pennsylvania received funding, though not necessarily for the center itself, from the Chinese government, linking that alleged situation to Hunter Biden’s alleged business comfort with Chinese Communist Party-linked companies.

“His son has made millions from the Chinese, the same son who complains about having to pay his father’s bills and paying $50,000 a month, which apparently, according to Miranda Devine, is the same amount of money he received from China in a of their deals,” Pirro said. He added that unlike the situation in the former President Trump document, Biden did not have the same declassification influence as a sitting president while he was vice president.

As for UPenn, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, asked university president M. Elizabeth Magill to provide data on “anonymous Chinese donations to UPenn and the Penn Biden Center.”

“The Committee learned that UPenn received millions of dollars from anonymous Chinese sources, with a sharp increase in donations when it was announced that then-former Vice President Biden would lead the Penn Biden Center initiative. Following the formation of the Penn Biden Center, the Donations from China tripled and continued as Joe Biden explored a possible run for president,” the Committee said in part in a statement on its website.

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