Over the course of 2023, it’s come to the attention of Americans that Joe Biden kept hidden documents stashed in an old office. These documents reportedly contain information about Biden’s family, along with foreign affairs in different countries.
Naturally, the White House is trying to keep this entire story very close to the vest. The Biden administration is not being transparent about what happened or why this happened. Therefore, Americans are having to get their news from other sources.
The documents in question carry over from Biden’s time as vice president. However, vice presidents do not have the power to declassify documents. As such, Biden is now facing impeachment calls from lawmakers like Rep. Marjorie Greene.
Biden may not want to talk about this issue. Though Republicans, like House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, are keeping it at the forefront of public discourse, per The Hill.
McCarthy Spills the Beans
The House Speaker declared that contrary to Biden’s assertions that he didn’t know of the hidden documents, the facts of the matter reveal otherwise.
McCarthy stated that if the president truly had no knowledge of these records as he claimed, he wouldn’t have ordered attorneys to retrieve anything from his office.
Furthermore, the GOP House Speaker pointed out that the president owes Americans a lot of answers, before noting the current Congress is now equipped to retrieve these answers.

With Republicans controlling the House of Representatives, the party has the power to investigate Hunter Biden, these newly found documents in Biden’s DC office, and more.
As all this plays out, the White House has released another statement, alleging these documents were mistakenly “misplaced.”
It’s safe to say that most Americans who aren’t in Biden’s fan club simply aren’t falling for the narrative that he didn’t know these records were in his own office.
One Scandal After the Next
Ever since Joe Biden got into office, there’s been an unfortunate pattern with him. This president has a tendency to dig himself into various holes (whether it’s about policy or other matters) and then pretend like it’s no big deal.
Between inflation, the horrible US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, and other pressing matters, this president can’t seem to stay above board. At the rate things are going, it is just a matter of time before yet another scandal pertaining to Biden rears its ugly head.

When this does happen, Biden will inevitably have an excuse waiting, rather than a truthful, thoughtful explanation for the American people.
