Biden Found Guilty, but Not Charged
The United States Justice Department concluded that President Joe Biden should not be charged for “willfully retain[ing] and disclos[ing] classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen,” because he is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” who would be difficult to convict, according to a report from Special Counsel Robert Hur released Thursday.
Why it matters: On June 8, 2023, former President Donald Trump was indicted for possession of classified documents—even though, as president, he had the right to declassify documents, and the documents were secure in his home in Mar-a-lago.
Biden, however, was not charged even though he took documents as a senator, when he did not have the right to declassify or take documents home, and he kept them in less-secure locations.
This shows a blatant double-standard. “This has now proved to be a two-tiered system of justice and unconstitutional selective prosecution!” Trump said.
Details: Biden’s documents included:
1) marked classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, and 2) notebooks containing Mr. Biden’s handwritten entries about issues of national security and foreign policy implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods.
In addition, Biden’s ghostwriter admitted to deleting evidence after the special counsel was appointed. But he has not been charged for obstruction of justice.
Biden’s mental state: Biden’s age is no reason to excuse lawbreaking. But the report claims that his faulty memory is reason to believe this was “an innocent mistake” that doesn’t warrant prosecution. That is the basis of the report’s claim.
In all, the document doesn’t support Biden’s pardon, but it does support the claim he is unfit for office. It notes
Mr. Biden’s memory also appeared to have significant limitations—both at the time he spoke to Zwonitzer in 2017, as evidenced by their recorded conversations, and today, as evidenced by his recorded interview with our office. Mr. Biden’s recorded conversations with Zwonitzer from 2017 are often painfully slow, with Mr. Biden struggling to remember events and straining at times to read and relay his own notebook entries.
Concerning his 2023 interview on the matter, the report says his “memory was worse,” forgetting
- when his vice presidential term ended (“If it was 2013, when did I stop being vice president?”)
- when his vice presidential term began (“In 2009, am I still vice president?”)
- when his son Beau died (“… even within several years”).
The report notes that Biden also said he “‘had a real difference’ of opinion with Gen. Karl Eikenberry, when, in fact, Eikenberry was an ally whom Mr. Biden cited approvingly ….”
Big picture: This two-tiered system of justice fulfills Bible prophecies directed specifically at America today. But the Bible says this corruption will be stopped.
