The White House accuses the opposition of “hypocrisy” over confidential Biden documents

The White House on Tuesday accused Republicans of “hypocrisy” over the confidential documents found at Joe Biden’s home and pledged that it would only work with elected congressmen on “good faith” requests for information.

“Your outrage is purely theatre,” said Presidential spokesman Ian Sams in an exchange with the press about these very embarrassing discoveries for the American President.

After leaking to the media, the White House admitted last week that files from Joe Biden’s 2009-2017 vice presidency were being held at one of his former offices in Washington and at his family’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, east .

The case is embarrassing because Democrats have not hesitated to criticize former Republican President Donald Trump, who was the target of an inquest for keeping entire cases of documents when he left Washington in 2021.

To allay suspicions of “double standards,” the Justice Department on Thursday entrusted the investigation of Joe Biden’s files to an independent special prosecutor, as it had done for Donald Trump.

The Republican opposition nonetheless denounced the Executive Branch’s drip communications. She used her narrow majority in the House of Representatives to launch a parliamentary inquiry and demanded more information.

“We have received a number of letters from the Chairman of the Executive Oversight Commission on this subject,” confirmed Ian Sams. “We are reviewing these letters and will make a decision in due course.”

“We will respond in good faith, but we expect the elected members of Congress to show the same good faith” and “we will denounce any rampant hypocrisy that would show a lack of credibility in these requests,” he said.

According to him, Republicans are “pretending to be outraged while defending the former president’s actions.” “You decided on a political stunt.”

The spokesman also insisted on Joe Biden’s cooperation with justice, while his predecessor had refused to return his archives, requiring federal officers to search his Florida home this summer to retrieve them.

Incidentally, Ian Sams hid behind the confidentiality of the inquest to refuse to answer specific questions from journalists.
