Although the Biden Administration continuously boasts of its transparency with the American public, it has been revealed that the National Archives was blocked from releasing a statement on the discovery of classified documents in Biden’s think-tank office ahead of the November midterm elections.
On Tuesday, Kentucky Rep. James Comer questioned who gave the Archives the order, saying that it could only have been the White House or the Department of Justice. Comer revealed that the National Archives general counsel Gary Stern told lawmakers that he could not tell them where the order came from, but confirmed that they were ordered not to make a press release regarding the findings.
“There are only two people that could have given those orders, and that’s either the Department of Justice with Merrick Garland or the White House with Joe Biden,” Comer said in a Fox News appearance. “So it shows right there that this Department of Justice and this White House is interfering with this.”
Comer also addressed the double standard in how Donald Trump’s possession of classified documents was handled versus Joe Biden’s.
“If you go on the National Archives website, there’s pages and pages of press releases and information about the FBI’s raid into Mar-a-Lago and Donald Trump’s possession of classified documents, but there’s nothing on the website about Joe Biden,” said Comer. “There wasn’t any press release or anything.”

After the FBI found classified documents in Biden’s office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Engagement, they searched the office again in mid-November.
Although the Biden Regime tries to gaslight the American public into thinking they are “transparent,” no one from this administration will comment on whether more documents were found in the second search.
On Tuesday, a CNN reporter asked Kate Bedingfield, the White House Communications Director, if any additional documents were found at the office. Bedingfield replied that she cannot comment on this matter, but made sure to remind everyone how “transparent” they are being.
“That’s not something I can comment on from here. That’s something you’ll need to ask the Justice Department,” Bedingfield said. “What I can say is that we have been cooperative and transparent from the outset. We’ve put out multiple statements from the President’s personal attorney describing the process and being clear that the President takes this seriously.”
