The recent actions of the Justice Department concerning President Joe Biden and his mishandling of classified materials are alarming and show yet again why this administration needs to be held accountable.
In November, classified materials were found in Biden’s think tank office and residence. Instead of launching a full investigation into this incident, the Justice Department chose to appoint former U.S Attorney Robert Hur as a “special counsel” with limited scope. This decision was made despite the fact that the House Judiciary Committee had requested full records about the investigation from them. Even worse, the Justice Department refused to provide these records citing their “longstanding policy” that such disclosures could interfere with investigations – a policy which has conveniently gone unmentioned until now.
The department’s refusal to provide the records is particularly disconcerting considering that Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee have also been blocked from performing their oversight duties due to their lack of information regarding this matter. It appears as though this administration is more concerned about protecting Joe Biden than getting to the bottom of what really happened in November.
This isn’t just an issue concerning Joe Biden either – it calls into question the integrity of our entire justice system. How can we trust that justice will be served when powerful people like Joe Biden seem immune from proper investigation? Furthermore, how can Americans trust that investigations into classified materials will even occur if something similar happens again in the future? As citizens, we should not accept anything less than full transparency when it comes to matters such as these and demand answers until they are provided.
It is time for accountability and transparency within the Justice Department – Americans need clear evidence that corruption won’t be tolerated no matter who you are or what your position may be. We should not allow our justice system or any president to become above reproach or avoid proper scrutiny, because doing so would set a dangerous precedent for our democracy moving forward.
