It’s rare that you find MSNBC agreeing with conservative media, but on a recent MSNBC panel, NBC’s Justice and Intelligence correspondent Ken Dilanian discussed the recent Biden classified documents scandal and suggested that the Biden Administration was in the wrong for not telling Americans about the documents before midterms. Specifically, Dilanian said, during his somewhat surprising questioning of the Biden Administration and what it did:
“Lawyers found them, as soon as they found them, the White House is saying, they turned them over to the National Archives which then got the Justice Department involved.”
“Attorney General Merrick Garland at some point referred this matter to the U.S. attorney in Chicago who is one of two Trump holdovers in the administration. In other words, he was appointed by Donald Trump and they did that on purpose to create an appearance of independence here and that U.S. Attorney going to decide whether there needs to be a criminal investigation and if there is, we can presume that Merrick Garland would appoint a special counsel, but I think we’re a long way from that because from the White House account, this was inadvertent and they self-reported and they acted immediately.
“Nonetheless there are some significant concerns here, A) how did these classified documents get to a place they shouldn’t have been and B) why did the White House sit on this for so long? They knew six days before the November midterm. Joe Biden knew, his aides knew, yet they did not tell the public until this leaked to the news media.”
Shockingly, that meant that MSNBC was making the same point as Daily Caller Editorial Director and WMAL host Vince Coglianese. He said during his radio show on Tuesday that:
“The United States government, which is currently led by Joe Biden, and the Justice Department, which is currently led by Merrick Garland, decided it was in your best interest to withhold from you that they had found classified information inside of Joe Biden’s private offices from his time as vice president that had clearly been there for some length of time over the course of the last six years.
“Well … it is, of course, after the midterms, the damage of such a revelation is gone, once again the Justice Department has meddled in an election, refused to tell the American people things that were germane ahead of an election so that they could make a reasoned judgement about whether or not they wanted to continue to support the party in power.”
And not only were the documents found in a private office, but that office was connected to the Chinese Communist Party through the University of Pennsylvania, which accepted tens of millions of dollars in suspicious Chinese donations around the time Biden was leaving the office as VP.
So, classified Biden documents were found in the possession of a Chinese-connected entity…and the DOJ knew before midterms…but it hid that from the American people, once again covering for Democrats. And that’s so scandalous that now even leftist corporate news is upset about it.
