Several MAGAs Have Been Asking, So I'll Provide Some Answers

1. Biden and Dems are hypocrites, because Biden had confidential docs, so he must be lying about not knowing he had them.

A1: Mike Pence, made multiple statements, confirming that he has no confidential documents. Today, it was announced that a bunch of confidential documents were found at Pence's home, in Carmel, Indiana, inside 4 boxes. Was Mike Pence lying, or does shit happen?

2. Why were Biden's attorneys and not the FBI, looking through the Biden documents, from his previous time in office, and stored at private residences/office, and not the DOJ? He's a hypocrite, and must be hiding something, but that's how liberals roll.

A2: Because this is what some ex or current officials do. They hire officers of the court, for various due diligence purposes, to make sure the process is untarnished. Why, just today, Mike Pence announced, that his attorneys conducted a search of four boxes of documents, stored at his home, and found confidential documents.

3. Biden is such a hypocrite. His attorneys found confidential documents at his private office, on Nov 2nd, but that was not made public, until a few weeks later, after the Nov 8th mid-term elections.

A3: Looks like Biden's attorneys notified the DOJ, immediately, and arrangements were made to have the government take possession of said records. Announcements were not made, while the process was underway. And, what do you know! Mike Pence's private attorneys, found confidential documents last week, and they notified the DOJ immediately. The latter followed the same procedure. We found out about it today, because Pence's sources decided to make it public.

Just as a reminder, the DOJ has no issue with government officials accidentally having Confidential Information. The issue is when said officials deny, then, refuse to cooperate, then throw tantrums, and then use these Confidential Documents as props, in Mar-a-Lago, to enhance the god awful gold-plated decor.

Hey, turns out the process of keeping track of confidential information is broken, and officials can actually end up accidentally come into possession of confidential documents. The criminality part comes down to how they decide to handle the situation.
Lemme just add a few salient quotes"

"In my administration, I'm going to enforce all laws concerning the protection of classified information," — Candidate Donald J Trump, Aug. 16, 2016, West Bend, Wisconsin

"On political corruption, we are going to restore honor to our government. In my administration, I'm going to enforce all laws concerning the protection of classified information. No one will be above the law." — Candidate Donald J Trump, Aug. 18, 2016, Charlotte NC

"One of the first things we must do is to enforce all classification rules and to enforce all laws relating to the handling of classified information." — Candidate Donald J Trump, Sept 7, 2016, Philadelphia

The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!

@ElwoodBlues ... and let's not forget his method of declassifying documents, by wishing them so, therefore he was never in possession of declassified documents.

I'm bookmarking this for future reference.

The bigger issue is that this whole thing is nothing but one giant distraction. Unrest in Ukraine, election fraud agitators, lying among members of our own government, insurrection and criminal cases.

[i]What is it they want you to be distracted with?[/i]

This is a bright shiny object issue that has been in play for decades in Washington and is only for this moment the darling child topic each side will sling mud over as the politicians go about their business.

@Graylight Never attribute to malice, that which is adequately explained by stupidity, and juvenile behavior.
Graylight · 46-50, F
@Northwest Dear God, this is so true.
You should mark your answers in bold, for better visibility 😉

And might I add, President Biden wasn’t asked to hand over any documents. He did it voluntarily! 😇
@LordShadowfire Exactly!

He’s setting a fine example on how Presidents should behave in the White House.

And notice how I always call him President Biden and not just Biden? That’s coz he deserves that respect. We’re not fighting a war, covid or recession today…THANKS to President Biden.
LordShadowfire · 46-50, M
@Vivaci Yes. He's not perfect, and some of the stuff he's done makes me angry, but he has definitely earned that title.
@LordShadowfire Yeah…looking at what he’s done in the past 2 years, it’s obvious that he’s a decent and competent diplomat with excellent leadership skills. That only goes to show that maybe he had no other choice to do what he did in the past. Diplomatic relations demand you put your country first, but might have to turn a blind eye to do that sometimes. It’s not easy to please everyone in the room all the time or do the right thing under the circumstances.
What next, will documents be discovered at Jimmy Carter’s home?

Believe it or not, LBJ took several top secret documents he wasn’t authorized to have when he left the White House in 1968. These concerned the Vietnam War. They came to light in the early 1990s.

@LeopoldBloom The techie in me, says that there is a solution. Going "digital" will make that even simpler, but even the hard copies, can be electronically tagged with an enhanced "printed" RFID passive circuit.

This is not really far fetched. About 3 decades ago, printer vendors were ordered to include "invisible" patterns into printed documents, as requested by the Treasury. Not a conspiracy theory, as it's something I had to implement, as part of the OS. This makes it possible for the right people, to determine which printer the document was used, and in more recent times, its serial number.

Only certain printers are allowed to print certain documents, and when they produced, they embed a GPS code tracker in them. It's too unlike what ER staff use, to track surgical implements, to make sure none ends up inside the patient, something that used to happen. There's a little bit more to it here, but it's very doable, especially with all the resources available to the government. The government may even be able to sell the end product to private business.
@Northwest I can't remember the name for it, but many companies will embed unique codes in emails so they will know who leaked them. This can be as simple as changing the font of one letter to a slightly different one - nothing the user will notice but it allows a leak to be traced back to a particular person. Elon Musk is notorious for this.

The way around it is to copy the message and change the formatting. So if anyone was intent enough, they would just take a photo of a classified document. But your system would at least stop inadvertent mistakes.

@LeopoldBloom There are secure ways to prevent a message from getting modified. A Checksum is one of the simplest and most effective methods. Requiring a certain email software, and a document verifier, would also be another solution. Bottom line: there are solutions, but the government needs to get its act together.

You point to Mike Pence for examples. Pence has always come across to me as a "do the right thing" kind of guy. A "Hank Hill". His motivation may be that he plans on running for president so he wants to make sure he is in the clear, but either way I give him props for taking the initiative.

@Northwest Maybe former senator Jeff Flake.

@trollslayer [quote]Maybe former senator Jeff Flake.[/quote]

Did his lawyer find classified documents in his house?
Graylight · 46-50, F
@trollslayer They were coming for him next. There's no "do the right thing" moment here.
