Classified documents 1

“Classified documents” 1, Monterey Herald – Jan. 27, 2023

Once again on the Sunday news comment operas, Sen. Dick Durbin made the misleading comparison that Biden was being open and transparent about classified documents he had, but Trump wasn’t. What Durbin didn’t tell us was that some of Biden’s documents were almost 15 years old and had not been made public until now. Trump never kept his documents next to his Corvette, either. Trump kept his documents using a guarded, government approved storage method and believed he had the authority to declassify them.

All of this fuss is once again ignoring many positive achievements Trump made while in office like a prosperous economy and rapid development of corona virus vaccines. Biden’s chances of re-election are slim no matter who the Republicans nominate in 2024.
