(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Secretary of State Antony Blinken for two years served as managing director of the think tank where President Joe Biden stashed classified documents that he illegally removed from the White House from his stint as vice president, when Blinken served as his national security adviser.
“I had no knowledge of it at the time,” Blinken claimed about his time overseeing operations for the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, one of a growing number of locations where Biden’s classified documents have been found.
Blinken isn’t the only Biden confidant with integral ties to the controversial China-linked think tank. Penn Biden Center Managing Director Michael Carpenter was a chief adviser for Biden’s Ukrainian dealings during his time as vice president.
Carpenter was also in close contact at the time with alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella, who helped Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., create a bogus Ukrainian narrative that served as a leg for the 2019 impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, according to RealClear Investigations senior reporter Paul Sperry.
The classified material found in the think tank managed by Carpenter reportedly included documents and materials relating to Biden’s dealings with Ukraine, among other countries.

Carpenter, sporting a spiffy green tie, was on stage with Biden when he boasted about his time as vice president threatening to withhold $1 billion in aid to Ukraine unless it fired a prosecutor who happened to be investigating corruption linked to the energy company Burisma.
Hunter Biden, a crack-addict with no experience in the energy sector, had been paid upwards of $80,000 a month to serve on the board of Burisma, a position he received shortly after his father was asked to oversee Ukrainian affairs as Barack Obama’s vice president.
Further entwining the web, one of Biden’s personal attorneys who discovered the classified documents was Dana Remus, who had worked with an Obama-appointed archivist to “review” Trump’s records, Sperry reported.
Remus left the White House one month before suddenly finding the classified documents.
