(Headline USA) Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, urged the Justice Department to search President Joe Biden’s papers at the University of Delaware after more classified documents from his time in the Senate were discovered at his Delaware residence.
Cruz pointed out that Biden’s documents have been found in multiple locations, including at his Washington, D.C. think tank and his Wilmington home. Those papers date all the way back to Biden’s Senate career, which means there are likely plenty more out there, Cruz said.
“The next step in this scandal is going to be, OK, if Biden’s Senate documents include classified documents outside of classified settings — which is illegal — how many more classified documents are illegally in his Senate papers?” he said on his podcast, Verdict.
In fact, the University of Delaware has admitted it has more than 1,800 boxes from Biden’s 36 years in the Senate, Cruz noted.
“During the 2020 campaign, there was a concerted media effort to try to get access to those documents. In particular, there were allegations of sexual harassment raised against Joe Biden, and the media wanted to examine the documents on those allegations of sexual harassment,” Cruz said. “The University of Delaware has said, nope, they’re not releasing the documents to anybody until two years after Biden retires from public life.”
If the Justice Department cared about thoroughly investigating Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, it would “examine all 1,850 boxes of those Senate records to see how many additional classified documents are in all those records,” Cruz said.
“The answer should be none. But given Biden’s pattern, we should have zero confidence that there are not multiple classified documents within those 1,850 boxes of Senate records.”
Other Republicans blasted Biden over the scandal, pointing out that it would have been next to impossible for him to take classified records out of the Senate because of the legislative chamber’s strict regulations.
“They found classified documents from when Biden was a senator. I’m not even sure how that happens unless a Senator stuffs the documents in their pants or somewhere else,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., wrote on Twitter.
