(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The U.S. Secret Service is ready to offer names of people who visited President Joe Biden’s beach enclave in Delaware where he stashed classified documents, if Congress makes the request.
The White House, however, keeps going along with the narrative that a formal visitor log for the personal residence where classified documents were found simply doesn’t exist, according to Fox News.
Even though it is true that the White House itself did not keep a formal list, the Secret Service does collect information on guests who regularly visited Biden’s home. Whether or not the Secret Service will put one’s name on their list depends on many different factors, including proximity to Biden and the nature of the background check.
“The Secret Service does not maintain visitor logs at the private residences of protectees,” U.S. Secret Service chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi said.
“While the Secret Service does generate law enforcement and criminal justice information records for various individuals who may come into contact with Secret Service protected sites, we are not able to comment further as this speaks to the means and methods of our protective operations.”
The Secret Service is ready to provide available background information on Biden’s residence’s guests of Congress will request it. Biden and the Secret Service have had a contentious relationship in the past, including a notorious rift over whether Biden’s dog bit and injured agents.
Biden has expressed concern about the loyalty of agents over fears that “the Secret Service is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative” and “MAGA sympathizers,” according to excerpts of Chris Whipple’s new book The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House.
According to the book, Biden is reportedly so suspect and paranoid about the Secret Service that he won’t speak freely if agents are within earshot.
