(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Former President Donald Trump delivered a round of blistering criticism over the reported absence of visitor logs at the home where embattled President Joe Biden stashed troves of classified documents.
Biden has spent a huge chunk of his presidency — 40% of it — both at his Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach vacation homes, according to the Gateway Pundit. White House lawyers have conceded there were no visitor logs at Biden’s Wilmington enclave.
“The White House just announced that there are no LOGS or information of any kind on visitors to the Wilmington house and flimsy, unlocked, and unsecured, but now very famous, garage. Maybe they are smarter than we think!” Trump wrote.
When it was revealed that Biden was storing classified documents at one of his residences’ garages in Wilmington, Republicans from Congress called for the White House to release visitor logs of Biden’s homes, but until Monday, the White House refused to say if such information would be divulged, BBC News reported.
“President Biden’s mishandling of classified materials raises the issue of whether he has jeopardized our national security,” Republican House Oversight Chairman James Comer wrote in a letter to the White House over the weekend. “Without a list of individuals who have visited his residence, the American people will never know who had access to these highly sensitive documents.”
The White House on Monday changed its tune, claiming it was not standard practice to track who visits the private homes of presidents, and that no such visitor logs existed.
“Like every president across decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” yammered Ian Sams, spokesperson for the White House counsel, defending Biden’s actions.
The shelf-life of White House excuses could be limited by outside factors that ultimately reveal an insight of who has been visiting the home where Biden had stashed classified documents in a garage.
The Secret Service, which maintains a permanent presence at Biden’s homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, screens visitors before they enter, according to BBC News. While the agency doesn’t maintain a log, it puts eyes on everyone who enters.
