An Inconvenient Truth Regarding the Biden Classified Documents Ordeal
We must demand accountability, regardless of political affiliation
If President Joe Biden did something illegal regarding the current classified document matter, I want him prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Unlike the MAGA cult, which will never accept such a fate for their dear leader, we progressives should and must accept such an outcome. Doing otherwise only puts us in the same boat as them.

Garland is a cautious guy who tries to maintain his independence from the executive branch. Again, MAGA world wouldn’t support Garland’s action even if he’d appointed Trump himself. However, the rest of America should be confident that whatever comes out of the investigation will have some modicum of fairness.
I do not think that Biden violated the law. I doubt they’ll find wrongdoing, with the most likely outcome being that the documents were mishandled. Reckless and sloppy? Yes. Illegal? I doubt it. For it to be unlawful, the main factor to consider is the intent of the person who had the documents in their possession. Did he obstruct…
