Former President Barack Obama’s ethics advisor is holding nothing back in regard to the disturbing discovery of classified documents at multiple locations.
According to The Daily Wire, during an interview Obama-era ethics chief Walter Shaub slammed President Biden for recklessly storing the classified materials.
“It’s nothing like Trump’s deliberate refusal to return classified records demanded by the National Archives, but Biden’s own retention of classified records reflects an inexcusable neglect of the most basic security protocols,” Shaub told Fox News. “The fact that the White House didn’t mention that records were found in more than one location when first asked about them was a breach of trust with the public and a self-inflicted wound.”
“Based on what we know so far, it seems unlikely that he’s at risk of any of legal consequences,” Shaub claimed, “but I’m glad Garland appointed a special counsel to show even-handed treatment of the current and former president.”
Last Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed former U.S. attorney Robert Hur to handle the investigation into the documents.
The review began after Biden’s personal attorney found 10 classified documents stashed in an envelope in the president’s private office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C.
The documents were immediately turned over to the National Archives for storage, said Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president. However, another batch of documents has since been discovered at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Del.
