      That will be relevant when we get to the point where it can be proved that Biden knew about the classified documents. Until then, at worst, he was careless. (At best, someone else was careless.)

      And for being careless, a slap on the wrist is standard.

          Can't do worse than all the claims about transparency and total cooperation that we're seeing from the Biden Administration.

            I hadn't heard that. Do you have a source?

            And I'm sure Biden though he could keep those classified documents because he did. Unless you are claiming that he had no idea...
            I'm claiming that no one can yet prove beyond a reasonable doubt, using publicly available information, that Biden knew he had them.

            No, his aides could have mistakenly taken them and he thought (rightly or wrongly) that he could keep them.
            If that was the case, then he could not have declassified them while he was president and purportedly had the power to do so. So keeping them after he found out about them would have been a crime.

              Your arguments here give me deja vu of the Burisma thread and the laptop story. It's incredible how you can be on the wrong side of the argument so many times.

                AFAIK, they were never able to prove that Hillary tried to destroy evidence on the server, nor BlackBerry phones, whether before or after any such injunction. (While there were people working for Hillary who did those things, they haven't claimed that it was at her direction.)

                Give me a break I only have to assume you were being purposely obtuse with that question or one of the low information voters that the Democrats love because they are more apt to vote Democrat. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and go with the former.
                Well, I'll just assume that you are one of those people who thinks you know more than you do.

                  Then why did he say he had no regrets about the handling of the documents? Why even say that? Why not say he didn't even know that he had them?

                  The point is you are not willing to give the same consideration to Trump as you did to Biden considering the initial gathering of the documents.

                    Biden could not have removed them from the SCIF unintentionally. He also was keeping them where they were not supposed to be (he should have returned them to the SCIF within the day according to the rule you posted). Also some of the cases listed were basically carelessness or they thought they had a good reason to have the documents.

                    Also I have been watching/reading news today and a couple of Senators have mentioned that they have never been allowed to take documents from a SCIF and they were not even allowed to take notes to take with them on the documents. So that puts doubts on the source you provided that taking documents from a SCIF is allowed and routine.

                    "When we view documents we have to leave them in the room where we see them without taking notes, without making copies, without any kind of transcription and I think that kind of practice prevailed when then-Sen. Biden looked at them as well," Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said.


                    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he didn't know it was possible to take documents out of the sensitive compartmentalized information facility, known as the SCIF.

                    Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., called it "unthinkable."

                    “The process we go through is so elaborate and careful to review any of these documents that I can’t understand how any individual, senator can take possession of a classified document, let alone remove it to another location," Durbin said.

                      Didn't he say that on a Friday a day or two before they announced finding more documents?

                      When they keep getting found in his personal, private library in different places, it becomes incredibly difficult to maintain that.

                          Pick one that you want to defend as being no worse than what Biden has done (keeping in mind that you can't prove that Biden knew he had classified documents at Penn or in his home).

                          You mean this source?

                            Your source is specific rules regarding one committee. It is not law.

                            and as I said, actual Senators claim otherwise than your source. I would think they would actually know one way or another, given that they are actually there and have actually handled classified documents.

                              In context, he is not saying that there are no more classified documents:

                              Q Do you have any regret, sir, that you did not reveal the existence of the documents back in November, before the midterms?

                              THE PRESIDENT: Just hang on, okay?

                              Look, as we found — we found a handful of documents that were failed — were filed in the wrong place. We immediately turned them over to the Archives and the Justice Department. We’re fully cooperating and looking forward to getting this resolved quickly.

                              I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets. I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. It’s exactly what we’re doing. There is no there there.

                              Thank you.

                              source

                              Then why did he say he had no regrets about the handling of the documents? Why even say that? Why not say he didn't even know that he had them?
                              There seem to be multiple opinions about what exactly Biden said he has no regrets about.

                              President Biden said on Thursday that he had “no regrets” that the White House did not disclose before the midterm elections that classified documents from his time as vice president were found in his private office in early November.

                              source

                              The point is you are not willing to give the same consideration to Trump as you did to Biden considering the initial gathering of the documents.
                              I'm willing to give Trump the exact same consideration as Biden. All he has to do is say (with a straight face) that he didn't know that he had any classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.
