Republicans have been heavily focused in recent days on the revelation that Joe Biden was in possession of classified material that his lawyers turned over to the proper authorities. They are doing their best to claim that this makes Biden just as guilty as Donald Trump is, or maybe Trump isn’t even at fault at all and Biden is the only one who should be facing scrutiny. The truth is that there are no similarities between the circumstances of the two cases, as the documents left behind by Joe Biden were immediately reported to the National Archives when found, whereas there is evidence that Trump specifically directed for the documents to be taken to his residence. Trump also refused to comply with requests to send them over to the Archives and lied about doing so, leading to the search and seizure at his Mar-a-Lago home. Some right-wingers are making the case that this exonerates Trump and that the DOJ’s investigation into him on this matter should come to an end. Even if Biden was guilty of wrongdoing, that would do nothing to help or hurt Trump’s case as it’s a completely separate one and this is simply not how the American legal system works.
