Trump and Biden classified documents compared
January 13, 2023 - Joe Biden's critics are quickly drawing comparisons between the discovery of classified documents linked to the president and the ongoing investigation into Donald Trump’s handling of classified material following his departure from the White House.
The discovery of classified documents from the Biden-Obama administration in at least two locations linked to Joe Biden has been greeted with dismay by Democrats and glee by Republicans, given the extensive legal troubles that Donald Trump faces for taking classified papers to his Florida resort.
The Justice Department is scrutinizing both situations. Under the Presidential Records Act, White House records are supposed to go to the National Archives and Records Administration once an administration departs.
