The chiefs of two House committees have subpoenaed the Biden administration for all of the records, transcripts, notes, video and audio files that special counsel Robert Hurt accumulated during his investigation of Joe Biden for his apparent retention, without authority, of classified documents from when he was senator and vice president.

Those documents were found in Biden’s home, a private office and even in an unsecured garage.

Hur concluded Biden probably willfully and knowingly violated federal law regarding the documents, but recommended no charges be filed because of Biden’s “diminished” capacity. He determined a jury likely would view Biden as an old man with failing memory and be sympathetic.

That determination came just as the House Judiciary and Oversight Accountability committees are investigating Biden for possible impeachment, focusing among other issues on the Biden family’s apparent influence peddling scheme that over the years has brought tens of millions of dollars to family members, all over access to “the brand,” Joe Biden.

Judiciary chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Oversight chairman James Comer, R-Ky., have written to Attorney General Merrick Garland to explain their need for the evidence, and to accompany a subpoena for that information.

Also being sought is evidence regarding a telephone call in 2015, when Biden was vice president, to the then-Ukrainian prime minister when Biden was calling for the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, an energy company paying Hunter Biden tens of thousands of dollars a month to sit on its board.

The committees had requested the documents nearly a month ago but the DOJ has declined to produce anything responsive, the committees reported.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” said Jordan.

“The Justice Department has closed its investigation into classified documents, but the Oversight Committee and Judiciary Committee’s investigation continues. Americans expect equal justice under the law and DOJ is allowing the Bidens to operate above it. Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” added Comer.

The double standard reference comes in light of the Biden administration’s decision to prosecute with a long list of charges President Donald Trump for documents he had from his presidency.

A key difference between the two cases is that Biden, as vice president, never had the authority to declassify documents in his possession. Trump did.

“Now that Special Counsel Hur’s investigation has concluded, the American people have a right to know whether President Biden retained classified documents related to his family’s overseas business dealings. While the Special Counsel may have declined to charge the president citing his memory problems, Congress and the American people do not consider ‘elderly and well meaning’ a defense for corruption,” said Rep. Jason Smith, the chief of the House Ways and Means committee.

“Given that President Biden rarely answers any questions in public, the American people deserve access to the recordings of the Special Counsel’s interview that led him to conclude that a jury would find Joe Biden ‘sympathetic’ given his age and ‘poor memory.'”

Their letter to Garland warned, “Congress’s authority to access information is broadest during an impeachment investigation.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
