  • Former President Donald Trump said Thursday the revelation that Joe Biden kept classified documents from his vice presidency at a private think tank office “totally changes” the Justice Department investigation prompted by the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, suggesting politics may have delayed the public revelation of the current president’s new legal and political predicament.
  • Biden’s lawyers notified the government Nov. 2 about the discovery of the classified-marked documents at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, but the public wasn’t alerted until this week.
  • “I think they knew long before Nov. 2,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast. “I think he knew probably right from the beginning, and I think a lot of it had to do with Ukraine, because that was the papers he kept. And no, I think they knew about this for a long time and they didn’t do anything about it.”
