Biden’s violations of the Espionage Act look worse by the day

Joe Biden violated the Espionage Act. Of that there is no question. He was not indicted, not for lack of evidence but because the Special Counsel felt he would present himself as a doddering forgetful old man. New information shows just how badly Biden compromised the US.

Yesterday Paul Sperry reported

FBI agents caught Joe Biden illegally hoarding a dozen+ notebooks containing classified info, inclg:

— “US intelligence sources, methods & capabilities”

— “Activities of foreign intelligence services”

— “US military programs & capabilities”

— “Foreign military programs”

Exactly the kind of things the Chinese Communist Party would find interesting.

These documents were moved to the Penn Biden Center at the U of Pennsylvania by Biden aide Kathy Chung.  As usual, Biden refused to accept any responsibility for the handling of those documents:

At a press conference hastily assembled after the report’s release, Biden said he assumed his aides had shipped “all” the documents to the National Archives in College Park, Md. “I wish I had paid more attention to how the documents were being moved and where,” he said. “I thought they were being moved to the Archives. I thought all of it was being moved [there].”

The doddering old man was unconcerned about the handling of highly classified information.

Enter the mysterious Kathy Chung

Chung, an old friend of Hunter Biden, began working for Joe Biden in 2012 when he was vice president. She told investigators she oversaw the transfer of the contents of Biden’s file cabinets and desk drawers into 15 boxes when he moved out of the West Wing in January 2017. While other office material did go to the National Archives, Hur rebuked Biden for keeping more than 600 pages of classified information – including military secrets and intelligence sources and methods – in unlocked and unauthorized containers at multiple locations, including a tattered box in the garage of Biden’s Delaware home. The stash included information marked “top secret” involving Iran, China, Afghanistan, and Ukraine. Some of the secrets are compartmented by codewords and can only be stored and read in a secure facility known as a SCIF.

The Biden documents that Chung herself packed, unpacked, and repacked “are the most highly classified, sensitive and compartmented materials recovered during our investigation,” Hur wrote.

SC Hur let her off the hook, despite her history of mishandling classified information:

This is not the first time Chung has been found to have mishandled sensitive government documents. In the late 1990s, when she worked with Hunter Biden at the Commerce Department as an administrator, she and her boss Melissa Moss were cited by a federal judge for failing to turn over documents sought in a Freedom of Information Act case, as RealClearInvestigations first reported. They were accused of withholding and even destroying key documents in a search that the judge ruled “grossly inadequate” and “unlawful.”

The documents were moved several times under lax security

The record shows that Chung personally dispersed the sensitive material to at least three locations in the years when Biden was out of office, 2017-2021 – including two temporary office sites before they were “discovered” in 2022 at the Penn Biden Center in D.C. in an unlocked office frequented by visitors.

They were brought to the Penn Biden Center and stored with virtually no security at all. Anyone was free to access them.

“Mr. Biden’s office did not lock,” Hur noted in his report, “and the adjoining outer office where Mr. Biden’s executive assistant maintained his files was always accessible through Mr. Biden’s office.” In a footnote, Hur added that “the Vice President’s office could only be locked from the inside using a panic button.”

Office security got even more “relaxed” in early 2019, Hur revealed, when visitors to the Penn Biden Center no longer needed a key fob or an escort to access the sixth floor of the building. Biden’s office, filled with secret government documents including high-level memos on China, was left virtually open to the public – including University of Pennsylvania students who took classes at the center and were allowed to work in the office space during the day.

Chung said that she was trained to recognize classified materials but somehow was unable to discern the nature of these documents

FBI agents asked Chung how she could miss so many classified documents in the files she repeatedly handled. She told them she was trained to identify classified documents by the orange or red coversheets that were “usually always” included with such papers. And the classified documents that were recovered did not have such covers, she said, and were mixed in with unclassified materials, so they did not jump out at her.

But the classified Ukraine materials were contained in an envelope marked “EYES ONLY,” as were classified CIA materials she handled concerning the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Still, the envelopes were not technically marked classified, she told the investigators; and besides, she never saw the “EYES ONLY” stamps while packing, unpacking, and repacking the envelopes.

Chung’s mishandling of classified information was rewarded. Or perhaps her silence was.

After the election, Biden appointed Chung to a top Pentagon position serving as assistant to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, where she has access to the nation’s most sensitive military secrets.

Hur also went to great lengths to protect her identity in his 388-page report. He refers to her only as “Executive Assistant” and her face is deliberately blurred through pixilation in a photo he published of her sitting in front of a file cabinet in her West Wing office, where she stored Biden’s secret papers.

The Penn Biden Center opened in February 2018. Chinese money began pouring in.

The Ivy League college raked in a total of $54.6 million from 2014 through June 2019 in donations from China, including $23.1 million in anonymous gifts starting in 2016, according to public records.

Most of the anonymous donations came after the university announced in February 2017 that it would create the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. Joe Biden, whose term as vice president had just ended, was to lead the center and was also named a professor at the university.

The Ivy League university received $15.8 million in anonymous Chinese gifts that year, including one eye-popping $14.5 million donation in May 2018, records show.

Contrary to common commentary, SC Hur bent over backwards to relieve Biden and Chung of any guilt.

There’s no way to know who accessed the classified documents as the Penn Biden Center deleted the visitor logs.

Hur couldn’t determine who had access to Biden’s unsecured classified docs or whether they passed thru foreign hands b/c the Penn Biden Center’s security deleted all the visitor logs, 2017-2021: “We cannot account for all visitors to the Center”

Summary

  • Penn Biden Center established
  • Money pours in from China
  • Biden leaves documents accessible to anyone

If he left the classified documents accessible for China he’s guilty of espionage. If he forgot about them, he’s not fit to be President.

Any questions?

Seems he got the idea of how to secure our border from how he handled the classified documents he stole.

Special Counsel unable to track Penn Biden Center visitors due to deleted logs. Over 600 pages of classified documents found in unsecured locations by Biden. No charges filed against Biden or his aides despite security lapses.

And morons like greg think the Mar A Lago documents were worse than Joey’s. We are losing more of this country day by day. November can not get here soon enough.

Jan 20 2025, Dirty bastards can do alot of damage in almost 3 months.
Commies have turned #Venezuela into such a s__th*le that even criminal gangs are leaving — making *Venezuela* safer. Guess where they are arriving from.

Seems shit always gets deleted around investigations into Democrat corruption and fraud.

If a doddering forgetful old man could not stand trial for criminal actions that are not in dispute, what the hell is he doing in his present capacity? I think we all know he is just window dressing for the evil doers behind the scene.
Theses collective scumbags will need to be prosecuted for their crimes, convicted and incarcerated for life.
These collective scumbags are the enemy of America.

I think we all know he is just window dressing.
