Flotsam and Jetsam - Garagegate Goes On

It should be no shock, we're still enmeshed in the scandal of Joe Biden having kept top-secret files at the end of the Obama administration, and stored them in unsecure locations for about six years, including his China funded think tank office, his personal Delaware residence and even the garage of that personal residence. Just who had a chance to rifle through the files? At least regarding the files at the Delaware residence, we may never know. Lucas Tomlinson@LucasFoxNews "BREAKING: White House says there are no visitor logs from Biden’s Wilmington home, Peter Doocy reports." At NRO, No Visitor Logs Exist for Biden Home Where Classified Docs Were Kept, White House Reveals. KT at Haut Hare, None exist? House Oversight Committee chair wants visitor logs from Biden's homes in Delaware.  Fox, Comer will 'continue to press' for info on Biden docs scandal after White House says no visitor logs in DE  Althouse, "The White House on Monday said it does not keep visitors logs for President Biden’s personal residence in Wilmington, Del...."  "WaPo reports. Just "a political headache." And Biden is better than Trump because Trump didn't keep White House visitors logs. Actually — I'm reading the NYT article too — it is just that Trump didn't release White House visitor logs." But there still may be some Secret Service records.

The New Neo features Mark Levine  with The first explanation of why the Biden classified documents story came out that makes sense to me. Well worth the 15 minutes.

VodkaPundit at PJ Media, TAX CHEAT? Joe Didn't Report the $50,000/Month in Rent Hunter Claimed He Paid. Da Caller, Hunter Biden Said He Paid Nearly $50,000 A Month To Live At House Where Classified Docs Were Discovered, Document Shows. Ace, Oh: Hunter Biden Was Paying Joe Biden Almost $50,000 Per Month In "Rent" to Live At His House
Hunter Biden wrote in an email that Joe Biden was taking half of his ill-gotten monies from foreign potentates.

But we never had a money trail showing money going into Joe Biden's accounts.

This seems to be how Hunter Biden moved the money he was collecting for Joe Biden, to Joe Biden, without disclosing it as a cut of the Burisma and China and Russia money -- he disguised it as exorbitant "rent" of $49,910 per month to live in... Wilmington, Delaware.
Jonathon Turley, All The President’s Men: Biden’s Use of Lawyers Raises Additional Concerns Over Handling Classified Material. Star News, Watchdogs Have Long Warned About Biden’s Pay-to-Play Penn Biden Center. At WaEx, Classified documents controversy raises questions about Biden's think tank. When you've lost Adam Schiff, Jack Phillips at ET, Rep. Schiff: National Security Possibly Jeopardized With Biden Documents. Natalia Mittelstadt at JTN writes Democrats slam Biden over classified documents after he used issue against Trump: 'Embarrassing.' "Rep. Adam Schiff calls for intelligence assessment after four discoveries of documents at BIden's home and office." NYPo, Democrats lash out over Biden classified document scandal: ‘An embarrassment.’ The Guardian whines There’s one winner in the Biden documents discovery: Donald Trump.

At the Intercept, a reminder, Biden Used Classified Documents Accusation Against Carter CIA Nominee. "As a senator, Joe Biden helped kill President Jimmy Carter’s CIA director nominee because he allegedly mishandled classified materials." Natalia Mittelstadt, Biden helped sink CIA nominee in 1970s with classified documents allegation, "Then-Sen. Joe Biden had previously said he would help the CIA director nominee through the nomination process."

At Fox, Biden White House 'looks like it's hiding something' with classified documents: Washington Post reporter, "Administration 'did not share the November discovery, it did not reveal the December discovery,' Carol Leonnig said." Insty, OOPS
WaPo Columnist Says the Quiet Part Out Loud About Biden’s Classified Doc Scandal. “Joe Biden’s classified document scandal continues to rage, with legions of liberal pundits, legal scholars, and congressional Democrats making the most predictable and irrelevant excuses for why an aging, dementia-ridden old man can keep state secrets unsecured in his garage. Biden got busted for having classified materials at multiple locations, including his residence in Wilmington, Delaware. Liberal America just got slapped in the face; the moral grandstanding that was pervasive and incessant after the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago last summer is now looking increasingly ridiculous. . . . The Left has no defense, so they’re going with their go-to line: it’s okay when we do it because we’re Democrats. That’s what Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart said on PBS Newshour, saying the Trump and Biden classified documents scandals are different because—in his eyes—they just are. Well, that settles it.”

NYT cited at Off the Press, What A Joke: NYTimes Says AIDES Accidentally Packed Docs. David Strom at Haut Hare thinks Chuck Todd isn't even trying to look like a journalist anymore. He hasn't for a long time. At Mediaite, CNN’s Don Lemon Whines Biden’s Classified Docs Defense Isn’t Working: ‘If You’re Explaining, You’re Losing’. Virginia Kruta at Da Wire hears Joe Rogan: Classified Doc SNAFU Is Proof Biden’s Own People Want Him Gone.

Spencer Brown at Town Hall wants you to WATCH: Biden's MLK Address Was a Complete Disaster. No thanks. Duane Patterson at Haut Hare VIP, If Joe Biden can lie about going to church while talking in church, what won’t he lie about? Ed Driscoll at Insty, TRUNALIMUNUMAPRZURE! Biden falsely claims he fought apartheid, was in civil rights movement, in gaffe-filled MLK Day speech. "Just another day for ol’ Super Gaffe-O-Matic ‘76"

Ace, Hunter Biden Asks Court to Stop His Baby-Mama From Changing His Child's Surname to "Biden
What a scumbag. Note that he is meanwhile attempting to get his child support payments reduced, claiming that his earning potential has declined. I mean, I guess that's true.

His stated reason for blocking his child from taking his name? He says he doesn't want her to have his bad name; he says the name is sullied. Again: True. But this is a bad faith argument.

At MSN, Writing Trump's 'Political Obituary Is A Fool's Errand,' Says His Former Campaign Manager. The College Fix reports DeSantis can ask colleges for DEI and CRT spending data, judge rules.

"Well, we all knew the train was heading here. Next stop: Zimbabwe." Beege Wellborn at Haut Hair, sees Youngkin goes ballistic on equity and what schools do to achieve it vice excellence

Dan Chaitin at Da Wire, Kevin McCarthy Shares ‘Best Way’ To Release January 6 Tapes

The “Twitter Files” serve as a model for how U.S. Capitol security footage from January 6, 2021, could be released to the public, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Sunday. McCarthy told Maria Bartiromo, host of Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” he is looking to release the tapes because of the “politicization” he believes has been fostered by former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the January 6 Committee.
