(TheLibertyRevolution.Com)- Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said on Friday that he will not release documents that reveal information about his career in the Senate while running for office, despite having previously called for President Donald Trump to release his tax returns.
During an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Biden said that the papers reflecting his Senate career won’t be released while he is seeking public office because they could be used against him.
That’s the reason why we need to see them, Joe!
Biden made the comments in a wider discussion about allegations made about him by a former Senate staffer. Tara Reade alleges that in 1993, Biden sexually assaulted her in a corridor, kissing, touching, and even penetrating her without her consent. Reade filed a police report in Washington, D.C., but Biden has (until recently) refused to comment on the allegations.
Host Mika Brzezinski asked Biden about why he was refusing to open sealed records about his senate career that have been given to the University of Delaware. The topic is relevant as Biden says there are no records that suggest he is a sexual predator.
“The first question, about the University of Delaware records,” Brzezinski said. “Do you agree with the reporting that those records were supposed to be revealed to the public and then they were resealed for a longer time until, quote, after you leave public life. And if you agree with that, if that’s what happened, why did that happen?”
Biden responded by saying the files could be taken out of context.
“The fact is, that there’s are a lot of things – speeches I’ve made, positions I’ve taken, interviews that I did overseas with people, all of those things relating to my job. And the idea that they would all be made public, and the fact while I was running for public office, they could really be taken out of context.”
That doesn’t sound good, does it?
When pressed on the issue, specifically how the records should have already been made public but have been resealed, Biden said it was justified because it has “a lot of confidential personal conversation” that he had with the president.
So if Joe Biden things personal conservations and information about his very public career shouldn’t be published while he’s running for public office, why does he think President Trump should release his personal tax returns?
Perhaps there are things in there that could be taken out of context, too, Joe!
