Turn on the news any time of any day lately, and you’ll probably hear about Biden’s classified documents debacle. One thing that seems universal among the networks is the obvious attempt to carry water for the President.
But also universal is the ham-handed, ridiculous attempts by Biden lackeys to justify what was just a month ago the highest treason.
Watching the White House press briefings the last week has been painful as know-nothing Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre repeatedly made a fool of herself fielding questions from the press, all while claiming to be ‘forthcoming’ with information.
So, in what seemed to be an attempt to lighten the scrutiny on Ms. Jean Pierre, the White House sent out a relatively no-name lackey to not answer questions from the press.
The Amateur Hour response from the White House might even be more alarming than Biden’s apparent penchant for walking off with classified documents.
So let’s look at what the White House is or isn’t saying, for that matter.

Senior advisor to the White House counsel’s office, Ian Sams, made the rounds on the major news outlets to attempt to fool the public into believing they are receiving answers to the most pressing questions related to the President’s mishandling of classified documents.
The clip making the rounds on Twitter comes from a question posed by MSNBC:
“Can you give us a sense of how many classified documents we are now talking about in total across all three locations?”
His response was sheer deflecting gold:
“Sure, it’s a good question and actually the answer to it is a little bit complicated…”
See how he affirmed that he could give us a sense, but he never actually does. Instead, he insultingly lets the reporter know that her question was indeed good but that we are all too simple-minded to grasp the answer, so we should chill out and let the process do its thing.

Mr. Sams gives the same excuse that Ms. Jean Pierre has been offering as to why we aren’t getting answers:
“I understand that there is tension between protecting and safeguarding the integrity of an ongoing investigation with providing information publicly.”
Except there isn’t tension, the Department of Justice hasn’t put any restrictions on what the White House can or can’t say about the investigation.
NBC News legal contributor Andrew Weissmann explains:
“There is nothing about a DOJ investigation that legally prevents someone under investigation from speaking publicly.”
So a question remains unanswered: why isn’t the White House answering these relatively simple questions? Let’s see what Mr. Sams said about some hot-button topics on people’s minds.

It’s hard not to be frustrated when you look at the timeline of events when the White House likes to claim that they’ve been completely transparent with the American people. The first documents were found on November 2nd. However, the public was only made aware of the discovery well after the midterm elections.
If you believe any Republican would have gotten the same protection, I have a bridge to sell you in Vietnam.
When asked why the White House waited so long to tell the public, Mr. Sams explained:
“We want to make sure that you all and the public are served with complete information to the best of our ability as part of this ongoing inquiry.”
Not telling us about the discovery was your way of ensuring we had complete information? Ah, I see; withholding information is providing information; thanks for that word salad, you’d make a great Minister of Truth.
When asked why President Biden’s personal lawyers were cleaning out the Washington office where the first batch of documents was found, Mr. Sams said rather matter-of-factly:
“I think it’s important to note you know, this is the President of the United States, and these are personal materials. And, you know, his trusted aides were doing the work of cleaning out the office and so I think that that’s self-explanatory.”
REMEMBER, Biden was of sound mind during this 36 years!
“Some of these papers were found that are related to Biden as VP & even going back to his a 36 years in the United States Senate

Totally self-explanatory. If you are an elite member of society and, in particular, a member of the Democratic Party, the rules and the law of the land don’t really apply to you because you’re super important.
Way more important than those pesky peasants who lost their jobs and clearances for mishandling classified information, are serving jail time, are living in exile, or had their homes raided by the FBI.

You can’t just pick on Mr. Sams for giving embarrassing non-answers; at least his were at least somewhat better crafted than what we’d seen prior.
Poor Karine Jean-Pierre is under fire for stating that “the search is complete” on January 12th, only to have reports come out after that more searching was done and more documents were uncovered …from when the President was in the Senate.
Whoops. President Biden recently said of his document mishandling:
“I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets.”
Not a one? You have at least one; I’d argue hiring Karine Jean-Pierre as your press secretary should be on the regret list.
Or perhaps this gem from September when you told “60 Minutes” what your thoughts were after the Mar-a-Lago raid:
“How could anyone be that irresponsible?”
Pathetic posturing – @IanSams knows Biden’s problems are worse than they would be if he hadn’t seized and pounced all over Trump’s classified documents.

I don’t know, Joe, how could anyone be that irresponsible?
Oh wait, your explanation of what happened in your case was that:
“We found a handful of documents were filed in the wrong place.”
That’s an understatement; they were filed in your garage, which by the way, you lose your man card alone for having such a disorganized garage in the first place. My garage in my townhome looks more put together than that mess.

Will we ever know what is in these documents, how many there were, and if they were used for a specific personal or political purpose by the President?
My gut tells me this information will be buried in the same place the Nord Stream Pipeline investigation, DOD Diversity Chief probe, and those last few JFK assassination documents are stored.
Just take a peek at how the White House is non-answering questions now.
As one White House reporter told Fox News Digital regarding Karine Jean Pierre’s performance as of late:
“It’s very insulting to reporters especially when she repeatedly says she has answered a question when she clearly has not.”
Case in point: the heated exchange between her and reporter Jon Decker who said she provided him a “non-answer”:
“It’s your opinion. It’s your opinion. That is your opinion.”
To which he expertly responded:
“It’s a fact.”
But in our new world, facts are opinions, and narrative is fact.
