It was only a matter of time and now Fox News confirmed it has happened: an ethics complaint has targeted Joe Biden for his lawyers’ involvement in his classified documents scandal.
“The American public will not tolerate a two-tiered system of justice – with well-connected insiders subject to a lower standard of scrutiny than the normal citizen,” explained Mike Chamberlain, chief of Protect the Public’s Trust, in a statement to Fox News Digital.
His organization’s complaint to the U.S. Office of Government Ethics cited the White House Counsel’s involvement in the documents scandal, which involves classified federal paperwork being found in an office Biden used to have, and in two locations in his home.
“President Biden promised the most ethical and transparent administration in history. If the White House compounded a scandal involving possible mishandling of classified documents by improperly using taxpayer resources for his personal benefit and putting White House attorneys in positions that created conflicts of interest, we could be witnessing a serious betrayal of the public’s already-plummeting trust,” Chamberlain told Fox.
Chamberlain noted, “It also creates the spectre of possible obstruction of a congressional investigation, depending on the legal basis for the intervention and any future privileges claimed by the White House on this escalating scandal.”
