Judicial Watch along with The Daily Caller News Foundation appealed to the Supreme Court of Delaware to reverse a judgment blocking a state Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) governing President Joe Biden’s senatorial records, according to Judicial Watch. If the Supreme Court reverses course, thousands of previously unseen Biden documents could be released to the public – and apparently, Biden has something to hide.
The two groups made their joint appeal early in February and according to their Facebook post those records are being physically held at the University of Delaware, but access is not being allowed to the public.
What is Biden hiding?
“Biden’s papers include more than 1,850 boxes of archival records from his senate career,” Judicial Watch said in their post, going on to explain that the appeal comes after a Delaware Attorney General’s opinion denied access to the records.
During their request for the documents, Judicial Watch pointed out that “archival storage space and professional staff members’ time are things of value that it can be inferred are paid for with public funds.”
“We have no idea why the University of Delaware is hiding these materials that the public should have every right to see and we are grateful for Judicial Watch and our local council for pushing this case hard,” said Daily Caller News Foundation President Neil Patel.
According to The Daily Caller’s report on the case, the University said in 2012 after it first received Biden’s archival records that it would make the library “available to the public two years after Biden’s last day in elected public office.”
Questions about why did the records of a lifelong public servant become suddenly less safe for public consumption after the servant in question became the leader of the free world in what was a hotly contested election?
Possibly, more importantly, is the question of why Democrats cried foul for four years about private tax records of former President Donald Trump, but the sealed records of an entire lifetime of service in public office seem not worthy of a news story on a major television news network.
