As the investigation of Biden’s potential mishandling of sensitive documents begins to unfold, the former CIA and National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who found asylum in Russia, suggested in a series of tweets that Biden has probably made off with more classified documents than many whistleblowers, stressing that, unlike them, he will probably get away with it.
When the news of the second batch of documents emerged, Snowden commented in a series of posts on Twitter about the recent controversy surrounding confidential Obama-era documents discovered at Biden’s properties and work spaces by his attorneys.
Comparing the situation with the case of Reality Winner who was sentenced to 5 years for just one document – a classified report about the Russiagate investigation – Snowden underscored that the president seems to have absconded with more classified documents than many whistleblowers, but his case will end up with no jail.
Snowden, known for leaking classified documents exposing Washington’s surveillance efforts that targeted American civilians, went on to point out that the real scandal, however, isn’t that the 46th POTUS had classified documents, as he noted, coming out of his socks, but that the DOJ found out about the scandal at least a week prior to the midterm elections and chose to suppress the story, conferring a partisan advantage.
To add insult to injury after the second batch of the confidential documents was found in Biden’s possession, Snowden ironically commented that even he has handled classified documents more securely and kept them encrypted if nothing else.
He concluded the tweet series commenting on White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s note that the Biden administration is confident that a thorough review will show that these documents were inadvertently misplaced, saying: “Man, I should have thought of that one.”
