Senator Chris Coons blasts the media frenzy over documents classified by Biden

RADDATZ: But how can you say that he takes secret material seriously when some of what was found has been in his house for more than ten years and he seemingly had no idea?

COONS: Well, the main point there, Martha, is that he had no idea. As you know, if you serve in the Senate or as Vice President, you literally get millions of documents going through your office week in and week out. And as you get older and the cases you deal with are more important and sometimes more secret, the volume gets bigger.

Democrats have a point when they claim that the American people will not care about documents found in Biden’s home. Would the American people really have cared about Trump’s classified documents if he hadn’t lied about having them, forced the DOJ to get a search warrant, and potentially committed a crime in the process?

If Trump would have said oops, I should have had these, please, the story would never have blown up.

The special counsel will likely conclude that Biden committed no crime, and the day that happens, the mainstream press of the company will never mention Biden and classified documents again.
