Third Batch of Classified Biden Documents Found in Sandy Berger’s Pants

 

After the discovery of two tranches of classified documents in different locations belonging to President Biden, a third batch of such documents has been found stuffed down the pants of former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger.

Berger, former president Clinton’s National Security Advisor, was convicted in 2005 for removing classified documents from the National Archives by stuffing them down his pants. Berger subsequently lied to investigators when questioned about the removal of the documents but served no jail time for either crime because Washington deemed him kind of a big deal.

President George W. Bush’s Attorney General Alberto Gonzales saw Berger for what he was – a fellow swamp creature – and so the Justice Department initially said Berger only stole copies of classified documents and not originals. It took the House Government Reform Committee to reveal that an unsupervised Berger had been given access to classified files of original, uncopied, and uninventoried documents on terrorism. Nancy Kegan Smith – who was the director of the presidential documents staff at the National Archives at the time – acknowledged that she had granted Berger access to the original materials in her office.

President Barack Obama released the following statement upon learning of Berger’s death:

With his trademark passion, wisdom and good humor,he is remembered fondly within the ranks of the national Security Council, where those he mentored carry on his work. 

Never change, Washington.

    The real stink of the Berger case was that by stealing and destroying originals, he cleaned up the only record of Bill Clinton’s margin notes to accompany his decisions and questions regarding the docs in question.  That’s why the ORIGINALS are preserved.

    If Sandy Berger’s Pants isn’t already a band name, it should be.

    The fact that the legacy media is covering this story is a clear indication that the Dems are hoping to move on from Biden in ’24.  The Revolution will indeed eat itself, Robespierre.

    Can’t be a revolution since they already control the institutions. This is more like how they handled RBG- an icon until it was more convenient to get rid of her-luckily for us she didn’t listen & refused to retire.

    Amazing – I didn’t know that. Hard to believe anybody associated with the Clintons would be so slimy.
