Biden’s HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL papers, which were in his office for many years, were in any way similar to the Secret Service guarded, & otherwise very secure, Mar-a-Lago papers. Biden was not then President, had no power to declassify, & came under the very tough Federal Records Act. I come under the much more generous Presidential Records Act, was having productive discussions with Radical Left NARA, & did everything right. A giant Scam”

CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS/JOE BIDEN: “The revelation that classified materials were discovered at think tank offices formerly used by President Joe Biden, as well as at the president’s Delaware home, has prompted questions on how the circumstances compare with the seizure last year of hundreds of documents marked as classified from Mar-a-Lago, the Florida residence of former President Donald Trump…

It’s unclear precisely how many classified materials have been obtained from Biden’s office and home. Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, said Monday that “a small number of documents with classified markings” were discovered on Nov. 2, 2022, in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, a think tank in Washington, as Biden’s personal attorneys were clearing out the offices…

Roughly 300 documents with classification markings — including some at the top secret level — have been recovered from Trump since he left office in January 2021.”

Smith is known as ‘an unfair Savage,’ & is best friends with the craziest Trump haters, including Lisa Monaco who runs ‘Injustice.’ The Boxes Scam is a HOAX…

For seven years, from the day I came down the escalator in Trump Tower, the Democrat Party has WEAPONIZED the ‘Legal’ System, using City, State, and Federal Law Enforcement against me and the Republican Party as though they were a Private Protection Agency.

His conflicts, unfairness, and mental state of derangement make him totally unfit for the job of ‘getting Trump.’ Go after Biden and the Biden Crime Family instead.
