WASHINGTON, DC—In response to revelations that President Joe Biden has been willfully retaining classified documents, federal prosecutors have announced plans to indict former President Donald Trump once again.
The decision to pursue charges against Trump comes after reports surfaced indicating that Biden, in a blatant violation of federal law, has been holding onto sensitive and classified information since assuming office. The documents in question reportedly contain highly classified intelligence briefings, diplomatic cables, and national security memos.
Legal experts have pointed out the irony of the situation, noting that while Trump faced impeachment twice for alleged wrongdoing during his presidency, Biden appears to be getting a free pass despite clear evidence of misconduct.
“It’s a classic case of double standards,” remarked constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz in an interview with CNN. “While Trump was subjected to relentless scrutiny and investigations, Biden is being given a free pass for behavior that is arguably far more serious.”
The revelation has sent shockwaves through Washington, with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle calling for accountability and transparency.
“This is an outrageous abuse of power,” declared Senator Lindsey Graham in a fiery speech on the Senate floor. “If the Biden administration thinks they can get away with flouting the law and endangering national security, well, we’re going to write several strongly-worded letters about that!”
Democrats, meanwhile, have been quick to downplay the significance of Biden’s actions, insisting that the president has the authority to retain classified documents for national security purposes.
“President Biden is simply exercising his constitutional authority to protect the American people,” argued House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a statement released by her office. “Any attempt to hold him accountable for his actions is nothing more than a partisan witch hunt.”
Despite the pushback from Democrats, legal experts predict that the Biden administration could face serious legal consequences if the Justice Department moves forward with indictments.
“If the evidence shows that Biden knowingly violated federal law by retaining classified documents, he could be facing charges of mishandling classified information and obstruction of justice,” explained former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara in an interview with MSNBC. “The stakes are incredibly high, and the American people deserve answers.”
