'You Can't Have Two Sets of Rules': DeSantis Knocks Biden Over Classified Documents

Share

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is reacting to the investigation into President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents.

During an event on Wednesday, a reporter asked the governor for his thoughts on what is “going on with President Biden.”

“So the question’s about Biden’s documents,” DeSantis began. “And um … you know, look, he said that it was incredibly reckless to have classified [documents], he said all this stuff, you know, on ’60 Minutes.'”

He continued, “And, you know, now you find out he had them stashed behind his Corvette at his house that Hunter had access to — which is definitely a security risk in my book.”

“And so I think it just shows you what some of these folks do. They had all this stuff to say, now they’re acting like this is something like it’s not a big deal. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. You can’t have two different sets of rules based on your political party,” he added.

Biden is facing a special counsel investigation into his handling of classified documents.

On Jan. 9, it was reported a U.S. attorney was reviewing roughly 10 classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C. Those documents were discovered in November before the midterm election.

Another batch of documents was found in the garage of the president’s Wilmington, Delaware, home. Those documents were discovered on Dec. 20, 2022.

And on Saturday, White House lawyer Richard Sauber revealed six documents with classified markings were found in the president’s private library of his Wilmington home. One was found on Wednesday, and five more were discovered on Thursday.

The investigation into Biden comes months after he criticized former President Donald Trump for his handling of classified documents.

In August, the FBI executed a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and recovered more than 300 classified documents.

“How anyone could be that irresponsible. And I thought, ‘What data was in there that may compromise sources and methods?’ By that, I mean names of people who helped,” Biden told CBS News’ “60 Minutes” about his reaction to Trump’s handling of classified documents.

He added it was “just totally irresponsible.”

In August, DeSantis also reacted to the Mar-a-Lago search as he tweeted, “The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”

DeSantis has been seen as a potential 2024 presidential candidate. And several early polls have shown him beating Biden in a head-to-head matchup.
