On leaving the Oval Office, President Donald Trump took thousands of government documents, some classified, to his Mar-a-Lago home/resort/hotel.  After a year-and-a-half of lies, stonewalling and finally a search warrant, from the basement to his office, Justice Department investigators recovered Trump’s trove.

Joe Biden’s attorneys, on November 2, 2022, reported finding “about” 10 classified documents in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center where the then-vice president occasionally worked.  Biden aids, on January 22, 2023, reported finding additional documents at Biden’s Delaware home.  These discoveries were duly reported, and the documents forwarded to the National Archives.

Contrasting Joe Biden’s mishandling with Donald Trump’s theft of government documents is analogous to contrasting Alec Baldwin’s tragically accidental shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins with Payton S. Gendron’s methodically executing a Tops market surety guard and nine patrons, and wounding three.

It’s about intent!  Did vice president, now president, Joe Biden intend to steal government documents?  Did former President Donald J. Trump intend to steal government documents?
