Biden & University Are Concealing Documents That Could Hurt His Campaign
There are thousands of documents having to do with the 40-year career of Joe Biden while he was in the Senate. Those documents supposedly fill 1,875 boxes and 415 gigabytes of data were scheduled to be released on December 31, 2019. Biden’s time in Congress occurred between 1973 through 2009 and according to an agreement the former vice president made with the University of Delaware in 2011 (when Biden donated the papers) the information was supposed to be released on New Year’s Eve.
It has now been discovered that the agreement was changed on April 24th, which just so happened to be the day before Biden announced his 2020 campaign. The college announced that they will not release the documents until two years after Biden retires from public life, meaning there is no official date when the documents will be released.
Among those documents are “committee reports, drafts of legislation,” personal correspondence between Biden and other Democrats. Many believe that a large amount of those records are going to be controversial especially the work Biden did in the early years working with southern segregationists opposed to public school integration.
Just how damaging could they be you might ask?
Biden had to play defense in June 2019 when his work with southern segregationists came up. Biden praised the “civility” of two of his allies that were segregationists Senator James Eastland (D-MS) and Herman Talmadge (D-GA).
“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland,” the former vice president told donors at a fundraiser in New York at the time. “He never called me boy, he always called me son.”
“Well guess what?” Biden continued. “At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today you look at the other side and you’re the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don’t talk to each other anymore.”
If the late Senator is so proud of his work than why is he concealing these documents with the help of the University of Delaware. The former vice president continues to claim that he is more moral than the President, prove it and release the documents.
