Fact Check Biden’s Statements on Classified Information

Biden  In a recent talk, President Joe Biden talked about how he handled secret information before he became president. He didn’t agree with claims that he had a bad memory, but some of the things he said weren’t true, according to a report by special counsel Robert Hur. Let’s look at what he said and what the report found.

Where He Kept Secret Papers

Biden wanted to show how he was different from former President Donald Trump, who’s in trouble for keeping secret documents. Biden said, “All the stuff that was in my home was in filing cabinets that were either locked or able to be locked.”

But this isn’t completely true. The report says some secret papers were in locked cabinets in Biden’s home in Delaware, but others were in a damaged box in his garage. The report even has a picture of the box! Investigators couldn’t say for sure if these papers were once in a filing cabinet. Also, some of Biden’s old notes from his time as vice president were found in unlocked drawers around his house. Hur, the special counsel, said Biden should’ve known that keeping secret notes in unlocked places wasn’t allowed.

What This Means

Biden’s wrong statements about where he kept secret papers raise concerns. It’s important for leaders to follow rules about keeping secret information safe. Finding out that some papers weren’t stored securely shows why these rules are so important. Even though Biden won’t be charged for this, it’s still something people should pay attention to. People deserve honesty and carefulness from leaders, especially about things like national security.

What We Can Learn

Biden’s politics handling of secret papers reminds us of how important it is to keep secret information safe, no matter who we are. We have to be very careful with these kinds of documents. To make sure they’re safe, we need to follow the rules and keep them in secure places. If there’s ever a problem, we should tell someone right away.

As we keep looking into what happened, it’s up to leaders to show that they’re being honest and following the rules. Keeping secret information safe is a big part of making sure our country is safe. We need to trust that our leaders are doing the right thing.

In short, Biden‘s words about how he kept secret papers don’t match up with what the report found. This shows why it’s so important to follow rules and keep secret information safe. We need leaders we can trust to do the right thing, especially when it comes to keeping our country safe.
