The National Archives have failed to meet the House Oversight Committee’s deadline to comply and produce the requested documents related to President Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal, according to the spokesperson for the committee.

On January 10, the Oversight Committee demanded that the National Archives provide them with the records detailing interactions between Biden’s personal attorneys — who conducted the initial searches for classified documents in Biden’s old office and his Wilmington, Delaware residence — and the Department of Justice, who conducted the final search of Biden’s home. The deadline for the Archives to hand over the documents was January 24.

“The National Archives has not produced the requested documents to the Committee at this time,” the committee spokesperson told reporters on Tuesday. “Chairman Comer’s request still stands and anticipates moving forward with a transcribed interview with NARA’s general counsel soon.”

At least three reports from the mainstream media admitted that Biden’s personal attorneys had worked with the DOJ to hide the scandal from the American people. The Biden administration likely did not even plan to tell the public about the scandal at all, until the story was leaked to the press on January 9 — which is more than two months after the first batch of classified documents was found in the president’s old office at the Penn-Biden Center in Washington, D.C., by Biden’s personal attorneys on November 2.

A small group of White House officials and DOJ officials were the only ones who were aware of Biden’s scandal before it became public, which had led White House officials to become suspicious of how the story was leaked to the press, according to the New York Times.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Merrick Garland claimed on Monday that the DOJ had not applied a double standard of justice, despite their efforts to hide the scandal — as well as the disparity between their reaction to Biden’s mishandling of classified documents compared to the controversial FBI raid of former President Donald Trump for possessing classified documents in his Mar-a-Lago home behind a locked door and in a building protected by the Secret Service.

“We do not have different rules for Democrats or Republicans, different rules for the powerful or the powerless, different rules for the rich and for the poor, we apply the facts, and the law in each case in a neutral, non-partisan manner,” the attorney general claimed.
