Former Director Of National Intelligence: ‘The Disparity In The Treatment’ Of Trump Vs Biden ‘Is Remarkable’

During a Fox News interview over the weekend, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe explained how there has been a double standard in the treatment of Democrat President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump in regard to classified materials discovered in their possession. 

Following the discovery of numerous batches of classified documents in Biden’s possession at his Delaware home and his office in the Biden Penn Center in Washington, Democrats scrambled to defend Biden and explain the “differences” from Trump’s handling of classified material. 

For example, Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson (GA) attempted to argue that Trump’s handling of classified materials is an “open-and-shut case,” but that it’s “too early to reach any conclusions” about the way Biden handled classified documents.

“Looking at the disparity in the treatment between President Biden and former President Trump … it’s remarkable,” Ratcliffe said. “And … you want to talk about dirty little secrets … I think that what we saw was an unprecedented raid of the former president (Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida on Aug. 8) as a way of targeting a political opponent. I think that was intended to lead to an unprecedented prosecution that is now here to hit a roadblock, if you will, named Joe Biden.”

“I don’t think that the Biden Department of Justice ever thought they’d be sitting around saying, ‘Well, how are we possibly going to prosecute former President Trump for conduct that President Biden has so clearly committed at a level that is so more egregious and with such a greater frequency?’ And I think that’s why they are in the mess that they are,” he continued.
