Biden Admin Accused of Destroying Evidence in Case That Could Impact Trump

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has been hit with a lawsuit that accuses federal officials of destroying evidence.

A nonprofit legal organization filed a lawsuit against the Biden admin on Wednesday.

The lawsuit alleges that the Biden admin deleted federal employees’ emails in violation of existing statutes.

The case could have a significant impact on President Donald Trump who is being persecuted by allegations from federal agencies that he allegedly mishandled records.

The feds routinely have been destroying public records that are supposed to be preserved.

However, no one is ever prosecuted except Trump, according to the new lawsuit.

“You have maybe tens of thousands of government records every year that are destroyed without authority,” explained Dan Epstein, an official with the America First Legal team that sued.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, he continued:

“But when it comes to Donald Trump, he gets prosecuted.

“Everyone else who doesn’t have to stand for election gets a free pass.”

The lawsuit takes aim at Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

The suit also names Biden’s HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra.

The charge is that the government routinely deletes federal employees’ emails in violation of the law.

The complaint explains federal law requires agencies to “make and preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency and designed to furnish the information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the government and of persons directly affected by the agency’s activities.”

The complaint, in U.S. District Court in Washington, charges that the government is in violation of its own Federal Records Act.

“If the National Archives decides not to use the legal authorities it has regarding federal records, it certainly shouldn’t make up legal authority that it doesn’t have when it comes to presidential records,” Epstein explained.

“We expect our government to act in a transparent and accountable way and exercise equanimity when it decides to investigate certain allegations.

“We clearly haven’t seen that in this case.”

The implications of the case, as its evidence unfolds, could be dramatic for Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Smith accuses Trump of violating the law for having his presidential papers, including classified material he had the authority to declassify, in his home, just as other presidents have done.

Additionally, Biden was also confirmed to have willfully taken classified papers from his vice presidency.

However, Biden did not hold authority to declassify those documents.

He stored them in his home, office, and even unprotected garage.

The special counsel in Biden’s case recommended against charging the president because of his diminished capacities.

Epstein charged that the federal government has one standard for Trump and another for everyone else.

He noted that hundreds of thousands of records are deleted annually.

The lawsuit stems from a 2023 records request from the legal team under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (DCD) references to “teacher-led indoctrination of children with radical gender ideology.”

The bureaucracy responded that records weren’t available because they were deleted 30 days after an employee leaves a position.

The NARA then said it assigns to individual workers the responsibility of deciding if records should be kept.

But that, the AFL explained, is “patently inconsistent with the law.”
