Biden’s Not the First Democrat to Steal Classified Documents – Clinton Lackey Sandy Berger Was Convicted of Stealing Docs in His Socks
The Democrat saga of stolen classified documents is not new. Joe Biden isn’t the first to get caught. Clinton lackey Sandy Berger was convicted of stealing docs in his socks.
Joe Biden isn’t the first corrupt politician to get caught stealing classified documents from the government. And yes, he did steal the documents according to attorney Mike Davis who worked under Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and US Senator Grassley from Iowa.
But Biden isn’t the first corrupt person in the White House to do so.
President Clinton’s former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger was convicted after getting caught stealing classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.
Berger barely got a slap on the wrist for stealing and destroying documents.
CNN reported on Berger’s conviction in 2005.
Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.
Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled.
“I deeply regret the actions that I took at the National Archives two years ago, and I accept the judgment of the court,” Berger said outside the courthouse after his sentencing.
“I’m glad that the 9/11 commission has made clear that it received all the documents that it sought, all the documents that it needed, and I’m pleased to finally have this matter resolved,” he added.
Berger reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors in April to avoid a jail sentence.
At that time, he said the reason he took the documents was so he could prepare himself and others to assist the 9/11 commission, which investigated the circumstances surrounding the 2001 terrorist attacks and published a report of its findings last year.
The documents taken by Berger dealt with the terror threats during the 2000 millennium celebration, according to parties in the case.
According to the charges, Berger — between September 2 and October 2, 2003 — “knowingly removed classified documents from the National Archives and Records Administration and stored and retained such documents at places,” such as his private Washington office.
Berger’s associates admit he took five copies of an after-action report detailing the 2000 millennium terror plot from the Archives. The aides say Berger returned to his office, discovered that three of the copies appeared to be duplicates and cut them up with scissors.
The revelations were a dramatic change from Berger’s claim last year that he had made an “honest mistake” and either misplaced or unintentionally threw the documents away.
It was rumored that Berger was on a mission to destroy documents that would show that the Clinton Administration knew about Bin Laden and al Qaeda or worse.
Berger’s role was to locate the documents and destroy them to protect the Clintons. Berger was yet another individual who broke the law to protect the corrupt Clintons.
Who only knows how many classified and top secret documents Biden has taken and destroyed?
