Secret Service Is Selling Us a Bunch of Malarkey When It Comes to Joe Biden’s Visitors – Opinion

Joe Biden spends a lot time in his office in Wilmington, Delaware or at his Rehoboth Beach beach home. He’s spent about one-quarter of his first year in office in Delaware.

The New York Post claims that it asked for one-year of visitor log records, but the Secret Service denies that any such records exist. Secret Service Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) officer Kevin Tyrrell claimed that “[t]he Secret Service FOIA Office searched all Program Offices that were likely to contain potentially responsive records, and no records were located.”

Now, that’s just a lie, because the Secret Service has to check out anyone who gets close to Biden. Are they saying that they’re not doing the jobs that they’re sworn to do? Or that they’re just destroying any records and checks they’re making of people?

Tom Fitton, president of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which also has sued for presidential visitor logs, accused the Secret Service of playing a “shell game” — potentially claiming that the Delaware logs belong to the White House rather than the protective agency.

“Obviously the Secret Service knows and tracks who is visiting President Biden at his homes in Delaware and they are playing a shell game with the public to keep that information secret,” Fitton said.

They lie to us, so why is that? Who are they visiting? Since they’re not willing to tell us and they’re willing even to lie to us, we have to suppose something is going on here that they want to hide.

If doctors are visiting and dealing with any of Joe Biden’s appreciable issues, we’re not being told. If Joe Biden is meeting with foreign visitors — as he did when he was vice president, meeting with some of his son’s business associates — we’re not being told. He’s done official business in Delaware, for example, meeting with some Democrats, but unless we get a random news report, we’re not even being told about that.

Given the current situation, with two individuals who may have had connections to Iran or Pakistan, trying to infiltrate Secret Service, and get near to agents, officers, and protective details Jill and Joe Biden’s, transparency about who gets next to Joe Biden might be even more crucial than ever. This infiltration was allowed to take place because there had been a serious failure.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been pressed on the issue in the past last year, and she just blew everyone off, saying Biden wasn’t going to release such information.

“Well, the president goes to Delaware because it’s his home. It’s also where his son and his former wife are buried. And it’s a place that is obviously close to his heart,” Psaki said at a January press briefing. “A lot of presidents go visit their home when they are president. We also have gone a step further than the prior administration in many administrations in releasing visitor logs of people who visit the White House and will continue to do that.”

What’s annoying here is that they take us for fools. Not only trying to put one over on us but then, being such liars about it all and that we don’t have the right to know, even given all the questions about Joe Biden. It’s our money — we’re paying for the Secret Service protection — they owe us the duty not to so blatantly lie to us.
