    A government watchdog filed a federal complaint over the involvement of
    the White House Counsel’s office in President Biden’s growing
    classified documents scandal.

    Fox News Digital has learned that government watchdog Protect the
    Public’s Trust (PPT) filed their complaint with the U.S. Office of
    Government Ethics on Tuesday.

    "The American public will not tolerate a two-tiered system of justice –
    with well-connected insiders subject to a lower standard of scrutiny
    than the normal citizen," PPT director Mike Chamberlain said in a
    statement to Fox News Digital.

    "President Biden promised the most ethical and transparent
    administration in history," Chamberlain said. "If the White House
    compounded a scandal involving possible mishandling of classified
    documents by improperly using taxpayer resources for his personal
    benefit and putting White House attorneys in positions that created
    conflicts of interest, we could be witnessing a serious betrayal of the public’s already-plummeting trust."

    "It also creates the spectre of possible obstruction of a congressional investigation, depending on the legal basis for the intervention and
    any future privileges claimed by the White House on this escalating
    scandal," he added.
