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.
