INTERVIEW | Paul Kamenar on Why Special Counsel Should Expand Probe to Penn Biden Center's China Ties

President Joe Biden has had a difficult time explaining the increasing number of classified information documents that have been found at his home and at the Penn Biden Center, a think tank established in coordination with the University of Pennsylvania.The National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, first flagged the fact that some $60 million in donations from Chinese-connected entities were donated to the University of Pennsylvania for the Penn Biden Center.The new special counsel named to investigate Biden's alleged mishandling of classified information, Robert Hur, should expand his investigation to include the China connections with the Penn Biden Center, contends National Legal and Policy Center counsel Paul Kamenar told The Daily Signal.The watchdog group has already provided information to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, as well as to the newly established House Select Committee on Strategic Competition between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party, Kamenar said. But watchdog groups and the press can only request information under the Freedom of Information Act, and at best litigate if agencies don't comply.Both a special counsel and a congressional committee can compel cooperation.Kamenar joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss the classified documents discovered at the Penn Biden Center and the president's private home in Delaware; the China connection; where Biden's son Hunter fits into all of this; and how the Justice Department, the National Archives and the intelligence community have treated the Biden classified documents case differently than the documents case of former President Donald Trump.Enjoy the show!
