As we have previously reported, Joe Biden went on “Morning Joe” with Mika Brzezinski and tried to defend himself from the sexual assault allegations by Tara Reade.

But Brzezinski actually grilled him well, asking why wouldn’t he open up his Senate records, now being held at the University of Delaware, so that people could see if there was anything related to Reade and her allegations in them. She even mentioned how Biden had changed the time when the records would be available to be seen by the public and he avoided answering why he had done that. He did it after he declared for president last year.

According to the Business Insider, he also sent operatives there to search through the records, between the time he declared and the middle of March, at least once.

Biden’s excuse during the interview was ridiculous. He claimed that the papers didn’t include personnel records but that they were his public position papers and records of his meetings so that they could be “fodder” used against him in the election.

Really? Do tell us more? Incredible that he thinks his public records from when he was in the Senate aren’t “appropriate” to be scrutinized when that’s exactly what you want to be looking at, his positions he took, especially with foreign leaders (except perhaps if anything were still classified and then it wouldn’t likely be in the records).

So let’s consider. Let’s start with what Joe himself says he’s reluctant to let out.

What doesn’t he want us to know about what he said to Putin? Might we here more, as the GOP spokesperson, Elizabeth Harrington said, about how “flexible” they intended to be for Putin? We saw Barack Obama caught on hot mic. What did Joe say?

If he says things like he did about Ukraine and putting pressure on them to have the prosecutor fired in public, what exactly was he saying in private?

Let’s consider what might be there in terms of those questions about conflict of interest, not just about Ukraine.

Here’s Brokaw grilling him on it when Biden ran in 2008, before he dropped out and then became Obama’s running mate.

How about this, “25 hours of private meetings with Xi Jinping” especially in light of the present situation with China and his son’s relationship with China through the company he was on the board with that was connected to the government.

The papers run from 1973 to 2011 so they are likely chockfull of information.
