Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is hiding his Senate records by not authorizing their release. Reportedly the records contain details of meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, Biden both asserted sexual assault accusations leveled at him are false and doubled down on not releasing his records.
“The idea that they would all be made public and the fact, while I was running for public office, they could be really be taken out of context. The papers are position papers. They are documents that existed, for example, when I met with Putin or when I met with whomever. And all of that to be fodder in a campaign at this time, I don’t know of anybody who’s done anything like that.”
This is a puzzling position for Biden to take as his party has spent the last few years demanding documents from President Trump on anything remotely related to Russia.
For Biden to suddenly care about documents and information being taken out of context seems ironic.
Politically it may be the best move for Biden as he is already dealing with enough heat in the race. He is facing sexual assault allegations and some are questioning if he can make it to November.
