Kash’s Corner: Biden’s Classified Documents Must Be Added to Investigation List of New Committee on Weaponization of Federal Government

In this episode of Kash’s Corner, we discuss revelations that Joe Biden mishandled classified documents during his tenure as Vice President and that this has been known since before the midterm elections. Kash Patel reflects on the disparity in the media’s treatment of this event versus the FBI’s raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago.

We also discuss the House’s new Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and who they should be investigating. This includes Anthony Fauci, Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, as well as the FBI, DOJ, and other intelligence and law enforcement agencies, Patel says. Patel also reveals what Congress can do should any government employees violate their subpoenas.

“If you can’t trust the Department of Justice, or they won’t do their job, the Speaker of the House, after a vote of the full Congress, can order the Sergeant at Arms, who’s the number one cop for Congress, to go and arrest individual citizens and government employees who violate congressional subpoenas,” explains Patel.

Kash Patel:

Hey everybody. Welcome back to Kash’s Corner. We got a lot of great stuff to cover today, and at the end of the show, I’m going to give you some details about my new book, Government Gangsters, which is now available for pre-sale. Jan, where would you like to start today?

Jan Jekielek:

There’s a lot going on in Congress right now. We’ve got this new committee on the weaponization of the federal government, and I know you’ve been thinking about that quite a bit, and we’re going to do a deep dive there. We also want to look at the COVID mandate, the DOD basically rescinding it, and Congress essentially forcing them to do that as far as I can tell. And finally, there’s the classified documents at the Biden Penn Center that we’re just learning about now, but apparently have been known about for quite some time. Feels like a full episode to me.

Mr. Patel:

You forgot about the inherent contempt of Congress powers, which we’re also going to talk about.

Mr. Jekielek:

Right. This is something that is quite popular in social media right now, and something that not a lot of people know about.

Mr. Patel:

Yes, I did not expect it to be so popular, but we’ll give you the real deal on today’s show.

Mr. Jekielek:

Right, exactly. Let’s start with what some people are calling Church two.

Mr. Patel:

Yes, just for everyone’s refresher. Back in the seventies, the intelligence communities were totally corrupt, and Congress founded this stand-alone committee, as they call it, a select committee called the Church Committee named after one of the members to investigate the abuses, and more importantly, fix them.

It was successful in a large part, which is why over the last year or two, you’ve been hearing that should Republicans take over the House of Representatives, they would want a new Church committee, Church two, because of the corruption that we have talked about extensively, not just at FBI and DOJ, but in the intelligence community overall, including DOD and NSA and CIA. So, they felt a new standalone committee was necessary.

Now, we had also talked about last week topically the Speaker of the House and the negotiations and why they were so important. Now, you know why we said these negotiations were critical. As a result of the negotiations, we have a subcommittee under the judiciary committee. As you know, the Judiciary Committee oversees FBI, DOJ, and everything related to the federal courts, including some components of the intelligence committee.

While we don’t have a stand-alone committee, we have something under the chairmanship of Jim Jordan called the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, essentially investigating what we have been asking Congress for years now to investigate should the Republicans take over. So, that was a major, major, major win.

Now, it’s time to do the work. The hard part is standing up the committee, winning enough votes in the Congress to stand up the committee, getting the right leadership, and empowering it to issue subpoenas. Now, what lines of effort are going to go out? I’ve been extensively involved behind the scenes in asking for and advocating for this style of committee. I’m also going to be very public about what the committee should be doing, and I’m available should the committee want to know how to proceed on any of these lines of efforts. But we can talk about them here.

Mr. Jekielek:

We have talked on this show about some of the investigations that you feel are the critical ones that should lead. Why don’t we start there? One of them is certainly in the COVID realm.

Mr. Patel:

Fauci is the one-word name that you can say is deserving of an entire investigation. I think the subcommittee, the new Church two, or whatever you want to call it, will focus on—because the overall weaponization of government is related to the underlying intelligence that surrounds COVID origins—is everything related to Wuhan laboratory, everything related to gain of function, and everything related to why did the U.S. fund it at all? These matters were never really publicized in terms of the intelligence they were spoken about on.

This committee has a right and should have a mandate to go in there and subpoena those documents from everywhere in the government. They should ask, “Why did Fauci go out there and lie to the American people about X, Y, and Z? Why didn’t anyone stop him? Where was the investigative prowess from the FBI, or DOJ, or NSA, or CIA to say, ‘Wait a second, what if this guy who is the number one health expert in America is wrong?’”

Those questions need to be answered. From my perspective, and people might not agree, it’s not so much an attack on Fauci, it’s that he had a position of power and misled the world and the American people, time and again, and it cost people their lives and it destroyed families. And we haven’t even talked about the vaccine mandate. We’re just talking about COVID origins. So, that’s a piece of it.

Mr. Jekielek:

Absolutely. But the second piece that jumps to mind immediately is the vilification of incredibly competent scientists who were advocating for a rational, traditional pandemic management policy, which ended up being called the Great Barrington Declaration, because they wanted to wrap it around something.

Mr. Patel:

Right. Epoch Times has done the best job, in my opinion, on the medical research behind what Fauci was talking about, the COVID origins and the vaccine. It has literally been the best reporting in media. Fauci attacked the Great Barrington Declaration. Based on what? It wasn’t science or data or medically available information, it was political rhetoric.

Why did the number one health officer in the land become a politician all of a sudden? Those are questions this subcommittee can ask related to Fauci COVID origins and the vaccine and the mandate. And there’s so many other questions they have to investigate.

Specifically, why did the Biden administration, and we’re going to get to this in a minute, mandate the vaccine for our service members? What science was that based on? They just came in and said, “You have to do this.” If our audience will recall, and we did an episode on it where I talked about it for the first time, yes, we, in the Trump administration, ran Operation Warp Speed.

And yes, I, as the chief of staff there said that it was my duty in that leadership position to be one of the first to get vaccinated, because I thought it would be the basic failure of leadership to ask millions of employees at the Department of Defense to take said vaccine if I wasn’t willing to take it.

Now, whether you believe in taking the vaccine or not we’ve addressed that’s a different issue, but we never mandated it. Because we knew, as you have said repeatedly in the past, it was a new disease. It was a new vaccine. We had no medical data backing up its efficacy, its long-term effects, and its effect on children, which the Epoch has reported on.

Mr. Jekielek:

Worst of all, there were no studies from what we understand done to understand the transmission issue. And the transmission issue is crucial here, because many ethicists will argue there’s never an ethical case for imposing a mandate. But some ethicists will say that in a situation where it really stops a disease cold, maybe there’s a case. So presumably, that’s the basis that would’ve been the basis for these mandates. But it turns out this data never existed.

Mr. Patel:

This is a great point to hammer home. This subcommittee can go out and subpoena every department and agency related to these issues and questions that we’re talking about right now. “Where is your evidence? Where is your reporting? Where is your data to say the things we’ve just talked about?”

And in my opinion, or in my guesstimation, they’re going to come up with zero. They’re not going to have any data. They’re not going to have any concrete evidence, but the American people are owed that. That’s the perfect example of constitutional oversight that is the role of Congress as the third branch of government. They’re the legislative branch.

Their job is not just to make the laws and fund the government. They have to oversee a government that runs away and is corrupt and has waste, fraud, and abuse, like we did with Russiagate. That’s the purpose of this committee, and that’s how it can cover everything related to COVID and Fauci.

Mr. Jekielek:

It’s unbelievable because we just talked about three things. We talked about origins, we talked about these shelter-in-place policies, and we talked about vaccine mandates. That feels like a massive job in itself for a committee or a subcommittee. But that’s not all for this subcommittee.

Mr. Patel:

No, that’s the good thing, right? Because you’re right. I have to remind people, there are multiple committees in Congress. Many, many, many committees, more than a dozen, that can do separate investigations on very specific lanes, i.e., the banking committee can go oversee the banking institutions and see whether or not they sent money for X, Y, and Z, and was it for corrupt purposes?

Here we have a Church Committee for the Weaponization of Federal Government. If there are financial ties to what we just talked about, they can go investigate that as well. But you’re right, it’s a large lift. But what I’m told is that it’s going to be very well staffed. There’s going to be a large number of hill staffers working on this, as well as dedicated members from the Congress on this specific committee. So, it’s possible to do that lift and the other ones we’re going to talk about.

Mr. Jekielek:

I’ll just add one more thing because this whole question of censorship and narrative shaping, whether it’s COVID, or whether it’s Russia, obviously would be a central issue for this committee, right?

Mr. Patel:

Absolutely. What I forgot to say was this committee was created by a House Resolution. That means, and we could put it up for our audience, it’s now public that the House specifically voted on the language setting up this subcommittee. It did not exist before, like the Church committee.

It’s been given a new mandate, a new name, and a new entity entirely of its own that sits under the judiciary. You can read the language in that resolution that specifically says that this is what this subcommittee will do. These are its powers, this is its authority, and this is its ability to go out and investigate through multiple agencies and departments.

Mr. Jekielek:

And something strikes me also, if this committee does a good job in its work, it will definitely help people and society at large have more trust in Congress again.

Mr. Patel:

It’s not just Congress, right? Congress has a great opportunity here to do just that, restore trust, because you don’t have to be up pollster to know that the Congress has the lowest approval rating year over year over year because they fail, in my opinion, to represent the wishes of the American people that sent them there. It’s a great chance for them to capture the emotion of a country and say, “You owe us constitutional oversight.”

But at the same time, it’s a great opportunity to hold people in government accountable for failing to do their jobs or politicizing the efforts. It’s called the weaponization of the federal government, as the committee is called, and it’s aptly named. In my opinion, they really just need to focus on three big investigations. We’ve just talked about one of them. If they do that plus two others, we will see some major results come the early spring.

Mr. Jekielek:

As a reminder, because we have talked about this, what are the two others?

Mr. Patel:

The FBI and DOJ has to be another investigation based on all of the abuses from Russiagate, to the FISA abuses, to the Twitter files, to the coordination and conspiracy and collusion between Big Tech and FBI to rig presidential elections, to Hunter Biden’s laptop, and to Joe Biden’s classified document possession. We’ll get to that too. But all of that can be nested under this weaponization of federal government subcommittee on an investigation of the FBI and DOJ. So, that’s number two.

Traditionally, and I think we have to do away with this tradition, Congress has not asked senior level government employees who are not what we call, SES and above, to come and testify. That is wholly inappropriate going forward. Every single government employee, whether you’re a junior GS as we call it, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, or 15, if you touch or you are part of a conspiracy or an effort to defraud the government or the American people, subpoena them. Every one of them has to testify.

Just this week, Jan, the Assistant Attorney General at DOJ issued a letter on addressing this very issue, because they’re terrified that this Congress might subpoena personnel that aren’t SES. What he reiterated in this letter was, “It’s been tradition. Please don’t subpoena anyone that is not an SES level or higher.” They know that this Congress has the authority to do it.

And they also know about these corrupt government gangsters, as I’ve always called them, and the corruption that the SES level folks can hide because they’re part of the problem. We have to make sure this Congress pierces that tradition and subpoenas everyone involved in absolutely every matter we’re talking about in every document involved.

And then, as we’ve always said, make everything public. If you don’t make everything public and you do it behind closed doors, it’s a total waste of time in terms of oversight for the American people. Now, I’m not saying do everything out in the open right away. We didn’t even do that in Russiagate, but we had a methodology to it. Sometimes you have to go behind closed doors. Sometimes you have to look at classified docs, but there are mechanisms in Congress to release that information like we did during Russiagate. And so, I want Congress to use that.

The third and last major investigation on the weaponization of government has to be surrounded, as I’ve always said, by the border. While that’s not necessarily DOJ, it’s a piece of FBI, and it’s a big piece of DHS and the intelligence community. The reason I want it nested in the weaponization of federal government is because of the intel.

What was the Biden Administration’s basis for making the decisions to change the border policy 180 degrees from the Trump administration? President Biden just went down to Mexico and told the Mexican president, “We’ve stopped the border wall,” and the Mexican president thanked him for it. What was the basis for this? Did you do it on politics or did you do it on evidence and intel?

What about the border agents? Are we funding them? Why is it that we have record number of illegal immigrants crossing the border every month since Biden took office? 200 plus thousand last month alone. Just think about that. And they want them to keep coming.

And my big issue with the border is why are we not as United States government using our agencies, DHS, FBI, and our DOD and intel components to follow known terrorists who enter the country illegally through the southern border and then disperse throughout the country? We’ve reported on this show in the past how there are dozens, by this government’s own admission, dozens and dozens of known terrorists or people of known terrorist affiliations who have illegally crossed the southern border, and we don’t know where they are. That is a question this committee can also attack.

One thing I would say that’s tangentially related to the FBI-DOJ thing, and I know it’s on the minds of a lot of people, is the whole January 6th matter. I’m not saying re-litigate January 6th. We know the truth. It’s been documented heavily on this show and fantastically by The Epoch Times in the documentaries they’ve put out.

But my specific ask goes back to the FBI-DOJ component where this committee must subpoena every document relating to FBI confidential human sources. We did a whole show on this that was involved with January 6th and Ray Epps and company. He wasn’t the only one. How much money was he paid? How long did the FBI have on his payroll before they air mailed him and who knows how many other confidential human sources play into January 6th, where they were responsible for instigating violence that would not have otherwise occurred? That is the definition of entrapment. How many people have been arrested and detained in the DC jails based on that entrapment?

This documentation exists. I know it exists because the FBI has extensive confidential human source files, but I’ve labeled this as the confidential human source corruption coverup network. To date, the FBI hasn’t had to release these files, because they haven’t had a Republican majority in Congress forcing them to do so.

So, this committee needs to make those demands for those documents, release them to the public, and then get Chris Wray and Merrick Garland to testify as to why they authorized these sorts of invasive and I believe unlawful investigative techniques for a political narrative.

Those are the investigations they should focus on. They’ll splinter from there. And there can be one-offs. I’ll just give you a quick example of a one-off. Why is it that the director of the FBI has his private jet that’s funded by U.S. taxpayer dollars flown in from Manassas Airfield to Reagan National, instead of taking his three-car armored suburban motorcade 35 miles up there to take the plane? It’s 5,000 a pop every time that plane takes off and lands the 35 miles from Manassas to Reagan National.

If you want to talk about waste, fraud, and abuse, that is the definition of it. And we actually have the flight logs from the plane, which we’ll put up for our audience proving this.  As our friend Steve Bannon says, we have the receipts. Those types of splinter investigations could also take place under the bigger umbrella investigations as we talk about them.

We’ll get into this in another episode, but there have been massive failures at the FBI in terms of sexual misconduct between employees, which affects their ability to do their jobs, Jill Tyson being one example. Those are splinter investigations that can come off from there.

Mr. Jekielek:

Speaking of January 6th, I want to highlight this big new investigation by Joe Hanneman, our reporter. We obtained the radio logs from the Capitol Police and found that there was radio silence during a very significant portion of the time of this Capitol breach and everything that was happening there. It’s a very powerful story. We’ll put the link in the bottom.

And frankly, I don’t know if I agree entirely on not looking back on January 6th, because I don’t think we know right now what really happened there. We’ve covered on the show that the January 6th committee approach to the whole issue was politicized. But as we’ve said on the show multiple times, it would be great to know what really happened and the whole picture.

I don’t know if there’s a plan for this or not, but it’s important because there’s even more subpoenas that have gone out for even more people who were involved in this breach. There are people that have been in jail for extremely long periods of time being treated incredibly inhumanely for things which are ostensibly misdemeanors. Apparently, it’s a very weird overshoot by government.

Mr. Patel:

I agree with you, and I will bookend it with this. A lot of people have been asking, with this new Republican Congress and now that Kevin McCarthy is speaker, have they lived up to their expectations? Are they going to live up to the expectations that we’ve just outlined? I just want to talk about a couple things real quickly. Kevin McCarthy just came out and said he might release the 14,000 hours of video surveillance that is in the possession of the United States law enforcement agencies.

That would be a huge win for January 6th alone, because we could release the [inaudible], as you always say. But more importantly, there’s evidence of innocence in there and there’s probably evidence of FBI corruption and activity of the DOJ that’s unlawful or unethical or improper in there. So, McCarthy said that. Hopefully, he follows through with that and this committee has that evidence and is available to release to the public.

Mr. Jekielek:

Since we’re talking about Congress, we have to jump in and talk about this, something that not a lot of people seem to know about. Congress can work outside of the Department of Justice and arrest people in certain situations where there is contempt of Congress. What is this all about?

Mr. Patel:

A little bit of history here. Normally what happens, and we’ve seen it play out with the Steve Bannon case and the Peter Navarro case, Congress issues subpoenas because it has that ability to do so per the Constitution and the laws. These investigations can only be advanced by the issuance of all these subpoenas for documents and for witnesses. But what happens when a witness doesn’t show up, or what happens when the director of the FBI doesn’t produce the documents under subpoena?

It’s a violation of a congressional subpoena. Thanks to the January 6th committee that’s now been disbanded, we’ve seen the power of not just a congressional subpoena, but what should happen when it’s violated or if it’s violated. It should be referred to the Department of Justice for immediate prosecution. That works when you have a Department of Justice that is not politicized.

That’s not going to work in this Department of Justice or this FBI with Garland and Wray because they are not, in my opinion, going to take that matter seriously. Or they’re going to take it and say, “We’ll investigate it. We’ll take a look,” and do nothing with it and not take it to federal court. Its prosecution must occur in federal court like they did with the Steve Bannon trial.

What happens when you don’t have a Department of Justice who’s willing to enforce the law unilaterally and not based on a two-tier system of justice? Our founding fathers thought of this. Our congressional history speaks to it directly. During my time in Russiagate when we were the first committee to issue something like 17 subpoenas in the House Intel Committee’s history, we were investigating them, and they were not providing us with the documentation.

Of course, they weren’t going to take a referral from Congress for a violation of a congressional subpoena. It had their names on it. So, we researched it. There is this rule of law that’s called the Inherent Contempt of Congress Power, which basically is set up for this precise scenario.

If you can’t trust the Department of Justice and/or they won’t do their job, the Speaker of the House after a vote of the full Congress can order the Sergeant at Arms who’s the number one cop for Congress to go and arrest individual citizens and government employees who violate congressional subpoenas. And they can be detained. They can go rent space at the DC jail just like the FBI did for all the January 6th defendants, so there’s places to house them.

It’s an extreme measure. I will give you that, but it was thought of for this very specific reason. Is this Speaker of the House and this congressional leadership team going to be willing to exact that measure of justice, if the DOJ and FBI aren’t willing to do it? That’s the question, after they’ve already violated congressional subpoenas, which I believe they will do because they will delay and deflect and not produce documents and hope to run out the clock as their normal practice with this DOJ and FBI. That’s just one example of where Congress has this inherent power to basically adjudicate matters of congressional subpoenas that have been violated themselves.

Mr. Jekielek:

Has this ever been done?

Mr. Patel:

Not that I could find in history, though. You’d have to ask someone smarter. It might have been done once, and I just don’t know.

Mr. Jekielek:

This is a fascinating new bit of information, and it will certainly add a bit of intrigue to everything we’re seeing happen in Congress right now. Let’s jump to this third thing I want to talk about, which is this disclosure of these 10 classified documents that were found at the Biden Penn Center. The interesting thing is it seems like they were disclosed just before the midterms actually happened.

Mr. Patel:

Yes. Oh man, I don’t even know where to start on this one. As you can imagine, from my background, the handling and mishandling of classified information is something we have always taken extremely seriously. The way that the media has castigated people in and around the Trump world for that investigation related to Mar-a-Lago, the juxtaposition next to this just lays bare the two-tier system of justice we are operating under.

Furthermore, it is an indictment of the fake news media as I call them. They have been a conspirator in the perpetuation of lies from the fraudsters in government, investigation after investigation. And to me, that’s what we have to use this investigation about Biden’s classified document possession for, to highlight that disparity and to show the American public that we need to return to a universal system of law enforcement.

Let’s lay this out in a timeline fashion as I’ve been trying to, and you said it perfectly. The investigation started before the midterms, before we had one of the most important midterm election cycles in modern U.S. history. The DOJ and FBI were asked to investigate this before then.

People will say now they are involved, the DOJ and FBI, with the further politicization of the law enforcement apparatus and further rigging of elections, Russiagate, Hunter Biden’s laptop, and Joe Biden’s possession of classified documents. All you have to do is ask yourself, what if they said President Trump or Don Jr. were in possession of classified documents a week before the election? Do you think that story would not have leaked? It’s a double standard.

Okay, so they buried it. Why? Obviously, they wanted it to not sway the elections for Republicans. That couldn’t be more clear. But now we’re in January of 2023 and this information has come out. But before we get there, let’s stay in November of 2022. In November of 2022, in the second week around November 11th or 14th, the Washington Post issued an article based on anonymous reporting that the investigators in the Mar-a-Lago raid had determined that President Trump would not be charged, because he took the documents—and this is from the article—”for desire and ego”.

Now, the Washington Post is no friend of President Trump or anyone in his universe. That article wasn’t widely spread. Why did they write it? They wrote it because those same people, in my estimation, knew about Joe Biden’s classified documents leak case, and they were setting up the platform for down the road to say, “Look, the DOJ is treating everyone fairly, both a former president, and a sitting president.” They are going to, in my opinion, exonerate Joe Biden based on that same anonymous leak conclusion that investigators have made at the FBI and DOJ.

Now, I don’t know for sure whether it’s true, but you have to ask yourself why is the Washington Post reporting that? And then you have to connect it through just a couple of months later when now it’s breaking that Joe Biden was in possession of classified information. Okay, full stop there.

Now, Jan, have you seen the picture of all the documents sprawled on the Biden Center floor with the top-secret cover sheets? Of course not. The FBI staged that charade at Mar-a-Lago on purpose. And this is just another distinction of how they actually investigate these matters. There’s no photo of it.

We don’t really know what’s in there. We’ll get to the media’s reporting of what is in there, and if it’s accurate, it’s extremely troubling. But Joe Biden just came out yesterday and said, “I have no idea what’s in those documents.”

Okay, let’s put a pin in that. The Biden Center is in Washington DC, whatever it’s called, the Biden Penn Center, the Penn Biden Center, whatever you want to call it, he, Joe Biden took those classified documents, which are being reported as classified at the top-secret SCI compartmented level, the highest level of classification there is.

Mr. Jekielek:

Some of them.

Mr. Patel:

Some of them.

Mr. Jekielek:


Mr. Patel:

He took those documents when he was vice president seven years ago. Literally, no one’s talking about that. It’s not like he took the documents the day he walked out of the White House’s VP seven years ago and deposited them in the Biden Penn Center and never moved them again. They have been moving for seven years. Who put them there? Who else knew they were classified? What other people were involved in the illegal transportation, in my opinion, of the classified documents?

I love how the media is now saying, “Somehow, it was locked in a storage unit.” Isn’t that hilarious, when documents found in the Trump Mar-a-Lago case were locked in a storage unit behind secret service protection, as it has been reported? Again, another distinction or another example of disparate treatment depending on who the target is.

When it was referred for prosecution to the FBI and DOJ, it was assigned to a U.S. attorney in Illinois. Why this guy? His name is Laus. I think it’s Dave or Dan Laus Jr. He was one of the only U.S. attorneys to be a holdover from the Trump administration. Now, you got to ask yourself why. Laus was held over at the request of the two Democratic senators from the state of Illinois, Duckworth and Durbin.

They asked President Joe Biden to keep this guy on. Do you think that happens accidentally? What they’re going to do is attempt, in my opinion, a whitewash and say, “Look, we had a Trump holdover, look at this case. And it shouldn’t have happened, but nothing to see here.” It’s just another example of a totally pre-textual politicization of the law enforcement apparatus by Garland and Chris Wray. Why didn’t they appoint a special counsel?

Mr. Jekielek:

There is a special counsel in the case of the Mar-a-Lago classified documents, Jack Smith.

Mr. Patel:

Right. And you bring up a great point, and I don’t want to dive too much into the Mar-a-Lago stuff for obvious reasons, but did the U.S. Attorney General know at the time of the Jack Smith appointment that Joe Biden was also in possession of classified documents? Look at the timeline. Why wasn’t a separate special counsel appointed for Joe Biden? These questions have to be asked. They’re willing to appoint special counsels for political purposes, that’s what this FBI and DOJ have showed us.

Raise your hand if you’ve been subpoenaed by the FBI for the Mar-a-Lago raid. This guy, me, okay. Where are the hundreds of FBI agents pursuant to the instruction of the DOJ sending out subpoenas to the dozens and dozens of people in the Biden Presidential campaign, and in the Biden vice presidency house in this current White House to investigate this classified document leak to the degree that they are doing in Mar-a-Lago, where hundreds of people, in my estimation, have been subpoenaed?

Why has that not happened here? They’ve known about him for months. As you pointed out, it’s not like it broke yesterday, and that the investigation just started. It’s a completely disparate treatment on a two-tier system of justice on how investigations are run. That is why this investigation needs to go to that subcommittee in Congress on the weaponization of the FBI and the federal government, because this DOJ has shown itself that it cannot do it. It will only do things that are politically convenient for it and this administration. I know we said three investigations, but we hadn’t gotten to this one yet.

Mr. Jekielek:

It seems like the subcommittee has a lot on its plate. But what would it need to do for this fourth investigation that you’re proposing?

Mr. Patel:

In my opinion, this is another investigation of the FBI and DOJ for being politicized. But what they should do, the subcommittee, is send out subpoenas for all the documentation. No one’s called for this yet, but I’m calling for it. It is sitting at the Biden Penn Center, all of it. They should also subpoena all the documents at the University of Delaware that the University of Delaware said it will not release publicly for like another 20 years.

I don’t believe for one second these are the only sets of government documents that Joe Biden took out of the White House while he was vice president. Congress is the only one that can pierce through that wall that is being put up by the University of Delaware, and also subpoena the records at the Biden Penn Center. And I think you will find more documents that may have classified markings on them, or that maybe were handled improperly.

Those are the unique abilities of this subcommittee. The DOJ and FBI aren’t going to do it. We know that. They are going to try to bury this thing and say, “Nothing to see here.” And the media’s already trying to carry their water for them. They’re saying, “Oh, it’s different.” But we haven’t talked about the documents. If the media reporting from CNN, who is no friend of President Trump and his administration, is right, it said the documents that were seized that had classification markings on them were related to Ukraine, China, Iran, and possibly Russia.

From my time in government as the former chief of staff DOD, and the former Deputy Director of National Intelligence and the former Head of Counterterrorism, those four countries surmises some of our most sensitive intelligence collection we have. That means it’s the most compartment classified, highly secret information in the U.S. government.

Why did Joe Biden take it? Why did he now come out and say he doesn’t know anything about it? How is it possible that he doesn’t know anything about it? And what will those documents show? We the American people ultimately need to see those documents.

Do they relate to his son Hunter Biden? Do they relate to his dealings with Burisma and the CCP and the amount of money he was paid? Do they relate to Joe Biden firing a Ukrainian prosecutor essentially via blackmail by withholding U.S. funds to Ukraine until that man is fired, and that man in the Ukraine was investigating his son, Hunter Biden? All of those questions must be answered.

This is going to play out for some time. It now puts a unique lens on the Mar-a-Lago investigation. You’ve seen the mainstream media doing tap dance after tap dance trying to find distinctions. And I agree, there is a distinction. If the reporting is true in the media, then Joe Biden mishandled classified information. It is wholly separate and different, and who’s going to hold him accountable?

The biggest takeaway is the following, which I’ve been saying for a long time, especially as a former Deputy Director of National Intelligence; a sitting President of the United States is the sole arbiter of classification. That means he’s the sole classifying authority. He and he alone can classify and declassify anything he or she wishes. Do you know who does not have that power? A vice president of the United States, which is made abundantly clear now by putting these investigations on parallel tracks between Biden and Trump as it relates to classified documents, especially when you go back and look at the office director of National Intelligence, which was created after 9/11, which specifically talks about the classification authority and where it rests and where it does not rest in their regulations.

For our audience, that is the biggest takeaway and we’ve been saying it for a long time, because it’s the law. But the media, ever since the Mar-a-Lago investigation became public, has trampled on that fact to muddy the waters and to attack President Trump. Now let’s see if the media reports accurately on the distinction and the biggest takeaway, in my opinion, between the authority of a sitting president and a sitting vice president when it comes to classified documents.

Mr. Jekielek:

It seems like the subcommittee really is going to have its hands full. It’s time for our shoutout, Kash.

Mr. Patel:

Yes, indeed, Jan. But before I get to the shoutout, I’d like to just tell our audience briefly about my newest book, Government Gangsters. It’s now available for presale at What’s in it? I thought it was always going to be valuable to the American public to do a deep dive on the deep state. And we name every government gangster by name. But more than that, we say how they failed in their mission to serve the American people and the teams they surrounded themselves with to defraud us and fail to protect America’s interests.

But more importantly, in the book, I tell you how each agency and department can be saved and freed from corruption and how we exact accountability for the American people. So, please check out We’re doing some pretty cool things with personalized copies and signed copies. And as always, I appreciate your support for all the books we put out. Thank you so much.
