The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (01/30/2023):
3:05pm- In his latest New York Post editorial, attorney Jonathan Turley argues that the Department of Justice needs to immediately investigate documents President Joe Biden gave to the University of Delaware. Turley writes, “[t]he university is sitting on Biden documents due to a cynical 2012 arrangement… The University of Delaware has been used for years to shield potentially embarrassing documents from public review for the Biden family, including allegations that the president engaged in sexual harassment or assault as a member of the Senate. The university effectively agreed to serve as a type of lockbox for the Bidens to prevent a review of his senatorial records as he ran for higher office.” Since it has now been determined that Biden improperly stored classified materials at both his Wilmington, DE home and his University of Pennsylvania office, isn’t it reasonable to conclude classified material may be improperly housed at the University of Delaware as well? Why hasn't the Justice Department acted?

Schiff conceded he “should have been more clear” when denying contact with whistleblowers.
