Suspicions over Biden’s nonexistent Delaware visitor logs rise

Considering that President Joe Biden has spent more than a quarter of his time in office away from prying eyes at his private residence in Delaware, it seems unlikely that Secret Service hasn’t kept tabs on who has been visiting the leader of the free world, but that’s exactly what they would have American’s believe — and Republicans aren’t buying it.

As BizPac Review reported earlier this month, the New York Post tried and failed to access what should be public visitor log via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The Post reported that Secret Service Deputy Director Faron Paramore replied to the request with a denial.

According to Paramore, “the agency conducted an additional search of relevant program offices for potentially responsive records. This search also produced no responsive records.”

“Accordingly,” Paramore concluded, “your appeal is denied.”

Fox News Digital took up the hunt for any records, asking the White House if they kept any regarding who has met with the President in Delaware and, if so, whether or not his administration would release them.

The response, not surprisingly, was a non-answer peppered with digs at former President Donald Trump, who broke precedent while in office and declined to make the White House visitor log public while he was in office.

In a statement, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said, “President Biden is proud to lead the most transparent administration in American history, and to have restored the practice of releasing visitors logs after it was discontinued by his predecessor.”

“We also respect that it’s always the role of evenhanded news outlets to advocate for more transparency,” he added.

While the Biden administration did indeed release visitor logs to the White House, it has chosen to keep the names of those who drop in on the President in Delaware a secret, fueling suspicion from the GOP.

U.S. Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) stated that Americans “deserve” the truth.

“The claim that there are no visitor logs for President Biden’s Delaware residence is a bunch of malarkey,” he told Fox News Digital. “Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with [his son] Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president. The Biden Administration must provide transparency to the American people.”

For Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), the lack of answers is another example of what has become a two-tiered system of accountability in America.

“The administration has repeatedly refused to give answers about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Joe Biden’s knowledge of corrupt business dealings, and meetings at Biden’s private hideout in Delaware,” she told Fox. “Joe Biden’s America operates under two standards: one for the radical left and one for the rest of the country.”

And according to Rep. Nancy Mace, (R-S.C.), the notion that there are no logs for Delaware is concerning.

“What is the Administration hiding? It’s one thing to assert confidentiality concerns when it comes to releasing logs about personal meetings with the President, but it’s quite another to claim these records don’t exist,” she said.

“It’s bad if there is official business being conducted and they aren’t telling us with who,” the lawmaker continued. “It’s even worse the Administration is using the Secret Service to excuse its complete and total lack of transparency.”

Every “individual that comes into close proximity with the President, in an official or personal capacity, is screened by the Secret Service,” Mace said, adding that the “record exists somewhere.”

Said Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), the “apparent lack of candor and openness concerning issues within this administration, does not match the standard that President Biden set on January 20, 2021.”

“In his Press Secretary’s words, the Biden administration would, ‘share information even when it is hard to hear,'” he continued. “They have failed to live up to their own standards.”
