National Security Council strategic communications coordinator John Kirby appeared at today’s White House press briefing and was pressed by Fox News’ Peter Doocy on classified documents.
Doocy asked Kirby, “John, how hard is it to walk out of a SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) with classified material?”
Kirby responded, “Everybody who goes into a SCIF knows what the requirements are to go in and knows what the requirements are to go out.”
“You know… you can’t bring personal devices in, and you certainly can’t leave with material unless that material is appropriately secured,” Kirby explained.
Doocy then wondered, “And usually, what happens to someone in the chain of command if they do leave with a piece of classified material that they’re not supposed to have or that is not secured?”
At that point, Kirby was able to get a response in to try and defend Joe Biden and his apparent “mishandling” of classified documents.
“I think if, if you do it inadvertently or you do it and you, you realize… you don’t have it secured in a locked bag… you self-report, which is exactly what the president did, self-reported,” Kirby claimed.
Of course, the “self-reporting” only occurred after roughly 10 documents were initially discovered by Biden’s personal attorneys in his vice-presidential office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington.

A lot of money in “Global Engagement.”
Mostly flowing from tax revenue to other countries, grants, global activist causes, and ‘big guys.’ In various and sundry ways.
I thought all classified documents have identifiers on them much like ISBN #s and they are recorded/logged into a database which tracks the location of the document. How then can someone like FJB have them in their possession for 10 plus years and no one noticed. The national archives definately knew about President Trumps document(s) location.
In the Biden administration unethical practices are common, due to his past record.
Why is it if Joe Schmoe has classified documents all the
government has to prove is possession BUT, if some government hack, a high level hack like say a Clinton, Obama or a Biden has classified documents INTENT to harm the nation has to be proven? If anyone can answer that I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
