Biden, Biden, Biden…
Tsk, tsk, tsk.
On Real Time with Bill Maher last week, Biden said, in reference to the Gannon/Guckert affair:
How could the FBI – for 17 years, I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee, the ranking member; I read more FBI reports than I ever wanted to know – how could that happen, and no one had any idea who this guy was? Forget everything else. Assume he went in there and he was a saint. How could that be? We should know that. There should be – the Judiciary Committee of the United States Senate should be investigating it. The House Judiciary Committee should be investigating it. And if it were the other party in charge, it would be investigated.
Then, Sen. Durbin circulated a letter around the Senate offices calling for an investigation. Guess who wouldn’t sign it? That’s right, Sen. Biden.
His reason? He wasn’t given enough time to read it. Yes, a one page letter. This is a guy who signed off on the PATRIOT Act without reading it.
