Ted Cruz says it’s “critical for the FBI to search Hunter Biden’s homes”


Texas Sen. Ted Cruz wants the FBI to search Hunter Biden’s homes, after classified documents were discovered inside President Biden’s Wilmington home, where documents indicate Hunter has had a home office.

Cruz, who has already called for a search of the thousands of boxes of Biden documents donated to the University of Delaware, pointed to an email from Hunter Biden purporting to show a level of expertise in the Ukraine, saying he raised the “inference” that the president’s son may have had ‘direct access’ to classified information.

He said he can say “with metaphysical certainty” that there are no classified documents in his own home. His comments come after 2017-2019 paperwork had Hunter Biden claiming he had an office in the same Wilmington home where Biden’s legal counsel said classified material was found in a garage where he keeps his classic corvette.

Cruz referenced the same 2014 Hunter Biden email to his former business partner showing fluidity with domestic Ukraine politics that Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson flagged as “suspicious.”

‘The obvious question is, what was he cutting and pasting from? What was the source of it? And it raises the natural inference that Hunter Biden had direct access to these classified documents,’ Cruz said.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz pointed to an email that he says raises the “inference” that Hunter Biden had “direct access” to classified documents discovered at his father’s home in Wilmington. Other documents indicate that Hunter has maintained a home office there, prompting Cruz to say that Hunter’s properties should be searched.

“We know that Joe Biden, it seems like everywhere they look for classified documents for Joe Biden, they find him, whether it’s at his Wilmington home, his Rehoboth Beach home, whether it’s in his garage next to his Corvette, whether it’s in the room next to his garage, next to his Corvette, or in the Penn Biden Center.

The White House counsel said a search of Biden’s beach house turned up no classified material, although there have been calls for him to call the FBI for a search, as he did at his Wilmington home.

Cruz, the 2016 presidential candidate, made the comments to Fox News ‘Sunday Futures’ host Maria Bartiromo, who was one of President Trump’s most ardent supporters during the Russia investigation and who hosted him after the 2020 election, that Trump falsely claimed to be a ‘fraud’ and was ‘rigged’.

“It seems like he leaves classified documents everywhere he goes,” Cruz said of Biden. ‘And we also know that Hunter Biden was sometimes … stated that his residence was those same places. So I think the next natural step that is necessary is for the FBI to examine the more than 1,850 boxes of documents from Joe Biden’s Senate term that are at the University of Delaware.

“And I also think it’s critical that the FBI search Hunter Biden’s homes, home and office to make sure there are no classified documents there, given all the evidence that’s piling up. We need to determine who has had access to what and when,” she added.

Cruz referenced a briefing by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, who are demanding information about the contents of classified materials discovered at Biden’s home. Cruz is on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee.

‘Essentially, the administration said, go jump in a lake. We’re not going to tell you anything,’ she said. And that is totally unacceptable. Look, there’s a variety of classified documents. I have read many classified documents. Some are just general geopolitical observations. The consequences of that aren’t terribly significant.

Cruz said there was no possibility of classified material inside his own home, following the discovery of such material at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, Biden’s home and office and former Vice President Mike Pence’s home in Indiana.

‘I’ve been in the Senate for 10 years. I can affirm with metaphysical certainty that there are no classified documents in my house. How do I know that? Because I have read classified documents in one place. It is in SCIF, which is a secure location in the basement of the Capitol,” he said.

That comes after reports that notebooks from Biden’s time as vice president were among the items seized by the FBI during its search, which the White House has emphasized was produced at Biden’s invitation.

Cruz’s call to broaden the search comes after it was revealed that Hunter Biden appeared to have been using his father’s Delaware home as an office, with classified documents stored within the walls.

The president’s son, now 52, ​​made his father’s Wilmington mansion his home following his 2017 divorce from Kathleen Buhle.

In 2018 and 2019 he had invoices registered in the house, the new york post office reported Saturday, asking her assistant to send boxes of her office equipment to the residence.

“Send what’s in storage to my parents’ guest house,” he told his assistant, Katie Dodge, in a December 2018 text message.

A box labeled ‘Important Doc’s + Photos’ appears to have been left unsealed on a table at President Joe Biden’s Delaware home.

Hunter Biden, now 52, ​​was at the time exploring business and investment opportunities with partners in China, Ukraine and beyond.

It is now known that there were classified documents stored in the house.

Jim Hanson, a national security consultant and president of WorldStrat, said the fact that Hunter ran a private business out of an office where government documents were illegally stored was a recipe for disaster.

“Having access to classified US material makes it much easier to leverage your business operations,” he told the newspaper.

‘You know things that others don’t know or can’t know. That is a very different possibility.

He added that Hunter, who had well-publicized problems with drugs and addiction, was also vulnerable to allowing outsiders access to information.

“He’s a drug addict degenerate who cavorts with foreign prostitutes,” Hanson said.

‘How could it go wrong in a place where there are a lot of documents hidden everywhere?’

A special attorney has been appointed to investigate how the classified documents ended up at Joe Biden’s home and the DC office of his think tank.

On Friday, nbc news reported that Joe Biden’s personal notebooks were among the classified documents taken.

The notebooks contained entries related to his official business as vice president, the network said, including details of his diplomatic engagements during the Obama administration.

The notebooks, of which there were many, a source said, had no classified markings on them.

At least some documents were found in Biden's garage at his Wilmington, Delaware, home, where he keeps his vintage Corvette.  Biden's sons Beau and Hunter rebuilt the car for him

Jason R. Baron, former director of litigation for the National Archives, told NBC News that personal notebooks would be considered classified if they contained secret information and government property if shared with staff.

“Handwritten personal notes from a former president or vice president are only considered presidential records if they were shared or communicated with other White House or federal agency personnel for use in government transactions,” Baron said.

“A former president or vice president has the right to take personal notes from the White House; they are not official records that pass into the legal custody of the National Archives at the end of an administration.”

When asked about the notebooks, a spokesperson for Biden’s personal lawyer Bob Bauer said they would not comment.

“As noted in the statement issued on January 14, in accordance with our view of the requirements for our cooperation with the Department of Justice in this matter, we will not comment on the accuracy of reports of this nature,” the spokesperson said.
