The U.S. Secret Service says it cannot find records identifying any visitors to President Joe Biden’s Delaware homes, according to a Freedom of Information Act appeal from the New York Post. Biden has spent approximately one quarter of his presidency at his Delaware residences.
In a letter dated Sept. 27, Secret Service deputy director Faron Paramore said that “the agency conducted an additional search of relevant program offices for potentially responsive records.”
“This search also produced no responsive records,” Paramore claimed. “Accordingly, your appeal is denied.”
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) slammed the Secret Service’s claims and the Biden administration’s ongoing lack of transparency.
“The claim that there are no visitor logs for President Biden’s Delaware residence is a bunch of malarkey,” Comer told The Post. “Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with [first son] Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president.”
“The Biden administration must provide transparency to the American people,” he added.
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) echoed Comer’s comments, vowing to pursue transparency when it comes to Biden’s involvement in his family’s businesses.
“President Biden denies any involvement in his son’s business dealings, despite indisputable evidence of numerous meetings with his son’s business partners,” Reschenthaler said. “I am deeply concerned by this blatant conflict of interest and its massive national security implications.”
“It is absolutely crucial that visitor log records for Biden’s homes in Delaware, where he spends a quarter of his time, be released to the public,” he continued. “This administration’s stonewalling and gaslighting must stop. Next year, House Republicans will conduct a fair and transparent investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling and deliver the American people the answers they deserve.”
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said the Secret Service must have visitor logs – and if it doesn’t, that’s a scandal.
“If the Secret Service is doing its job, there has to be visitor records,” Fitton said. “If there aren’t any records, the scandal is much bigger than just a lack of transparency.”
The lack of transparency comes after President Biden repeatedly denied any involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s work, which is connected to both China and Ukraine. However, earlier this year, a 2018 voicemail surfaced that appeared to show Joe Biden calling his son Hunter to talk about a New York Times article discussing Hunter’s business dealings.
