Snopes, a leading fact-check website, recently reversed a “fact-check” regarding the authenticity of Ashley Biden’s diary, which allegedly claimed that President Joe Biden had taken “inappropriate” showers with his daughter.

In response to a question concerning whether the contents of Ashley Biden’s diary had been verified, the fact-checking website wrote, “On April 29, 2024, Snopes changed the rating of this fact check from ‘Unproven’ to ‘True’ based on testimony provided by Ashley Biden. In an April 8 letter to a New York judge requesting jail time for one of the two people convicted of stealing her diary, Biden wrote ‘I will forever have to deal with the fact that my personal journal can be viewed online.'”

Snopes explained that the fact-check had previously stated that there was “strong evidence” Biden’s daughter’s diary existed but that the fact-check had “argued that no source had authenticated the contents of the pages published online.”

According to The Post Millennial, the fact-checking website’s reversal comes shortly after Ashley Biden wrote a letter to Judge Laura Taylor Swain confirming the authenticity of the diary. The letter was written by the president’s daughter during the sentencing of Aimee Harris, who was one of the two individuals convicted of stealing the diary and selling it to Project Veritas.

The Post Millennial reported that the theft of Ashley Biden’s diary resulted in controversy surrounding a quote in the diary that allegedly claimed Joe Biden had taken “inappropriate” showers with her.

In the letter to Swain during the sentencing process, Ashley Biden wrote, “I am deeply saddened that I even have to write this letter because my personal private journal was stolen and sold for profit. The point of the theft, I assume, was to be able to peddle grotesque lies by distorting my stream-of-consciousness thoughts.”

Ashley Biden wrote that her “once-private writings” have repeatedly been misinterpreted to “lob false accusations” that “defame” both her and those close to her.

“Although this criminal act happened more than three years ago, because of the publicity it drew—exactly as Ms. Harris intended—I am constantly re-traumatized by it,” the president’s daughter stated. “I will forever have to deal with the fact that my personal journal can be viewed online.”
