White House Liar Claims Biden in Israel Meetings Instead of Special Counsel Interview


(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) A White House propagandist has come under scrutiny for misleading the public about President Joe Biden’s activities over the weekend. 

Andrew Bates, the White House propagandist, claimed on Monday that Biden was busy “analyzing Israel” while in reality, the president was being deposed by Special Counsel Robert Hur regarding the mishandling of classified documents during his tenure as vice president. 

Responding to a Fox News tweet that suggested Biden had halted his duties on Monday, Bates took to Twitter to assert, “For those unfamiliar, a ‘lid’ is just a courtesy announcement to reporters that they should not expect public events.”  He continued, “On the contrary, he’s working to support Israel all day.”

However, media reports promptly contradicted this claims, unveiling that Biden was, in fact, facing questions from the Department of Justice’s Robert Hur. 

Another White House spokesperson described the deposition as “voluntary.” 

White House spokesman Ian Sams specifically claimed, “The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday.”

The investigation led by Hur centers around the discovery of classified documents at Biden’s residence and office after he left his role as vice president in the Obama administration.  

“This appointment underscores for the public the Department’s commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters, and to making decisions indisputably guided only by the facts and the law,” Garland explained in January 2023.

Comparisons have arisen with former President Donald Trump, who also faces legal scrutiny over classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago estate. However, unlike Trump, Biden did not possess the authority to declassify documents at will. 

Inexplicably, the National Archives Administration’s lack of concern regarding the classified documents, which were discovered nearly six years after Biden’s departure from the Obama White House, has raised questions about their own mishandling of sensitive materials.
