For presumptive 2024 Republican Nominee Donald Trump, the current scandal engulfing the White House brings with it some poetic justice.
It was only a matter of a few scant months ago that Trump himself was at the center of a salacious story about his storing of allegedly-classified materials at his Mar-a-Lago estate, (documents he maintains were declassified by he himself).
Now, as President Joe Biden continues to stumble through the reality of a rather similar but much grander scandal, Trump is ready to pounce.
Former President Donald Trump is speaking out Monday after the White House Counsel’s Office announced there are no visitor logs for President Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, calling the garage where Biden’s lawyers discovered a stash of classified documents “flimsy, unlocked, and unsecured.”
The remark comes as Biden is currently facing a special counsel investigation into his handling of classified documents after at least two stashes were found at his Wilmington home and a pro-Biden think tank in Washington, D.C.
“The White House just announced that there are no LOGS or information of any kind on visitors to the Wilmington house and flimsy, unlocked, and unsecured, but now very famous, garage. Maybe they are smarter than we think!” Trump wrote on his Truth Social account.
And then also:
“This is one of seemingly many places where HIGHLY CLASSIFIED documents are stored (in a big pile on the damp floor),” he added.
The footage of the purported storage situation was all over Twitter.

The situation has created a great deal of mistrust among Americans, and completely nullified any liberal attack against Trump for the Mar-a-Lago document incident.
