Biden Says Papers Can’t Be Released While ‘Running for Public Office’; Demanded Trump’s Tax Returns

By

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday morning that the papers from his Senate career could not be released while he was seeking public office because of the risk they could be used politically against him.

However, Biden, like other Democrats, has demanded that President Donald Trump release his tax returns.

Biden appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to address allegations of sexual assault by former aide Tara Reade, who has filed a police report in Washington, DC, based on an incident she said happened in the Senate in 1993.

He denied her accusations.

Biden told President Trump in October 2019: “Release your tax returns or shut up.”

As Breitbart News has reported, the University of Delaware changed its criteria for the Biden archive on April 24, 2019 — the day before Biden launched his presidential campaign — such that “documents would now be made public on Dec. 31 or ‘two years’ after the former vice president ‘retires from public life.’ At the time, the university provided no definition for what it considered ‘public life,’ leaving open the final date for release.”
