According to reports, Judicial Watch is gearing up to blow the case wide open on an incident in 2009 that Biden and the Secret Service seem eager to keep buried.
Judicial Watch has filed a FOIA request for records on a physical altercation between a Secret Service Agent and Joe Biden at a photo op in 2009 where Biden reportedly groped the breasts of the agent’s girlfriend.
The records on this incident were apparently “destroyed” by the Secret Service due to “retention standards.”

Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, made on May 12, 2020, sought:
All records related to a reported incident in 2009 in which a United States Secret Service Agent reportedly was involved in an altercation with, or attempted to strike, then Vice President Joe Biden during a photo opportunity.
The records sought shall include, but not be limited to, witness statements, the Agent’s statement, victim’s statement, alleged perpetrator’s statement, incident reports, investigative reports, communications among USSS personnel regarding the incident, and disciplinary records related to the incident for the Agent in question.
In a July 13, 2020 response to Judicial Watch’s request, the Secret Service appeared to confirm that a file on the alleged incident existed at some point, asserting, “[T]here are no responsive records or documents pertaining to your request in our files,” because “the above mentioned file(s) has been destroyed” due to “retention standards.” The Secret Service added that, “[n]o additional information is available.” It did not deny the incident had occurred. In its lawsuit, Judicial Watch intends to test the Secret Service’s assertion that it destroyed all records about the incident.
“We had not been able to confirm whether the report about the alleged altercation might be true until the Secret Service itself suggested it destroyed records about the incident,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Why is verification necessary? Just do like the liberal media does and run the story, embellish it with “eye witness accounts” from “anonymous sources” and print it. At least the Secret Service confirmed SOMETHING was destroyed and it related to Biden’s groping.
At any rate, thank you, Judicial Watch for protecting liberty. If only the rest of the media could do journalism.
It is well known that biden, while VP, would meander through the VP residence inside and out nude on a regular basis.
When this occurrence would happen, the secret service had a code name so personnel would not find themselves in his proximity.
The code blasted through the agents IFB’s was “Cobra, Cobra”
@Deplorable Me: Because in my business career I have met both royalty and those who think they are it’s a dang good thing Biden never met me with my daughter in tow. Biden grabbing my little girl would have woken up in a hospital with me most likely headed to prison for a very violent assault.
