As with any politician during any election, Joe Biden made a lot of promises on his way to the White House, the most oft-repeated of which was that he would be a President for “all Americans” – a promise that seemed to indicate that this was going to be an open, forthcoming administration.
After all, how can anyone work for everyone while disclosing nothing?
Well, as with so many promises mades by our elected officials, Biden’s seeming air of openness has faded quickly, and a government watchdog group is now taking him to task over it.
A White House official told Fox News that the administration does not plan to share the names of attendees of virtual White House meetings — which have become the norm amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A White House official also told Politico on Monday it would not release virtual logs.
“Virtual meetings will not be subject to release — in the same way that previous administrations didn’t release phone logs — but we’re planning on regularly releasing the attendee lists for in-person meetings at the White House,” the official told Politico.
There have long been concerns about Joe Biden and his family’s business history, particularly as it pertains to overseas entities such as China and Ukraine. There is little doubt that Biden’s unwillingness to release these records could spur further speculation on that subject.
