The U.S. president is one of the most well-protected, closely monitored personages in the world. And that extends to those coming in and out of his orbit.
Yet, the U.S. Secret Service, the agency in charge of President Joe Biden’s personal security, claims it double-checked and found no records of who is visiting the incumbent POTUS in Delaware where he spends a lot of his time, a determination that defies common sense.
In an appeal of an initial denial, the New York Post unsuccessfully attempted to access visitor log information, which should be public, through a Freedom of Information Act request.
According to the Post, Secret Service deputy director Faron Paramore wrote to the news outlet that “the agency conducted an additional search of relevant program offices for potentially responsive records. This search also produced no responsive records. Accordingly, your appeal is denied.”

“The Post is evaluating legal options to acquire records of who visited the president during the nearly 200 days he was at his Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach homes,” the news outlet added.
Against the backdrop of alleged Biden family wheeling and dealing, U.S. Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the chair in waiting of the House Oversight Committee if the GOP wins back control of Congress, is not buying it.
“The claim that there are no visitor logs for President Biden’s Delaware residence is a bunch of malarkey. Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with [his son] Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president.”
Added U.S. Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.), “This administration’s stonewalling and gaslighting must stop. Next year, House Republicans will conduct a fair and transparent investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling and deliver the American people the answers they deserve.”
The younger Biden, of laptop from hell fame, is reportedly under investigation by the U.S. Attorney in Delaware (perhaps the only Trump-appointed holdover at that level whom Joe Biden didn’t eventually fire after taking office,) for alleged influence-peddling in Ukraine, China, and elsewhere.
A grand jury has reportedly been empaneled as part of the probe into possible tax fraud and other potential wrongdoing. Both Bidens have denied any impropriety.

“Transparency advocates of varying political stripes have fought in court for decades to identify presidential influencers, saying it’s important for the public to know who shapes government policy. Biden’s detractors, meanwhile, note that he made a habit of meeting with his family’s influence-seeking international business partners before he took office and question whether that remains the case,” the Post observed.
As a practical matter, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton insisted that “If the Secret Service is doing its job, there has to be visitor records. If there aren’t any records, the scandal is much bigger than just a lack of transparency.”
After getting away with spending most of the 2020 presidential campaign in his Delaware basement, Joe Biden, 79, has “spent about 28% of the days during his first year as president at least partially in Delaware, largely out of public view. He has spent an almost identical share of his second year as president in Delaware,” the Post asserted.
