Judge Jeanine Pirro echoed comments President Biden made Thursday after being asked about his growing classified documents scandal, saying the latest comments remind her of things she heard in court.
Biden said on Thursday “there is no ‘there’ there” regarding the alleged mishandling of classified documents at his Greenville, Del., home and former University of Pennsylvania office.
“I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets. I’m following what the lawyers have told me. They want me to do exactly what we’re doing. There’s no ‘there’ there,” Biden told reporters.
In “The Five”, Pirro said that, in reality, “there’s a lot in there”.

“It reminds me of every defendant I’ve ever sued: ‘There’s no ‘there’ there,'” she said on “The Five” on Friday. “Here’s what’s there: Mike Davis wrote a great article in Newsweek, and he talks about theft being a federal crime. I think it’s section 793 of the federal code. And he talks about the fact that this is, you You know, [a] ‘blame your secretary’ [situation]. Give me some time.”
Pirro likened the last reported excuse as akin to an office worker having an extramarital affair with his secretary, who later tells his wife that his adultery was the secretary’s fault.
“Here’s the thing about these classified documents,” she added. “Like I said, he had no claim on them. He wasn’t president. He couldn’t disqualify them.”
The documents date back to Biden’s time as vice president. Pirro noted a time gap between the end of the Obama-Biden administration and the establishment of the Penn Biden Center in Washington, where the first installment of documents was discovered in November.

She noted reports that the University of Pennsylvania had received funding — though not necessarily for the center itself — from the Chinese government, tying that alleged situation to Hunter Biden’s alleged commercial comfort with companies linked to the Chinese Communist Party.
“His son made millions from the Chinese, the same son who complained about having to pay his father’s bills and paying $50,000 a month, which apparently, according to Miranda Devine, is the same amount of money he received from China. in one of his businesses”, said Pirro. She added that, unlike the status of former President Trump’s document, Biden did not have the same disqualifying influence as a sitting president while vice president.

As for UPenn, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., invited University President M. Elizabeth Magill to provide data on “anonymous Chinese donations reported to UPenn and the Penn Biden Center.”
“The Committee learned that UPenn received millions of dollars from anonymous Chinese sources, with a sharp increase in donations when then-former Vice President Biden was announced as leader of the Penn Biden Center initiative. Following the formation of the Penn Biden Center, the donations from China tripled and continued as Joe Biden explored a possible run for the presidency,” the Committee said in a statement on its website.
A UPenn spokesperson told the institution’s West Philadelphia newspaper, The Daily Pennsylvanian, that it is “important to reiterate that the Penn Biden Center has never solicited or received gifts from any Chinese or foreign entity.”
