What is Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden hiding about his time in the Senate?
The American people may soon find out.
Government watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against the University of Delaware demanding the release of Biden’s Senate records.

There has long been speculation that Biden’s Senate records may shed light on allegations of sexual assault and on troubling votes he cast throughout his career — including votes that fought the desegregation of busing.
The University of Delaware, however, has reportedly claimed it may delay the release of Biden’s records for years given his ongoing involvement in public life.
But according to Judicial Watch, the university has no such right. In fact, Judicial Watch believes that, as a public institution, the university can not refuse to release the records — it would be in violation of the Freedom of Information Act.
Ironically, according to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, Congressional records are typically exempt from FOIA requests. But by providing his Senate records to a publicly-funded institution like the University of Delaware, Biden made it possible for them to be pursued through FOIA.
Another Biden gaffe? Of course, it’s not the first.
“These are documents that ought to be disclosed to the American people under law,” Fitton said.

Fitton also pointed out that former Biden staffer Tara Reade has accused Biden of sexual assault and maintained that evidence of this incident would likely be found in his records.
Releasing Biden’s records is clearly in the public interest … but, so far, the University of Delaware isn’t budging.
But the Judicial Watch lawsuit could change all of that. And don’t be surprised if that makes Biden very nervous.
