Presumptive Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden said his sealed Senate records at the University of Delaware should remain unveiled because he is "running for public office." Biden told MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin could be "taken out of context" or used as campaign fodder.
"The fact is, that there’s a lot of things that of speeches I’ve made, positions I’ve taken, interviews that I did overseas with people, all of those things relating to my job. And the idea that they would be made public and the fact while I was running for public office, they could be really taken out of context. The papers are position papers, they are documents that existed and that for example when I go, when I met with Putin or when I met with whomever. And all of that to be fodder in a campaign at this time," Biden said Friday.
