The University of Delaware has SEALED Joe Biden's Senate records as long as he is in & # 39; public life & # 39; – making it difficult to trace his correspondence with the southern block of the Senate
- Biden donated his senate records to the University of Delaware eight years ago
- He spent decades in the Senate and was a key figure in foreign policy
- His recent comments about working with senate segregationists brought new attention to his honors list
- School initially said the records would be made public this year
- Records now closed until Biden & # 39; retires & # 39;
The University of Delaware keeps a wealth of documents and information about the career of the senate of former vice president Joe Biden under wraps under a policy that will protect it during his presidential campaign and possibly beyond.
Biden donated a large number of reports from his senate to the University of Delaware eight years ago.
If he was retired and his career ended, scientists might sift through them. But the school seems to have adjusted the conditions for release this year, because Biden has started the presidential course.
According to an initial agreement, the documents had to be & # 39; two years after Biden retired from a public office & # 39; stay.
Senate registers of former vice president Joe Biden, remain sealed at the University of Delaware
Now the Washington Post has reported, the school says the record will be sealed until Biden "retires from public life" or after December 31, 2019.
& # 39; The entire collection is unavailable & # 39 ;, spokeswoman Andrea Boyle Tippett, a school spokeswoman, told Biden & # 39; s alma mater, on the newspaper. "The content becomes available, as the website indicates, when Mr. Biden retires from public life."
She also pointed to his current campaign, where he is the forerunner. "While he is working, he is in public life."
The effect of the policy makes it more difficult, not only for scholars to start investigating, but also for the press to investigate Biden's earlier work with a series of Senate figures – including segregationists. Biden brought his earlier work to the fore, even with figures he disagreed with, at a fundraiser in New York.
California's Sen. Kamala Harris accused him at the first democratic debate for his statements and his earlier views on the school bus.
With a collection of 1875 boxes of material plus digital files, the documents could contain additional material that could give Biden political headaches.
