Since the release of Prince Harry‘s controversial memoir Spare, it seems like another issue has popped up as a result of it. We’ve heard about the family feuds and allegedly heated responses, but it appears Harry is also receiving retribution from the United States, as is Joe Biden’s administration.
For those who are unaware, Harry said in his memoir that he used drugs such as cocaine, cannabis, and magic mushrooms. This immediately sparked controversy, with many asking how he obtained his visa so readily. According to the Telegraph, several sources have stated that Harry was honest about his drug usage in his visa application, which only created further doubts.
As a result, many people think he received special treatment, and some groups have gone so far as to get information from his US visa application. However, the most recent attempt to get these facts through Freedom of Information laws was rejected, leading many to accuse Biden’s administration of “stonewalling” the scandal.
Director of the Margaret Thatcher Centre for Freedom at the Heritage Foundation Nile Gardiner said: “The Biden administration is clearly stonewalling here and they are trying to avoid releasing any documents. They are trying to do so by undermining the credibility of the British Press, which is outrageous, and by concentrating their fire on the British Press even though we have submitted articles in the US press about the same subject.”
The Heritage Foundation recently requested that a judge reconsider this decision, and they are fighting for more information regarding this application.
The Heritage Foundation requested these documents in March, saying that “admissions of drug use are grounds for inadmissibility in visa applications,” according to the Telegraph.
