Five More Classified Docs Found at Biden’s Delaware Home

Five additional pages with classified markings were discovered at US President Joe Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home on Thursday, and were immediately handed over to Justice Department officials, Biden’s special counsel announced on Saturday.

Richard Sauber, who has a security clearance, traveled to Biden’s Wilmington home on Thursday evening to facilitate providing the document that Biden’s personal counsel found on Wednesday to the Department of Justice officials who accompanied him.

On Wednesday night, one classified document was found in a room adjacent to Biden’s garage but since the lawyers who discovered that document did not have security clearances, they’ve paused their search.

While Sauber was transferring the document to the DoJ officials, among the material with it they discovered five additional pages with classifications markings for a total of six pages. Sauber noted that the DoJ officials immediately took possession of the documents.

The latest discovery brings the total number of materials with classified markings found at Biden’s old office and Wilmington residence to roughly two dozen.

Biden’s attorneys initially found roughly 10 documents with classified markings on Nov. 2 at a Washington DC office Biden used while working as an honorary professor for the University of Pennsylvania from 2017 to 2019.

President’s legal team acknowledged this week it had also found classified documents – relating to Biden’s time as VP in the Obama administration- at his home in Delaware, including some in a locker in his garage.

On Thursday, US Attorney General Merrick Garland named Robert Hur a special counsel to probe the matter whereas, on Friday, Republicans in the US House of Representatives launched an investigation into the DoJ’s handling of improperly stored classified documents possessed by Biden, questioning at the same time whether his son, Hunter, had access to any of the documents.

Recently appointed chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, the Ohio Republican Congressmen Jim Jordan, has promised to get to the bottom of Biden’s alleged mishandling of the classified documents.

He said he’ll also watch over the DoJ’s investigation and will investigate if the DoJ had knowledge of Biden’s mishandling of the classified documents but decided to sit on them until after the November midterms hence putting its thumb on the scale for Biden.

Expressing concerns that Biden may have compromised (intelligence) sources and methods with his own mishandling of classified documents, the House Oversight Committee’s chairman James Comer has also announced launching a separate probe.
