More Classified Docs Found At Biden’s Delaware Home: Report

The White House on Saturday revealed that more classified documents from the Obama administration were found in President Joe Biden’s Delaware residence this week — in addition to the two batches that were previously disclosed, according to multiple reports.

This brings the total batches of records found to three: a “small” number in a Washington office Biden used, another set in the garage of his residence, and finally six pages in a room adjacent to the garage.

White House lawyer Richard Sauber uncovered the newest documents on Thursday in a box initially discovered by the president’s personal lawyers on Wednesday, CNN reported.

“The President’s personal attorneys discovered one document with a classified marking consisting of one page in a room adjacent to the garage. At that point, the President’s personal attorneys stopped searching the immediate area where the document was found,” Sauber said.

Sauber said that he reviewed the box further on Thursday, found five more documents with classification markings, and immediately transferred them to Justice Department officials.

“Because I have a security clearance, I went to Wilmington Thursday evening to facilitate providing the document the President’s personal counsel found on Wednesday to the Justice Department,” Sauber said before adding: “While I was transferring it to the DOJ officials who accompanied me, five additional pages with classification markings were discovered among the material with it, for a total of six pages. The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of them.”

The discoveries have trickled out over the past week — beginning on Monday, followed by an acknowledgment on Thursday and then the announcement on Saturday — stoking Biden’s critics and causing alarm among his allies that his office doesn’t have a handle on the problem.
