OOPS: Biden Caught Flatfooted After Classified Docs Found In His Garage

President Joe Biden’s aides have located additional documents with classified markings at two locations inside the president’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House counsel’s office said Thursday.

According to CNN, the documents were located in a storage area in Biden’s garage and an adjacent room, the statement reads. Biden frequently spends weekends at the home, located in a wealthy, wooded enclave on a lake.

Speaking Thursday, Biden struggled to explain how the documents ended up in his garage but said they were in a “locked garage” and that he was cooperating fully with the Department of Justice.

“It’s not like they’re sitting out on the street,” he insisted when a reported asked why he was storing classified material next to a sports car.

Biden said he was going “to get a chance to speak on all of this, God willing, soon.”

The documents were located following a search of the president’s homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. No classified documents were located in the Rehoboth property, the statement said. The documents were found “among personal and political papers.”

The discovery of the classified documents in his former office in November set off alarm bells inside the White House, where only a small circle of advisers and lawyers were aware of the matter.

An effort was launched to search other locations where documents from Biden’s time as vice president may have been stored.
