In addition to yesterday’s news that President Biden’s lawyers turned over classified-marked documents to the National Archives after they had been discovered in a locked closet at the University of Pennsylvania, we are now learning that another batch of classified documents has been discovered:
Aides to President Joe Biden have discovered at least one additional batch of classified documents in a location separate from the Washington office he used after leaving the Obama administration, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Since November, after the discovery of documents with classified markings in his former office, Biden aides have been searching for any additional classified materials that might be in other locations he used, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details about the ongoing inquiry.
The report points out that we do not know the classification level of the documents, exactly where the additional documents were located, or when the additional documents were discovered.
Neither the White House nor the Department of Justice have commented on this new revelation.
I’ll update the post when we learn something new.
UPDATE: The White House confirms that the documents with classified markings were found in President Biden’s garage:
In a statement released on Twitter, Special Counsel to the President Richard Sauber said the documents were found during a search for documents in Biden’s two Delaware homes.
“All but one of these documents were found in storage space in the president’s Wilmington residence garage. One document consisting of one page was discovered among stored materials in an adjacent room,” Sauber said.
