Additional Documents Marked as Classified Found at Biden's Delaware Residence
This discovery is the latest to call into question Biden's handling of secret information

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Additional pages marked as classified were found at President Biden's Wilmington, Del., residence and have been given to the Justice Department, the White House counsel said Saturday, the latest revelation over the handling of classified information that has emerged this week.

The documents were discovered after Mr. Biden's attorneys said earlier that some classified material, likely dating from his time as vice president, had been found in his garage at the residence in December.

One document marked as classified also was found at his residence earlier this week, the White House had said. In addition, documents marked as classified were found at his office  at a Washington think tank  in November.

In a statement Saturday, Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, said he accompanied Justice Department officials to Wilmington on Thursday to retrieve the initial document from the residence—and during that process “five additional pages with classification markings” were found among the material, bringing the total to six pages discovered this week.

All material was immediately taken into possession by the Justice Department, Mr. Sauber said. The Justice Department declined to comment Saturday.

The revelations come after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur, a former U.S. attorney during the Trump administration,  as special counsel  to examine why classified documents were found at both Mr. Biden’s home and the office he used at the think tank.

Aides had found documents with classified markings at the think tank, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, on Nov. 2, and turned them over to the National Archives.

Mr. Biden’s team has said the material was inadvertently misplaced.

House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York said Saturday on Twitter, “House Republicans will hold  Joe Biden ’s DOJ & FBI accountable for their double standard of justice and uncover the TRUTH about why Biden has been allowed to be so irresponsible with classified documents for so long.”

Some current and former aides have said then-Vice President Biden’s departure from the White House in January 2017 was  marked by a rush to pack up documents  and other belongings amid an intense stretch of domestic and international travel and a series of official events.

Bob Bauer, Mr. Biden’s personal attorney, also issued a statement Saturday providing more detail on the latest discoveries.

Mr. Bauer said the president’s personal attorneys conducted searches of Mr. Biden’s residences after the records from the Obama administration were found at the Penn Biden Center.

Because they don’t have security clearances, Mr. Biden’s attorneys notified the government when a document with classified markings was found and cleared the area. As a result, he said, “the President’s personal attorneys don’t know the precise number of pages in the discovered material, nor have they reviewed the content of the documents, consistent with standard procedures and requirements.”

The Biden administration has faced criticism for not disclosing the initial discovery when it happened in November—or when further documents were discovered in December. The White House confirmed news reports about the initial discoveries earlier this week and said it was being transparent, but repeatedly declined to offer specifics.

Revelations about additional documents found, and the appointment of a special counsel, have  distracted from the White House’s efforts  to highlight declining inflation and Mr. Biden’s legislative agenda.

The Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Rep. James Comer (R., Ky.), sent a letter to the White House on Friday, saying his panel was investigating “Mr. Biden’s pattern of mishandling classified materials” and requesting the retrieved documents and a list of locations that were searched.

The use of the word "transparent" by the Biden handlers seems to be limited to informing the National Archives and/or the DOJ. It certainly doesn't extend to the American people. Biden's handing of classified information had been all but hidden from the public during the 2022 midterm elections. Now we have a slow drip of information coming out about more documents. I hope our critical thinkers haven't jumped the gun again in describing Biden's mishandling of documents as so much different than that of the former President.

Another question that needs to be addressed is why the National Archives knew immediately what documents Trump took, but never knew what documents Biden took?

Or why the DOJ leaked like a sieve when it was the Trump documents, but was tight as a drum on Biden's documents during the last election?

The only answers we will be getting for the time being are:

Everyone knows I take classified documents seriously

and

I refer you to the DOJ  (who will say "we can't comment on an ongoing investigation')

When even Uber democrat Andrew Weissman has questions:

The WH keeps digging a hole deeper: they have failed to answer so many questions, which is very strange if this is all an innocent mistake. -Total number of government docs found and precisely where; and what levels of classification? -Why wasn't this all revealed in Nov/Dec?

Donald Trump claimed openly that he had a right to have the classified documents in his personal possession " I can declassify them by thinking about them". 

To say these two instances are equivalent is the same nonsense we get from the right every single day.

In a way you are correct.

Trump, no matter if you believe he declassified the documents or not, had the authority to do so. Biden did not.

Trump had his documents for about a year before he was raided by the FBI. Biden had his documents for 6 years and never got raided. In addition, Trump kept his documents in one location at Mar a Largo. Biden moved his documents around the country several times, many ending up in a CCP controlled office at Penn and a truly unsecure garage and in his house.

There really is no true equivalency with this, with the exception that both presidents had classified information in their possession.

Doesn't matter.

Bottom line is he had a right to declassify documents.

Brandon did not.

Trump has some form of defense as to why he had the documents.

Brandon simply stole classified documents.

Here is something for you to not read....

Under the U.S. Constitution, the president as commander in chief is given broad powers to classify and declassify such information, often through use of executive orders.

Now, go ahead and tell us how much of a right wing rag the ABA is. We know it's coming.

I know the media is going to pound home the point that there was a difference in attitude. Jonathan Karl said it about a dozen times on "This Week" only hours ago.

So some will cling to that thought while others will feel there is a double standard. Let us not forget that Hillary Clinton was another who violated the Act.

Maybe the democrats will find a way to pull it off again.

Let us not forget that Hillary Clinton was another who violated the Act.

She literally set up an entire computer network to avoid record keeping laws, lied about having authority to do so, and destroyed records after they were subpoenaed. 

No one else is in her ballpark as far as "intent".  .

I didn't ask YOU for the citation.  

Then maybe you shouldn't participate in a public chat board.  You asked for citation on HRC's home email server and I gave you a link to an article written 1.5 years after it was discovered that distilled down the FBI reports and everything else publicly known about the situation and delivered a lengthy but detailed explanation of what and why.  At least providing the information is better than a "nah uh" response.

So where are the FBI raids? There needs to be a raid at each and every Brandon office, residence, and place he frequented. The fact that the DOJ and FBI are trusting a Brandon hand picked sanitation team is ridiculous. "These documents aren't that sensitive, we can release them. These documents are too sensitive, we have to destroy them. We have no fucking idea where these came from, so we will blame Trump for them. Our lemmings will believe anything."

Get the FBI off their collective asses. Pull some of them away from tracking down and conducting raids on Jan 6th rioters; and do their fucking job. Brandon's sanitation team can go work at the nearest trash dump.
