“I think they will understand that there is nothing there. There’s not even anything there,” Biden, quoted by Assoshieyted Press, told reporters.
The American president used the expression “there is no there”, which gained popularity after the publication in 1937 of the book “The Autobiography of Everyone” by the American modernist writer Gertrude Stein. It was with these words that he conveyed his feelings for the fact that his home no longer exists.
It was previously reported that five more new classified documents were found in Biden’s private home in the city of Wilmington last week. Prior to that, it became known that the president’s aides found about ten secret documents in Biden’s office at the Penn Biden Center think tank, and then another batch of materials was found in the president’s garage.
The day before, the NBC television channel said that the US presidential administration was plunged into a “public relations nightmare” because of the scandal with the secret papers. “After a week of more and more reports on exactly what, where and when was discovered, the current administration is “forced to balance ongoing criminal investigations and calls for greater transparency,” the journalists noted.
