The White House announced this Saturday that new classified documents were found at President Joe Biden’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware on Thursday. Specifically, there are six new secret pages dating from the time when he was vice president with Barack Obama, from 2009 to 2017.
A White House lawyer, Richard Sauber, damaged the Wilmington residence on Thursday and found the additional documents to those that had already been confirmed, the agency said in a statement.
Biden’s personal attorneys initially found a document with a classified mark Wednesday in an ancillary room to the garage and abandoned the property registry because they did not have security clearance. The next day Sauber, authorized White House counsel, came in and found the documents in a new registry.
The news comes two days after the United States Secretary of Justice, Merrick Garland, announced the appointment of a special prosecutor who will study all the classified papers that have been found in the homes and offices of President Biden.
The US attorney general made the announcement after the White House and Biden himself confirmed the discovery of new classified documents on Thursday, the second confirmation of its kind this week.
Today’s is, therefore, the third and, as Sauber explained, what was found are six additional pages with classification marks. In the search he was accompanied by Justice Department officials, who “immediately took possession of them.”
The last time Biden referred to the issue was Thursday, when he assured that the incident was going to be solved: “Everything is going to be cleared up, I’m sure,” the president pointed out about a case that reminds, although with many differences, of the Classified papers found in former President Donald Trump’s mansion.
