Biden’s aides open classified documents in a separate location
According to NBC News, aides to President Joe Biden found classified documents elsewhere in his possession.
The report did not say where or when the new documents were discovered, but it is clear that the White House is trying to clean up Biden’s record ahead of a potential re-election bid in 2024.
The newly discovered documents are located separately from the private office attached to the University of Pennsylvania think tank that Biden held in Washington, where the first batch of classified information was found.
On Tuesday, Biden said he was “surprised” to find the classified documents in his possession and reiterated that he was unaware of their content.
“I learned about this news and I was surprised to learn that there are government documents brought into this office,” Biden said during a press conference in Mexico City, responding to the news for the first time.
“I don’t know what’s in the documents,” he continued. “My lawyers didn’t advise me not to ask what the documents were about.”
Biden also said there are “boxes” of documents that were turned over to the archives on Tuesday.
The White House has withheld further information about the documents, which were first released days before the 2022 midterm elections.
White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre even declined to confirm whether Biden’s aides were checking his other properties for classified documents.
