The US President is under increasing pressure: Confidential documents that actually should be in the National Archives have been found again about Joe Biden.
Washington – In the search for government documents, more secret documents were found in the private rooms of US President Joe Biden.
The US Department of Justice has seized six classified documents from Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, from his time as vice president and in the Senate, Biden’s attorney Bob Bauer said Saturday. The search had already been carried out on Friday and included “all work, living and storage rooms” in the house. Investigators were given “unrestricted access” to the home.
The pressure on Biden is growing. Just last weekend news broke that another five pages of confidential government documents had been found in Biden’s private quarters in Delaware. Documents had previously been discovered there and in Biden’s private quarters in the capital, Washington. The White House only admitted this after media reports.
The documents date, among other things, from Biden’s time as Barack Obama’s vice president from 2009 to 2017. The White House has repeatedly stressed that Biden’s lawyers immediately turned the documents over to the National Archives, which is responsible for storage. Attorney General Merrick Garland, a Biden appointee, hired a special investigator to look into the incident. dpa
