Secret US papers discovered in a former Biden office – Last Hour

(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, Jan. 09 – Several classified documents from when Joe Biden was vice president of the United States were found by his lawyers in a desk he used at the Ben Biden Center, a think tank in Washington, when he was professor emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania (2017-2019). ). The US media reported it.

This discovery dates back to November 2, just before the midterm elections. That same day, Biden’s lawyers notified the National Archives, which acquired the materials and notified the investigating Justice Department. The news has caused much embarrassment in the White House, because it comes as the department is also investigating the vast amount of classified materials discovered at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. In the case of Biden, it would be about a dozen documents that were on file with other unclassified papers that were promptly returned, but the “forgetfulness” raises more than a few questions. According to a CBS source, it wouldn’t contain nuclear secrets anyway. The president’s lawyers discovered them as they were packing documents inside a locked safe to free up office space that Biden was using at the time. “The White House is cooperating with the National Archives and the Department of Justice in the discovery of what appear to be Obama-Biden administration documents, including a small number of documents marked classified,” said Richard Sauber, a Biden special counsel. “The documents have not been subject to any prior request or investigation by the National Archives,” unlike Trump.
