President Joe Biden is in hot water after the location of the second batch of classified documents was revealed by the White House. Biden’s team just admitted they were found in the garage of one of his Delaware homes.
The White House Counsel’s Office searched Biden’s two residences in Rehoboth Beach and Wilmington, Delaware after Obama-era classified documents were found at the Penn Biden Center think tank in Washington, D.C.
White House lawyers say they immediately contacted the Department of Justice when they discovered the documents. Biden’s lawyers issued a statement that said:
“As we stated, previously, we are fully cooperating with the national archives and the Department of Justice in a process to ensure that any Obama-Biden administration records are appropriately in possession of the archives.
“Following this discovery of government documents at the Penn Biden Center in, November 2022, and coordinating closely with the Department of Justice, the president’s lawyers have searched the president, Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware residences, the other locations where files from this presidential office might have been shipped in the course of the 2017 transition.
“The lawyers completed the review last night.
“During the review, the lawyers discovered among personal and political papers a small number of additional Obama-Biden administration records with classified markings.
“All but one of these documents were found in the storage space in the President’s Wilmington residence garage.
“One document consisting of one page was discovered among store materials in an adjacent room.
“No documents were found in the middle of the Rehoboth beachhouse residence.
“As was done in the case of the Biden-Penn center, the Department of Justice was immediately notified and the lawyers arranged for the Department of Justice to take possession of these documents.
“The White The White House will continue to cooperate with the review by the Department of Justice.”

Worth noting that the President seems to have absconded with more classified documents than many whistleblowers. For comparison, Reality Winner was sentenced to 5 YEARS for just one document.
Meanwhile Biden, Trump, Clinton, Petraeus… these guys have dozens, hundreds. No jail.
