The Wall Street Journal: Biden aides find more classified documents at second location

0

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden’s aides have found additional classified documents in a second location beyond those discovered in November at a Washington office Biden used after his vice presidency, a person familiar with the issue said Wednesday.

It couldn’t immediately be determined where or when the additional documents were found. The White House didn’t respond to requests for comment about the second batch of records, which was reported earlier by NBC News. A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment.

News of the existence of the classified documents has fueled Republican attacks and bipartisan calls for congressional scrutiny, but the White House has repeatedly declined to provide additional details about the matter.

During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, before news of the new set of documents broke, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre didn’t answer questions about when the president was first briefed on the discovery of the documents, why the public wasn’t informed earlier and whether other classified documents were improperly handled.
