According to an NBC News story, President Joe Biden’s aides have found additional sensitive materials in his hands at a different location.
Although the story does not specify where or when the additional documents were found, it is obvious that the White House is making an effort to clean up Biden’s records in preparation for a potential reelection bid in 2024.
The most recent batch of classified information was found in a different location than the private office Biden held in Washington, DC, which was associated with a University of Pennsylvania think group.
Asserting his ignorance of their contents, Biden said on Tuesday that he was “surprised” that secret documents had been discovered in his hands.
At a press conference in Mexico City, Biden responded to the revelation for the first time, saying, “I was briefed about this discovery and astonished to see that there are any government records that were moved there to that location.”
He continued, “I don’t know what’s in the docs. My attorneys have not advised me not to inquire as to what documents they were.”
Additionally, Biden stated on Tuesday that “boxes” of records had been given to the archives.
Any further information regarding the records, which were first uncovered just days before the 2022 midterm elections, has been rebuffed by the White House.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, declined to even confirm that Biden’s aides were looking through his other homes for any potentially sensitive information.
