More classified documents found at Biden’s Wilmington home, White House counsel says

'Quick read' news summary

Five more classified documents have been found at President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, according to a new statement from White House counsel Richard Suaber.

Suaber said the personal attorneys for the president, who do not have security clearances, stopped searching the residence after discovering a document Wednesday with a classified marking in a room adjacent to the garage.

“Because I have a security clearance, I went to Wilmington Thursday evening to facilitate providing the document the President’s personal counsel found on Wednesday to the Justice Department,” Suaber said. “While I was transferring it to the DOJ officials who accompanied me, five additional pages with classification markings were discovered among the material with it, for a total of six pages. The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of them.”

This latest set adds to the discovery of classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president at his previous office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington and in his garage in the Wilmington residence.

This week, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed former Maryland U.S. Attorney Robert Hur as special counsel to lead the investigation into the handling of the classified records.

Suaber reiterated Saturday that the White House will cooperate with the special counsel.
