USA: New confidential documents found in Joe Biden’s house

Five more pages of confidential documents were found in Joe Biden’s family home, the White House announced on Saturday, Jan. 14.

A new twist on a very sensitive matter for the American President. Five more pages of confidential documents were found in Joe Biden’s family home, the White House announced on Saturday, Jan. 14.

These documents, dating from Joe Biden’s vice presidency from 2009 to 2017, were found in a room next to the garage after the presidency’s attorney, Richard Sauber, arrived on Thursday evening, the latter specified in a press release. He says he went to this opulent Wilmington, Delaware, east residence to oversee the transmission to the judiciary of a first set of confidential documents found at the scene Wednesday.

Richard Sauber recalls that when the President’s personal attorneys searched the house on Wednesday, they found a page marked confidential in this room next to the garage. Because these lawyers did not have the necessary authorizations to see this type of document, they did not pursue their investigations any further and warned the Justice Department, the White House Council specifies.

A PROSECUTOR APPOINTED TO INVESTIGATE

A 1978 law requires US presidents and vice presidents to send all their emails, letters, and other working documents to the National Archives. Richard Sauber, who is authorized to see confidential documents, found five more pages upon arrival, for a total of six pages, and says the Justice Department officials accompanying him took possession of them “immediately”.

In addition to the files found in this private home, other secret documents were discovered last November at the Penn Biden Center, a think tank in Washington where Joe Biden once had an office, and were also handed over to the judiciary. On Thursday, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed an independent prosecutor to investigate the case.

The White House immediately shared the files found in Wilmington, but only confirmed the discovery of those who were in Washington last Monday, two months later. Matters are very sensitive for Joe Biden as he seeks re-election.

In particular, she recalls that, despite many disagreements on the matter, former President Donald Trump is also a target of the judiciary for bringing official documents to his Florida residence.
