Classified Materials Discovered at Biden's Delaware Home

Sauber explained that when Biden's attorneys identified one classified document at home on Wednesday, they stopped searching for additional documents as they lacked the necessary security clearances to view them.

He went to the residence on Thursday evening to provide the document to the Justice Department and discovered five more pages with classification markings among the material. The Justice Department officials with him immediately took possession of them.

Republicans Accuse Biden of Mishandling Classified Materials

Additional classified documents were found in Biden's garage, and at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C. This has led to accusations from Republicans that Biden mishandled classified materials, similar to former President Trump. However, Democrats dispute this comparison.

House Judiciary Committee Launches Investigation

On Monday, the White House revealed for the first time that documents with classified markings were discovered in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement on November 2, 2022. These were immediately turned over to the National Archives. The House Judiciary Committee will conduct its investigation into the matter.
