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.
