Earlier just this very week, President Joe Biden was hit with some nearly unbelievable news that he only made worse with his response.
Staffers examining one of the offices that Biden used during his time as Barack Obama’s Vice President appeared to contain a tranche of classified documents, unbeknownst to any authority that should have been aware.
To make matters worse, Biden himself suggested that he had no idea the documents were there, leaving American imaginations to run wild as to how they ended up in his old office to begin with.
Then, adding insult to injury, it happened again.
Aides to President Joe Biden have discovered at least one additional batch of classified documents in a location separate from the Washington office he used after leaving the Obama administration, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Since November, after the discovery of documents with classified markings in his former office, Biden aides have been searching for any additional classified materials that might be in other locations he used, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details about the ongoing inquiry.
The White House did not reply to a request for comment. The Justice Department had no comment.
The GOP was quick to pounce on the news, particularly after the Democrats made such a wild fuss about Donald Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified intel.
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., reacted on social media minutes after the NBC News report on the new documents, tweeting out the words “Special counsel.”
The first batch of discovered documents were known to insiders ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, but that information did not see the light of day until this week, leading many to consider the possibility that a coverup was afoot.
