Reportedly, only days after the information about a set of around 10 documents being found in one of President Biden’s old offices, new information has emerged that White House aides found a second batch of classified documents.
According to an NBC News report, the second batch of classified documents was not found in the University of Pennsylvania office in Washington D.C., which is where Biden’s personal lawyers had found the first batch of files. The report also continued to say that White House aides have been trying to find if there were any other classified documents following the discovery of the first ten documents.
Earlier on Wednesday, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had to deal with a number of questions from reporters regarding the second set of classified documents. However, for the most part, she did not provide a lot of additional information about the case. When asked about why the public was informed months later even though the documents had originally been found on Nov. 2, six days before the midterm election, Jean-Pierre refused to reply and instead said that the documents were under the review of the Department of Justice.
On Tuesday Biden had said in regards to the first batch of documents that he did not know what documents had been found. He further added that he was surprised to learn that any documents had been found in that location. Finally, he said that the American public knew that he was very serious about the handling of classified documents.
