Other confidential documents were found in Joe Biden’s house

These documents, which date from the vice-presidency of Joe Biden, from 2009 to 2017, were found in a room adjacent to the garage after the arrival Thursday evening of the lawyer of the presidency Richard Sauber, specifies this one in a press release. .

He indicates that he went to this opulent residence in Wilmington, in the state of Delaware, in order to supervise the transmission to justice of a first set of confidential documents, found on the spot on Wednesday.

Richard Sauber recalls that while searching the home on Wednesday, the president’s personal lawyers had found, in this room next to the garage, a page marked as being a confidential document.

Not having the necessary authorizations to consult this type of document, these lawyers did not push their research further and warned the Department of Justice, specifies the adviser to the White House.

Archives protected by law

A 1978 law obliges American presidents and vice-presidents to send all their correspondence, letters, emails and other working documents to the National Archives.

Richard Sauber, meanwhile authorized to consult confidential documents, discovered five other pages when he came, six pages in total, and indicates that the representatives of the Department of Justice who accompanied him at once pris possession.

In addition to the records found in this private residence, other confidential documents had been discovered last November at Penn Biden Centera Washington think tank where Joe Biden once had an office, and had also been in court.

On Thursday, Justice Secretary Merrick Garland appointed an independent prosecutor to investigate the case.

The White House communicated without delay about the files found in Wilmington but did not recognize until last Monday, two months later, the discovery of those who were in Washington.

This matter is very delicate for Joe Biden as he plans to run for a second term.

It recalls in particular, despite numerous differences on the merits, that the former President Donald Trump is also in the sights of justice for taking official documents to his Florida residence.
