Confidential documents in Biden’s office. The president of the United States spoke
Biden spoke publicly for the first time to the case of documents during a press conference at the North American Leaders’ Summit in Mexico. He said he learned about the case when his lawyers found it while clearing out the Washington office he used before the presidency as part of his work for the University of Pennsylvania.
“They found some documents in a box, in a locked cupboard, and as soon as they realized there were some classified documents, they did what they should have done. They immediately notified the (National) Archives and handed it over to the Archives. I was informed about it and I was surprised that there are any government documents in this office,” the president said. He added that he did not know what was in the documents and was advised not to ask about it. He assured that he was cooperating with the services conducting the security audit.
According to CNN on Wednesday, the 10 classified documents found in Biden’s former office include: intelligence documents and those that contain information about Ukraine, Iran or Great Britain from 2013-2016, when Biden was vice president. According to CNN, Attorney General Merrick Garland has already received a preliminary report on the case and must decide what further action to take.
