ANOTHER Batch of Classified Documents Discovered in Separate Biden Office

'We talked about the revelation of the documents, obviously, but about the documents itself, that is something that the president doesn’t even know...'

(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) A second batch of classified documents from the Obama administration was discovered in a different office that President Joe Biden used after completing his tenure as vice president, NBC News reported.

There were sparse details on the new bombshell discovery—including how many, when or specifically where the new batch was discovered, although the report cited a White House statement claiming it was a “small number.”

Biden and his surrogates have struggled to get in front of the development following a CBS News report Monday that about a dozen documents had been discovered on Nov. 2 in Biden’s Washington, D.C., office of the Penn Biden Center—a foreign policy think–tank through the University of Pennsylvania that happened to receive some $54 million dollars in donations from anonymous Chinese investors.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer a barrage of questions about the classified materials durin a briefing on Wednesday insisting that the review into the mishandling was an “ongoing process,” according to Fox News.

“We talked about the revelation of the documents, obviously, but about the documents itself, that is something that the president doesn’t even know,” she claimed. “And I’m going to leave it there.”

Biden himself claimed Tuesday that he was “surprised” by the discovery, even though the information about it had been buried for two months since his lawyers initially reported the documents to the National Archives.

The scandal is exacerbated by the fact that Biden’s attorney general, Merrick Garland, appeared to weaponize the Justice Department prior to the November election by raiding former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate over a similar complaint of mishandled classified documents.

Unlike Trump, Biden did not, as vice president, have the authority to declassify any materials.

Even so, Democrats desperately tried to downplay Biden’s offense and draw arbitrary distinctions between the two cases to insist that only Trump committed a crime.

Trump remains under investigation by partisan special counsel Jack Smith, while it is unclear whether any such probe of Biden’s offense is under consideration.

Several Republicans reacted to the news of the new batch of documents by calling for Garland to appoint a special counsel in Biden’s case as well.
