Biden accepts that there were classified documents in his home

President Joe Biden acknowledged Thursday that a document with classified markings from his time as vice president was found in his "personal library" at his home in Wilmington, Delaware, along with other documents found in his garage, days after it was revealed that confidential files were also found where his Washington office used to be.


He did not say when the latest set of documents was found, only that his lawyers finished reviewing possible storage locations Wednesday night. Lawyers found the first set on Nov. 2, days before the midterm elections, but this he learned just three days ago.


Also today, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of a special counsel to take over the investigation into President Joe Biden's possible mishandling of classified documents.


President Biden himself admitted as much at a press conference:



People know that I take the issue of classified documents very seriously. I am cooperating fully with the Justice Department's investigation. As part of that process my lawyers have reviewed other places where there may have been documents stored from my time as vice president and they completed that search last night. They discovered a small number of documents marked classified that were stored in my home in my personal library. The justice department was notified immediately and my lawyers made arrangements to turn the documents over to them.

Regardless of the Justice Department's review, the revelation that Biden possibly mishandled classified or presidential documents will be a political headache for Biden, who has called former President Donald Trump "irresponsible" for keeping hundreds of classified documents at his private club in Florida.
