“I reported the discovery and was surprised to learn that government documents were in the office at all,” President Joe Biden told reporters in Mexico City, where he is taking part in meetings with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Documents must be checked
Biden’s lawyers found the documents in November while cleaning up their office. They turned the documents over to the National Archives, which handles the material, according to Biden adviser Richard Sauber.
The Department of Justice is now ready to examine the documents.
“The White House is cooperating with the National Archives and the Department of Justice,” Sauber said in a statement.
It must be in a locked cabinet
Sauber described them as “a small number of classified documents” that were found at the Ben Biden Center, a think tank associated with the University of Pennsylvania where Biden was previously an emeritus professor. According to the statement, the documents were in a locked safe.
In a raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Florida residence in August, the FBI seized more than 100 classified documents. This finding is also under review by the Department of Justice.
