Why Biden Took ‘Classified’ Documents

 From Becker News:

“Among the classified documents from Joe Biden’s time as vice president discovered in a private office last fall are US intelligence memos and briefing materials that covered topics including Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom,” a source told CNN. “A total of 10 documents with classification markings were found last year in Biden’s private academic office and they were dated between 2013 and 2016,” the report added. In a situation similar to the “classified” marked documents found at former President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago, the boxes found at the Penn Biden Center with these classified records also contained personal Biden family documents.

From Just the News:

The issue of handling of classified documents boomeranged Monday on President Joe Biden, just months after the FBI raided Donald Trump's Florida home, as officials confirmed a small number of classified documents were found in a private office once used by the current president at his think tank.

A senior government official directly familiar with the discovery told Just the News that the National Archives asked the Justice Department to open an investigation in November after a small number of classified documents -- some marked top secret -- were found in a locked closet in the Penn Biden Center in Washington, where Biden worked after he left the Obama administration.

The official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said Attorney General Merrick Garland has asked a U.S. attorney in Illinois -- a holdover from the Trump administration -- to oversee the investigation with NARA and the FBI. The documents appear to be from the Obama administration.

The White House released a statement Monday evening confirming the discovery and the investigation, saying Biden's lawyers self-disclosed the existence of the documents when the office previously used by the president was being vacated for another party.

"The White House is cooperating with the National Archives and the Department of Justice regarding the discovery of what appear to be Obama-Biden Administration records, including a small number of documents with classified markings," White House special counsel Richard Sauber said in a statement after the discovery was reported by CBS and CNN. "The documents were discovered when the President's personal attorneys were packing files housed in a locked closet to prepare to vacate office space at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C."

From The Post Millennial:

A Chicago attorney has been assigned by US Attorney General Merrick Garland to review classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, reports CBS News. This relates to about 10 documents from President Biden's vice-presidential office, two sources said.

The materials were identified by personal attorneys for the president on November 2, just days before the midterm elections, according to special counsel to the president Richard Sauber. The documents were discovered when Biden's personal attorneys "were packing files housed in a locked closet to prepare to vacate office space at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C.," Sauber said in a statement.

From Breitbart:

At least $54 million has been donated by Chinese Communist Party-linked individuals or entities between 2014 and 2019 to the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington at the University of Pennsylvania, according to public records reported by the New York Post, where it was revealed this week that Biden had stashed a trove of classified documents.

The University of Pennsylvania announced it would create the Biden Center in 2017, the same year then-Vice President Biden left the White House. Most of the anonymous donations were given to the Biden Center after the university announced the Penn Biden Center, the Post reported. (Read more.)
