Investigation Launched Into Classified Documents Discovered in Joe Biden’s Office

The United States Department of Justice reported on this Monday (01.09.2023) that it is investigating the appearance of several classified documents at the offices of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Engagement, which was founded by US President Joe Biden following his Vice Presidency with Barack Obama (2009-2017).

This case, although the US media has found little similarities, is reminiscent of the one that led the FBI to search for Donald Trump’s (2017-2021) residence at Mar-a-Lago (Florida) last August.

In response, the White House has assured to be cooperating with the investigation, which is being handled by the Justice Office along with the National Archives, responsible for protecting all classified documents of US presidencies.

At an added comment, Richard Sauber, Joe Biden’s special adviser, declared: “The White House is cooperating with the National Archives and the Department of Justice regarding the discovery of what appear to be Obama and Biden administration records, including a small number of documents marked as classified.”

According to The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources, the FBI is also part of the investigation, which concerns around ten documents found in Biden’s former office, where he worked regularly between 2017 and the beginning of his 2020 presidential campaign.

The documents had been discovered by Biden’s legal team, who then handed them to the authorities, granting opposite that what had happened at Trump’s estate in Mar-a-Lago, when the intervention of the Department of Justice was necessary in order to retrieve the papers.
