Biden Senate records should be searched in classified documents case, watchdogs say
- January 24, 2023
EXCLUSIVE — The special counsel appointed to investigate President Joe Biden’s possible mishandling of classified documents should authorize a search of his hidden Senate records stored at the University of Delaware, according to watchdogs.
Attorney General Merrick Garland made ex-Trump Justice Department appointee Robert Hur special counsel on Jan. 12 to handle the investigation, which widened in scope on Friday upon DOJ officials finding six more classified records at Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home. Now, three watchdog groups are calling for a search of the University of Delaware, which houses almost 2,000 boxes and over 400 gigabytes of digital records from Biden’s 36-year Senate career.
With the number of discoveries of new locations containing classified documents seeming to rise every day, it’s possible that classified material could be found in nearly every place Joe Biden slept, worked, or stored his personal belongings,” said Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust. “Not only has the White House deflected legitimate questions about this scandal, it has also expended taxpayer resources in a potentially improper manner in a matter involving Mr. Biden long before he became President Biden.”
