A recent report from the White House made public on Monday explained that the visitors logs for the Wilmington, Delaware, home of President Joe Biden since the start of his presidency does not actually exist.
This announcement was made public in the wake of the discovery of a previously hidden cache of classified papers from where it was stashed inside of Biden’s personal residence over the past few weeks. Republicans have raised a number of questions about just who had access to these stashed records while they had been stuck in storage inside of both Biden’s study and garage.
“Like every President in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” explained the office of the White House Counsel to Fox News. “But upon taking office, President Biden restored the norm and tradition of keeping White House visitors logs, including publishing them regularly, after the previous administration ended them.”
This past Sunday, officials with the U.S. Secret Service explained that it does not even attempt to keep track of those that pay a visit to the personal residence of the president, despite the fact that agents do stand guard at the home.
Over the course of this past weekend, James Comer (R-KY), the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, made a call to White House officials to make public visitor records for the Wilmington home owned by biden since the start of Biden’s presidency, as well as any other bits of information in regard to the classified documents, under the banner of national security.
“It is troubling that classified documents have been improperly stored at the home of President Biden for at least six years, raising questions about who may have reviewed or had access to classified information,” explained Comer in a letter addressed to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. “Additionally, President Biden’s personal attorneys, who do not possess security clearances, and White House staff continue to access and search the President’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware for classified documents.”
“Given the serious national security implications, the White House must provide the Wilmington residence’s visitor log,” stated the congressman.
Firstly, a still unspecified number of classified documents were found having been stashed in the garage of Biden’s house back on December 20th by the personal attorneys for president Biden. The legal team assigned to the president searched the house in the wake of attorneys discovering a packet hiding a cache of 10 classified documents hidden inside of Biden’s personal office located at the Penn Biden Center, a Washington, D.C., think tank affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania, as explained by Richard Sauber, the White House counsel.
Later, Biden’s legal team found even more classified documents, but this time they were found inside Biden’s personal residence. The next day, Sauber even more documents at that same house as he handed over all findings to officials with the Justice Department.
