The White House says the second set of classified documents found by President Biden’s lawyers were located in his garage in Wilmington, Delaware. It had earlier been reported that another set of documents had been found but the location was unknown.
In a statement, Richard Sauber, Special Counsel to the President, said: “The lawyers discovered among personal and political papers a small number of additional Obama-Biden Administration records with classified markings.
“All but one of these documents were found in storage space in the President’s Wilmington residence garage. One document consisting of one page was discovered among stored materials in an adjacent room.”
The administration was fully co-operating to ensure that the records are handled properly, he said.
Access to classified documents is limited by law to people with special authorisation and there are rules about how they are kept and stored
