Washington. US President Joe Biden’s lawyers have found more classified documents than previously disclosed at his home in Wilmington, Delaware. The White House gave this information on Saturday. White House counsel Richard Sauber said in a statement that a total of six pages of classified documents were found during a search of Biden’s private library. The White House had earlier told that only one page has been recovered from there.
Apart from this, documents were also found from Biden’s garage in December and his former office ‘Penn Biden Center’ in Washington in November, which were during his Vice Presidential tenure. White House counsel Richard Sober said in a statement on Saturday that Biden’s personal lawyers had stopped the search after finding a page on Wednesday evening due to lack of security clearance.
Richard Sauber received the rest of the material on Thursday when he was accompanied by Justice Department officials. He said the department officials accompanying him seized the documents ‘immediately’.

The confidential documents that Biden’s aides have found are probably from 2009 to 2016 during his Vice Presidentship. The White House press secretary said, ‘He (the President) does not know what is in the documents. These documents were sent to the archives of the Department of Justice immediately after they were received here. Biden’s receipt of these confidential documents, believed to be from the time of the Obama administration, has created a political storm in the country and is being compared to Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump.
