Classified documents found in Biden’s office marked ‘top secret’ – contained information related to Ukraine, Iran and UK: report
Classified documents discovered in President Joe Biden’s private office last fall include American “intelligence memos and briefing materials” relating to Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom, CNN reported.
Sources told CNN the documents were dated to the Obama administration’s second term, from 2013 to 2016. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was active in Ukraine during those years.
The sources confirmed that the documents were discovered in boxes that also contained unclassified documents. Many of the documents in these boxes also fell under the Presidential Records Act and should therefore have remained in the possession of the US government.
After CNNsome of the secret documents have been marked as “top secret”:
Less than a dozen classified documents were found at the office, another source told CNN. Why they were brought into Biden’s private office is unclear. Classified materials included some top-secret files called sensitive compartmentalized information, also known as SCI, which is used for highly sensitive information obtained from intelligence sources.
Biden was reportedly unaware that the documents were in his private office, and he reportedly does not know what information the documents contain.
If Biden didn’t know they were there, the question becomes: Who, having access to top secret information, kept the documents in Biden’s private office without their knowledge?
However, one thing is clear. Despite gnashing of teeth over Donald Trump storing classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, Democrats are playing a whataboutism game, emphasizing that this case of misuse of classified information is nothing like Trump’s because fewer documents are involved, Biden They allegedly didn’t know they were there, and Biden’s attorneys immediately turned the documents over to the National Archives.
Meanwhile, it’s not clear if the documents Biden’s lawyers turned over are Everyone from them. The only documents that were turned over were those that were immediately found to be labeled with classified headings. It’s not clear if government investigators were looking for more classified documents.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has hired Trump-appointed US Attorney John Lausch Jr. to investigate the situation.
