Remember when the FBI sent a team to raid former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and cracked into his safe because of documents that he, as president, was free to declassify if he so wanted?
Yeah, well that’s not what is going on with Biden even though two sets of documents have now been found, some in the U Penn Biden Center in DC, suspicious because of the millions in donation dollars from communist China that U Penn has received, and another set found in his garage, next to his Corvette. Yes, Biden apparently had classified documents in his garage.
Well, a reporter decided to press Biden on the documents situation during Biden’s remarks on the economy, asking “Mr. President, classified — classified material next to your Corvette. What were you thinking?”
Biden’s response was ridiculous. According to him, keeping classified materials in the garage, next to the Corvette, was okay because the garage is locked. Yes, he really said that. Here’s his response:
Let me — they’re — I’m going to get a chance to speak on all this, God willing, soon, but as I said earlier this week, people — and, by the way, my Corvette is in a locked garage. Okay? So, it’s not like they’re sitting out in the street. But at any rate —
The reporter, astonished Biden actually said that, asked “So the material was in a locked garage?” And no one in the administration shut Biden up so he continued, saying:
Yes, as well as my Corvette. But as I said earlier this week, people know I take classified documents and classified material seriously. I also said we’re cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review.
As part of that process, my lawyers reviewed other places where documents might of — from my time as Vice President were stored. And they finished the review last night. They discovered a small number of documents with classified markings in storage areas and in file cabinets in my home and my — and my — in my personal library. This was done in the case of the Biden Penn — this was done in the case of the Biden Penn Center.
The Department of Justice was immediately — as was done, the Department of Justice was immediately cla- — notified, and the lawyers arranged for the Department of Justice to take possession of the document.

The new documents come as a surprise to many because Biden, speaking about the classified documents situation just yesterday, said he didn’t know about them, telling a reporter:
Well, let me get rid of the easy one first. People know I take classified documents and classified information seriously. When my lawyers were clearing out my office at the University of Pennsylvania, they set up an office for me — a secure office in the Capitol, when I — the four years after being Vice President, I was a professor at Penn.
They found some documents in a box — you know, a locked cabinet, or at least a closet. And as soon as they did, they realized there were several classified documents in that box. And they did what they should have done: They immediately called the Archives — immediately called the Archives, turned them over to the Archives. And I was briefed about this discovery and surprised to learn that there were any government records that were taken there to that office.
But I don’t know what’s in the documents. I’ve — my lawyers have not suggested I ask what documents they were. I’ve turned over the boxes — they’ve turned over the boxes to the Archives. And we’re cooperating fully — cooperating fully with the review, and — which I hope will be finished soon, and will be more detail at that time.
