( – BREAKING NEWS ALERT: The White House announced on Saturday that five more pages of classified documents were found in President Biden’s Delaware home this week, adding further fuel to the controversy surrounding his handling of government secrets.

The additional pages were discovered on Thursday, just hours after the White House acknowledged that a single page of classified material had been found in Biden’s personal library, near the garage where he had stored other restricted documents from his time as vice president.

With this new discovery, a total of six classified pages have now emerged from Biden’s Wilmington home, while the number of documents found in the home’s garage and the office of his DC think tank remains unknown.

White House special counsel Richard Sauber said he found the material in “a room adjacent to the garage” of Biden’s home when Department of Justice officials arrived to retrieve the single classified page. “While I was transferring it to the DOJ officials who accompanied me, five additional pages with classification markings were discovered among the material with it, for a total of six pages,” Sauber said. “The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of them.”

Biden’s lawyers halted a search of the room on Wednesday evening, Sauber said, because the aides conducting it lacked security clearances to see what they might find. This has led to criticism from Republicans, with House Republican conference chair Rep. Elise Stefanik stating, “Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family are corrupt and significant threats to national security.”

This news comes after the White House admitted on Monday that Biden had mishandled classified documents from the Obama administration, following a press report that revealed sensitive documents had been found months before at Biden’s former think tank office in Washington. In response, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur, a former Maryland US attorney, as special counsel on Thursday to examine the matter, which could potentially endanger Biden’s planned 2024 re-election bid.

On Friday, House investigators entered the fray as new Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) demanded that Garland hand over “all documents and communications” regarding the DOJ’s probe.

Robert Bauer, Biden’s personal lawyer, defended the slow release of details on the document search in a statement, saying that the president’s legal team was trying to balance transparency and “the established norms and limitations necessary to protect the investigation’s integrity.” He added, “These considerations require avoiding the public release of detail relevant to the investigation while it is ongoing.”

It remains to be seen how this recent discovery of classified documents at Biden’s Delaware home will affect the ongoing investigation and its impact on his presidency and potential re-election bid. The mishandling of classified documents is a serious issue, and the White House and Biden’s legal team will need to address it swiftly and transparently to maintain the public’s trust and avoid further damage to the president’s reputation.
