House Oversight Committee to investigate visitor log situation at Biden's private residence

 January 17, 2023

After the White House claimed there are no records of visitors to President Joe Biden's private Wilmington, Delaware residence.

However, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, declared on Monday that the committee will "continue to press the Biden Administration" regarding who had access to classified documents kept there, according to a report by Breitbart News.

“The White House, National Archives, and the Justice Department withheld information from Congress and the American people about classified records found in unsecure locations from Joe Biden’s time as vice president,” Comer told Fox News digital.

The lawmaker added, "The American people deserve transparency, not secrecy. We will continue to press the Biden Administration for answers about who had access to these classified documents and why Biden aides were permitted to rummage through the Wilmington residence after the appointment of a special counsel."

Comer's Letter

Comer wrote a letter to White House chief of staff Ron Klain on Sunday requesting the release of visitor logs from the home, claiming "severe national security implications," according to Breitbart News.

Comer wrote in part:

Given the serious national security implications, the White House must provide the Wilmington residence’s visitor log. As Chief of Staff, you are head of the Executive Office of the President and bear responsibility to be transparent with the American people on these important issues related to the White House’s handling of this matter.

Biden’s mishandling of classified materials raises the issue of whether he has jeopardized our national security. Without a list of individuals who have visited his residence, the American people will never know who had access to these highly sensitive documents.

The Associated Press noted on Sunday that a Secret Service spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi stated the agency doesn't keep visitor logs for the residence.

“We don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence,” Guglielmi said.

White House spokesman Ian Sams delivered a similar statement.

“Like every President in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” said Sams.

Details of the leak

So far, 25 classified documents have been discovered between Biden's house in Wilmington and the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC.

This week, secret materials were discovered in Biden's vice-presidential office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, which is near to Capitol Hill, as well as other locations such as his Delaware home.

However, Comer's letter comes after the New York Times reported on Saturday that his legal team discovered additional secret documents in Biden's Delaware home, raising the total number of mishandled items to around 25.

Only time will tell, but this situation looks as though it will get a lot worse for the president.
