The new materials
“Aides to President Joe Biden have discovered at least one additional batch of classified documents in a location separate from the Washington office he used after leaving the Obama administration, according to a person familiar with the matter,” NBC News reported.
“Since November, after the discovery of documents with classified markings in his former office, Biden aides have been searching for any additional classified materials that might be in other locations he used, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details about the ongoing inquiry,” it added.
Now a second Biden batch of classified material has been found in a different location.

“Biden also revealed Tuesday there were ‘boxes’ of documents that were turned over to the archives,” Breitbart News reported.
“The White House has stonewalled any additional information about the documents that were first discovered just days before the 2022 midterm elections,” it added.

What’s good for the goose
Critics have been quick to remind Biden that he was quick to condemn former President Donald Trump for having classified documents in Mar-a-Lago.
“How does that happen? How could anyone be that irresponsible,” the president said in a 60 Minutes interview.

The report of a second batch of classified materials has also fueled questions of whether even more documents will be found. If so, the investigation of the matter could be an important factor related to Biden running for reelection in 2024.
The classified materials will also likely keep Trump from facing further legal battles over his own classified files as the same approach would likely be used against Biden as he likely prepares his reelection campaign against the former president.
