On Tuesday, NBC’s Justice and Intelligence correspondent Ken Dilanian reportedly questioned why the Biden Administration delayed months to inform the American people that secret records from President Joe Biden’s tenure as vice president had been discovered in a personal office.
CNN claimed, citing two sources familiar with the situation, that Biden’s personal attorneys discovered numerous documents while packing files and contacted the National Archives and Records Administration.
“Nonetheless there are some significant concerns here, A) how did these classified documents get to a place they shouldn’t have been and B) why did the White House sit on this for so long? They knew six days before the November midterm. Joe Biden knew, his aides knew, yet they did not tell the public until this leaked to the news media.” Dilanian said.
Several of the secret materials were apparently tied to Ukraine, Iran, and the United Kingdom.
Biden was allegedly unaware that the records had been discovered at the office until he was alerted by the White House counsel’s office.
Six days before the midterm elections, the documents were discovered, in spite of this the news of their existence wasn’t released to the public until this week.
Republicans have committed to look into the suspected weaponization of multiple intelligence organizations now that they are officially in control of the House with California Rep. Kevin McCarthy being elected Speaker of the House.
