Biden on the defense after secret documents are discovered at his home.
While authorities were looking into a much greater controversy involving Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump, the potentially damaging finding for Biden was made. The Obama-Biden administration papers were discovered at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, after other records of a similar nature were discovered at a Washington think tank where Biden had previously held an office.
Trump might be charged for obstructing the legal system. For a president who prides himself on having high moral standards, the finding of documents at Biden’s home is politically hard, and it may also make the Trump investigation more difficult.
People are aware that I take the seriousness of sensitive information and material seriously, Biden said to reporters on Thursday.
