ANOTHER BATCH OF CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS!
Brandon’s aides found at least one more batch of classified documents at another location.
The first batch of classified documents were found at Penn Brandon Center.
It is unclear when or where the second batch was discovered by Brandon’s aides.
NBC News reported:
Aides to President Brandon 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.
Since November, after the discovery of documents with classified markings in his former office, Brandon 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.
The classification level, number and precise location of the additional documents was not immediately clear. It also was not immediately clear when the additional documents were discovered and if the search for any other classified materials Brandon may have from the Obama administration is complete.
Brandon aides have been sifting through documents stored at locations beyond his former Washington office to determine if there are any other classified documents that need to be turned over to the National Archives and reviewed by the Justice Department, the person familiar with the matter said.
The search was described as exhaustive, with the goal of getting a full accounting of all classified documents that may have inadvertently been packed in boxes when Brandon cleared out of the vice president’s office space in January 2017.
On Monday it was revealed top secret intelligence documents related to Ukraine, UK and Iran were found in Brandon’s private office shortly before the 2022 midterm elections.
Brandon stored top-secret files with the “sensitive compartmented information” (SCIF) designation at Penn Brandon Center in DC.
Brandon on Tuesday said he was “surprised” to learn there was classified materials at his private office.
“I don’t know what’s in the documents,” Brandon said.
Brandon literally reads off a script when asked about the classified documents from his vice presidency found at his personal office:
