The National Archives has admitted that approximately 1,170 pages of records from President Joe Biden's time as vice president were found at the Penn Biden Center in November 2022, and the agency said it does not have custody of any records discovered at Biden's homes in Delaware.
The America First Legal Foundation highlighted the revelation Thursday by publishing a letter that the National Archives sent to the conservative legal group in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
The Archives told the legal group it "must deny your request in full for approximately 1,170 pages" found at the Penn Biden Center in the president's former office because they are the "subject of an ongoing law enforcement investigation."
The agency gave the same reasoning for denying America First access to the nine boxes of records found at Biden's attorney's office in Boston. It is unclear what documents were included in that cache, but The Associated Press reported last month that it did not appear to include any classified documents.
America First also requested all records found at Biden's family home or vacation home in Delaware.
"NARA does not have physical custody of any Vice Presidential records retrieved from these locations. Because we lack custody of the records, we cannot respond to your request for these records," the Archives said.
It is unclear who has custody of any records from Biden's homes, including multiple classified documents that were found in his Wilmington house.
Classified records have been found in Biden's possession at least five times since November.
How many were classified?
Bragg has stolen Merrick Garland’s thunder.
What people pay say when Garland wants to bring his manufactured, fraudulent and increasingly asinine case?
OK . . . let’s indict a sitting president.
Shell and pea game?
The Big Guy’s Department of Just Us will get right on this!
Most likely all of them. You know, ChyNa and Money Money MONEY!
The difference is....Trump WAS President with the authority to declassify. Biden shouldn't have had any documents that belong in the archives.
I think this is what you call “Document Laundering”.
The National Archives needs to be cleansed of leftists. Fire every employee and rehire.
It’s only a crime when Trump does it and the JO’s who are investigating get to go through Melania’s underwear drawers. The boyz and gurlz aren’t interested in going through Dr. Jill underwear drawers.
The leftists and incompetents are in the leadership positions and make policy, decisions, and have accession authority, not those below them. Most Archives employees are good people though the older group that I worked with for decades are gone, taking along with them their knowledge of where documents are or are Not, how to properly intake new accessions and place them in the stacks, and often the nuances of related records collections.
There is a great need for an outside commission, aided by Archives employees, to look deeply into how the whole Archives/Federal Records Centers are set up, run and often mishandled.
