WASHINGTON — President Biden admitted Thursday that more classified documents were found inside his Delaware garage near his Corvette after the revelation Monday that 10 sensitive documents were found at Biden’s former think tank office in Washington.

The jaw-dropping disclosure comes as the Justice Department reviews whether Biden mishandled classified information — a potential crime — after he left office as vice president in 2017. Attorney General Merrick Garland was due to make a statement at 1:15 p.m., possibly to appoint a special counsel in the matter.

“Classified materials next to your Corvette? What were you thinking?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden after he spoke about annual inflation edging lower to 6.5% in December.

“My Corvette is in a locked garage, OK? So it’s not like they’re sitting out on the street,” Biden replied.

“So it was in a locked garage?” Doocy followed up.

“Yes, as well as my Corvette,” Biden admitted.

“But as I said earlier this week, people know I take classified documents and classified material seriously,” the president added.

“I also said we’re cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review. As part of that process, my lawyers reviewed other places where documents might —  from my time as vice president — were stored and they finished the review last night. They discovered a small number of documents with classified markings in storage areas and file cabinets in my home and my personal library.”

Biden added, “The Department of Justice was immediately notified and the lawyers arranged for the Department of Justice to take possession of the document [sic]. So you’re gonna see, we’re gonna see all this unfold. I’m confident.”

Moments earlier, White House special counsel Richard Sauber had made the initial disclosure in a written statement.

“Following the discovery of government documents at the Penn Biden Center in November 2022, and coordinating closely with the Department of Justice, the President’s lawyers have searched the President’s Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, residences – the other locations where files from his Vice-Presidential office might have been shipped in the course of the 2017 transition. The lawyers completed that review last night,” Sauber said.

“During the review, the lawyers discovered among personal and political papers a small number of additional Obama-Biden Administration records with classified markings. All but one of these documents were found in storage space in the President’s Wilmington residence garage. One document consisting of one page was discovered among stored materials in an adjacent room. No documents were found in the Rehoboth Beach residence.”

Sauber added, “As was done in the case of the Penn-Biden Center, the Department of Justice was immediately notified, and the lawyers arranged for the Department of Justice to take possession of these documents.”

CNN reported Wednesday that 10 documents — touching on Iran, Ukraine and the UK — that were recovered at the Penn Biden Center Nov. 2 had classified markings and were dated between 2013 and 2016. They were found mixed in with Biden family papers — including information about the funeral arrangements for the president’s son Beau, who died in 2015. Some of the documents were reportedly labeled “top secret,” the highest level of government classification.
