White House shuts down classified document questions (includes video story)

After classified documents were found at Joe Biden’s Delaware home and personal office, the White House is defending the President and his team.

During yesterday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre declined to give more information about on the ongoing investigation.

“One of the things that we have said for the last two years when it comes to the Department of Justice, when it comes to legal matters… we have been very clear that we are not going to comment,” Jean-Pierre said.

The ten documents, dating back to Biden’s vice presidency, were first discovered in November in his former office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. A total of 15 files have been found since then.

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur, a former United States attorney, as special counsel to investigate the issue.
