Biden’s Stash of Classified Documents Included Materials Marked Top Secret

President Joe Biden’s stash of classified documents at the Biden Penn Center included materials reportedly marked top secret.

About ten documents were unearthed at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC, on Tuesday by Biden’s personal attorneys. Among those, some were marked top secret, according to CBS News.

Between the classified documents retrieved from the Biden Penn Center and the documents retrieved from Biden’s residence in Delaware on Thursday, the total number of classified Biden stashed is about 20. No top secret documents were reported to be at Biden’s residence.

It is unknown why Biden’s personal attorneys were initially looking for the classified documents.
