With Americans’ trust in Joe Biden plummeting in the fallout of a classified document scandal, it appears as though the Secret Service is sustaining some collateral damage as well.
That’s because the agency is reporting that Biden’s Delaware home, where a tranche of classified material was discovered just days ago, has no log of guests despite the fact that Biden himself has spent an inordinate amount of time there.
President Joe Biden has reportedly spent 163 days of his presidency at his home in Wilmington, Delaware, where the Secret Service claimed Sunday no visitor logs exist.Advertisement - story continues below
Critics have raised questions about who might have visited Biden’s residence after his attorneys found classified documents stashed in the home’s garage.
In total, Biden has spent 163 days over the course of 49 trips to his Wilmington residence, according to the Republican National Committee’s “Big Guy tracker.” It is unknown how many days Biden spent at the home after leaving the White House in 2017 and before assuming the Oval Office in 2021.
The scandal continues to evolve.
On Thursday, Biden’s personal attorneys found five more classified documents stashed at Biden’s home. The White House has refused to explain why Biden’s attorneys initially searched Biden’s residence and the Biden Penn Center for classified documents.
The GOP was furious.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), House Oversight Committee chairman, asked the White House on Sunday why Biden’s personal attorneys were continuing to search his home for classified documents after a special counsel was appointed. The White House has yet to respond to Comer’s question.
Comer also asked for the disclosure of visitor logs from Biden’s home in Wilmington.
The Secret Service’s claim is both frustrating and terrifying.
On Sunday, the Secret Service claimed no visitor logs exist from the residence. “We don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence,” Secret Service Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.
Donald Trump responded to these absurd claims, blasting Biden and revealing the powerful security measures at Mar-a-Lago, where his supposedly-classified materials were found.
