In addition to the boxes of classified documents discovered in President Biden’s possession from his time as vice president and senator, there is a fresh collection of materials at the University of Delaware. In addition, the transfer of the document boxes, which began in 2010 and had questionable features, did not take place until 2012. Now that the unusual aspects have come to light, there are calls for openness regarding the papers, what they include, and the timetable for the transfer of the boxes.
The Biz Pac Review notes:
The story begins in 2010, when a business associate of Biden’s crack-smoking son, Hunter, was inexplicably assigned the task of transferring the documents from Biden’s VP office to the University of Delaware. The moving of the documents was reportedly performed by Eric Schwerin, who was Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca business partner. The 1,850 boxes of documents were moved to the University of Delaware after Biden decided to donate them. While most of the documents were reportedly from his tenure as a Delaware senator, some of the documents were also from the 2009 Obama-Biden presidential transition, as exclusively reported on Thursday by the Daily Mail.
Prior to the documents being moved, the then-VP’s deputy counsel, Katherine Oyama, reportedly wrote an email to Schwerin warning him that the documents contained 2009 Obama-Biden presidential transition papers that “the vice president likely does not own.” “She recommended the inclusion of language about ‘the University’s duty to comply with … classified information procedures,’” according to the Daily Mail. Schwerin subsequently forwarded Oyama’s email to Hunter and wrote, “FYI – if you want to be in the loop. I sent to Mel who is going to talk to your Dad about this and decide who should work on it between him and Jamie.” Mel was reportedly a reference to attorney Melvyn Monzack, who “handled Hunter and Joe’s brother Jim’s taxes and other Biden family affairs,” according to the Daily Mail.
The University of Delaware did not get the materials until June 6, 2012.
“The University of Delaware’s Morris Library last week welcomed a delivery of 1,875 boxes full of Vice President Joe Biden’s senatorial papers, the largest collection that the library’s special collections department has ever received,” the Newark Post reported at the time. “Crews moved the 33 pallets of boxes from two trucks into the library’s basement, where the papers were secured on mechanical compact shelving, built especially to accommodate the large collection,” the Post added.
The library announced the receipt of the documents on its website:
Site #21: Alumni Wall of Fame, Alumni Circle, University of Delaware, Newark, DE.
Joe Biden is among the #UDel alumni honored on this wall. It was established as a virtual award in 1984 by @UDalumni and @UDelaware. The physical wall was unveiled in 2019.https://t.co/ZOagTSYhjv pic.twitter.com/NWtXIypWu2

The documents are also related to the Tara Reade scandal. Recall that during the 2020 presidential race, Tara Reade came forth accusing Biden of having sexually harassed her decades ago as a Delaware senator. The following year, Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation sued the University of Delaware demanding access to the documents so they could comb through them for any proof confirming Reade’s accusation. “The records sought by both the DCNF and Judicial Watch may contain information related to Tara Reade — who in 1993, while working in Biden’s senate office, accused him of sexually assaulting her. A copy of the complaint she filed on the matter and related documents to the alleged incident may also be included in the records,” the Daily Caller reported at the time.
The contents of the boxes remains a mystery. “Fox News Digital reached out to the University of Delaware on Wednesday asking if the papers Biden donated to the school from his Senate career have been combed for classified documents. The university did not respond to a media inquiry,” Fox News reported Thursday. Former White House ethics chief Richard Painter stated, “Somebody should be taking a look to make sure there aren’t classified documents sitting over there at the University of Delaware,” he told Fox News.
