In the wake of the discovery of stacks of secret documents in Joe Biden’s home and off-site office, a new concern has emerged. Less than a week before the midterm elections, Joe Biden’s private office at a think tank in Washington, D.C., where he worked as a private citizen, yielded documents dating back to the Obama administration, when he was vice president. However, these documents were not disclosed. Then, further sensitive documents were discovered in the garage of Joe Biden. On Saturday, it was reported that five further pages of documents were discovered at the Delaware residence of Joe Biden.
This raises the question of who may have entered these locations and had a hand in the papers. The Secret Service’s response to a request for the President’s Delaware residence’s visitation logs caused jaws to drop. Republicans are seeking answers and are shocked by the lack of transparency surrounding the visitor records from President Joe Biden’s Delaware residence.
“There are no visitor logs for President Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House Counsel’s office said in a Monday statement. Republicans on Capitol Hill demanded the visitor logs this weekend following revelations that Biden’s lawyers had discovered a stash of classified documents inside the home’s garage. While it is common practice to keep comprehensive visitor logs at the White House, Biden’s lawyers say no such record exists for his home in Delaware,” Fox News reported.
“Like every President in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” the White House Counsel’s office told Fox News. “But upon taking office, President Biden restored the norm and tradition of keeping White House visitors logs, including publishing them regularly, after the previous administration ended them.”
In a stunning declaration, the Secret Service asserts that it has no knowledge.
While a protection team is assigned to Biden’s Delaware residence, the United States Secret Service stated on Sunday that they do not record visitors. “We don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence,” spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi told reporters.
Conservative Brief writes that Republican Rep. James Comer, head of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, is requesting the logs and other explanations.
“Given the serious national security implications, the White House must provide the Wilmington residence’s visitor log,” Comer wrote to White House chief of staff Ron Klain. “As Chief of Staff, you are head of the Executive Office of the President and bear responsibility to be transparent with the American people on these important issues related to the White House’s handling of this matter.”
Republicans are not letting this fly, and are seeking explanations on the lack of openness on visitation records from Biden’s Delaware residence.
“The White House has dodged questions on a report that the Secret Service claims to have no records on who has visited Biden’s home, where the president has spent more than 25% of his time since he took office. By comparison, the visitor logs to the White House have been released,” the Washington Examiner reported.
Kentucky GOP Rep. James Comer said: “President Biden has spent a large amount of time at his Delaware residence since assuming office. Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president. The Biden Administration must provide transparency to the American people.”

South Carolina Republican Rep. Nancy Mace also demanded answers from Biden over his Delaware visits, arguing that everyone who comes “into close proximity with the President, in an official or personal capacity, is screened by the Secret Service” and that their record of coming close to the president “exists somewhere.” CONTINUE READING…
