Share

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is sharing when she first learned classified documents were discovered at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C.

During a press briefing on Tuesday, Jean-Pierre was asked, “When did you learn about the documents found at the Penn Center in November, and in Wilmington in December?”

“When your team was doing a story on it,” she responded.

The exchange comes as the White House has faced questions about how transparent it has been regarding the discovery of classified documents from President Joe Biden’s time as vice president.

On Jan. 9, it was reported a U.S. attorney was reviewing roughly 10 classified documents at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington.

Those documents were discovered in November before the midterm election.

Another batch of documents was found in the garage of the president’s Wilmington, Delaware, home. Those documents were discovered on Dec. 20, 2022.

However, it was not until Wednesday that the second batch of documents was known about. And on Thursday, it was revealed they were discovered in the garage.

And on Saturday, White House lawyer Richard Sauber revealed six documents with classified markings were found in the president’s private library of his Wilmington home.

One was found on Wednesday, and five more were discovered on Thursday.

Also, on Tuesday, one reporter noted Jean-Pierre faced 18 questions on Friday about the documents.

“At that point, the president’s lawyers had found these five additional pages of classified documents. So did you not know on Friday that those documents had been found when you were at the podium? Or are you being directed by someone to not be forthcoming on this issue?” the reporter asked.
