A photo of US President Joe Biden’s Delaware mansion taken in 2019 has surfaced, showing the residence unguarded by the Secret Service while classified documents were suspected in his garage.
Pictures taken by Fox News on April 19, 2019 — the same day he announced his presidential candidacy — of the street outside Biden’s Wilmington home show an abandoned guard shack and empty parking lots near the gate leading to the residence leads.
At least six classified documents were found at the President’s private home in Wilmington, some of which appear to have been haphazardly stored in boxes stacked in his garage next to his Corvette.
It comes as Biden is slammed for failing to answer questions about the classified files and is seen grinning during a media barbecue after his attorneys announced they found the latest batch of classified files on Saturday, bringing the total increased to two dozen.

The lack of Secret Service presence is said to be normal for retired vice presidents who do not maintain post-office protection, but chillingly overlaps with the length of time the classified documents would have been kept in the building.
More recent photos from the mansion show the same area, now filled with police cars, SUVs and a checkpoint after Biden’s tenure as the 46th President of the United States began upon his inauguration on January 20, 2021.
Special Counsel to the President Richard Sauber said in a statement that five more pages of documents with secret markings were found Thursday night at Biden’s home, for a total of six from there.
Sauber said when Biden’s personal attorneys identified a classified document in Biden’s home on Wednesday, they immediately stopped searching for additional documents because they lacked the security clearances necessary to view those materials.
“Because I have a security clearance, I drove to Wilmington Thursday night to facilitate the delivery of the document that the President’s personal attorney found Wednesday to the Justice Department,” Sauber said.
“While handing it over to the DOJ officials accompanying me, five additional pages of classification markings were discovered among the accompanying material, for a total of six pages. The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of it.
“The President’s attorneys acted promptly and voluntarily to make the Penn Biden documents available to the Archives and the Wilmington documents to the DOJ,” he said.
The White House has previously claimed President Biden is working while he visits his Delaware mansion, but has since said the residence is “personal.”
The office made the statement as it explained why no visitor logs exist at Biden’s Wilmington residence, much to the dismay of House Republicans, like Rep. James Comer, who have been requesting visitor logs from the Delaware home for two years

During a press conference at the White House on Feb. 25, 2022, former press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden can do his job from anywhere, Fox News reported.
“I’ll note that while any president can work from anywhere because presidencies are equipped that way, he’s going to Delaware for a family member’s memorial service, so he’s going there this weekend. ‘ said Psaki.
“Yes, the President has the ability to make a secure call from anywhere.”
But on Monday, when the White House Office explained why there are no visitor logs on its Wilmington property, the White House Office said the residence is personal.
“Like every president in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” the office said.
House Republicans had demanded that he serve minutes for the Delaware mansion for two years after the classified documents were uncovered.

“In light of the grave national security implications, the White House is required to make the Wilmington residence visitation log available,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer wrote in a Sunday letter to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who is from Fox News was received.
The congressman continued, “As Chief of Staff, you are head of the President’s Executive Office and you have a responsibility to be transparent with the American people on these important issues surrounding the White House’s handling of this matter.”
Comer further argued that knowing who might have been privy to the confidential information was necessary in order to fully address the situation.

Sen. Rick Scott of Florida said Biden was either a “hypocrite” or “completely clueless,” joining the legions of lawmakers questioning why former President Donald Trump’s home was being searched by armed FBI agents, as documents revealed were found at his home, but Biden received no such treatment.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz tweeted, “When is there a full FBI crackdown?”
Even an attorney who once prosecuted Trump during the Mueller probe, Andrew Weissmann, said Biden had “digged a deeper hole” as his administration remained vague on the investigation as more documents surfaced.
The White House claimed it handled both the discovery of the documents and the subsequent statements in a “transparent” manner, but questions have been raised by members of both political parties as to why the public was not informed ahead of the midterm elections.
Biden was also reminded of his own comments when he criticized former President Trump for keeping a number of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate, prompting an FBI raid.
‘How could this happen, how could someone be so irresponsible?’ Biden said on 60 Minutes in September.
The latest discovery comes just days after two more sets of sensitive files were found. The first was spotted in a DC office for his think tank.
Former President Donald Trump (right) has blasted the FBI and DOJ for targeting him over classified files while sparing the “hopeless Joe” (referring to US President Joe Biden, pictured left), as he warns that the “country is in serious trouble”.
On Saturday, Trump simmered on his Truth Social account as he tried to argue that Biden’s keeping of classified documents was far worse than what he was doing, describing Mar-A-Lago as “essentially an armed fortress.”
Trump also slammed the FBI and DOJ for attacking him over classified files while sparing “hopeless Joe” – as he warned that the “country is in serious trouble.”
“What Biden did was wrong, but he was given a sane and stable special counsel who is sane, inclined to not make waves, is friends with RINOs (Republicans in name only), and not known as a flame-throwing lunatic or Biden is a hater,” Trump said.
“What I did was RIGHT, documents secured in a secure location, doors locked, guards and Secret Service everywhere, security cameras running.
Trump has repeatedly claimed that he secretly released the documents he took home, but that claim has been refuted by former senior officials, and his attorneys have made no similar allegations in court.
“The Boxes Hoax case against me should be dropped immediately. I did nothing wrong!’ he finished it.

Later in the day, Trump attacked prosecutors between the two cases, describing them as “sick thugs.”
“How come Biden’s ‘Attorney’ is a nice guy, very friendly to Democrats and RINOs alike, close to Christopher Wray and fairly well-liked and well-known by all, while my ‘Attorney’ is a radical Left Trump, who is insane, whose wife & family get a perfect ’10’ for spitting Trump HATE, & whose ‘friends’ are the most evil, angry and disgusting Marxists and Communists in and around the government?’
“They BBQ innocent people on grand juries for hours to ‘get Trump’. These are sick thugs!’
Trump went on to claim the FBI was “CROOKED, CORRUPT and BROKEN” and warned Americans that the country was in “serious trouble.”
“THIS WAS GOING AGAINST ME FOR YEARS. THE FBI AND THE DEPARTMENT OF WRONG ARE CORRUPT, CORRUPT AND BROKEN,” he wrote.
‘(Just look at that crazy radical left prosecutor they gave me, but not Hopeless Joe, Twitter Files & the RIGGED 2020 Presidential Election, the Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, & all the rest!).
“OUR COUNTRY IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE, NO BORDERS, NO VOTER CARDS, NO ENERGY INDEPENDENCE. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS NOT SMART & HARD, BUT MAYBE NOW IT WILL BE. GOOD LUCK AMERICA!!!’
