Another five pages of documents with classified markings were found at President Joe Biden's Delaware home on Thursday evening, the White House revealed on Saturday.
The discovery comes after "the President’s personal attorneys discovered one document with a classified marking consisting of one page in a room adjacent to the garage" on Wednesday, according to a statement from Special Counsel to the President Richard Sauber released on Saturday.
Another set of classified documents was discovered late last year at a former private office of Biden's, with the existence of those documents becoming public this month.
Sauber had traveled to Delaware on Thursday "to facilitate providing the document the President's personal counsel found on Wednesday to the Justice Department," he said in a statement sent to Mediaite. "While I was transferring it to the DOJ officials who accompanied me, five additional pages with classification markings were discovered among the material with it, for a total of six pages. The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of them."
Attorney General Merrick Garland earlier this week announced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the circumstances surrounding the classified document discoveries.
Sauber reaffirmed on Saturday that the White House "will cooperate with the newly-appointed Special Counsel."
