Biden files: White House says NO visitor logs for Wilmington home where classified pages were found

No visitor logs are available for President Joe Biden’s private home in Delaware, where six classified documents were found, the White House said Monday.

The White House Office emphasized that the President’s home in Wilmington is “personal” and therefore no records are available of who goes in and out.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) on Sunday sent a letter to Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain asking for access to all visitor logs for the Delaware home.

In the letter, Comer accused Biden of “abusing classified material that raises questions about whether it endangered our national security.”

“Without a list of those who visited his residence, the American people will never know who had access to these highly sensitive documents,” the Kentucky Republican wrote.

The Penn-Biden Center was used by Biden as his personal office from around 2017 until the launch of his 2020 campaign.

Ten top-secret pages were reportedly found there by Biden’s personal attorneys when they cleaned up the office. So far, six have been found at his home in the Wilmington area.

“Like every president in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” the White House office told Fox News.

“But upon taking office, President Biden restored the norm and tradition of keeping White House visitor logs, including publishing them regularly after the previous administration ended them.”

DailyMail.com has asked the White House for confirmation.

Biden’s political nemesis Donald Trump reacted with glee to the news on Monday.

“The White House has just announced that there are no logs or information whatsoever of visitors to the Wilmington house and the weak, unlocked and unsecured but now very famous garage. Maybe they are smarter than we think!’ Trump wrote on his Truth social app.

“This is one of what appears to be many places where TOP SECRET documents are kept (in a large pile on the damp ground).”

He added of his Florida home, where dozens of classified documents were seized during an FBI raid in August: “Mar-a-Lago is a highly secured facility with security cameras throughout and is monitored by staff and our amazing Secret Service. I have INFO about everyone!’

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to oversee Biden’s handling of classified documents after the papers from his vice presidency were first discovered at the Penn Biden Center on November 2, 2022.

The first 10 had been found in a closet among Biden’s personal belongings as private attorneys cleaned up the president’s old office.

Subsequent searches initially revealed another page found at Biden’s Delaware home, and on Saturday officials admitted five others were found there as well.

The President has pledged to take the matter “seriously” and to work with the National Archives and the Justice Department at every step.

However, questions are still piling up about why it took the White House so long to admit the existence of the documents — which it did after CBS News first ran the story about the Penn-Biden Center — and who had access to the papers in Biden’s house.

Whether anyone with “foreign connections” had access to the documents, likely relating to the President’s son, Hunter Biden. Hunter’s overseas operations in China and Ukraine have been under scrutiny for years, and the US Attorney in Delaware is also investigating him for possible financial fraud.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre declined to say during a news conference last week whether visitor logs existed for the Greenville home.

Instead, she pointed out that the Biden administration has expanded transparency regarding White House visitor logs, which had been severely curtailed under Trump.
