Pressure is mounting for the Biden administration to unveil the Delaware guest home list
Pressure is mounting for the Biden administration to release visitor logs for his home in Wilmington, Delaware, after it was revealed Thursday that classified documents were kept there in his garage and an adjacent room.
“We need to know why President Biden refused to release his visitor logs at his Delaware residences while secret documents were hidden in the garage, even though foreign visitors with off-book meetings could have had access to that information,” the No 3rd House Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik on Thursday, according to The Washington Times.
During Thursday’s briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dodged any obligation to release the Delaware visitor logs.
“Let’s not forget what we did here in the White House. We introduced something that the last administration abolished, which was … to issue, to make sure there’s a White House Minutes, an extensive White House Minutes,” Jean-Pierre said.
“I’m telling you, we did something that the last administration abolished, which was to institute White House protocols. Did you ask the last administration why they got rid of the White House Minutes?’ She added.

The White House has declined to release visitor logs from Biden’s lakefront home in Wilmington, Delaware (pictured), where he spends most weekends — and has conducted most of the 2020 campaign due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic
She asked that question to Fox News’ Peter Doocy, who had been inquiring about the logs.
“I was a campaign reporter covering Joe Biden,” Doocy replied.
Former President Donald Trump did not release visitation logs for the White House or his properties in Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster, where he frequently spent weekends and vacationed.
When The New York Post’s Steven Nelson tried to step in and ask if the Biden White House would release the guest list, she turned him down.
‘Oh, I am sorry. I called the gentleman who wanted to ask a question unrelated to this,” she said.
Jean-Pierre couldn’t provide a number when asked how many people were in and out of the Penn Biden Center and the Wilmington residence.
“This is under review and I would refer you to the Department of Justice,” she said.
Thursday’s White House briefing was overwhelmed by questions about the earlier announcement of the appointment of a special counsel over the discovery of classified documents in Biden’s old office and lakefront home in Wilmington.
During the announcement, Attorney General Merrick Garland said documents were found in Wilmington on Dec. 20 and early Thursday morning.
The White House only publicly acknowledged the documents found in Wilmington on Thursday morning.
Biden confirmed to reporters at the end of a speech on economic progress that the documents “as well as my Corvette” were kept in a locked garage.
The Biden White House has long refused to provide additional transparency by publicly releasing visitor logs from Wilmington — despite the president’s propensity to spend almost every weekend at the Delaware house.
When the New York Post attempted to gain access to this information using a Freedom of Information Act request, the newspaper was told by the Secret Service in September that “no relevant records” had been found.
Rep. James Comer, who took over the powerful House Oversight Committee just last week, said at the time: “The claim that there are no visitor logs for President Biden’s Delaware residence is a bunch of Malarkey.”
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, a Republican from Pennsylvania, recalled Thursday how Biden conducted 2020 essentially from his Wilmington home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Biden hid in his basement during the 2020 campaign. Biden hid secret documents in the garage. What else is Biden hiding in his house? Reschenthaler tweeted.
