A box labeled “Important Documents + Photos” was pictured unsealed on a table at President Joe Biden’s home in Delaware.
The photo shows family photos laid out on the chair-lined dining table before a gathering, along with a white file box with brown tape on it.
“Important documents + photos” is scrawled on the cover in black felt-tip pen.
The box was open and ajar in the photo believed to be taken by Hunter Biden and found on his laptop, as reported by the New York Post, which also revealed how he made over 160 trips in 52 days took home.
A box labeled “Important Documents + Photos” appears to have been left unsealed on a table at President Joe Biden’s Delaware home
During this time he is said to have been involved in controversial deals with a Chinese energy company.
The home also contained evidence of Hunter’s drug and alcohol addictions, as well as text messages between him and his mother, First Lady Jill Biden.
The discovery of the classified documents has sparked controversy, but President Biden has stated that “a handful of documents were filed in the wrong place” and that “I think you’ll find there’s nothing there. I regret nothing. I follow what the lawyers told me, what they want me to do.”
Hunter Biden recommended Cathy Chung as his father’s administrative assistant and helped oversee the packing and moving of Biden’s file. There is no indication that she was aware of any secret documents.
This latest photo adds another layer to the confusing classified information debacle that saw the files end up in a locked cabinet at the Penn Biden Center, where they were discovered in November 2022 along with another stash in the garage of Biden’s Delaware home.
Last week, Biden insisted his garage was a safe place in an exchange with a reporter.
“Secret materials next to your Corvette? What did you think you were doing?’ Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden.
“My Corvette is in a locked garage, okay? So it’s not like they’re sitting on the street,” Biden replied.
“So it was in a locked garage?” Doocy insisted.
“Yeah, just like my Corvette,” Biden claimed.
Those involved in the process include Biden’s former staffers, General Services Administration staff, and the staff of the think tank, an entity that would later fill roles for senior staffers who remained in Biden’s orbit, including now Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who served as director of the center.
The woman who oversaw the packaging and shipping of Biden’s documents in 2017 was former administrative assistant Kathy Chung, who secured the position with a well-placed recommendation from Hunter Biden, who touted her skills to his father.
“Hunter Biden recommended it. They worked together at the Department of Commerce years ago,’ the person said. Hunter informed her of the opportunity, asked her if she was interested and found out she was.
“He spoke to her father about her,” the person said. So does former Delaware Senator Ted Kaufman, a longtime Biden associate who is one of the trio of Democratic senators she had worked for in the past.
Hunter Biden worked at the agency under Secretary William Daley at the end of the Clinton Administration from 1998 to 2001, having worked at a bank early in a career in law and lobbying.
Then as now, in many ways he had his father’s ear.
Photos like this one of Hunter Biden were found on the same laptop as the emails just before the 2020 presidential election
A Biden attorney discovered documents marked “secret” while vacating Biden’s old office at the Penn Biden Center near the Capitol. The discovery would spark the events that led to the appointment of a special counsel
Chung was the first person publicly identified as having met federal investigators on the matter. She spoke with the office of US Attorney John Lausch before AG Merrick Garland appointed Special Counsel Robert Hur to oversee the document investigation.
Officials who worked with Biden at the time and remain associated with him are senior advisers Steve Richetti and Kate Bedingfield, and senior adviser Mike Donilon.
The former assistant helped oversee the packing of files during the busy end of Biden’s second term as vice president. That was a time when Biden saw brisk activity even in his final days in office. It required his office to function even when things were put away for safekeeping.
There is no indication that Chung knew the document boxes also contained documents marked as classified, which Biden attorney Patrick Moore discovered when he vacated Biden’s former DC office in November.
At least a few documents were found in Biden’s garage at his home in Wilmington, Delaware. Biden’s sons Beau and Hunter converted the car for him
“She helped pack the contents of the vice president’s office, including the documents, and was responsible for getting them into the interim office,” said the person who said Chung was “responsible” for the move. “She just didn’t know the contents of every box that was being moved.”
Intermingled with alleged 10 government documents, some marked “top secret,” were the contents of desks and cabinets from Biden’s old office, papers related to the funeral of late son Beau Biden, and a document related to home repairs at Biden Wilmington home – a page which itself appeared to contain additional classified material.
The GSA previously confirmed that Biden’s team vacated his interim office in July 2017 as the documents began the next leg of their journey, heading southeast across the city. The Penn Biden Center did not respond to a request for comment on exactly how long the boxes of supplies remained at the Chinatown site and who had access to them.
The discovery of the documents has posed an immediate political problem for Biden, who said Thursday he had “no regrets” about the situation and berated reporters for asking him about it while touring the devastation in California.
“There’s nothing there,” he said. In addition to the special counsel, investigators from the House of GOP have already begun sending out requests for information.
Hunter Biden’s role was previously identified in emails found on his infamous laptop.
“Thank you for calling and thinking of me,” Chung wrote to Hunter in May 2012, according to Fox News, after being suggested for the job when her predecessor, Michelle Smith, left.
“After the initial shock of taking in what you said…how could I miss an opportunity to work for the Vice President of the United States!!!!”
As DailyMail.com reported earlier this week, a newly emerged photo from the laptop appears to show the president’s son driving the classic Corvette Stingray outside the same Wilmington home where the car – and the documents marked “secret” – were stored .
At the White House on Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre reiterated that Biden and his team were working with investigators after alerting the National Archives following the discovery of classified material.
She again declined further comment, even to specify what Biden was referring to when he said he had no regrets and referred the matter to the Justice Department.
