According to a new report from NBC News, sources familiar with the Biden investigation say that the former Vice President kept a “large” stash of notebooks, and all of them have been seized by the FBI.
The report states that although there aren’t classified documents contained in these notebooks, his handwritten notes may have very well been related to highly sensitive information.
This further proves the fact that Biden improperly handled classified information in more ways than one.
Notebooks that President Joe Biden wrote in during his time as vice president are among the items the FBI took from one of his Delaware homes during a search there last week, according to a person familiar with the investigation.
The notebooks were seized because Biden’s notes on some of the pages relate to his official business as vice president, including details of his diplomatic engagements during the Obama administration, and may refer to classified information, this same person said, adding that the notebooks do not have classified markings on them, but some of the handwritten notes inside them could be considered as such given their sensitive content.
The notebooks include a mix of handwritten notes from Biden on various topics, both personal and official, according to the person familiar with the seizure. On some pages Biden wrote down things about his family or his life unrelated to public office, said this same person. On other pages, he memorialized in writing some of his experiences or thoughts as vice president at the time, according to this same source.
The number of notebooks Biden kept is large, according to the person familiar with the details, but they did not know the precise number.
This discovery of documents raise serious questions about how well Biden followed procedure when handling classified documents and information.
And while the media obsesses over Mar-A-Lago documents that were highly secured and protected, they seem to not give as much attention or importance to Biden’s classified documents that were stuffed in a garage next to his Corvette.
Let’s hope Biden is held accountable for his crimes, but I don’t think any of us are holding our breath.
