White House Asked If Biden Engaged In 'Cover-Up' As Scandal Grows.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that President Biden takes secret information seriously, just days after an FBI investigation of his house in Wilmington, Delaware brought up a fourth set of documents with classified markings.

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy inquired whether there is “precedent for somebody running for president after the FBI raided their sock drawer?”

“Here’s what the president’s going to focus on. He’s going to focus on continuing to deliver for the American people. That’s his focus. That’s what he focuses on every day,” Jean-Pierre responded, adding that Biden does intend to run for president again in 2024.

The FBI conducted a 13-hour “planned, agreed search” of his Wilmington house on Friday and recovered “six items comprised of documents with classified marks,” according to the Justice Department.

The access road to President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Del., is seen from the media van on Jan. 13, 2023.

Some of the classified materials came from his time as a United States senator, while others came from his time as Vice President in the Obama administration.

Additional secret materials were discovered in Biden’s Wilmington garage and personal library, as well as at the Penn Biden Center think tank on November 2, 2022.

“The president has been very clear that he takes this very seriously when it comes to classified information when it comes to classified documents, and that his team has been fully cooperative with this legal matter,” Jean-Pierre said Monday, referring other questions to White House counsel.

Doocy also asked Jean-Pierrre if President Biden is involved in a “cover-up.” Republicans have slammed Biden’s handling of confidential data, calling the finding of classified documents at former President Trump’s house “extremely reckless” last year. Democrats have been more circumspect.

Senator Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told CNN on Sunday that Biden should be “embarrassed by the issue,” but that Trump has been more candid. “It is outrageous that either occurred,” Durbin told the news outlet. “But the reaction by the former president and the current president could not be in sharper contrast.”
