In the wake of the latest revelation of classified documents found at President Biden’s home, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis commented Wednesday, calling the finding a “security risk.”
Hunter Biden lived at the Delaware home where Joe Biden’s aides recently recovered several classified records.
Hunter identified the residence in Wilmington as his address after his 2017 divorce from his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle. He even falsely claimed he owned the site on a 2018 background check form that was part of a rental application.
But since he was living there, Hunter had “unrestricted access to America’s secrets while he was addicted to drugs, hammering out shady foreign business deals and under federal investigation,” the Post noted. The paper also pointed out that Hunter was a potential blackmail target from prostitutes, whose services he frequently engaged while claiming the home as his residence.

But the real eye-popping news was that Hunter was paying his father $49,910 in monthly rent to live there.
“Now you find out he had them (classified documents) stashed behind his Corvette at his house that Hunter had access to, which is definitely a security risk in my book,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on Wednesday.
Last Thursday, Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy asked the golden question to Biden, “Classified materials, next to your Corvette? What were you thinking?”
“My Corvette is in a locked garage, okay? It’s not like they’re sitting out on the street,” Biden said.

President Joe Biden’s legal team has discovered a second set of classified documents from his time as vice president at a storage space in the garage of his home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House confirmed on Thursday.
According to Reuters, a single document was also found in a room adjacent to the garage in Wilmington, and no documents were found in the Bidens’ Rehoboth Beach home, Richard Sauber said in a statement.
The administration is “fully cooperating” to ensure that the records are handled properly, Sauber said.
The statement by Sauber, a special counsel to Biden, came after the initial discovery of classified documents in an office used by Biden after his vice presidency was first reported on Monday by CBS News.
The classification level, number, and precise location of the new documents were not immediately clear.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has assigned the U.S. attorney in Chicago to review documents marked classified that were found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, two sources with knowledge of the inquiry told CBS News.

Prior to new reports about the second batch of government materials on Wednesday, the White House refused to answer a number of critical questions about the classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president discovered inside a private office last fall, citing an ongoing Department of Justice review.
“So I think it just shows you what some of these folks do, they had all this stuff and say now they’re acting like, you know, this is something like it’s not a big deal,” DeSantis said Wednesday. “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. You can’t have two different sets of rules based on your political party.”
The documents, the president said, were found in “a box, locked cabinet – or at least a closet.”
Incoming House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) sent letters Tuesday to the White House and National Archives demanding access to President Biden’s recovered classified documents.

The initial set of classified documents found at an office President Joe Biden formerly used at a D.C. think tank included briefings about Iran, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, according to CNN, as the Justice Department conducts a review to determine whether there was any criminal wrongdoing.
The records were dated between 2013 and 2016, corresponding to the time Biden served as vice president, CNN reported, citing a source with knowledge of the documents.
The discovery of the records has drawn comparisons with documents found last year at President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate.
