Amid all of the hullabaloo of Donald Trump’s Manhattan indictment, a stunning series of revelations have come to light regarding Joe Biden’s improper storage of documents at both personal and professional properties all over the east coast.
The situation with these absconded-with documents began to unfold just days before the 2022 midterms, but news of the now-President’s possession of these sensitive materials did not become public until months later.

While the Penn Center documents don’t appear to contain any classified material, it is widely believed that the currently unaccounted-for boxes from Wilmington might.
