WASHINGTON (AP) – Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed a special counsel to investigate the presence of documents with classified markings found at President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, and at an office in Washington.

Earlier Thursday, Biden acknowledged that a document with classified markings from his time as vice president was found in his “personal library” at his home in Delaware, along with other classified documents found in his garage.

Biden told reporters at the White House that he was “cooperating fully and completely” with a Justice Department investigation.

Biden did not say when the latest documents were found, only that his lawyers’ review of potential storage locations was completed Wednesday night.
