NBC reporter bravely asks two critical questions about the Biden classified docs: 'They did not tell the public until this leaked'

The mainstream media and Democrats have absolved President Joe Biden of wrongdoing after classified documents, some of which were marked "top secret," were discovered in his post-vice presidential office.

But NBC News correspondent Ken Dilanian spotlighted on Tuesday two critical questions that should be asked about the circumstances surrounding the discovery.

"There are some significant concerns here," Dilanian said on MSNBC. "A) how did these classified documents get to a place they shouldn’t have been and B) why did the White House sit on this for so long?"

"They knew six days before the November midterm. Joe Biden knew, his aides knew, yet they did not tell the public until this leaked to the news media," he added.

Those questions are especially important because the White House claims that Biden did not know the classified documents were being stored at his private office. Therefore, if Biden was unaware that they were there, who, having access to highly classified information, could have stored the documents in the office without Biden's knowledge?

Not only is the timing of the news suspicious and suggests the government is not being as transparent as the media claims, but we do not yet know whether Biden retained more classified documents in his office and whether investigators even searched for more.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has assigned U.S. Attorney John Lausch Jr., a Trump appointee, to investigate the discovery.

As Dilanian noted, Garland likely tasked Lausch with the investigation "to create an appearance of independence."

What is Biden saying?

Biden personally addressed the discovery of the classified documents on Tuesday while in Mexico.

The president claimed he was "surprised to learn that there were any government records that were taken there to that office," and he said he does not know what information the documents contain.

Sources told CNN the documents contain "intelligence memos and briefing materials" related to Ukraine, Iran, and the United Kingdom. Some of the documents were reportedly marked "top secret" with the "sensitive compartmented information" designation, which is typically reserved for highly classified intelligence.
