The Secret Service has admitted that they have some records of who visited Joe Biden’s Delaware home, despite claiming last week that they kept no visitor logs.
With the current scandal of Biden’s mishandling of classified documents in the garage of his Delaware residence ongoing, the Secret Service last week said that they do not “independently maintain [their] own visitor logs because it’s a private residence.”
Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for the agency said as much to the Associated Press on Sunday, adding that while they “screen” visitors who turn up at any of Biden’s private properties, they don’t maintain records of the checks. The White House further confirmed that they do not keep their own logs.
However, Guglielmi on Thursday slightly changed his tune. “While the Secret Service does generate law enforcement and criminal justice information records for various individuals who may come into contact with Secret Service protected sites, we are not able to comment further as this speaks to the means and methods of our protective operations,” he said.
Speaking anonymously to Fox News, a source “familiar with the situation” informed the news outlet that if Congress requests the background information on visitors, they will hand the details over to them.
“In light of the Biden family’s suspicious business schemes with foreign adversaries, Americans need to know who has visited President Biden’s Wilmington residence and had access to the stashed classified documents that sat in Biden’s garage,” Rep. James Comer, the new Oversight Committee chairman, told the New York Post last week.
A spokesman for the House Oversight Committee on Thursday confirmed that there are “several avenues to obtain information on who had access to classified documents at the Wilmington residence,” adding that the Committee will “pursue those avenues.”
The Secret Service in April last year said that there wer “no records located” that showed logs of Biden’s visitors, in a response to a FOIA request from the New York Post.
Despite Biden’s previous implication that the documents were locked away from anyone else’s access, photos dating from July 2017 revealed in a Washington Free Beacon report show Hunter Biden driving his father’s Corvette, which was stored with the documents, just outside the home.

Biden recently claimed that is illicit document satash i no big deal. If that is so, why did he make a big deal out of Trump processing government documents? At least Trump;s documents were in a secure location and not boxed up in a garage.
