A recently unearthed document has revealed that President Joe Biden’s Delaware residence — where classified documents were discovered — was previously owned by his corrupt son, Hunter Biden, around the time when the documents were presumed to have been left in the home.
According to a document unearthed on Thursday by New York Post reporter Miranda Devine, Hunter Biden owned his father’s Wilmington, Delaware, residence in 2018.
Then-Vice President Joe Biden left the White House in 2017, and apparently stored classified documents in three separate locations. The first batch was discovered in his old office at the Penn-Biden Center in Washington, D.C. The second was found in his garage at his Delaware home, and the third batch — which consisted of only one document — was found inside the home.
Meanwhile, on a document titled “background screening request” signed in July 2018, Hunter Biden checked a box to indicate that he owned Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware.

The president has also previously acknowledged that his son has access to the garage where the documents were found. In an episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage” uploaded to YouTube on October 26, 2016, Joe Biden stated that his sons — Hunter Biden and now-deceased Beau Biden — had access to his garage to restore his infamous green Corvette.
“My two sons, Beau, who passed away, and my son Hunter decided as a Christmas gift to have the engine rebuilt for me,” he explained to Leno.

Meanwhile, the classified documents left in Biden’s old office reportedly included briefings with intelligence and military information about Iran, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. While it is unclear thus far what the subject of the documents found in Biden’s home was, the fact that the first batch involved Ukraine is concerning.
If the documents found in his home also contained information regarding Ukraine, the notion that Hunter Biden had access to them is even more troubling.
The Biden family business has conducted numerous deals in Ukraine, including one that allegedly led to Joe Biden threatening the Ukrainian government. In 2017, Hunter Biden was paid a salary of $83,000 per month for his position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company. He was appointed to that board in 2014 with no prior experience with the energy sector or Ukraine.
In 2015, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loans from Ukraine if their government did not fire a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma. As soon as Joe Biden left the White House in 2017, where he had visited Ukraine six times in seven years, Hunter Biden’s salary was cut in half.
All of this information lends credence to critics’ concerns over Hunter Biden potentially having unfettered access to classified documents concerning Ukraine while supposedly owning his father’s home where the documents were stored.
