1. Report: Biden aides find second set of classified papers

Aides to President Biden have found more classified papers in a location separate from the private Washington office where his personal lawyers found the first set of 10 documents with classified markings, NBC News reported Wednesday, citing a person familiar with the matter. Biden aides have been searching for more classified material ever since the first batch was discovered in November at an office Biden used after his vice presidency, according to NBC. Further details about the second discovery were not immediately available, including the number and location of the papers, and how sensitive the documents were. Attorney General Merrick Garland has asked a U.S. attorney appointed by former President Donald Trump to review the discoveries.
