The fact that President Joe Biden is seemingly embroiled in a scandal didn’t stop him from taking yet another weekend getaway, but his destination of choice left Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy wondering, “isn’t that a potential crime scene?”

During Friday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was more than reluctant regarding the topic of classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president located at his former office at the University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, and his home in Wilmington, Delaware. Referring questions from friendlier reporters to the Department of Justice and legal counsel, Jean-Pierre passed over Doocy altogether.
As such, when the White House reporter joined “America Reports” and spoke with John Roberts Friday, he offered up the question he would have asked after commenting on not getting called on, “I don’t know why.”
“If I would’ve had an opportunity to ask a question, the first one I have on my sheet was: Why is President Biden going to Wilmington today, isn’t that a potential crime scene?” Doocy explained.
Biden reportedly arrived at his Wilmington home, the same one where he admitted classified documents were found kept in his garage alongside his 1967 Corvette, marking his 52nd trip to the Delaware residence since his inauguration, according to the New York Post. Thus far, 151 days of his administration have been spent in part or in full there.
“We are not getting a ton of new information today about the president’s knowledge of this probe, about his thoughts on the probe,” Doocy continued. “Everything is being referred to either the private lawyer, Bob Bauer, or the special counsel Richard Sauber–the special counsel here at the White House–basically the president’s government lawyer, and Karine Jean-Pierre said today that she was not involved in any of the decisions about when to go public, about how to go public with any of this.”
“So, it seems–and like today there were more questions about other topics besides the documents, growing document scandal–I think we can call it a scandal at this point–and so it’s unclear how much more there is gonna be, how much more new information were gonna get from this White House about any of this other than they ‘take it seriously’ and that they’re ‘gonna cooperate,'” he added.
Meanwhile, as previously reported, Biden’s extensive presence at the Wilmington home has re-upped calls for the release of visitor logs for the location, for which, nearing the two-year mark of the administration, there has been nothing but secrecy over.
On Thursday, Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) issued a letter to the president that read in part, “As a matter of national security and transparency, the public deserves to know who visited this residence and had access to these unsecured, classified documents.”

“I call on you to release the visitor logs for your Wilmington residence in light of this news and deliver on your promise of transparency to the American people,” Buck said.
Republican control of the House of Representatives also allowed Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) as chair of the House Oversight Committee to issue a letter to White House counsel Stuart Delery, where he noted that documents had reportedly been found in locations at Biden’s home other than the garage and that as recently as 2018, Hunter Biden’s driver’s license listed the address as his home.
In the letter, the Kentucky legislator requested the names and security clearances of all aides or lawyers assigned to search for classified documents, the locations searched, the documents themselves, and all communications between the White House and the National Archives Record Administration (NARA) or Justice Department pertaining to the documents no later than Jan. 27.
Speaking with the New York Post, Comer said, “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.”
“The White House needs to release visitor logs to the public and bring transparency to this administration,” he added.
