The Biden presidency has been shrouded in secrecy since the beginning of President Joe Biden’s term. Recently, a report from the Washington Examiner disclosed that Biden’s lawyers assisted in the transfer of documents from a law firm in Boston, Massachusetts in November. This information was made public on Friday following a request made under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The emails, spanning over 70 pages, revealed coordination between Biden’s legal team and the National Archives regarding the transfer of documents from the law firm Hemenway & Barnes in Boston. On November 7th, 2021, the General Counsel of the National Archives, Gary Stern, wrote, “Please make sure that the boxes in your Boston office are kept secure in a locked location and not accessible by anyone.” The next day, Stern requested that one of Biden’s lawyers, Bob Bauer, and Patrick Moore, a partner at the law firm, transfer the boxes from the law firm to the JFK Library. Moore responded by saying he would work with his law partner to handle the matter.
The content of the documents at the Boston law firm remains a mystery, and it is unclear whether any classified documents were included in the cache. This incident involving the law firm occurred just five days after Biden’s legal team reported finding classified documents at the Penn Biden Center in Washington D.C. According to The Washington Times, Moore had transferred a set of personal documents from the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement to his law office in Boston prior to the discovery of classified documents.
This revelation adds to the growing classified documents scandal surrounding President Biden. The reason for transferring documents sought by the National Archives to the Boston law firm remains unclear. When asked about the boxes on Friday, the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, referred inquiries to the office of the counsel. The White House counsel’s office did not offer a comment in response to the request.
The enigma surrounding the Biden administration continues to escalate as further details emerge regarding the involvement of the President’s lawyers in the transfer of documents from a law office in Boston in November. Emails disclosed on Friday through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request indicated collaboration between Biden’s legal team and the National Archives in transferring documents from Hemenway & Barnes to the JFK Library.
It is unknown what documents were contained in these boxes and whether or not classified documents were among them. It is also unclear why documents sought after by the National Archives were transferred to this Boston law office. This incident took place just five days after Biden’s lawyers claim to have made the first discovery of classified documents at the Penn Biden Center in Washington D.C., adding another layer to this classified documents scandal.
When asked to comment on the boxes, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred questions to the counsel’s office, which did not respond to a request for comment. As more information continues to come out about this situation, it is becoming increasingly clear that there is much more to this story than meets the eye. The American public deserves transparency from President Joe Biden and his administration, but so far they have been left with more questions than answers.
