President Joe Biden’s senior aide, Annie Tomasini, who reportedly told Hunter Biden she loved him multiple times, handled the president’s classified documents at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC, 20 months before Joe Biden’s lawyer disclosed the discovery of the documents to the public, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) revealed this week.

Tomasini inspected the classified documents on March 18, 2021, 20 months before the president’s team said they discovered the documents, and just two months after Joe Biden assumed office, according to a demand letter from Comer to Joe Biden’s White House Counsel.
The letter also details the president’s timeline omitted multiple visits from at least five White House employees. Those include Dana Remus, Anthony Bernal, Ashley Williams, Annie Tomasini, and an unknown staffer. “There is no reasonable explanation as to why this many White House employees and lawyers were so concerned with retrieving boxes they believed only contained personal documents and materials,” Comer wrote:
Indeed, their visits dated back to March 2021, when Annie Tomasini initiated contact with Penn Biden Center to schedule a visit and “take inventory of what was left at the Center[.]” Importantly, no public statement has reflected that Ashley Williams, another White House employee, allegedly removed boxes from Penn Biden Center on October 13, 2022. To date, the White House has not disclosed what was in the boxes Ms. Williams retrieved or where they were delivered.
The White House claims that “what appear[ed] to be Obama-Biden Administration records, including a small number of documents with classified markings” were found at Penn Biden Center on November 2, 2022. The White House and President Biden’s personal attorney, Bob Bauer, further claim that National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was contacted on the same day. NARA “took possession of the materials the following morning.” Both the White House and Mr. Bauer, however, have failed to disclose that Pat Moore, President Biden’s personal attorney, scheduled a FedEx pickup with Penn Biden Center employees for November 2, 2022. The Committee has uncovered that a FedEx worker showed up to Penn Biden Center on November 2, 2022, to “load the documents and then [take them] down to the loading dock” to be shipped out. The Committee finds it troublesome that boxes of documents were potentially removed from Penn Biden Center prior to NARA’s arrival and assessment.
The omissions, along with Tomasini’s involvement and date of her document inspection. raises concerns given her ties to Hunter Biden. In emails reviewed by Fox News, Tomasini referenced him as her “brother,” and often ended her correspondence with “LY,” an abbreviation for “love you.”
“Why did the White House and President Biden’s attorney omit this critical piece of information? The Biden White House may have known President Biden had a document problem as early as 2021 and enlisted at least five White House employees to coordinate, organize, move and remove boxes from Penn Biden Center through 2022,” Comer told Fox News.
President Joe Biden is under investigation for mishandling classified documents by Special Counsel Robert Hur, appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland on January 12, 2023. (Read more: Breitbart, 10/13/2023) (Archive)
