U.S. President Joe Biden's legal team found a second set of classified documents dating from his time as vice president at his Delaware home, the White House said on Thursday.

The admission about the discovery in a storage space in the garage of Biden's Wilmington home came in a statement from Richard Sauber, a special counsel to the president. The acknowledgement came after the White House on Monday said other documents were found in November in the closet of an office at a University of Pennsylvania think tank in Washington that Biden had used after leaving the vice presidency.

Biden said his lawyers notified the Justice Department immediately and he was "cooperating fully" with a Justice Department review.

"They finished the review last night," Biden told reporters. "They discovered a small number of documents of classified marketing in storage areas and file cabinets in my home, in my personal library," he said.
