The “planned search” of Biden’s Rehoboth Beach home by FBI agents is in addition to those conducted in Wilmington, Delaware, and the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C.
Bob Bauer, personal attorney for President Joe Biden, disclosed that the Justice Department is conducting a new search of the U.S. leader’s rest home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as part of investigations into classified documents.
“Today, with the President’s full support and cooperation, the Department is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware,” Bob Bauer said in a statement.
The search by agents of the FBI (an agency under the Department of Justice) is being conducted “in accordance with standard procedures” of the Department and “in the interest of operational security and integrity, we sought to do this work without prior public notice, and we agreed to cooperate,” the lawyer notes.
The new search of classified documents is in addition to those conducted at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, and at his private office at the Penn Biden Center think tank in Washington.
It was in January that the White House officially announced that classified documents had been found since last November in Joe Biden’s offices from the time when he was vice president of Barack Obama (2009-2017) and when he was a senator (1973-2009). Since then, the US government has announced several times the discovery of more documents.
Meanwhile, last January 12, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of special prosecutor Robert Hur, who would be in charge of studying all the classified papers found.
In addition to President Joe Biden, classified papers have also been found on former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence, a situation that led the National Archives to ask the former officials to review their personal records.
“The responsibility to abide by the Presidential Records Act – the regulation that requires all records of an administration to be turned over to the National Archives – does not diminish when an administration ends,” the National Archives said in a letter at the time.
