DOJ search of Biden’s Delaware home results in more seized documents
Officials from the Justice Department recovered additional classified items Friday after searching the Wilmington, Del., home of President Joe Biden for nearly 13 hours, the president’s personal lawyer said Saturday. The items recovered include six batches of records that contained an unspecified number of documents with classified markings.
The search began around 9:45 a.m. and concluded at 10:30 p.m. and covered all working, living and storage spaces in the home, said Bob Bauer, Biden’s personal attorney. Representatives of both Biden’s personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s Office were present for the search. Bauer said the paperwork was from Biden’s time in the Senate and as vice president. Justice Department officials also took handwritten notes from the vice presidential years, he said. “DOJ had full access to the president’s home, including personally handwritten notes, files, papers, binders, memorabilia, to-do lists, schedules, and reminders going back decades,” he said.
