In Joe Biden’s house, the Justice Department discovers further secret documents.

Six additional materials from vice-presidential and senate terms are discovered through a new search

The US justice department conducted a new search of President Joe Biden’s house in Wilmington, Delaware, and discovered six additional things, including classified documents, the president’s attorney claimed in a statement late Saturday.

According to his attorney Bob Bauer, some of the top-secret papers and “surrounding materials” came from the time that Biden served as the senator for Delaware from 1973 until 2009. The vice president served in the Obama administration from 2009 to 2017, according to other papers, according to Bauer.

According to the attorney, the justice department also took several notes that Biden had personally scribbled while serving as vice president during the Friday search, which lasted more than 12 hours.

“To allow DOJ to conduct a search of the full premises for potential vice-presidential records and potential classified information,” Bauer said, the president gave access to “his home.”

The lawyer said that neither Biden nor his wife were present at the time of the search. Biden is spending the weekend in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

According to Bauer, the president’s personal and White House lawyers were present during the search, which was planned in advance with Biden’s lawyers by Justice Department investigators.

Other sensitive federal documents were found at Biden’s Wilmington home this month, and in a private office he kept open at a think tank in Washington, DC, after he left his position as vice president in the Obama administration in 2017.

Bauer did not make it apparent in his statement on Saturday where the documents were discovered in the Wilmington residence. The prior top-secret paperwork was discovered in the garage of the house and a nearby storage facility.

The search demonstrates how quickly federal agents are advancing their investigation into the secret papers discovered in Biden’s possession. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to look into the situation this month.

Robert Hur, a special counsel, is looking into how the president and his staff handled recently leaked secret documents from the Obama administration.

White House

According to the White House, all of the documents found before the DOJ search on Friday were located by Biden’s attorneys. According to information made available to the public, the most recent search was the first time that federal law enforcement officials searched Biden’s home addresses for official documents.

Republicans have drawn parallels between the investigation and the current inquiry into former president Donald Trump’s handling of secret documents after he left office. The Biden team cooperated with investigators and provided over those papers, according to the White House. Up until an FBI search of Trump’s Florida club in August, he resisted doing so.

The president has maintained that the earlier discovery of classified material at his house raised no new legal or political issues, but the search raises both of those.

Biden stated on Thursday that he has “no regrets” about holding off publicly announcing the finding of classified documents at his former office prior to the midterm elections and that he is certain the situation will be resolved.

During a visit to California on Thursday, Biden told reporters, “There is no there, there.”

Since the Justice Department investigators came upon Biden’s papers, Trump has claimed that they are treating his successor differently.

When will the FBI search Joe Biden’s numerous residences, possibly even the White House? Trump stated earlier this month in a social media post.
