Notebooks used by President Joe Biden during his time as vice president were among the items taken by the FBI during a search of one of his Delaware homes last week, according to a person familiar with the investigation.
These notebooks, which Biden wrote in while serving as vice president under former President Barack Obama, were taken by the FBI due to some of the notes relating to his work as vice president, which could refer to classified information, the unidentified person said. This person also claimed that while none of the notebooks had classified markings on them, some of the notes could be considered classified due to their sensitive content, according to NBC News.
“As noted in the statement released on January 14, consistent with our view of the requirements of our cooperation with DOJ in this matter, we will not comment on the accuracy of reports of this nature,” said a spokesperson for Biden’s personal lawyer, Bob Bauer.
Written inside the notebooks were handwritten notes from Biden, with some relating to his personal life and family while others detailed his current experiences and thoughts of his time as vice president, according to the unidentified person. It is unclear how many notebooks were taken by the FBI, but the source claimed that it was a large amount.
Notebooks containing notes about personal matters that get mixed with notes on government business would likely be considered personal property as long as Biden never shared them with any government staff members during his time as vice president.
