Another search of President Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home Friday found six more classified documents, according to an NBC News report.
The 13-hour search of the president’s primary residence was conducted at the request of the White House, the report noted. The report cited a White House official and another source for determining who initiated the search of the home.
“On January 20, 2023, the FBI executed a planned, consensual search of the President’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware,” Joseph D. Fitzpatrick, an assistant U.S. attorney to U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois John Lausch, told Fox News Saturday.
Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrived Friday at the Wilmington residence around 9:45 a.m. and searched roughly 12 hours for documents, according to the report. Agents completed their search around 10:30 p.m.
Friday’s find of classified documents unlawfully possessed by the president marks the third find of such material in the Wilmington home. First, a box of classified documents were found January 11 in a box near Biden’s Corvette Stingray in the home’s attached garage. The next day, another document was found in the home’s storage space, near the garage. Two days later, five more classified documents were found in the library.
Classified documents were first found at the Penn Biden Center, in Washington, D.C., November 2, which was publicly revealed in a January 9 CBS News report. One of the documents found there was marked Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information, the highest level of classification in the U.S. government, an NBC News report revealed.
Biden’s personal attorney, Bob Bauer, stressed Saturday how the president and his administration were cooperating fully with the DOJ’s investigation.
“At the outset of this matter, the President directed his personal attorneys to fully cooperate with the Department of Justice,” Bauer said. The president’s lawyer said they reported to the DOJ a small number of classified documents found at the president’s Wilmington home.
“In the interest of moving the process forward as expeditiously as possible, we offered to provide prompt access to his home to allow DOJ to conduct a search of the entire premises for potential vice-presidential records and potential classified material,” Bauer added.
