Biden’s Delaware House Examined By US Justice Dept.
Bob Bauer, President Joe Biden’s personal lawyer, announced on Saturday (01.21.2023) that the US Department of Justice had examined Biden’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware on Friday, finding six new classified documents. The search, which began at 9:45 a.m. and ended at 10:30 p.m., yielded documents dated as far back as Biden’s senate years (1973-2009) and his time as vice president (2009-2017).
The White House confirmed Saturday that a third batch of documents had been found in the Delaware house in searches conducted by Biden’s lawyers. Bauer clarified that in order to expedite the process, they had allowed the Justice Department access to the house to look for classified material. White House and Biden’s legal staff members had been present throughout the entire search procedure.
The Justice Department had taken possession of the six marked secret documents, as well as Biden’s handwritten notes from his years as VP. Biden also expressed his full cooperation with the Justice Department, with his special counsel Richard Sauber adding that the president wanted to make sure to keep his distance from Donald Trump’s (2017-2021) legal situation.
The case of Biden’s classified documents being found in the Penn think tank had come to light in January of this year, with Biden’s lawyers themselves handing them over to authorities – unlike what happened with the FBI raid in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
