Additional classified documents were found at President Biden’s home on Friday. Bob Bauer, Biden’s attorney, confirmed on Saturday evening that DOJ “took possession of materials it deemed within the scope of its inquiry, including six items consisting of documents with classification markings and surrounding materials, some of which were from the President’s service in the Senate and some of which were from his tenure as Vice President. DOJ also took for further review personally handwritten notes from the vice-presidential years.”
The search lasted more than twelve hours. It began at 9:45 a.m. and concluded at around 10:30 p.m. Neither the President nor the First Lady were present during the search in Wilmington, Delaware.
Richard Sauber, Special Counsel to the President, said Biden “has been committed to handling this responsibly because he takes this seriously.”
The news comes after Biden made a statement in California on Thursday that he has “no regrets” for not having revealed the discoveries of the documents back in November, before the midterms.
Biden criticized the press for wanting him to stop the information blackout and said, “you’re going to find there’s nothing there.”
