Federal investigators found and seized more classified materials during a search of President Biden’s Delaware home, some dating back to his years in the Senate, Biden’s lawyer announced Saturday.
Bob Bauer, Biden’s newly acquired personal lawyer, said the Justice Department took six documents marked classified and some of Biden’s notes during a Friday search that lasted 13 hours.
The department “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,” Bauer said in a statement.
Other classified documents were found in Biden’s think tank office in November, before the election, and more recently at Biden’s home by White House lawyers.
The President said Thursday, the day before the newest search, that he had “no regrets” about keeping the discovery of mishandled classified documents dating to his vice presidency under wraps until after last year’s midterms.
