The US Department of Justice found additional classified material in a search of Biden’s home

In a statement Saturday at Bauer’s Wilmington home, he did not say where the documents were found. The previous classified documents were found in the garage of the house and in a nearby storage area.

The search shows that federal investigators are quickly moving forward with their investigation into classified documents found in Biden’s possession. This month, US Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate the case.

Robert Hurr, the special counsel appointed during the process, is investigating how the president and his team handled classified Obama-era documents recently found in Biden’s personal possessions.

Biden’s lawyers obtained all the documents found in the DOJ search on Friday, the White House reported. The latest search marks the first time federal law enforcement officials have sought government documents at Biden’s private address, according to publicly released records.

Republicans have compared the investigation to former President Donald Trump’s handling of classified documents after his presidency. The White House announced that Biden’s team had cooperated with authorities in the investigation and provided the documents. Trump in 2016 They resisted doing so until an FBI raid at a Florida resort in August.

The search will heighten legal and political concerns for the president, who previously found classified material in his residence and former office to be ultimately deemed useless.

Biden said Thursday that he had “no regrets” about not publicly disclosing the discovery of classified documents in his former office before the midterm elections and acknowledged that the matter would be resolved.

“It’s not there, it’s not there,” Biden told reporters during a trip to California on Thursday.

Since the discovery of the Biden documents, Trump has complained that Justice Department investigators are treating his successor differently.

“When will the FBI raid more of Joe Biden’s homes, maybe even the White House?” Trump said in a social media post earlier this month.
