Bob Bauer, personal attorney for President Joe Biden, revealed that The Department of Justice conducts a new search at the rest home of the US president in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as part of investigations into classified documents.
“Today, with the full support and cooperation of the President, the Department is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware“Bob Bauer said in a statement.
The search by FBI agents (an agency dependent on the Department of Justice) is carried out “in accordance with the standard procedures” of the Department and “in the interest of operational security and integrity, this work was sought to be done without prior public notice, and we agreed to cooperate“says the lawyer.
The new search on the classified documents is in addition to those carried out at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, and at his private office in the Penn Biden Center think tank located in Washington.
It was in the month of January that The White House officially announced that classified documents had been found since last November in the offices of Joe Biden from the time in which he was vice president of Barack Obama (2009-2017) and in which he was a senator (1973-2009). Since then there have been several times that the US government has announced the discovery of more documents.
While on January 12, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of special counsel Robert Hur who would be in charge of studying all the classified papers found.
In addition to President Joe Biden, he has also been found classified papers to former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pencea situation that led the National Archives to ask the former officials to review their personal records.
“The responsibility of complying with the Presidential Records Law – the regulation that obliges the delivery of all the documents of an administration to the National Archives – does not diminish when a government ends,” the National Archives mentioned in a letter at the time.
