Biden’s personal attorneys and the White House counsel were present when Justice Department agents conducted a 12-hour search of Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home on Friday. During that time, they uncovered six additional classified documents, which they have since seized control of.
According to reports, some of the records date back at least 14 years to when Biden was in the Senate. Some came from his time serving as vice president.
When he presided over the Senate Foreign Relations Committee from 2007 to 2009, Biden would have had access to several confidential records.

This information may also help to explain why White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain has just announced his resignation; he is jumping ship since he knows they are sinking.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre merely responded that Biden “often travels to Delaware on the weekend. I don’t have anything else to share,” when asked if his weekend excursion was connected to the issue with the sensitive information.
However, according to Bauer on Saturday, the White House Counsel’s Office and the President’s personal legal team were sent to monitor the “thorough search.”

Biden’s private counsel reportedly searched the Rehoboth Beach residence for official records but came up empty-handed.
The investigation will undoubtedly disrupt the president’s bid for reelection in 2024 and offer fodder for GOP-led congressional investigations into the president and his scandal-riddled son, Hunter.

Biden, who acknowledged depositing the documents “in the wrong place” on Thursday, had disguised the discovery in November while also criticizing former President Donald Trump for committing the same offense by storing classified information in his Mar-A-Lago residence.
However, the president stated that he had “no regrets” over concealing the finding in his own house.
