The Justice Department has searched President Biden’s home in Delaware and located six documents containing classification markings and also took possession of some of his notes, the president’s lawyer said Saturday.
Bob Bauer, a lawyer for the president, said the Justice Department conducted the search at Biden’s Wilmington residence on Friday. He said it lasted about 13 hours.
The Justice 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.
The prosecutors also “took for further review personally handwritten notes from the vice-presidential years,” he said.
In a separate statement, Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, said that the “DOJ conducted a comprehensive search of the president’s Wilmington residence, and it concluded late Friday night.”
“Neither the President nor the First Lady were present during the search,” Sauber added.
