Biden’s personal lawyer, Bob Bauer, said in a written statement that FBI agents searched Biden’s home in Willmington on Friday. In the statement, it was stated that during the search, which lasted approximately 13 hours, 6 confidential documents belonging to Biden’s Senate and his vice-presidential periods were found.
While the new documents were seized for detailed examination by the Ministry of Justice officials, it was pointed out that Biden voluntarily gave permission to search his home.
In the statement, it was also shared that President Biden and his wife Jill Biden were not at home for the weekend break during the search.
CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS FROM BIDEN’S OFFICE AND HOME
Richard Sauber, one of Biden’s advisers, said on January 9 that Biden’s personal office at the Penn Biden Center had “few documents containing classified information” from his term as vice president on November 2, 2022.
Stating that the documents were found in a “locked cabinet”, Sauber said that as soon as the documents were found, Biden’s personal lawyers contacted the White House and state institutions related to national archives.
Biden said he was “surprised” when he heard that confidential documents were coming out of his office, and said he had no knowledge of the contents of the documents.
The Ministry of Justice appointed a specially authorized prosecutor to examine the documents in question.
Before Biden, the discovery of classified documents was long discussed in the country when FBI agents searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion in Palm Beach on August 8, 2022. Biden said, “How can someone be so irresponsible?” He criticized Trump.
Republicans are now criticizing Biden, after secret documents surfaced in Biden’s office and home for a while. (AA)
