The FBI found more classified materials in President Biden’s home during a search on Friday.

The classified records were seized by the Department of Justice.

“On January 20, 2023, the FBI executed a planned, consensual search of the President’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware,” according to Joseph D. Fitzpatrick, an assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, who is serving as the spokesperson for the special counsel investigating President Biden.

Bob Bauer, the president’s personal attorney, said investigators took more than six items with classified markings during the search, which lasted 13 hours. The documents’ origins range from Biden’s time as a senator to his time as vice president.

Bauer said the president’s legal counsel offered to provide access for a search “in the interest of moving the process forward as expeditiously as possible.”

“At the outset of this matter, the President directed his personal attorneys to fully cooperate with the Department of Justice,” Bauer said.

“[The] DOJ had full access to the President’s home, including personally handwritten notes, files, papers, binders, memorabilia, to-do lists, schedules, and reminders going back decades,” he continued, adding that the DOJ “requested that the search not be made public in advance, in accordance with its standard procedures, and we agreed to cooperate.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre previously said the search of Biden’s home was “complete.”

On January 12, she said during a press conference that the matter is “in the hands of the special counsel” and told reporters they “should assume it had been completed.”

“The search is complete,” she confirmed later in the conference.

The search was overseen by Trump appointee U.S. Attorney John Lausch, who conducted the DOJ’s initial investigation into President Biden.

On January 12, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur as special counsel to continue the investigation, but he is still in the process of transitioning into the role.

“We expect Special Counsel Hur to be on board shortly,” a spokesperson for the DOJ told CNN.

The president is “fully cooperating” with the DOJ’s investigation, according to White House counsel’s office spokesman Ian Sams. However, a former FBI assistant director, Chris Swecker, claims that Biden is being treated with “kid gloves,” as previously covered in The Dallas Express.

Biden recently said he has “no regrets” about how he has handled the discovery of the classified documents.

Unlike Trump who claimed for over a year and a half that he had no classified papers , went out of his way to hide them. Needed a search warrant and still fought it in court. Biden when docs were found had his staff contact the archives and the DOJ. Has totally co-operated with the DOJ.

Also unlike Trump… He never had legal clearance to have the papers in his personal possession ever. .in or out of office! And what this got to do with Trump? This is Bidin’s own separate crime… But I know nothing to see here!
