(DailyVantage.com) – President Joe Biden, who has been under fire in recent weeks for having classified documents from when he was Vice President in his possession, had his Delaware beach home searched on Wednesday.
While classified, and other possibly classified, documents have been discovered in Biden’s Delaware garage (next to his corvette, that is) and in his Washington D.C. think tank, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, no additional documents were found.
The search, which was conducted with Biden’s total cooperation, lasted a staggering three and a half hours.
Bob Baur, Biden’s personal lawyer, said the following after the search was completed: “the planned search of the president’s Rehoboth residences, conducted in coordination and cooperation with the president’s attorneys, has concluded. The search was conducted from 8:30 to noon. No documents with classified markings were found.”
The Biden team, who has been in the news for their careless storage of classified materials, is attempting to contrast themselves with President Trump’s handling of documents by claiming to be cooperative and in support of the Justice Department.
President Trump, who’s Mar-a-Lago residence was raided by FBI agents on August 8th of 2022, refused to cooperate with the National Archives and Records Administration. Biden, conversely, has allowed FBI agents to thoroughly search his properties.
This, however, does not change the fact that Biden has been reckless with classified documents from his days working under President Obama.
Additionally, White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, falsely stated that the search for additional documents had concluded earlier in January. She has since deflected questions from the press pool regarding her deception about the ongoing search for new documents.
For the time being, Biden remains under investigation by a special counsel appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Justice Department.
Robert Hur, who assumed the position of special counsel today, will be spearheading the investigation.
