The Federal Bureau of Investigation may look at other locations tied to President Joe Biden for classified documents, CBS News is reporting.
This comes after the Department of Justice located six documents with classified markings at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, on Friday. RedState reported:
It was just announced that Justice Department personnel searched Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home for 12 hours on Friday, with Biden’s personal attorneys and White House counsel present, and discovered six more classified documents that they have now taken possession of. Some of the documents reportedly go back to Biden’s time in the Senate, at least 14 years ago. Others were from his time as Vice President.
According to CBS News Radio White House Correspondent Steven Portnoy, there are now somewhere between 25 and 30 documents in total that have been found, including from the Penn Biden Center and his garage in Wilmington.

Some of the documents have come from Biden’s time as a senator and vice president.
“DOJ requested that the search not be made public in advance, in accordance with its standard procedures, and we agreed to cooperate,” Biden’s personal attorney Bob Bauer said in a statement on Saturday.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur to serve as special counsel over the situation of the classified documents. Hur worked in the Trump administration from 2018 to 2021 as a U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland.
