The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a search of the Delaware home of President Joe Biden over the weekend. The search yielded the discovery of additional classified material.
This marks the fourth time that classified documents have been discovered in Biden’s possession. The first occurrence was back on November 4th, 2022, just days before the midterm election. Last week Biden’s attorneys were allowed to conduct searches of their own without an FBI agent present.
Even after the Biden attorneys had their opportunity to search for classified documents, an FBI search has yielded the discovery of additional classified documents.
NPR is reporting that some of the latest classified materials date back to when Joe Biden served as Senator. Biden served as a Senator from Delaware from January 3, 1973 – January 15, 2009.
