CBS News reported that FBI officials searched a Rehoboth, Delaware beach home owned by President Biden today in relation to the classified documents scandal.
This comes as reports have surfaced that FBI officials searched the Penn Biden Center back in November, though nobody from the Biden Administration or FBI made that known to the public.

FBI Officials reportedly conducted this search with the cooperation of the Biden team, and no warrant was sought for the search.
This follows a pattern covered by this outlet, where FBI officials have been extremely lax when it comes to searching Biden. The FBI even allowed for Biden attorneys to search for classified documents unsupervised.
This treatments marks a stark contrast to tactics used against Former President Trump. Trump was raided late last year in Florida. The FBI did seek and obtain a search warrant in that case.
In an official statement released by Biden attorney Bob Bauer, he states that Biden will cooperate and help facilitate any investigating the DOJ wishes to conduct.
“Today, with the President’s full support and cooperation, the DOJ is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware. Under DOJ’s standard procedures, in the interests of operational security and integrity, it sought to do this work without advance public notice, and we agreed to cooperate. The search today is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate. We will have further information at the conclusion of today’s search.”Bob Bauer, Biden Attorney

Reports have also surfaced that today is the first day that Special Counsel Robert Hur is on the job. Hur was appointed earlier this year to oversee the Biden investigation.

DOJ has now published a website for Hur’s office, a common step in Special Counsel investigations. (Smith + Durham also have websites.) https://t.co/REdz83GWys https://t.co/4brMsxk5b6
As this scandal continues to unfold, it seems that impeachment is inevitably looming over Biden. With a Republican House, it seems that it is only a matter of time.
