The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday after a 13-hour search at President Joe Biden’s home in Delaware, found six more classified documents.
This was disclosed by President Biden’s personal attorney, Bob Bauer, on Saturday evening.
The DOJ investigators conducted a search of the house beginning Friday morning at 9:45 a.m., which concluded Friday night around 10:30 p.m. and covered “all working, living and storage spaces in the home,” Bauer said.
“By agreement with DOJ, representatives of both the personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s Office were present.
“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,” Bauer added.
“DOJ took possession of materials it deemed within the scope of its inquiry, including six items consisting of documents with classification markings and surrounding materials, some of which were from the President’s service in the Senate and some of which were from his tenure as Vice President.

“DOJ also took for further review personally handwritten notes from the vice-presidential years.”
Bauer further stated that the president’s team has “attempted to balance the importance of public transparency where appropriate with the established norms and limitations necessary to protect the investigation’s integrity.
“We will continue to do so throughout the course of our cooperation with DOJ,” Bauer said.
