During a 13 hour search of President Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home, FBI investigators uncovered six more classified documents. Reports state some of the documents went back as long ago as when he served in the Senate, nearly 15 years ago.
The search was authorized by the White House and Bob Bauer, Biden’s personal lawyer, said in a statement.
“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.”
According to CNN, sources familiar with the matter said the search was conducted without a warrant or subpoena, just the offering of Biden’s legal team to allow the Department of Justice the opportunity to survey the home for additional documents.
The third discovery of additional documents comes after Biden’s personal attorneys found the first batch on November 2, 2022 at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC, and then more were found in Biden’s Delaware home. Some were recovered in a storage space in his garage.
Last week after the Delaware home was searched, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified documents.
“The extraordinary circumstances here require the appointment of a special counsel for this matter,” Garland said in announcing Robert Hur to lead the investigation.
Hur is conducting an inquiry into the “possible unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or other records discovered at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement and the Wilmington, Delaware, private residence of President Joseph R. Biden Jr,” Garland added.

Controversial Remarks by Progressive Lawmaker Sparks Intra-Party Clash over Hamas’ Alleged Sexual Violence
In a recent television appearance, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal stirred controversy and faced intense criticism from fellow Democrats for her remarks seemingly downplaying reported sexual violence by Hamas terrorists against Israeli women.
The contentious comments come amid disturbing accounts of rape and brutal assaults following Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel on October 7, with prominent Democrats expressing outrage and demanding unequivocal condemnation.
According to reports from Fox News, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz from Florida called for a forceful denouncement of sexual violence and condemning any attempt to create moral equivalence between Hamas and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). The accusations of rape and sexual assault have sparked concern about the well-being of Israelis still held hostage by Hamas.
During her appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Jayapal faced scrutiny for not outright condemning Hamas for the alleged acts, instead emphasizing the broader impact of war on women.
Furthermore, the comments drew swift criticism, with Representative Ritchie Torres of New York insisting on the need for unequivocal condemnation of sexual violence against Israeli women.
Despite Jayapal’s history of advocating against sexual violence, her recent remarks have led to a significant intra-party clash, with Democrats challenging the notion of finding a balance or moral equivalence in addressing such sensitive matters.
The controversy underscores the complexities that arise when lawmakers navigate geopolitical conflicts while upholding principles of justice and human rights. As tensions escalate within the party, the incident highlights the broader challenges of maintaining a unified front on contentious global issues.
