FBI found no classified documents in search of Biden home in Rehoboth, lawyer says

  • February 03, 2023

FBI agents on Wednesday morning searched the Rehoboth, Delaware, beach home of President Joe Biden for more than three hours, but found no documents marked classified, his personal lawyer said.

Agents “took for further review some materials and handwritten notes that appear to relate to his time as Vice President,” Biden’s lawyer Bob Bauer said.

A senior law enforcement source who spoke with NBC News corroborated Bauer’s characterization of the outcome of the FBI’s search.

The planned, consensual search is the first publicly known time the FBI searched the Rehoboth residence. Agents did not obtain a warrant for the search, which began at 8:30 a.m. ET and ended at noon. They had not gotten warrants for two prior FBI searches of other locations linked to Biden.

The Department of Justice is investigating the discovery of classified documents at a private office in a Washington, D.C., think tank that Biden had used while a private citizen, and at his residence in Wilmington, Delaware.

Biden’s personal lawyer, Bob Bauer, previously said that the president’s lawyers searched the Rehoboth home and the Wilmington residence on Jan. 11.

Those attorneys found classified records in Wilmington, but not in Rehoboth, according to Bauer.

The FBI searched the think tank office in mid-November after Biden’s personal lawyers first found classified records there on Nov. 2. The FBI searched Biden’s Wilmington home on Jan. 20.

White House spokesman Ian Sams on Wednesday would not say how many classified documents in total have been found at the Biden-linked locations.

In an earlier statement Wednesday, Bauer said, “Today, with the President’s full support and cooperation, the DOJ is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware.”
