(FeaturedNews.com) – According to a statement released by Joseph D. Fitzpatrick, an assistant U.S. attorney to John Lausch, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, the FBI carried out a consensual search of President Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home which led to additional classified records being found.
Lausch, who was the Department of Justice official heading the investigation into Biden’s classified documents prior to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Hur, continues to be an integral part of the investigation.
According to reports, the FBI search took place between Friday at 9:45 a.m. and Friday night at around 10:30 p.m. During the search, Bob Bauer, Biden’s personal attorney, had been present in the house. The search included all areas in the house.
Bauer noted that from the start, Biden had informed Bauer to fully cooperate with everything that the Department of Justice requested. He added that the search was the result of the two different batches of classified documents that had been found in the President’s home dating back to the Obama administration. He added that in order for the entire process to move as quickly as possible, the President willingly allowed the Department of Justice to proceed with a search of his entire home for any remaining classified material.
Bauer also noted that following their agreement with the Justice Department, a representative from Biden’s legal team and the White House Counsel’s Office was there during the search. He added that the DOJ was allowed access to everything, from personal documents to memorabilia to reminders and to-do lists. He continued by saying that the DOJ took from the search everything that they believed would be valuable in their investigation. There were also six documents with classified documents found on the premises. Some of them dated back to the Obama administration while some dated back to his time as a Senator.
