FBI searches Joe Biden's Delaware home, more classified documents found

The president and first lady Jill Biden were not at the home when it was searched. 

The FBI searched President Joe Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware and located six additional documents containing classified markings and also took possession of some of his notes, the president's lawyer said.

The documents taken by the FBI on Friday spanned Biden's time in the Senate and the vice presidency, while the notes dated to his time as vice president, said Bob Bauer, the president's personal lawyer, on Saturday.

He added that the search of the entire premises lasted nearly 13 hours. The level of classification, and whether the documents removed by the FBI remained classified, was not immediately clear as the Justice Department reviews the records.

"We found a handful of documents were filed in the wrong place," Biden told reporters Thursday in California. "We immediately turned them over to the Archives and the Justice Department." Biden added that he was "fully cooperating and looking forward to getting this resolved quickly".

The president and first lady Jill Biden were not at the home when it was searched. They were spending the weekend at their home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

It remains to be seen whether additional searches by federal officials of other locations might be conducted. Biden's personal attorneys previously conducted a search of the Rehoboth Beach residence and said they did not find any official documents or classified records.
