(TheRedAlertNews.com) – An FBI search of a third personal venue of President Joe Biden – his beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware – has not discovered any classified documents, Biden’s personal lawyer has announced.
Had more documents been turned up, Biden would almost certainly face prosecution, according to one legal expert. The same expert opined that “Biden dodged a bullet yesterday.”
The search of the Rehoboth house came after some two dozen classified US government papers from when Biden served as vice president and US senator were found in his former office in Washington, DC, and his family home in Wilmington, Delaware.
The president’s lawyer Bob Bauer announced that agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation spent three-and-a-half hours on Wednesday going through Biden’s beach house.
He added that the agents found handwritten notes and other materials from Biden’s vice presidential tenure between 2009 and 2017.
“No documents with classified markings were found,” Bauer said, as cited by Newsmax.
“Consistent with the process in Wilmington, the DOJ took for further review some materials and handwritten notes that appear to relate to his time as vice president,” he added.
Wednesday’s FBI search was the third time since November that a property owned or used by Biden was searched to locate any classified documents that he may have mishandled.
“Today, with the President’s full support and cooperation, the DOJ is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware,” the president’s lawyer said in a statement while the search was still in progress.
“The search today is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate,” he added.
The first classified papers that Biden may have mishandled were found by aides on November 2 in his think tank in the nation’s capital, the Penn Biden Center.
However, that discovery was not made public until early January, causing Republicans to declare that it had been covered up to avoid hurting the Democrats’ results in the November 8 midterms.
According to reports, the FBI also searched the Penn Biden Center in November after the original discovery.
In January, a subsequent search of Biden’s Wilmington home carried out by his personal lawyers led to the finding of more classified records. Those were discovered in his home office and his garage.
On January 20, the FBI agents spent 13 hours sifting through the Democrat president’s family home. They found six more classified records and also seized some handwritten notes.
It is noted that Biden has been voluntarily allowing the Department of Justice to search his properties.
His Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to lead the investigation into how the classified papers from the time before he became president ended up in his home and office.
