FBI agents are conducting a “planned search” of President Joe Biden’s Rehoboth, Delaware, home for classified documents, the president’s lawyer Bob Bauer said Wednesday.
“Today, with the President’s full support and cooperation, the DOJ is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware,” Bauer said in a statement.
Bauer said Biden agreed to follow the Justice Department’s standard policy to not provide “advance public notice” for the search.
“The search today is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate,” Bauer said, adding that further updates will be provided once the agents conclude their work at the property.
The White House previously said it had found no classified records at Biden’s Rehoboth home, according to NBC News.
Classified files have been found in Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home and a former office in Washington.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed Robert Hur as special counsel to investigate Biden’s handling of the files.
