Federal investigators found six more classified documents over the weekend while searching President Joe Biden’s Delaware beach home, according to sources familiar with the ongoing situation.
According to the New York Post, the latest search of Biden’s Delaware home lasted 13 hours.
The news broke late Saturday night with multiple news outlets reporting that six more classified documents were found at Biden’s home, with some dating back to his days in the United States Senate.
Previously, documents found have come from Biden’s time as vice president.
Biden’s lawyers were present during the search according to reports, but the President and First Lady were not at the home at the time, and the Department of Justice has taken custody of the newly-discovered documents.
The new set of documents is discovered almost a week after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Special Counsel Robert Hur to investigate the other documents found in November and January.
The Department of Justice decided to hide the original findings of the first set of documents found in early November, waiting till only recently to announce the revelations to the public.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been deflecting reporters’ questions regarding the fiasco over the past week, and both Jean-Pierre and Biden have become visibly agitated when asked questions on the topic.
Republicans have been quick to pounce on the issue, promising to add this debacle to a list of future investigations promised in the run-up to the midterm elections, and have been quick to label Democrats and the FBI hypocrites for the way both have reacted to the found documents.
