The Justice Department conducted a search of President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home Friday and found even more documents with classified markings, according to Biden’s personal attorney on Saturday.
Six documents were included in the most recent trove. It is not known what the contents of classified material are.
The White House previously stated that on January 14, all classified documents were searched.
The trove is in addition to the about 25 classified documents unearthed by Biden’s personal attorneys in past weeks between the Penn Biden Center and Biden’s residence.
Critics have questioned why Biden’s personal attorneys were initially searching for Biden’s illegally stashed documents. However, the White House failed to explain the original reason for the search.
🚨🚨Biden’s White House claimed all classified documents were turned over.

Biden’s personal attorney, Bob Bauer, Saturday’s claim was that Biden agreed to permit the Justice Department search.
The hunt began “at approximately 9:45 AM and concluded at around 10:30 PM and covered all working, living and storage spaces in the home,”Bauer stated in a statement that he was not satisfied with the results. “representatives of both the personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s Office were present”For the search.
The White House Counsel’s Office, which is a distinction from Biden’s personal attorneys, issued a statement that “[n]either the President nor the First Lady were present during the search. The President’s lawyers and White House Counsel’s Office will continue to cooperate with DOJ and the Special Counsel.”
The investigation of wrongdoing was reportedly widened after the DOJ and Biden’s personal attorneys agreed to hide the scandal from the American people.
The following is an extract from the Washington Post, not only did the White House and DOJ try to obscure the scandal from public view, but they also refused to divulge that the second trove of classified documents were already unearthed at Biden’s home in Wilmington when CBS News first contacted the White House about the initial leak of classified documents apparently illegally stored at the Biden Penn Center.
White House officials are reportedly suspicious about how Biden’s classified document scandal was leaked to the press after only a select group of White House and Justice Department officials knew about the violation.
