The Federal Bureau of Investigation in November searched the former office of President Joe Biden. This was reported on January 31 by The Wall Street Journal, citing sources.
According to the publication, a search of the Penn Biden Center think tank, where Biden’s former office was located, was carried out shortly after aides to the American president discovered several secret documents there on November 2. Investigative measures were taken with the consent of representatives of the President of the United States.
At the same time, there is no data on whether law enforcement officers found additional documents during the search, the newspaper notes.
Earlier, on January 21, CNN reported that investigators found six more new classified documents during a search of US President Joe Biden’s private home in Wilmington, Delaware.
On January 19, Joe Biden spoke out about the insignificance of the case of secret documents in his house with a quote from the American modernist writer Gertrude Stein.
“I think you will understand that there is nothing there. There’s not even anything there,” Biden said.
On the same day, it was reported that the public approval rate for US President Joe Biden had dropped to 40%. The fall in the rating is associated with the discovery in the think tank and Biden’s house of secret documents that relate to the period of his vice presidency (2008-2016).
On January 14, Reuters, citing Joe Biden’s lawyer, reported that new secret documents were found in the private house of the US President. During searches, lawyers found five files marked “secret” from the Biden vice presidency (2009-2017).
The day before, CBS News reported, citing a law enforcement source, that at least 10 classified documents were found at the Pennsylvania Center and the residence of President Joe Biden. Moreover, during the searches, they found 10 materials marked “top secret”. It is noted that information leakage from such files is extremely dangerous.
The day before, Fox News host Tucker Carlson predicted the end of President Biden’s career and reputation because of the secret documents found on him. The journalist pointed out that the assistants to the head of state still continue to find documents left by him in various places. But instead of destroying the evidence, they send documents to the US Department of Justice.
On the same day, American political scientist Scott Bennett noted in an interview with Izvestia that secret documents found from the time of Biden’s vice presidency speak of a crime committed by him.
About 10 classified materials were discovered in Biden’s office, which were stored together with papers that did not contain classified data, it became known on January 9. Later, presidential aides discovered another batch of documents.
On Jan. 10, Biden said he was unaware of the presence of classified documents in his largely unsecured office at the Penn Biden Center think tank during his vice presidency. The American leader was surprised by this find.
