The FBI today conducted a planned search of President Joe Biden’s Rehoboth Beach Delaware home. The search was conducted as a part of its investigation into the potential mishandling of classified documents.
The president voluntarily allowed the Justice Department into his residence as Vice President and a senator wound up his home and office. Since the search was consensual, FBI did not issue any search warrant nor did it issue an official statement.

FBI’s latest move could reveal how forthcoming and thorough the Biden team is in reviewing documents stored on President’s personal property. Biden’s lawyers claimed that there were no documents found at president’s beach home. However, if FBI recovers such material, it may add fuel to the assertions by Biden’s critics that there is more to the story than his team is letting on.
The search is conducted as a part of a series of searches carried out in various locations after classified documents were found at the Penn Biden Center, the office space in Washington DC. Earlier in December and January, more documents were discovered at another of Mr. Biden’s homes in Wilmington, Delaware. The precise number of classified records recovered still remains unclear.
