The FBI's search took place after documents with classified markings from the Obama administration were found in Biden’s Wilmington residence and a Washington think tank office.

Iran PressIran News: The US Justice Department did not find documents with classified markings during a three-and-a-half hour search of President Joe Biden's beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware, on Wednesday (Feb 1) but did take some materials for further review, Biden's attorney said.

The morning search by FBI agents appeared to represent an expansion of the probe into Biden's handling of classified documents.

Bob Bauer, the president’s personal attorney, confirmed on Wednesday morning that the DoJ had sent FBI agents to the property as part of a “planned search”. Bauer said the justice department had sought to do the search “without advance public notice”.  

American law considers it illegal to intentionally and unintentionally remove or keep classified documents, but so far, no president or vice president in the United States has been officially accused of committing this offense either during their term or after. 219
