The FBI is searching President Joe Biden’s beach house outside Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on Wednesday morning.
“Today, with the President’s full support and cooperation, the DOJ is conducting a planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware,” Biden’s personal attorney Bob Bauer wrote in a statement.
“Under DOJ’s standard procedures, in the interests of operational security and integrity, it sought to do this work without advance public notice, and we agreed to cooperate,” Bauer said. “The search today is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate. We will have further information at the conclusion of today’s search.”

The FBI search in Rehoboth marks the third known occasion that federal agents have searched properties associated with Biden to look for classified material.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed a special counsel to take over the investigation into President Joe Biden’s potential mishandling of classified documents.
The initial set of classified documents found at an office President Joe Biden formerly used at a D.C. think tank included briefings about Iran, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, according to CNN, as the Justice Department conducts a review to determine whether there was any criminal wrongdoing.
The records were dated between 2013 and 2016, corresponding to the time Biden served as vice president, CNN reported, citing a source with knowledge of the documents.
The discovery of the records has drawn comparisons with documents found last year at President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate.

Biden’s legal team had discovered a second set of classified documents from his time as vice president at a storage space in the garage of his home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House confirmed on Thursday.
According to Reuters, a single document was also found in a room adjacent to the garage in Wilmington, and no documents were found in the Bidens’ Rehoboth Beach home, Richard Sauber said in a statement.
The administration is “fully cooperating” to ensure that the records are handled properly, Sauber said.
The statement by Sauber, a special counsel to Biden, came after the initial discovery of classified documents in an office used by Biden after his vice presidency.
