President Joe Biden did not escape the search at his house by the FBI. Strange documents have been found at his home on 20th January. The FBI had conducted a search at his house in Wilmington, Delaware. His lawyer has informed that some documents have been seized by the FBI after this search and some of the personal notes were taken by them as well. The set of documents which have been taken till now contains additional ones which have been marked as classified. It is indeed strange that the highest law enforcement body of the United States of America is searching the house of the President, who holds the chief power in the nation.
The documents which have been taken by the FBI have looked through the time Joe Biden has spent in his time in the Senate. The notes which have been collected are from his time as the Vice President. Bob Bauer is the personal lawyer of the President and he has stressed the point that this is just a routine check. However, American citizens have started to question how a routine search can last for 13 hours inside the premises.
However, the level of classification has not been mentioned to the public yet. The notes are not yet revealed by the lawyer or FBI. These documents are not yet declared as clear by the Justice Department. The reviews of the Justice Department will determine the fate of the documents and their owner, President Biden.
The Most Extraordinary Search By The FBI
This strange search was carried out after a week when Mr Biden’s attorneys had found some documents tagged as classified from the personal library of the President. The attorneys have stated that they have found some documents in places where they should not be. This has led to suspicions. It has also been determined that the document discoveries are not a concern for President Biden himself who has completely cooperated with the overall search. He has been trying to portray an image which is more humble and conducive for the public in comparison to his predecessor, Donald Trump. The documents which have been found till now are handed over to the Archives and Justice Department. Now, it will be up to them to decide the fate of these documents and President Biden.
It has been informed by the lawyers that President Biden along with his wife, First Lady Jill Biden were not at home when the search was being conducted. They were spending the weekend at their home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Even when they had heard the information that their place might be searched, they did not mention any objection. They had cooperated completely with the search and had assured that they will be back from their vacation if the FBI demands it immediately. The search went on for 13 hours but they were not called back to Wilmington.
Probable Searches Will Be Conducted In Future
It remains to be seen whether the other residential areas which are inhabited by President Biden often will be searched by the FBI. There are some information pieces which have indicated that attorneys have already searched the Rehoboth Beach Residence. They did not find any classified documents or records in that particular residence.
Whether the search will be limited to this place or will be extended to other places will be seen eventually. The recent and most extraordinary search had been quite fruitful as we know now! These searches may be taken back to Donald Trump as well. He had taken numerous documents to his house after he had completed the term as president and this had led to several issues.
Similar Issues In The Past By Donald Trump
On leaving the White House in 2021, Donald Trump refused to hand over these documents, claiming that these documents are among his personal notes. It is probable that the FBI and attorneys are taking precautions from the very beginning in order to avoid such embarrassing conditions later.
The FBI had to gather the right search warrant in order to go through the house of Donald Trump to recover these documents in their proper form. That was quite harmful to the overall proceedings of the government.
The State of Bob Bauer
Bob Bauer has been asked by the FBI not to comment on the search before it was conducted completely. He had complete access to the documents which were kept at the house of the President of the United States of America. He is known to have access to the handwritten notes of the President, this included the files, papers, binders, memorabilia, schedules and even the details which are going back in decades.
These issues are also looked into by the FBI and it is expected that the issue will be resolved in a matter of a few days. The Justice Department has already taken possession of the materials which have been found and the verdict will be coming soon. The six documents which have been mentioned as classified from the Senate are taken as well.
It is possible that the investigation will pull the trails of the mistakes which have been done by Donald Trump in terms of document arrangement till now. The public domain of these documents was infringed immediately when the documents were carried to the home of the president. We have to wait and see how the matter unfurls within the given time.
It has been mentioned repeatedly by the attorneys that the document removal by the President of the present term had not been intentional. It is probable that he did not know that this kind of removal can lead to serious consequences. President Biden himself was quite surprised when he came to know that he was implicated in this case. Only time will prove whether he will be absolved from this “mistake” or whether this will be considered a crime by the Justice Department.
