Biden files: Feds weigh whether to search more locations after finding classified records

US prosecutors are now considering possible searches at other locations linked to President Joe Biden after the Department of Justice (DOJ) found more classified files in his possession, it was reported late Saturday.

Federal officials are considering searching additional areas after six more items were found in Biden’s Wilmington home CBS News.

The news came while he was at his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach.

Meanwhile, Republicans are attacking the President amid the growing scandal.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer said his investigation into the Biden family is moving to the “next phase,” which will reportedly involve both the president’s classified documents and finances — along with those of his son Hunter Biden .

“We look at the bank statements. We’ll look into bank violations,” Comer told the Washington Examiner.

“That’s the next phase of our investigation because we’re trying to find out who these anonymous sources are that are sending so much money to the Biden family’s schemes – the Biden Center for Diplomacy and the Hunter Biden artwork.”

Investigating the Biden family and its finances has been a top priority for Como and House Republicans since winning the chamber majority late last year.

But the president is also under investigation for his handling of classified records by a special counsel appointed by his own attorney general, Merrick Garland.

The latest discovery reportedly brings the total number of classified files found to 25-30.

It’s not immediately clear how many of the six documents revealed Saturday were top secret.

But the documents found Saturday range from Biden’s three-decade tenure in the Senate to his time as Barack Obama’s vice president.

The DOJ searched Biden’s Delaware residence for more than 12 hours, according to a statement from the president’s personal attorney revealing the new documents.

“The DOJ requested that the search not be released in advance, in accordance with its standard procedures, and we agreed to cooperate,” the statement said.

Attorney Bob Bauer claimed that law enforcement officers had “full access” to the Wilmington-area home where classified documents were also found earlier this month.

The DOJ took possession of materials it deemed part of its investigation, including six items consisting of documents with classification marks and surrounding materials, some from the President’s Senate service and others from his tenure as Vice President,” the statement read Explanation.

“The DOJ also personally took handwritten notes from the vice president’s years for further review.”

Donald Trump, the former president and Biden’s political archrival, used the debacle to once again protest his own innocence.

“They created this document mess for themselves by being so obsessed with me and I did NOTHING WRONG!!!” Trump wrote on his social media app Truth Social.

Trump is also under investigation for his handling of classified records, about which he reportedly lied to investigators, leading to an FBI raid on his home last summer to recover the top-secret files.

Biden, on the other hand, said he is taking the investigation “seriously” and is working with officials at the Justice Department and the National Archives at every step.

But Republican critics of the Democratic president have questioned that after Saturday’s discovery.

‘AGAIN?!? How the HELL do they keep screwing this up? As Biden keeps saying, “Everyone knows how seriously I take classified documents.” Yes. Yes we do,” Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz wrote on Twitter.

Republican Representative Scott Perry, a member of the House Oversight Committee, echoed Biden’s own words: “Everyone knows how seriously I take classified documents.”

“I think the key words here were, ‘I take,'” Perry wrote.
