White House lawyers said Thursday that, after searching President Biden’s homes in Delaware for documents from his time as vice president, they discovered a “small number” of additional material marked classified.

The search was done of Biden’s homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach after documents were found Nov. 2 at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, according to a statement from Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president.

“As we stated previously, we are fully cooperating with the National Archives and the Department of Justice in a process to ensure that any Obama-Biden Administration records are appropriately in possession of the Archives,” Sauber said.

Sauber said that the two Delaware residences were the other locations – in addition to the Penn Biden Center – that documents would have been shipped after Biden left the vice presidency. He said that the lawyers completed the search last night, and discovered most of the documents in the garage of Biden’s residence in Wilmington. One document, he said, was a single page and found in an adjacent room. No documents were found in the Rehoboth Beach home, he said.

“As was done in the case of the Penn-Biden Center, the Department of Justice was immediately notified, and the lawyers arranged for the Department of Justice to take possession of these documents,” he added. “The White House will continue to cooperate with the review by the Department of Justice.”
