DOJ allows Biden’s personal attorneys to search classified documents without FBI
President Joe Biden’s Justice Department has authorized the president’s personal lawyers to search classified documents in separate locations without security clearance or FBI involvement.
Critics have questioned why Biden’s personal lawyers sought classified documents in the first place. Others questioned why the president’s legal team continued to search his home for classified documents after a special counsel was appointed Thursday.
Appropriate The Wall Street Journal, the original DOJ-authorized search involved persons without security clearances to search for potentially classified material. “Sir. Biden’s legal team is preparing to search for similar documents at his other properties and has discussed with the Department of Justice the possibility of FBI agents being involved while Mr. Biden’s attorneys conduct additional investigations,” the statement said.
“In exchange, both parties agreed that Mr. Biden’s personal attorneys would search the homes and notify the Department of Justice as soon as they discovered other potentially classified documents and arrange for them to be received by law enforcement agencies,” the statement said.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) believes that if CBS News had not first reported the scandal, no one would have known about the documents found at the Biden Penn Center or at Biden’s home. After the scandal broke, the White House called for full transparency.
