Here is a timeline of key dates in the Biden documents investigation:

November 2022: Classified documents turn up at Biden’s former DC office

  • Nov. 2: The president’s lawyers discover a small number of classified documents, about 10, at a D.C. office formerly used by Biden after he left the vice presidency.
  • Nov. 4: The National Archives inspector-general contacts a prosecutor at the Justice Department to say documents bearing classification markings were found at the Biden office.
  • Nov. 9: The FBI begins an assessment to understand whether the information was mishandled.
  • Nov. 14: Attorney General Merrick Garland assigns Chicago U.S. Attorney John Lausch Jr. to conduct an initial investigation.
  • Mid-November: FBI conducts a search of the former Biden office. It’s not immediately clear whether additional records were recovered. The search was consensual and did not require a warrant.
