The FBI was searching President Joe Biden’s Delaware beach home Wednesday, as part of the ongoing inquiry into the handling of classified documents.

Biden attorney Bob Bauer confirmed the action, saying the Rehoboth Beach search was planned with “the president’s full support and cooperation.”

“Under DOJ’s standard procedures, in the interests of operational security and integrity, it sought to do this work without advance public notice, and we agreed to cooperate. The search today is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate,” Bauer said.

The beach home marks the third location the FBI has searched in connection with discovery of unsecured classified documents related to Biden. In November, agents searched a former Washington, D.C., office used by Biden after leaving the vice presidency, after a first batch of documents was discovered by the president’s lawyers.

Last month, the FBI conducted a day-long search of Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home, recovering a small number of classified items, after lawyers found a second batch of records at the home.
