The FBI conducted a search of the Penn Biden Center offices in mid-November after attorneys found documents with classified markings at the think tank earlier that month according to CBS. The search was conducted without the use of a warrant and it is unknown whether the FBI found additional classified documents. The Penn Biden Center is “a think tank in Washington, D.C., affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania.” Biden was an was an honorary professor from 2017 to 2019 at the university and received about $900,000 for giving lectures and talks. Biden is now under special counsel investigation for his retention of classified records.
According to Breitbart:
The revelation of the search, which neither the White House nor Justice Department (DOJ) have disclosed to the public, compounds existing concerns Biden is facing about transparency with the case.
Biden’s attorneys initially found documents marked classified dating back to Biden’s time as vice president at the Penn Biden Center on November 2 and alerted the National Archives, a bombshell first reported by CBS on January 9.
Republicans have criticized the DOJ for knowing about the classified documents issue before the November 8 midterm election but not reporting it the media or public.
