A source familiar with the investigation told CNN that the FBI conducted two searches at the University of Delaware in conjunction with the inquiry into President Joe Biden’s handling of confidential documents.
The insider claimed that the previously unannounced searches took place recently with the permission and assistance of the president’s legal team.
According to the university’s website, Biden’s alma mater, the University of Delaware, has a sizable collection of documents from the president’s time serving in the Senate.

On two separate days, investigators retrieved materials from two university locations. According to the source, the documents weren’t marked as classified, but the FBI is currently reviewing them.
During the searches, they looked at two different sets of papers: an archive of materials from Biden’s time in the US Senate and papers that Biden had recently sent to the institution.
The president’s personal attorney’s spokesperson, Molly Levinson, declined to comment and sent questions to the Justice Department. A White House official also pointed inquiries towards the Justice Department.
Justice Department officials opted not to comment. An inquiry for comments was not answered by the University of Delaware. Since the collection arrived at the university in 2012, the more than 1,850 boxes of records have not been accessible to the general public, according to the website.
The most recent action taken by investigators to look for any newly undiscovered classified documents is the search at the University of Delaware. Biden’s two houses in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as well as the Penn Biden Center’s office in Washington, D.C., have all been searched by FBI investigators.
According to CNN, the FBI confiscated some of Biden’s Senate-era records after discovering secret information there as well as at the Penn Biden Center office and in his Wilmington home.
