The FBI conducted two searches at the University of Delaware in connection with the investigation into classified documents found on President Joe Biden’s property, a source familiar with the case told CNN.
The searches, which were not publicly reported, were made in recent weeks with the consent and cooperation of the president’s legal team, the source said.
The library at the University of Delaware, Biden’s alma mater, has an extensive collection of documents from the period in which he now served in the Senate, according to his website.
The researchers recovered material from two campuses of the university on two different dates. The material did not appear to have any classified markings, according to the source, but they are now under review by the FBI.
Investigators examined two different batches of documents during the searches: an archive of materials from Biden’s time in the US Senate, as well as documents Biden sent to the university in recent years.
Molly Levinson, a spokeswoman for the president’s personal attorney, had no comment and referred questions to the Justice Department. A White House spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.
