The White House refused to say Wednesday whether federal law enforcement officials were searching other locations associated with President Joe Biden as they search for classified material in their criminal investigation into the president.
The news comes after the FBI seized materials from Biden’s beach home in Delaware on Wednesday afternoon while conducting a four-hour search of the residence. Biden’s personal attorney claimed that the materials were not classified.
Ian Sams, senior advisor to the White House Counsel’s Office, was asked by a reporter if the FBI has conducted any searches of any other locations associated with the president that the administration is aware of.
“Look, I think we’re providing information as this goes on and answering questions about the search activities as they’ve been happening,” Sams said. “I don’t want to speak too much to the DOJ’s practices in an ongoing investigation. I can say, you know, that we have cooperated fully, though the president’s personal attorneys have provided information to DOJ.”
Sam tried to portray that the administration was being transparent about searches that have been taking place, however, it never disclosed that the FBI searched Biden’s former office at the Biden Penn Center back in November.
Sams later said that he did not want to “speak too much to the Justice Department’s decision-making and their activities.”
