Classified doc. probe: FBI search Biden's Rehoboth beach house
US President Joe Biden's lawyer announces that the president has cooperated with law enforcement, allowing the search of his beach house without complications.
US President Joe Biden's lawyer, Bob Bauer, announced that the US law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), searched, on Wednesday, the president's beach house in Delaware as part of what has been considered the latest stage of an operation seeking to uncover improperly stored classified documents.
Bauer stressed that the Rehoboth beach house search was conducted "with the president’s full support and cooperation," much like those that resulted in the finding of the wrongfully stored classified document's in Biden's Wilmington home and former office space in Washington, DC.
Moreover, in his statement, Biden's attorney said that the US Justice Department launched the latest search 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. We will have further information at the conclusion of today’s search," Bauer said.
The investigation into the Biden classified files scandal has become an opportunity for Republicans to question the Biden administration's transparency.
Biden health examination delay becomes cause of concern
If he secured a second term, Biden would be 82 during his second inauguration. However, pressure mounts as his physical health have become yet another cause of concern and criticism for several of his opponents.
Currently, the White House is being pressed to reveal the findings of the President's health examination, given his age and most recent gaffes and missteps.
US Republicans have used Biden's age and health as an opportunity to further criticize the President on a more personal level where, for example, former family medicine practitioner and current Republican representative Scott DesJarlais said Biden's missteps are "certainly" a cause of concern.
"I think it would be important to see a very thorough and comprehensive cognitive function study that is released with transparency to the public," DesJarlais told the Washington Examiner, adding that "the American people want to know that their commander in chief is fully capable of performing at the highest level to protect the safety and security of our nation.”
Moreover, Republicans have bridged concerns of transparency pertaining to delays in revealing Biden's health examination results to those related to the classified documents found in his Washington, DC, think tank late in 2022.
A senior Republican noted, "Seriously, where is Biden? No press interviews, the White House press secretary has no credibility left, and the administration dodges, deflects, and delays on matters that deserve full transparency," emphasizing that "the American people deserve better than the dishonesty and evasiveness of Biden."
