Why did it take two months for the FBI search of the Biden center to come out? Meanwhile, media coverage of Mar-a-Lago exploded just hours after the FBI raid for classified material.

The FBI searched the Penn Biden Center just days after Joe Biden’s lawyers discovered classified documents there on Nov. 2, according to reports.

It’s unclear if the FBI discovered any additional classified material there at the time. A warrant wasn’t issued as Biden reps cooperated with the bureau.

The search wasn’t reported by the White House, the Department of Justice, or Biden’s attorneys. It was disclosed by sources close to the investigation over two months later.

From CBS News:

Two sources told CBS News the search was conducted with the cooperation of Mr. Biden’s representatives. A search warrant was not sought.

Mr. Biden used the 6th-floor office space near the Capitol periodically between 2017 and 2019. The Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement opened its doors in 2018.  

The FBI search of the think tank was not previously disclosed by the White House, Mr. Biden’s personal attorneys, or the Department of Justice. A Jan. 14 statement from the president’s personal attorney Bob Bauer referred to the government conducting “its inquiry, including taking possession of any documents and reviewing any surrounding material for further review and context.”

It’s safe to say the White House and the FBI had no intention of disclosing this bombshell development to the public, especially on the heels of the 2022 midterm elections.

This also exposes the White House’s effort to keep this story secret, since reporters repeatedly asked press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for more details about the circumstances of the discovery of classified documents at the Penn Biden Center.

In fact, the White House waited until Jan. 9 to admit to the public that classified documents were even discovered, a reason that was never explained to reporters.

Additionally, Attorney General Merrick Garland omitted the fact the FBI searched the Penn Biden Center when he announced on Jan. 12 the appointment of special counsel Robert Hur to look into the classified documents matter.

Compare the way this story leaked out with how the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago was covered in August.

The entire world was talking about the Mar-a-Lago raid just hours after it happened following Donald Trump announcing that the raid took place. DOJ and FBI insiders also quickly leaked key details of the matter to the press.

But the fact the FBI quietly searched the Biden Penn Center over the very same situation didn’t even emerge until over two months later.

But classified documents weren’t only found at the Penn Biden Center.

Thousands of classified documents were also reportedly found at Biden’s private residence in Delaware last week after a 13-hour search.
