Federal agents search Biden’s papers at his alma mater

The FBI has conducted two searches within the last month at the University of Delaware to check if United States President Joe Biden donated papers that could have been classified, writes Max Matza for BBC News. Donald Trump faces a criminal inquiry over his handling of classified files.

Investigators retrieved multiple boxes from the college on two different days, according to CBS, the BBC’s US partner. The university, Biden’s alma mater, houses thousands of boxes of files related to his time in the Senate.

Documents marked classified have been found in recent months at Biden’s home in Delaware and offices that he used in Washington DC. The FBI recovered some of the files during a search of his private residence at Wilmington last month. Sources familiar with the investigation told CBS that the searches at the University of Delaware were carried out at the end of January and beginning of February. The material recovered did not appear to have classified markings, but the FBI is now reviewing the files, reports CBS.
