The FBI scoured the former office used by President Joe Biden at a Washington, D.C. think tank after the discovery of classified documents in November, a revelation that was just reported, leading some to ask why the American people were not informed until now.
Federal agents searched the office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in mid-November according to CBS News which first reported on the latest twist in the scandal that could derail Biden’s reelection hopes, weeks after the president’s lawyers found the classified material in the location on November 2, 2022.
On Tuesday’s edition of “Hannity,” Fox News host Sean Hannity posed the question to viewers of why an administration that pledged to be the most transparent in history didn’t disclose the FBI sweep of the 6th-floor office space to the public.
“Sources have now confirmed that Joe Biden’s personal office at the U. Penn Biden Center was in fact searched by the FBI way back in November,” Hannity began. “Now, the topic of the search, top secret classified documents, and oddly enough, the most transparent administration in history, according to the White House, they never mentioned the incident.”

“Christopher Wray, Merrick Garland, they never bragged that they approved it either. Not Joe Biden, not Karine Jeane-Pierre, not Ron Klain, nobody told us.” he continued. “They also failed to mention that top secret documents were in fact discovered at the U. Penn Biden Center on November 2, November 8 was the midterm election, nearly a week before the midterms.”
“Now they hid this discovery from you, the American people until it was leaked to the press, but that was a whopping 68 days later,” he added. “By the way, in the interim, while all this was going on, they did, in fact, appoint a special counsel to investigate Donald Trump.”
“So as of now, we still have no idea why the classified documents were uncovered in the first place, and the so-proclaimed most transparent White House in history, they won’t tell us a thing, So what are they hiding?” Hannity asked.
According to a CNN report citing an anonymous Justice Department official, a warrant was not used in the search which was carried out with the consent of the president’s legal team.
Biden Communications Director Kate Bedingfield rejected the suggestion that the regime hasn’t been transparent and noted that it was cooperating fully with the Justice Department.
“That’s not something I can comment on from here, that’s something you’ll need to ask the Justice Department,” she told CNN’s Victor Blackwell on Tuesday after the FBI search was brought up.
“What I can say is we’ve been cooperative and transparent from the outset, we’ve put out multiple statements from the president’s personal attorney describing the process and being clear that the president takes this seriously and that he cooperated and will continue to cooperate with the Justice Department in full,” Bedingfield said.
Hannity later asked why there were no Mar-a-Lago-style raids on the places where Biden had classified information squirreled away, referencing the unprecedented FBI storming of former President Donald J. Trump’s South Florida residence last August.
He also wondered why there have been no FBI searches of the 33 pallets of Biden’s records that were transported on two trucks to the University of Delaware where they remain locked away a decade later, and that the taxpayer-funded public school may be home to “a trove of top, secret classified materials.”
