WASHINGTON — Investigators for the Department of Justice seized more than half a dozen additional documents, some of them classified, at President Biden’s residence in Wilmington, Del., on Friday after conducting a 13-hour search of the home, the president’s personal lawyer said Saturday evening.

Six documents with classified markings — including some from his time as a senator and others from his time as vice president — were taken by investigators, along with surrounding materials, according to the statement from Bob Bauer, Mr. Biden’s attorney.

Investigators also took “personally handwritten notes” by Mr. Biden from his time as vice president, Mr. Bauer wrote.

“Yesterday, D.O.J. completed a thorough search of all the materials in the president’s Wilmington home. It began at approximately 9:45 a.m. and concluded at around 10:30 p.m. and covered all working, living and storage spaces in the home,” Mr. Bauer said.

“D.O.J. had full access to the president’s home, including personally handwritten notes, files, papers, binders, memorabilia, to-do lists, schedules, and reminders going back decades,” he added.”

Another statement, from Richard Sauber, a member of the White House Counsel’s Office, said that the search was conducted and finished at the home on Friday, and neither the president or Jill Biden, the first lady, were at the residence at the time.
