On Thursday night, first lady Jill Biden could be seen guiding President Joe Biden away from reporters while the two were moving through the White House following the Lunar New Year celebration. The video was posted by CSPAN and it shows the President walking alone following the reception in the East Room. When the President appears, a reporter shouts out whether the FBI would be allowed to also search Biden’s Reheboth Beach home.
Following the question, Biden just turns and looks blankly at the reporter, while the first lady jumps in and guides him away while ushering for the reporter to leave.
A different reporter present asked whether the President and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., would meet in the following weeks, but the President did not provide an answer to that question.
Last week, the FBI had been allowed to search through Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home in order to determine whether there were any additional classified documents in the locations. Following the search, they seized a small number of classified documents, some of which dated back to Biden’s time as the vice President in the Obama administration, while others dated back to his time as Senator. So far, there have not been any indications that classified documents also exist in Biden’s Reheboth Beach residence.
During the Lunar Year reception, the Biden’s enjoyed a traditional Chinese lion dance performance in the East room.
