FBI Rehoboth search: Cover up or violation of 4th Amendment rights?

Feb. 1, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response the FBI’s search of President Joe Biden’s Rehoboth, Del. beach house in connection with its missing classified documents case against Biden, according to CBS News’ Arden Farhi “the search was planned with Biden’s attorneys and consensual. No warrant was sought for this search…”:

“According to CBS News’ sources, President Joe Biden’s beach house in Rehoboth, Del. is being searched in connection to the FBI’s ongoing investigation against Biden of the missing classified documents, but without the use of any warrants and therefore no judicial oversight. In light of the FBI’s treatment of former President Donald Trump who lawfully held documents that he says he declassified in its August raid at Mar-a-lago, it is stunning they are proceeding without a search warrant which under the Fourth Amendment would require the FBI to tell a judge what they were hoping to find, protecting the rights of the accused and preventing a wholesale general warrant.

“Since day one of the discovery of the illegally held Biden classified documents, the FBI has allowed Biden attorneys the privilege to go through boxes without supervision, effectively neutering any real investigation. America watched almost a decade ago, became aware that Hillary Clinton smashed her cell phones and bleachbitted her computers to deny federal officials access to her unsecure email server.

“It should be remembered that the FBI similarly allowed Clinton’s attorneys to go through her emails to determine if there was classified information on her computer, only intervening after much of the evidence was tainted or destroyed. America has seen what the FBI does when they’re serious, with 6 a.m. raids on targets of investigations if they’re in the wrong political party and kid gloves for the Democrats who have apparently become the official party of the government.”
