The revelation comes amid a special counsel investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents. The 13-hour search took place after Biden’s legal team gave the Justice Department access to the president’s home upon finding an initial batch of classified documents there earlier this month. Bauer said the Justice Department was given “full access” to the home including personally handwritten notes, files, papers, binders, memorabilia, to-do lists, schedules and reminders that go back “decades.”

Protest of environmental activist Tortuguita’s death turns violent in Atlanta
A protest turned violent in downtown Atlanta on Saturday night after the death of an environmental activist who was killed by police this week. Activists threw rocks and lit fireworks in front of a skyscraper that houses the Atlanta Police Foundation, shattering large glass windows. They then lit a police cruiser on fire. The violent protesters were a subsection of hundreds of demonstrators who had gathered and marched up Atlanta’s famed Peachtree Street to mourn the death of the protester, a nonbinary person who went by the name Tortuguita and used they/it pronouns. Tortuguita, 26, was killed Wednesday as authorities cleared a small group of protesters from the site of a planned Atlanta-area police training center that activists have dubbed “Cop City.”
