Federal officials removed nine boxes of documents from the Boston office of President Joe Biden's attorney, Patrick Moore, the National Archives and Records Administration revealed.

Responding to an inquiry from GOP Sens. Ron Johnson, Wis., and Chuck Grassley, Iowa, acting Archivist Steidel Wall revealed the seizure in a March 7 letter.

"When NARA contacted President Biden's personal counsel on November 3, 2022, to arrange to pick up boxes from the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., they informed NARA that Mr. Moore had moved other boxes from the Penn Biden Center to Mr. Moore's law firm in Boston," Wall wrote. "NARA staff retrieved nine boxes from Mr. Moore's Boston office."

They were then moved to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, the nearest NARA facility to Moore's office. The Archives secured the documents in late November, but have yet to review them for classified materials.

"NARA has not reviewed the contents of the boxes found at Mr. Moore's Boston office," Wall revealed.

President Joe Biden appeared to have egg on his face earlier this year when reports emerged that a lawyer cleaning out the then-former vice president's office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington had discovered classified materials.

Subsequent searches of Biden-occupied properties turned up additional materials at his Delaware home. Biden himself had condemned former President Donald Trump for his handling of classified materials in mid-2022 following an FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has since appointed special counsel Robert Hur to handle the Department of Justice's investigations into matters related to Biden.
