NBC News reported:
Notebooks that President Brandon wrote in during his time as vice president are among the items the FBI took from one of his Delaware homes during a search there last week, according to a person familiar with the investigation.
The notebooks were seized because Brandon’s notes on some of the pages relate to his official business as vice president, including details of his diplomatic engagements during the Obama administration, and may refer to classified information, this same person said, adding that the notebooks do not have classified markings on them, but some of the handwritten notes inside them could be considered as such given their sensitive content.
Other pages in the notebooks, while they may not contain potentially classified information, could still be considered government property under the Presidential Records Act because they pertain to official business Brandon conducted as vice president, according to the person familiar with the investigation.
The notebooks include a mix of handwritten notes from Brandon on various topics, both personal and official, according to the person familiar with the seizure. On some pages Brandon wrote down things about his family or his life unrelated to public office, said this same person. On other pages, he memorialized in writing some of his experiences or thoughts as vice president at the time, according to this same source.
Brandon stored classified documents in his private office located in DC.
He also stored classified materials in his garage next his Corvette.
