President Biden was recently interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Hur regarding the investigation into his handling of classified documents from his vice-presidential tenure, as confirmed by the White House.
The interview, which took place over two days – Sunday and Monday, delves into the discovery of classified documents at Biden’s residence and an old office.
Spokesperson Ian Sams said, “The President has been interviewed as part of the investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Hur.” He emphasized the cooperation and transparency of the President and the White House in the matter.
The central focus of Hur’s investigation revolves around classified documents from Biden’s vice-presidential period found at his Delaware home and a University of Pennsylvania office in Washington, D.C. Biden, who previously stated there hadn’t been any interview requests from the special counsel until now, maintains his innocence.
This investigation mirrors parallel inquiries into former President Trump and ex-Vice President Mike Pence. Trump faces charges regarding the mishandling of around 300 classified documents discovered at his Mar-a-Lago residence, while Pence was investigated for classified documents found at his Indiana home. Trump has since pleaded not guilty to his charges, while Pence’s inquiry concluded without any findings of misconduct.
