Special Counsel Robert Hur has completed his investigation into President Joe Biden’s management of classified documents from his time as vice president.
Appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland, Hur’s inquiry centered on documents found at Biden’s former office and Delaware home, sparking an investigation into how these classified documents were handled.
Garland has expressed a commitment to transparency, stating his intention to release as much of Hur’s report as possible following a privileged review by the White House, expected to conclude by the week’s end. Throughout the investigation, Biden has claimed his innocence, emphasizing prompt notification to the National Archives and full cooperation with the Justice Department upon discovering the documents. Despite the lengthy duration of Hur’s investigation, recent reports suggest Biden may not face charges, although the report criticizes the handling of the sensitive documents.
Comparisons have been made between this investigation and former President Donald Trump, particularly regarding handling and retaining classified materials. Trump, who faces numerous charges related to possessing classified records after leaving office, has previously criticized the Justice Department’s handling of Biden’s classified document investigation.
