A new report on President Joe Biden’s private documents has led to controversy surrounding his conduct and capability as a two-term presidential candidate.
Special Counsel Robert Hur- who was appointed in January of last year to examine why sensitive records ended up in Biden’s home and former office- has finished his investigation into the President’s handling of classified material and written a report on the matter. It is worth noting that from what is currently known, while there is criticism, there is no question of any criminal activity, nd that President Biden has been completely cooperative in the process.
As part of the investigation, Hur interviewed both Biden and his son Hunter.
The classified documents were originally discovered by Biden’s personal attorneys as they moved his items out of the office at the Penn Biden Center and Biden’s home in Delaware.
These records are not from his presidential tenure, but reportedly, from the Obama Administration era, and some of them are said to date back to Biden’s time as a senator, as reported by his attorney, Bob Bauer, in January of 2023.
Biden used the Penn Biden Center as a personal office after he finished serving as vice president.
This special report, which could shift the dynamic of the upcoming presidential election, is expected to be shared with Congress and made public in the days to come.
A spokesman for Hur declined to comment on the potential release of the documents, as did a representative for Biden.
Hur is not expected to recommend criminal charges based on the classified records, although the report is projected to include new details about how the documents were stored in Biden’s residence.
Those working with Biden on his campaign have expressed concerns that the revelations could disrupt his presidential run against Donald Trump, who stands as the likely Republican nominee despite all of his legal conflicts and the potential removal of his name from the ballot in Maine and Colorado.
Trump is still currently awaiting trial in Florida as he was indicted last June on federal charges connected to his handling of more than 100 classified documents found at the club Mar-a-Lago that contained “top secret” markings. He has pleaded not guilty to these charges.
The White House, along with Biden’s personal attorney Bauer, has to yet publicly comment on the completion of the investigation report.
