The Wall Street Journal has reported that Robert Hur, the special counsel investigating Joe Biden’s stolen classified documents, is not expected to bring criminal charges.
Instead, it is anticipated that a report will be released on the investigation.
Five White House aides have been implicated in this scandal, including former White House Counsel Dana Remus.
“The prosecutor investigating why classified documents ended up at President Biden’s home and former office is preparing a report that is expected to be sharply critical of how he and his longtime aides handled the material, but the probe isn’t likely to result in a criminal case, according to people familiar with the matter.” The Wall Street Journal reported.
“Since his appointment in January, Special Counsel Robert Hur has interviewed roughly 100 of Biden’s aides, colleagues and family members, including his son, Hunter, culminating in a two-day interview with the president last month.” The Wall Street Journal said.
Joe Biden allegedly obtained and stored classified documents designated by the SCIF that were not kept in an appropriate manner at the Penn Biden Center.
Biden also stored classified documents in his garage next to his Corvette where his son Hunter had access to the sensitive materials.
Nine boxes of documents were taken from Joe Biden’s lawyer’s Boston office, and the National Archives has not revealed what is inside them.
This has raised speculation around the contents as well as questions around potential involvement by the Biden administration in withholding information from the Senate Intelligence Committee.
In response to this, Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur as a special counsel to investigate the stolen documents in January 2021.
Joe Biden was subsequently interviewed by Special Counsel Hur 10 months later regarding his handling of these classified documents.
Biden’s scandal spokesman Ian Sams recently stated that Biden spent two days with Special Counsel Robert Hur about his handling of stolen classified documents.
