Special counsel Robert Hur is expected to not pursue charges related to Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, sources tell CNN.
According to the report, Hur and his team are in the process of creating an elaborate report based on their year-long probe, and it is anticipated to offer a critical assessment of Biden and his staff’s handling of sensitive materials.
Few people ever expected that the administration would ever charge Biden in relation to his mishandling of classified documents, which authorities not only found in his office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., but also in boxes in the garage of his home in Delaware.
Back in September, it was quite clear that Hur’s investigation was not focusing on Biden and any motives he had to take classified documents with him when he left the vice presidency. According to a report at the time, the investigation had morphed into an “examination of Obama-era security protocols and internal White House processes.” I noted at the time that it was obvious that Biden was getting a pass and used the metaphor that a burglar getting off the hook because the home he robbed wasn’t locked.
