Special Counsel Robert Hur, who is investigating President Joe Biden for mishandling documents, is not expected to charge anyone, sources familiar with the matter told CNN and the Wall Street Journal.
The report suggests a double standard of justice. While there will reportedly be no consequences for Biden, Special Counsel Jack Smith indicted former President Donald Trump in June for mishandling classified documents.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Hur in January to investigate Biden after classified documents from his time as vice president in Barack Obama’s administration were found in his possession at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC, and at his Wilmington, Delaware, home.
Hur was among those at the Justice Department who had knowledge about the Russia hoax perpetrated against former President Donald Trump.
Hur will reportedly issue a report on his investigation that could be made public by the end of the year.
Hur’s investigation encompassed 100 Biden aides, colleagues, and family members, including Hunter Biden. Hur also interviewed Joe Biden for two days in October, the Journal reported:
The documents in question date to Biden’s time as vice president during the Obama administration as well as his days in the U.S.
