Joe Biden will reportedly not be charged by the special counsel looking into his retention of classified documents.
Documents were found in Biden’s garage and the Penn Biden center.
President Joe Biden is not expected to be charged for his retention of classified documents stemming from his time as vice president and U.S. senator.
The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that special counsel Robert Hur and his team are preparing a detailed report that will be critical about the president’s mishandling of classified materials, but no criminal charges will be filed following a nearly year-long investigation.
Since his appointment in January, 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 Journal reported.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Hur after classified documents were found in the garage of Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home, as well as at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C.
Trump responded to the news on Truth Social.
He said, “WE ARE LIVING IN A VERY CORRUPT COUNTRY!”
WOW! FAKE NEWS CNN, THROUGH A LEAK FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE, HAS JUST REPORTED THAT NO CHARGES WILL BE FILED IN THE (MUCH BIGGER THAN MINE!!!) CROOKED JOE BIDEN DOCUMENTS CASE. WE ARE LIVING IN A VERY CORRUPT COUNTRY!
