AG Garland appointed former prosecutor Robert Hur as special counsel to lead the investigation into Obama admin-era classified documents found among President Biden’s papers in two locations. Here’s a summary from CNN:
Attorney General Merrick Garland announced he has appointed a special counsel to take over the investigation into President Joe Biden’s potential mishandling of classified documents.
The White House confirmed Thursday aides located documents with classified markings at two locations inside Biden’s home in Delaware. Biden told reporters the materials were in a locked garage and that he was cooperating fully with the DOJ.
This move won’t stop the howler monkeys from making false equivalencies about Trump’s egregious classified document heist, but it sounds like the right thing to do regardless. Open thread.
