President Joe Biden sat for a voluntary interview with special counsel Robert Hur as a part of his classified documents investigation, according to the White House.
Biden met with Hur on Sunday and Monday. Hur was appointed to oversee the Justice Department’s investigation into classified documents found at Biden’s home and an old office.
“The President has been interviewed as part of the investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Hur,” White House counsel’s office spokesperson Ian Sams said in a statement. “The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday.
“As we have said from the beginning, the President and the White House are cooperating with this investigation, and as it has been appropriate, we have provided relevant updates publicly, being as transparent as we can consistent with protecting and preserving the integrity of the investigation,” Sams added. “We would refer other questions to the Justice Department at this time.”
Biden has maintained that he did nothing wrong and was surprised to learn that classified documents were found in his former office. Biden’s team has also repeatedly said his lawyers notified authorities immediately after discovering the documents.
