The special counsel investigating President Joe Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified documents is not expected to bring any charges against him, according to CNN.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur as special counsel in January after classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president were found at his home in Wilmington, Delaware and his former office at the Penn Biden Center.
Hur is expected to wrap up his investigation by the end of the year and will not bring charges, at least two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
Hur’s decision not to bring charges against Biden will no doubt anger former President Donald Trump who is expected to go on trial next year for his alleged mishandling of classified documents.
However, there are several key differences between the two cases including that Trump refused to hand over the documents despite a year of repeated requests for him to do so by the National Archives. This resulted in the FBI executing a search warrant at his Mar-a-Lago property to retrieve the documents.
On the other hand, Biden and his staff members notified the National Archives immediately after discovering the documents.
