(TheIndependentStar.com) – Underscoring the weaponization of the Department of Justice towards Republicans, Special Counsel Robert Hur is reportedly not expected to bring any charges after his investigation into Joe Biden’s mismanagement of classified documents, as per multiple sources.
This investigation, which began in January following Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of Hur, has focused on Biden and his aides’ handling of these sensitive documents.
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), citing individuals familiar with the matter, first reported that while Hur’s investigation will likely criticize the approach taken by Biden and his team towards classified documents, it does not anticipate criminal charges as an outcome. This report is projected to be completed by the end of the year, according to information provided by Hur’s team to the Department of Justice (DOJ), as reported by CNN.
Over the course of this investigation, Biden and approximately 100 of his aides have been interviewed. Notably, among those interviewed is Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who has been a figure of controversy. The WSJ disclosed that Hunter, who was indicted in September on three federal gun charges and pleaded not guilty at an October arraignment, was part of this investigative process.
Furthermore, significant political figures such as Secretary of State Tony Blinken, former Biden White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan were also spoken to by Hur’s team, as per WSJ’s report.
In October, the House Oversight Committee engaged with this issue, sending a letter to Hur requesting details on whether any of the classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center and Joe Biden’s Delaware residence, which date back to his vice presidency and his long tenure in the Senate, pertained to Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
Additionally, the Oversight Committee identified Kathy Chung, a Defense Department aide and former Vice President Biden aide recommended by Hunter Biden, as one of the individuals involved in handling these classified documents.
This ongoing scrutiny has further extended to former White House Counsel Dana Remus, whom the Oversight Committee subpoenaed in November to provide a deposition regarding the methods employed by Biden aides in managing the classified documents.
