White House Holding Its Breath As Classified Doc Report Arrives

The White House is holding its breath. According to legal experts, Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report discussing his investigation of President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents probe is expected to be published this week. 

Biden has been under investigation since it was revealed that the president was holding classified documents from his time as vice president in various unsecured locations, including his garage in Delaware and in an office at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Fox News explained the problem facing the White House.

President Biden’s team reportedly is fearing that photos included in Special Counsel Robert Hur’s imminent report on the handling of classified documents could impact his 2024 reelection bid. 

Axios reported that Biden’s aides do not expect criminal charges as a result of the investigation, but they are concerned about potentially embarrassing photos included in Hur’s expected report that could be released as soon as this week. The images could show how Biden stored classified materials, which were discovered in late 2022 in the garage of Biden’s Delaware home as well as in a private office. The classified documents were carried over from Biden’s time as former President Obama’s vice president.

Biden’s aides told Axios that they are fearful former President Trump’s campaign could use the photos against the Democrat incumbent ahead of their likely 2024 rematch.

Trump himself is facing more than 40 counts, including obstruction of justice and willful retention of national defense information, for improperly storing classified documents at his private residence at Mar-a-Lago in Florida after leaving the White House, following a probe by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Biden and the White House have shown little remorse as they’ve used a similar breaking of how to handle classified documents to use the Department of Justice to go after Trump. 

“The documents were found by aides between November 2022 and January 2023 and were turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration, where records are sent when an administration ends. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Hur to investigate in January 2023,” according to Newsweek.

“A potential release of Hur’s investigation has been reported by Joyce Vance, a lawyer, professor and former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama. In her newsletter titled “Civil Discourse with Joyce Vance” on February 4, she wrote that the final report could be issued “as early as this week”. Newsweek has contacted the White House and the Department of Justice for comment via email and web form respectively.

What the report will determine is unknown, but Vance said that Biden is unlikely to face any criminal charges relating to the storing of the documents, which included documents labeled “top secret” and U.S. intelligence memos. Axios recently reported that Biden’s aides are concerned the report could include “embarrassing” details about how the documents were stored, which could include photos.”

A year ago, it was revealed that one of the batches of documents Biden took with him were related to Ukraine, Iran, and the United Kingdom. 

The documents connected to Ukraine especially raised eyebrows. 

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee James Comer, who has spent over a year investigating the president’s son, said last year that he believes that the documents were connected to the Biden Family’s ‘influence peddling.’ 

“We don’t the know the true extent of what he [Joe Biden] has done,” Comer said. “All we know is he had classified documents scattered all over the place dating back to the time as U.S. senator.”

“There is one document in particular that I can tell you from my investigation of Biden family influence peddling that we are very concerned about with respect to the document that Hunter Biden sent to officials at Burisma in Ukraine,” Comer continued.

President Biden and the Democrats have shown a remarkable loyalty to Ukraine. The current border security bill being discussed in the Senate will give $20 billion to securing the border while providing $60 billion to Ukraine. 

In promoting the bill, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer appeared to threaten detractors of the bill, saying that if the United States doesn’t send almost as much money to Ukraine as we spend on the Department of Education the president will send troops there to fight Russia.
