Garland Appoints Special Counsel to Investigate Classified Biden Documents

by Madeleine Hubbard


Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday appointed a special counsel to investigate the classified documents from Joe Biden’s time as vice president.

He said he initially appointed U.S. Attorney John Lausch, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, to conduct the initial investigation, but because Lausch is retiring, a different special counsel needed to be appointed.

Robert Hur, Trump’s pick to be the U.S. attorney for Maryland, was appointed as special counsel to continue the investigation.

The press conference comes hours after the White House confirmed that a second set of classified documents were discovered in the garage of Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware. Earlier this week, officials confirmed that classified records were found on Nov. 2 in Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C.
