Special counsel finds Biden ‘willfully’ retained classified documents, no charges filed

News

A special counsel investigating President Biden’s handling of classified materials concluded his case, determining that Biden “willfully” retained classified documents but stopping short of bringing charges against the president. Special counsel Robert Hur released his findings in a 388-page report after a roughly yearlong investigation into how classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president ended up at an old office space and at his Wilmington, Del., home. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Hur in January as a special counsel, tasking him with determining whether any laws were violated given the mishandling of the records. While Hur concluded neither Biden nor his staff broke the law in removing the records, he was critical of their handling of the sensitive records.
