It is expected that President Biden will not be held accountable for the retention of classified material from his tenure as a US senator from Delaware, thus avoiding potential criminal charges.

According to reports from CNN and the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Special Counsel Robert Hur and his team are currently working on a report regarding their extensive investigation. However, it is anticipated that no charges will be filed against anyone involved in the matter.

The Justice Department has a well-established policy that prevents the indictment of a sitting president. This policy is based on the belief that such an indictment would hinder the ability of the executive branch to carry out its constitutional duties. As a result, it is not unexpected that the outcome of this situation aligns with this policy. On January 12, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Hur, who had previously served as a Trump appointee, as the special counsel to investigate the classified document issue involving President Biden.

Garland had appointed Jack Smith as special counsel to investigate the alleged hoarding of national security material by former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort, a decision made approximately two months prior to the current timeframe. In that particular case, Smith's team has filed a total of 40 charges against the former president. The White House has confirmed that Biden willingly participated in an interview with Hur on two separate occasions last month. As the investigation conducted by Hur regarding Biden's actions approaches its conclusion, House Republicans have started indicating their intentions to intensify their focus on the scandal involving classified documents.

The House Oversight Committee Chairman, James Comer (R-Ky.), issued a subpoena to Dana Remus, the former White House counsel, earlier this week. The purpose of the subpoena is to obtain information regarding a specific matter. The impeachment probe against Biden, led by Comer, involves three committees and primarily centers around the foreign business activities of the first family.

In a recent statement, Comer mentioned that his Oversight Committee is currently examining the document situation. He specifically highlighted potential discrepancies in the White House's timeline of events. In January, it was confirmed by the White House that personal attorneys representing Biden had found classified material in his post-presidency office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington. This discovery had taken place in November of the previous year, just days before the midterm elections.


According to a report by CNN, a number of classified documents, approximately 10 in total, were discovered. These documents were found to be associated with the United Kingdom, Ukraine, and Iran, and were marked with designations such as "top secret."

Additional classified documents were discovered at Joe Biden's residence in Wilmington, Delaware. These documents were found alongside images retrieved from Hunter Biden's discarded laptop, which depicted a damaged box labeled "Important Doc's." The images also suggested that Hunter had the ability to access the family garage, where these documents were presumably stored. It is worth noting that the garage was located in close proximity to Joe Biden's 1967 Corvette Stingray, which was parked there.
