A special prosecutor will investigate Biden’s classified documents

United States Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed an independent prosecutor on Thursday to investigate classified documents found in a former office and private residence of Joe Biden.

Garland said he “signed a document appointing Robert Hur as special prosecutor” that “authorizes him to investigate any person or entity that has violated the law” in this case, he said in a brief speech.

This decision is “in the public interest” and was necessary due to the “extraordinary circumstances”, it added.

He said the appointment demonstrates his department’s commitment “to the independence of the judiciary in particularly sensitive cases, and its commitment to making decisions guided solely by the facts and the law,” he added.

Hur is part of a Washington law firm. Graduating from Stanford and Harvard University, he was a federal prosecutor in Maryland from 2018 to 2021, a position to which he was appointed by Donald Trump.

From 2007 to 2014, while he was an assistant US attorney in the District of Maryland, he worked on cases involving gang violence, firearms crime, drug trafficking and financial institution fraud and corruption, according to the Justice Department.
