Special Counsel appointed to investigate Biden documentsAttorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel, Robert Hur, on Thursday to further review the handling of classified documents found at a former office space used by President Joe Biden and at his Wilmington, Delaware, home.

Hur is a former U.S. attorney in Maryland who will return to the government from private practice in Washington. Hur, who also served as a principal associate deputy attorney general during the Trump administration, is expected to begin work in the coming days, according to a senior Justice Department official who was not authorized to comment publicly.

  • Announcement comes hours after new details of second batch: Garland's move comes hours after the White House disclosed Thursday that a second set of classified records had been recovered in a storage space in the garage at Biden's Wilmington home.
  • Details of the first batch: The White House had announced Monday a "small number" of government records were discovered by the president's personal lawyers Nov. 2, while boxes were packed to vacate the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington. Biden had used the office after leaving office as vice president in 2017 until his presidential campaign in 2020.
