Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the conclusion of the special counsel’s investigation into President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified material.

The letter to congressional leaders did not mention criminal charges, stating that the report will be made public after a White House privilege review.

“On February 5, 2024 … Special Counsel [Robert K.] Hur submitted to me his final report accompanied by appendices and a letter from counsel,” Garland wrote.

“Prior to submitting his report to me, Special Counsel Hur engaged with the White House Counsel’s Office and the President’s personal counsel to allow comments on the report. That included review by the White House Counsel’s Office for executive privilege consistent with the President’s constitutional prerogatives.”

The investigation was initiated after classified documents were found in Biden’s garage and the Penn Biden Center.

“The White House’s privilege review has not yet concluded,” Garland said.

“As have made clear regarding each Special Counsel who has served since I have taken office, I am committed to making as much of the Special Counsel’s report public as possible, consistent with legal requirements and Department policy. I will produce to Congress the report, its appendices, and the letter from counsel following completion of the White House’s privilege review.”

No charges are expected, as the Justice Department is limited in charging a sitting president.

The report’s potential impact on Biden during an election year is a concern, as it could be used by political opponents.

“One of Trump’s recurring lines of defense is the assertion of equivalencies, and this will no doubt play into that as Trump continues to deal with his legal issues,” professor Grant Reeher said. “I would even imagine some narrative to the effect that, if this is what Biden’s own Justice Department produces and concludes, just imagine how bad it really is.”
