Special Counsel Reveals Why Biden Retained Classified Documents

Further revelations about former Special Counsel Robert Hur's investigation into President Joe Biden's filegate issues have surfaced, potentially posing challenges for the president.

During his appearance before the House Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, Hur addressed some of the misconceptions surrounding his conclusions regarding Biden's alleged mishandling of classified documents.

Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan pressed Hur on why Biden retained the documents despite the determination that removing them from official repositories was illegal.

Hur stated that the investigation did not explicitly address the question of why Biden retained the documents, but Jordan persisted, citing passages from Hur's report indicating Biden's motivations.

Jordan highlighted Biden's plans to write a book, for which he received an $8 million advance, as a significant motive for retaining the classified documents.

According to Jordan, Biden's actions were driven by a combination of financial gain, vanity, and ego, as evidenced by his desire to bolster his legacy as a world leader.

Hur acknowledged the language in his report and the evidence supporting assessments of Biden's motivations.

In another segment of the hearing, Democratic Representative Pramila Jayapal claimed that Hur's investigation had completely exonerated Biden of illegally storing classified documents.

Hur clarified that while his investigation analyzed various statutes, including the Espionage Act, his task was to determine whether sufficient evidence existed for a conviction, not to exonerate Biden.

Despite Jayapal's insistence on Biden's exoneration, Hur emphasized that the term "exoneration" did not appear in his report.

The exchange highlights the nuanced interpretations of Hur's findings and the ongoing scrutiny surrounding Biden's handling of classified materials.
