President Joe Biden voluntarily submitted to an interview as part of an ongoing investigation into the handling of classified documents.
The investigation, led by Special Counsel Robert Hur, delves into the circumstances surrounding classified documents found at Biden’s former private office and his home.
The White House confirmed the interview, emphasising their commitment to cooperation and transparency in the investigation. Biden’s interview spanned two days, concluding on Monday.
According to Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House counsel’s office, the administration is determined to provide relevant updates while safeguarding the investigation’s integrity.
This probe stems from concerns raised regarding classified documents that date back to Biden’s tenure as vice president under President Barack Obama. The controversy first surfaced when documents were discovered in a private think tank office in Washington in November 2022. Subsequently, more documents were uncovered in Biden’s garage in Wilmington, Delaware, on December 20, and in his home library on January 12.
