( – Special Counsel Robert K. Hur, appointed by the Department of Justice, is reportedly not planning to recommend charges against President Joe Biden over the mishandling of classified documents during his vice-presidential term. This information, as reported by CNN based on anonymous sources, suggests that Hur’s investigation, while critical of Biden’s actions, will likely not lead to legal action against him. The comprehensive review by Hur’s office is expected to be finalized by the year’s end.

The investigation focused on classified documents found at Biden’s home in Delaware and at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C. Despite this discovery, the likelihood of Biden facing charges seems low, as also indicated in a separate report by The Wall Street Journal.

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump faces a contrasting situation. He was indicted for mishandling classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate. This has led to accusations from Trump and his supporters of a double standard in the justice system, as they compare his case with Biden’s.

Representative James Comer, a Republican and the House Oversight Committee Chair, has voiced concerns over what he perceives as hypocrisy and a lack of transparency in these matters. He pointed out Biden’s criticism of Trump regarding classified documents, despite Biden himself being involved in a similar situation.

Biden’s legal team discovered about ten classified documents from the Obama-Biden administration in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center and proactively notified the National Archives, handing over the documents.

In related news, Trump’s attempt to delay his pretrial hearing and trial was recently denied by a federal judge, as per NBC News. The pretrial hearing is scheduled for May 14, with the trial set to begin on May 20.
