DOJ Refuses to Provide Details on Investigation Into Biden Docs

The Department of Justice (DOJ) refused to provide the House Judiciary Committee with details from their special counsel investigation into the Biden documents. “Disclosures to Congress about active investigations risk jeopardizing those investigations and creating the appearance that Congress may be exerting improper political pressure or attempting to influence Department decisions in certain cases,” the DOJ wrote in a response to Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) request for details. Jordan’s spokesman, Russell Dye, claimed the DOJ’s failure to provide details is a “double standard” and reveals the DOJ’s lack of “cooperation.”

From The Hill:

Attorney General Merrick Garland earlier this month appointed Robert Hur to serve as the special counsel in an investigation into classified records that were found in an office Biden used following his tenure in the Obama administration as well as in his Delaware home and garage.

Garland has similarly appointed a special counsel to review the mishandling of classified records recovered from former President Trump’s home during the execution of a search warrant after authorities determined there could still be materials on site despite multiple requests to return them.

The request from Jordan would require a significant disclosure during an ongoing investigation, something the DOJ says clashes with its internal policies as well as special counsel regulations limiting what information can be shared with Congress.
