Special investigation into Biden's handling of classified docs is DONE - but ... trends now
A probe into President Joe Biden's handling of classified documents has been completed, but witnesses are reportedly not being allowed to review the report.
The Justice Department expects to release the report to Congress and the public soon, Attorney General Merrick Garland told lawmakers in a letter Wednesday.
Garland did not detail the conclusions of the report from special counsel Robert Hur, but said he was committed to disclosing as much of the document as possible once the White House completes a review for potential executive privilege concerns.
The process is expected to be completed by the end of the week, said Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House counsel's office.
However, witnesses who cooperated in the case who asked Hur to allow them to review the documents prior to publication have had their requests denied, ABC News reports.
The Justice Department special counsel investigating President Joe Biden's handling of classified documents has completed his inquiry and a report is expected to be made public soon
However, witnesses who contributed to the investigation said that they have been pleading to be allowed to review it prior to publication
Attorney Michael Bromwich said he has repeatedly suggested to Hur's team that he could miss 'proper factual context' unless his clients are allowed to review. However, the lawyer claims his requests have fallen on deaf ears.
The reluctance to allow anyone to review the report has sparked fears in the White House that its contents could be damning for the president, 81.
