Attorney General Garland receives preliminary report on classified documents found in Biden’s private office
A law enforcement source tells CNN that Attorney General Merrick Garland has received the preliminary report on the ten classified documents that were found in President Biden’s private office. The government records dated back from Biden’s time as vice president. They include U.S. intelligence memos and briefing materials that covered topics including Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom, according to a source familiar with the matter. President Biden says he was “surprised” to learn about the documents that were found. Garland now faces the decision on how to proceed and whether or not to open a criminal investigation. Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Elie Honig joins AC360 to discuss what, if any, charges Biden could face if he truly didn’t know about the documents.
