(READ) Republicans ask why 9 boxes of Biden records were omitted in Special Counsel report

Department of Justice (DOJ) Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents omitted nine boxes of potentially classified records, according to Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin).

The senators made the existence of the records public after the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) responded to their oversight queries. NARA reportedly confirming that, at DOJ’s urging, it retrieved the 9 boxes out of concern for the sensitivity of their contents.

NARA further acknowledged to the senators that the FBI had reviewed the contents of the boxes. But it is unclear if NARA or the FBI shared their findings with Hur.   

Grassley and Johnson are pressing Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Hur on this “significant factual omission.”

Specifically, the senators are asking for a description of the boxes’ contents and an explanation of what the agencies did with them.  “…[W]e publicly revealed last year that NARA had retrieved nine boxes of Biden records from the Boston office of Patrick Moore, one of Biden’s personal counsels,” the senators wrote.

“Oddly, Special Counsel Hur’s report did not mention NARA’s retrieval of the nine boxes from Mr. Moore’s office… [I]t is unclear if Special Counsel Hur had any awareness of or reviewed the information contained in these nine boxes.” “DOJ, FBI, and the Special Counsel’s office owe Congress and the American people a complete explanation regarding this apparent omission in Special Counsel Hur’s report, a detailed description of the contents of the nine boxes, and what was done with them,” the senators concluded. 

Background information from the senators: Grassley and Johnson were the first in Congress to probe Biden’s mishandling of government records in an initial inquiry to then-White House Counsel Dana Remus in July 2021. Notably, Hur’s report makes clear that several months after Grassley and Johnson kicked off their oversight, Remus began “gathering materials to prepare for potential congressional inquiries” relating to Biden’s files.  

A timeline of the senators’ oversight is below.

  1. The “Clinton Defense” is now the official policy of the regime. They are so confident of their grip on the voting process they just openly destroy evidence or refuse to release it even under subpoena. There is no fear of the voter .

  2. There is NO WAY you can tell me this administration and the different agency heads (you know who they are) are not corrupt in doing their job. Justice, What justice???

  3. It’s hard to figure out why congressional republicans are unable to actually DO anything about Joetard’s corruption, except for all of the perpetual whining.

    It some point, a reasonable person has to wonder whether they’re actually TRYING to do anything, or whether they’re content to run on their ability to whine about things without doing anything about anything.
