Special counsel Robert Hur is not expected to charge Joe Biden or any of his associates in connection with the mishandling of classified documents at two locations connected to the president, two sources close to the investigation told CNN.
It would bring to an end Hur’s year-long examination into the improper retention of classified documents by Biden from his time as a US senator and as vice president that were found at his Delaware home, as well as at a private office he used after his service in the Obama administration.
Biden said he was unaware he had the documents and that “there’s no there there”.
It’s one less headache for the president as he heads into the coming election but the report is nonetheless expected to go into significant detail about what the special counsel’s office found in its investigation.
Investigators on Hur’s team have told other Justice Department officials that they hope to have the report completed by the end of the year, but that deadline could get pushed back.
