to updateUS President Joe Biden was questioned on Sunday and Monday as part of the investigation into secret documents found in one of his former offices and at his home at the end of last year. The White House announced this on Monday. The 80-year-old president spoke voluntarily with Robert Hoare, who was specially appointed to investigate Biden’s actions.
In January, Hoare was assigned to examine how the president and his lawyers handled classified documents from the Obama era (2009-2017), when Biden was vice president. These documents were found late last year in Biden’s garage, his home in Delaware, and in Biden’s private office at a research center in Washington.
Biden is not suspected of a criminal offense, and US media have reported that it is not unusual for a president to be the subject of a federal investigation. Nothing has been revealed about what Biden said to Hoare in recent days. The official spokesman merely said that the president is fully cooperating with the investigation.
Hoare has interviewed 100 witnesses in recent months, from high-level advisers to executive aides and at least one White House lawyer, according to ABC News. Some were reportedly asked to return for follow-up interviews.
The discovery of secret documents in Biden’s home is a sensitive issue in the United States due to the criminal case filed against former President Donald Trump. Boxes filled with confidential documents were found at his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach. Trump says he’s innocent, and a judge likely won’t hear the case until next year.
Under US law, secret documents are not allowed to be kept after leaving office. The material must be transferred to the National Archives.
