Biden classified documents: Jordan demands Garland hand over Hur special counsel memo

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is demanding that Attorney General Merrick Garland deliver the committee an “unredacted” copy of the memorandum “outlining the scope” of the special counsel’s investigation into President Joe Biden’s “mishandling of classified information.”

Jordan sent a letter to Garland Tuesday requesting the information about special counsel Robert K. Hur’s investigation as well as any information preceding or relating to his appointment as special counsel.


Jordan’s letter begins by saying, “The Committee on the Judiciary is conducting oversight of programs and operations of the Department of Justice.” The Ohio Republican then requests the memo be sent to the committee by no later than 5 p.m. on June 20.

Jordan told Garland that his committee “is continuing to investigate” the FBI’s “unprecedented raid” of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort home in August, with Jordan saying he wanted more information on what Smith has been up to since being appointed by Garland in November. He also gave the attorney general until June 20 to send that memo.

Jordan had also pressed Garland in a letter on Friday about special counsel John Durham’s findings related to the faulty origin of the Trump-Russia investigation and the “failings” of the FBI. Durham is slated to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on June 21.

In the Hur investigation, Biden’s personal attorneys said they first discovered classified documents last November at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C. Biden’s lawyers then found more classified documents at his Wilmington home in Delaware, and the Department of Justice found more when it conducted its own search.

The Justice Department appointed Hur to investigate the Biden classified documents probe in January.
