Today, Special Counsel Robert Hur testified before the House Judiciary Committee regarding his discoveries related to Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.

Last month, Special Counsel Robert Hur published a comprehensive 345-page report detailing his investigation into the stolen classified documents.

The stolen documents in Biden’s possession were found in various states of disarray, stored in damaged cardboard boxes and unlocked drawers at the Penn Biden Center. Additionally, they were easily accessible in Biden’s Delaware garage and basement den.

Robert Hur concluded that Joe Biden “willfully retained” classified materials; however, he opted not to pursue charges. Hur noted evidence suggesting Biden retained classified notebooks, fully aware he was not supposed to do so.

The Justice Department justified its decision not to prosecute Biden, referring to him as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

According to Hur, in 2017, Joe Biden indeed read classified passages about meetings in the Situation Room aloud to his ghostwriter “verbatim on at least three occasions.” Despite this fact, Biden was not charged.

“We also considered whether Mr. Biden willfully disclosed national defense information to his ghostwriter by reading aloud certain classified notebook passages to the ghostwriter nearly verbatim on at least three occasions,” Hur’s report read.

Biden was not charged because jurors could conclude his actions were unintentional.

“Mr. Biden should have known that by reading his unfiltered notes about classified meetings in the Situation Room, he risked sharing classified information with his ghostwriter. But the evidence does not show that when Mr. Biden shared the specific passages with his ghostwriter, Mr. Biden knew the passages were classified and intended to share classified information. Mr. Biden’s lapses in attention and vigilance demonstrate why former officials should not keep classified materials unsecured at home and read them aloud to others, but jurors could well conclude that Mr. Biden’s actions were unintentional. We therefore decline to charge Mr. Biden for disclosure of these passages to his ghostwriter.” the report read.

When asked by a reporter about sharing classified information with his ghostwriter Mark Zwonitzer, Biden shouted, “I DID NOT SHARE CLASSIFED INFORMATION!”


Rep. Matt Gaetz pressed Hur to admit that Biden was lying when he insisted that he did not share classified information with his ghostwriter.

He also got him to admit that Biden lied when he said, “All the stuff that was in my home was in filing cabinets that were either locked, or able to be locked.”


Hur’s report states that Zwonitzer deleted the digital audio files of his conversations with Biden prior to receiving a subpoena.

Technicians managed to retrieve the deleted recordings, however, Zwonitzer faced no charges for deleting them.

Hur acknowledged on Tuesday that Mark Zwonitzer, Biden’s ghostwriter, attempted to destroy evidence shortly after the special counsel was tasked with investigating Biden’s classified documents scandal.
