Garland’s decision underscores the gravity of the discoveries, which included one set of documents found at an office space Biden used and another set found in the garage of his Wilmington home.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said he is appointing a special counsel — former U.S. attorney Robert Hur — to review the storage of sensitive documents discovered in spaces used by President Joe Biden during the years preceding his return to the White House.

“The extraordinary circumstances here require the appointment of a special counsel for this matter,” Garland said during a press conference. “This appointment underscores for the public the department’s commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters; and to making decisions indisputably guided only by the facts and the law.”
