Biden interviewed for two days by prosecutor in classified documents probe
"The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday," a spokesperson said.
President Joe Biden met with special counsel Robert Hur over the past two days regarding the allegedly mishandled classified documents that were discovered in his home and office, the White House said Monday.
"The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday," White House spokesperson Ian Sams said, according to The New York Times.
Classified documents were found on several occasions in Biden's home and office from December 2022 through January 2023.
The interview was reportedly scheduled before Hamas invaded Israel, resulting in more than 900 deaths in Israel and a declaration of war from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The interview may signal that Hur is close to concluding his probe.
"As we have said from the beginning, the president and the White House are cooperating with this investigation, and as it has been appropriate, we have provided relevant updates publicly, being as transparent as we can consistent with protecting and preserving the integrity of the investigation," Sams also said.
No charges have been filed against Biden in the case as of Oct. 9, but former President Donald Trump faces multiple charges related to his alleged mishandling of classified documents. That trial is scheduled for March 2024, but Trump asked for it to be moved until after the 2024 election.
