Special counsel Robert Hur interviewed President Biden over a two-day period as part of an investigation into his handling of classified documents, the White House disclosed Monday.
Hur is examining how classified documents ended up at Biden’s home and a private office between the time he was a U.S. senator and a vice president.
“The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday,” Ian Sams, a White House spokesman, said in a statement.
The investigation began after Biden’s lawyers reported they had found several classified documents in a storage closet at an office at a Washington think tank, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.
Several more documents were found during a follow-up search at Biden’s home in Delaware.
Another special counsel investigation has led to charge against former President Trump, who is accused of mishandling classified documents and impeding investigators.
