The US Department of Justice has announced that it will appoint a special council to investigate President Joe Biden for possible violation of the Espionage Act. This follows the discovery of a second batch of classified documents that he had been dealing with while in office. The documents relate to dealings with China, Russia, and Ukraine.
The discovery of these documents has raised concerns about the President’s ability to continue in office and his chances of running for a second term. It is not yet clear what impact this will have on his presidency or his political future.
In addition to these concerns, the President is also facing scrutiny over his son, Hunter Biden, and his brother. This has further complicated matters for the President and could potentially lead to further legal trouble.
The situation has drawn comparisons to the FBI raid on former President Trump, who had been declassified the documents he was raided for. In contrast, President Biden was not authorized to possess these documents, and if he took them from the White House without permission, he could face serious charges. It should also be noted that the allegations against Trump have serious difficulties for legal action, in that the former president has asserted all items he had in his possession at his residence in Florida had been declassified by him prior to removal from the White House while he was still in office.
It remains to be seen what the investigation will uncover and what impact it will have on the Biden presidency. However, the appointment of a special council suggests that this is a serious matter that will require careful consideration and investigation. The public will undoubtedly be watching closely to see how this situation unfolds.
