home in Wilmington, Delaware, attorney general Merrick garland announced the
appointment of a special counsel Robert Hur to investigate US president, Joe Biden.

Garland’s move comes hours after the white house disclosed that a second set of
classified records had been recovered in a storage space in the garage at Biden

discovered by the president’s personal lawyers on Nov. 2 while boxes were packed to
vacate the Penn Biden center for diplomacy and global engagement in Washington.

the presidential campaign in 2020.
