(TheRedWire.com) – Rep. Max Miller, R-Ohio, told Newsmax that he did not believe Attorney General Merrick Garland would complete a full investigation of the classified documents found in President Joe Biden’s office. The documents date back to Biden’s time as Vice President and were found in an office that Biden had used between 2017- 2019.
Miller said during “Wake Up America” that an investigation was necessary, but he didn’t “trust” it would take place much like he didn’t “trust Joe Biden to run this country.”
On Monday a Reuters report disclosed that there were at least 10 documents that had “classified” markings on them found in Biden’s office at the Penn Biden Center.
Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, told Reuters that the documents had originally been found while they were clearing the office on Nov. 2, 2022. They had been located in a locked closet in the office that Biden had previously used until the start of his 2020 presidential run.
Garland has so far requested that the U.S. attorney in Chicago reviews the documents in order to decide whether further inquiry is necessary. Only months before the documents were found in Biden’s office, former President Donald Trump had come under fire as an FBI raid into his home led to them seizing hundreds of documents with classified rankings. There is now a Department of Justice investigation into Trump potentially mishandling those documents.
