Ex-US Attorney Raises Alarm Over Silence Of Special Counsel Investigating Joe Biden

Former United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Joseph diGenova, has raised concerns regarding the purported silence of Special Counsel Robert Hur.

Hur is currently investigating President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents during his tenure as vice president.

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Hur as special counsel in January 2023, but diGenova is now questioning the transparency and intentions of the probe.

According to Newsmax on Monday, August 28, 2023, Joseph diGenova’s apprehensions stem from the apparent lack of updates or public statements from Special Counsel Robert Hur.

The appointment of Robert Hur as a special counsel to investigate Biden’s actions came after classified documents, with markings indicating their sensitive nature, were discovered at two locations.

The documents were reportedly discovered at Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware residence, and a University of Pennsylvania office in Washington, D.C., utilized by Biden after his vice presidency concluded.

Throughout the unfolding of this investigation, President Biden has maintained his innocence, asserting that he did nothing wrong.

His legal team has further emphasized that they promptly notified and cooperated with the Justice Department upon discovering the documents, signaling a proactive stance in addressing the matter.

While drawing a contrast between this investigation and the one led by special counsel Jack Smith regarding former President Donald Trump, diGenova highlighted what he perceived as a concerning discrepancy in approach.

According to diGenova, special counsels typically communicate with the public to confirm ongoing investigations and reassure them that progress is being made.

The absence of such communications from Hur has led diGenova to allege a ‘cover-up.’ “Mr. Hur has been silent to a fault,” diGenova said during an interview with Newsmax on Monday.

“One of the things that special counsels do is they let people know that they are investigating. “That they haven’t fallen asleep at the wheel.”

“The fact that there haven’t been any leaks shows you exactly what’s going on. There is a continuing cover-up. “There is an effort to protect Joe Biden. It’s continued,” diGenova asserted.

His words reflect a suspicion that the lack of transparency could be indicative of a larger attempt to shield Biden from potential fallout, rather than conducting an impartial inquiry.

This perspective adds fuel to the growing debate surrounding the motivations behind the investigation and its true objectives.

DiGenova further delved into his concerns by suggesting that the Department of Justice (DOJ) may be inclined to modify its approach depending on the party in power.

He alleged that while Democrats are at the helm, they could potentially manipulate or rewrite the rules to suit their agenda.

This skepticism about the integrity of the DOJ’s actions echoes concerns that have been voiced by critics who fear a political bias might be influencing the course of various investigation into political figures.
