(FeaturedNews.com) – On Tuesday, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) urged the Department of Justice to treat the two different cases of classified documents equally.
Both President Biden and former President Trump are currently facing investigations over the classified documents that were found in their respective offices and homes. McConnell, who had not had the best relationship with the former president in the past two years, said that federal prosecutors should conduct both investigations equally. He added that this was why he supported the Attorney General’s decision to have two different special counsels appointed to each of the two cases.
During an interview with Terry Meiners on Kentucky’s NewsRadio 840 WHAS, McConnell also added that everything that was good for one was good for the other, especially as both are presidential candidates.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur, the former U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland, to act as Special Counsel looking into the three batches of classified documents that were found in Biden’s private office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C., and in his Wilmington, Delaware home.
Between the three batches, there were less than two dozen classified documents found in Biden’s possession.
In November, Garland appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith to oversee the investigation into the more than 300 classified documents that were seized from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate following an FBI raid.
Trump has previously accused the Justice Department that their investigation was entirely politically motivated. He also went as far as to call Smith a “political hitman.”
