Biden and Trump “could both provide special advice” on classified documents.
CNN anchor Caitlan Collins said Wednesday on “The Leader” that a special counsel may be appointed to investigate President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents after another bundle was found on his former desk on Wednesday.
Anchor Jake Tapper said, “How does the Biden White House feel about this, especially the possibility of a new special counsel?”
“They don’t want a special counsel,” Collins said. They believe that this does not require a special attorney. They were trying to resist the Trump case and what’s going on here, the number of documents, and Trump’s attempts to turn them over to the federal government.
He continued, “We don’t know what those numbers are and what the contents of the documents are regarding President Biden and what he took when he left office. . The White House is trying to make that distinction. Special advice is not for them. It will be decided by the Prosecutor General. You can see him trying to explain that this review isn’t political by putting a Trump-appointed U.S. attorney on it.
He added: “Whether this eventually leads to a special counsel is a big question, even for them. It would be their headache. It would be like Trump’s case because they both have special counsel.
