Special Counsel Attached To Investigation Of Biden Classified Documents Connected To Steel Dossier

Special Counsel Robert Hur, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday to launch an investigation into President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, was actually one of the people at the Justice Department who was in possession of knowledge about the Russia hoax that was used to attack former President Donald Trump.

A report from Breitbart says that a document from the Justice Department has revealed that Hur, a former official with the Justice Department, handled, participated in, or have personal knowledge of the FBI’s relationship and communications with” Christopher Steele, the man who put together the now infamous dossier that started the whole Russia collusion hoax.

Hur began his career by clerking for the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist after graduating from Harvard and Stanford. Hur was then hired as the principal associate deputy attorney general, “serving as the top aide to Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general under President Donald Trump. Before that, he had also been special assistant to Christopher A. Wray, who was leading the Justice Department’s criminal division at the time and went on to become the FBI director,” according to the Washington Post,” Breitbart continued.

“Rosenstein announced Hur’s appointment in a press release, praising him as having ‘experience and judgment [that] will advance our efforts to deter crime, promote the rule of law, and ensure equal justice for everyone,'” the report added.

In 2018, the former president nominated Hur to help lead the Maryland U.S. attorney’s office. He was then unanimously confirmed by the Senate in March of the same year.

“Under Hur’s direction at the Maryland U.S. attorney’s office, he ‘brought and resolved charges for corruption and/or fraud against dozens of elected officials, public office holders, and public employees,’ according to the Justice Department’s press release,” the report stated.

While Hur was serving in this position, the U.S. attorney’s office in Maryland was reported as being one of the busiest in the country. He prosecuted the case of a former National Security Agency contractor who is alleged to have stolen classified information from the hands of the federal government. This particular theft is one of the largest of classified documents in our nation’s history.

Then, in February of 2021, Hur left the U.S. attorney’s office and teamed up with the global legal offices of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, which is a firm that largely handles white-collar crime and regulatory matters. The firm employs “1,800 lawyers in 20 offices in major cities throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America,” its website says.

“Hur’s appointment as a special prosecutor on Thursday comes as Republicans have slammed Biden’s double standard of justice. Two weeks after Biden’s classified documents were unearthed at the Penn Biden Center, Garland named a special counsel to investigate Trump, not Biden. Garland only appointed Hur after classified documents were found at Biden’s residence,” Breitbart News wrote.

“The double standard of the corrupt DOJ and FBI, which have been weaponized against Joe Biden’s political opponents, could not be more clear,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the third highest ranking House Republican, went on to tell Breitbart News.

“The American people are watching as classified documents are uncovered at Joe Biden’s ‘think tank’ and now in Joe Biden’s own garage, but they have yet to see the same action taken by these agencies that launched an unprecedented raid against President Donald Trump’s home,” she continued.

Rep. James Comer, the chairman for the House Oversight Committee and a Republican from Kentucky, said that “With or without a special counsel, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee will investigate President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.”

Congresswoman Lauren Boebart went on to say that she hopes the special counsel wasn’t created to help cover up the wrongdoing committed by Biden in this situation. “Let’s hope this amounts to more than just a cover-up of the scandal.”
