(PartiallyPolitics.com) On Friday Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) noted regarding the appointment of a special counsel that will investigate the classified documents found in President Biden’s possession and dating back to his time as vice president that Attorney General Merrick Garland had his full support.

During an interview with CNN, he noted that special prosecutors are being used for both cases of classified documents. That includes Biden’s case, but also former President Biden’s case relating to the documents found in his Mar-a-Lago estate.

He further added that these were serious people and that he was just going to wait and see how things unfold. He further added that he would not want to lead them in any direction and special prosecutors know how to handle these cases.

On Thursday, Garland appointed Robert Hur as special counsel following the revelation that a second batch of documents from the Obama-Biden administration had been found in Biden’s storage space in his Wilmington, Del., residence.

Originally, there had been one batch of classified documents found in November in Biden’s old office in Washington, D.C. As soon as the classified documents had been found the National Archives had been notified. The issue was then handed over to the Justice Department launched a review of the documents.

Many have drawn comparisons between Biden’s case and Trump’s case. Trump is facing an investigation after the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago close to 300 classified documents. In Trump’s case, Jack Smith was appointed as special counsel in November. The appointment took place in the same week as Trump’s announcement that he would be running for the Presidency again.
