According to a surprising new report from ABC News, the probe investigating President Joe Biden’s handling of confidential materials has been greatly expanded by federal prosecutors and FBI investigators.
In the past nine months, according to the site, prosecutors and agents from Special Counsel Robert Hur’s office have questioned up to 100 people, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and looked into internal White House procedures.
Even beyond the end of September, some interviews were still done, and some interviewees were even requested to come back for a second interview.
According to ABC News, authorities have apparently accumulated information about Biden’s alleged negligence when handling sensitive information while serving as vice president.
Hur’s office has been obtaining and looking into records dating back to the beginning of former President Barack Obama’s administration and Biden’s time in the Senate as part of the probe.
According to reports, witnesses have been asked about Biden and his aides’ internal policies for handling secret information.
In addition, according to the report, they have also accessed email threads that go back as far as 2010, asked witnesses for clarification, and have reportedly questioned witnesses regarding the use of safes and cabinets.
