Lawyer in Trump impeachment praises Biden for handling of classified


0


Rep. Dan Goldman, D-N.Y., who previously served as House impeachment counsel against former President Donald Trump, lauded the Biden administration for how they have been handling the matter of classified documents at President Biden’s home – contrasting this with a similar matter involving Trump.

Last week, Goldman had said appointing a special counsel in the Biden case would not be necessary, but now that Robert Hur has been put in that role, Goldman supported the decision.

“I don’t think it was a mistake. I don’t think any of us really have a good understanding of what information the attorney general had when he decided to appoint Mr. Hur as the special counsel,” Goldman told “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan in a CBS interview. “But I do think it goes to a really important fact that is being missed here, which is that this administration is doing things by the book. There is a divide and a separation between the Department of Justice and the White House that certainly did not exist in the last administration.”

Goldman elaborated by noting that Biden’s team reached out to the Justice Department and National Archives, saying that “they have done everything they can to cooperate.” Goldman said this is “in direct contrast to what former President Trump has done, where he has obstructed justice at every turn.”

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was raided by the FBI last year, and federal authorities recovered classified documents from the premises. Trump and his team have claimed that the former president had been working with the National Archives prior to the raid.
