Unlike Mr. Trump, Mr. Biden so far as is known did not resist requests to return documents, and in fact his lawyers discovered them without being asked and promptly returned them.

I also said we’re cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review.”The post Special Counsel Inquiry Leaves Biden and Garland in Awkward Spots appeared first on New York Times.
