Both Biden and Harris are suffering from low approval ratings as they campaign for another four years in the White House. But it was Biden's own attorney general Merrick Garland who named Hur as special counsel in the documents case. Facing a barrage of questions from reporters, Sams, spokesman for the White House Counsel's Office, said that the report contained "gratuitous and inappropriate criticisms." And when you are the first special counsel in history not to indict anybody, there is pressure to criticize," he said. Biden gave his own furious response from the White House on Thursday night, particularly lambasting the special counsel for claiming that he was unable to remember when his son Beau had died.
