Garland nominated Robert Hur to investigate Joe Biden’s criminal activity. Unlike the US president, the vice president does not have the right to take and store classified government documents.

Robert Hur was a US Attorney for the District of Maryland from April 2018 to February 2021. Hur was a Trump nominee.

Robert Hur was a partner with Chris Wray at the powerhouse law firm King & Spalding in 2015.

Kash Patel on Thursday called Hur aserial liar who pushed the Trump-Russia lie for several years, the U.S. deputy attorney general.

Hur’s bio at Gibson Dunn states:

Prior to joining Gibson Dunn, Mr. Hur served as the 48th United States Attorney for the District of Maryland.  Presidentially appointed and unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate, he served from 2018 to 2021 as the chief federal law enforcement officer in Maryland, setting strategic priorities for and supervising one of the largest and busiest U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the nation.  During his tenure as United States Attorney, the Office handled numerous high-profile matters including those involving national security, cybercrime, public corruption, and financial fraud.  In pursuit of sophisticated and impactful cases, Mr. Hur partnered closely with other enforcement agencies including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, and the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.  He also hired dozens of attorneys from diverse backgrounds to bring the Office to its maximum staffing level and as a member of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee, counseled the Attorney General on matters of policy, procedure, and management.

Before serving as United States Attorney, Mr. Hur served as the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. from 2017 to 2018.  In the position of “PADAG,” Mr. Hur was a member of the Department’s senior leadership team and the principal counselor to Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, assisting him with oversight of all components of the Department including the National Security, Civil, Criminal, and Antitrust Divisions, all 93 U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  He also liaised regularly on behalf of the Justice Department with the White House, Congressional committees, and federal intelligence, enforcement and regulatory agencies.

As a U.S. Attorney, Hur led a criminal case against Democrat Catherine Pugh, former Mayor of Baltimore.

Ultimately, Pugh was convicted of wire fraud and tax evasion.

Upon the conviction Hur shared, “Baltimore City faces many pressing issues, and we need our leaders to place the interests of the citizens above their own. Catherine Pugh betrayed the public trust for her personal gain and now faces three years in federal prison, where there is no parole—ever. Law enforcement will remain vigilant to ensure that our citizens receive the honesty and professionalism they deserve from government officials and will prosecute officials who betray the public’s trust.
