We now have a third national leader embroiled in controversy over secret information with the appointment on Thursday of a special counsel to look into Joe Biden’s possession of sensitive records during the four years after he was vice president and before he was president. The FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail server while she was secretary of state in 2016, was well-known for being persistent. Clinton’s election may have been lost due to FBI Director James Comey’s choice to resurrect this subject with two public letters in the campaign’s last weeks. The former president Donald Trump’s Florida estate, Mar-A-Lago, was searched by the FBI on August 8, 2022, as part of an investigation into his alleged possession and potential destruction of official documents. Whether Trump broke the law is being investigated by the special counsel.
