Federal investigators reportedly interviewed a personal attorney to President Joe Biden, but did not use a form to summarize the interview.
Patrick Moore, the attorney identified as the one who initially found classified materials while packing up Biden’s former think tank office, spoke with a team led by U.S. Attorney John Lausch during the initial review of the president’s handling of documents, sources told CNN. The report said Lausch’s team not using a “302” form to memorialize the interview underscored the informal nature of the inquiry at the time. The report also stressed that all statements made to a U.S. attorney’s office carry the same legal weight.
A “source briefed on the matter” said Moore gave non-classified personal documents to the National Archives that included speeches and reference material sent from the Penn Biden Center to the attorney’s law office in Boston, per the report.
[You have an admission of a potential violation of federal statutes, and the FBI didn’t take notes? That seems pretty casual to me. — Ed]
