Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed a special counsel to assess the Biden-Obama documents probe. Robert K. Hur, a former U.S. attorney in Maryland, will serve as special counsel.

He asks whether appointment of a special counsel was warranted in the Biden case, even for the sake of consistency with the Trump case. The differences between the two cases are glaring, he says.
