While most of the media continue to focus solely on the indictments faced by former President Donald Trump, President Joe Biden is still dealing with a classified documents investigation of his own doing.
According to The Daily Wire, that case could soon rise to the top of the news cycle one more as it was reported prosecutors are negotiating with the president's lawyers over an interview that they'd like to have with him.
It was reported by NBC News that Special Counsel Robert Hur is currently negotiating the terms of the upcoming interview.
The reports are notable, as it was pointed out that when terms of an interview are discussed, a case is usually wrapping up its last phases.
The outlet noted:
The criminal investigation into Biden, which has taken a backseat in the media to his son’s and former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles, began back in January when classified information dating back to when Biden was a U.S. Senator was discovered at multiple locations connected to him.

Tom Fitton weighed in on the NBC News report, claiming that the investigation and interview have been purposely stalled by Biden and the DOJ.
"Biden legal team and Biden DOJ slow-walking interview (and any serious investigation) over Biden's mishandling and theft of classified documents," Fitton wrote.

NBC News noted:
Most of the classified documents discovered in November and this year were related to Biden’s time as vice president, according to his attorneys, though some also pertained to his time as a U.S. senator. The documents were found in an office Biden used after he left the vice presidency and at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
Former President Donald Trump has, on many occasions, questioned why he has already been indicted in a similar case while Biden, who lacked any type of declassification powers in his particular case, seems to be able to walk freely.
Trump, who faces 37 counts in his classified documents-related indictment, pleaded not guilty to all of them, including a more serious charge of violating the Espionage Act.
President Biden previously pledged to cooperate "fully and completely" with investigators in his classified documents case, but one can be assured it'll be under the most favorable terms to his legal team.
Only time will tell if Biden winds up in the same boat as Trump, but one wouldn't be advised to place that bet.
