President Joe Biden has hired Democrat lawyer Bob Bauer to represent him in the ongoing special counsel investigation over classified documents found in his possession at his home and at a private office in Washington, DC.
The White House confirmed to CBS News that Bauer has been hired as Biden’s personal attorney. He is not only a former White House lawyer for President Barack Obama, but also serves as Obama’s representative to the National Archives.
Biden did not have to look far to find a lawyer he trusts. Bauer is married to Anita Dunn, one of his closest communications advisors.
Bauer, a professor at New York University Law School, also performed a public role in Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign as an election lawyer.
On November 20, 2020, Bauer appeared in a press briefing to dismiss President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud and reassure supporters that Biden would ultimately be declared the winner.
