    George Washington University (GWU) law professor Jonathan Turley says
    that President Joe Biden’s lawyers are "likely witnesses in a criminal investigation" as the probe into Biden's handling of classified
    documents continues.

    Two stashes of classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president
    were found in the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., as well as at
    the president’s Wilmington, Delaware, house in the garage by his
    Corvette, spiraling the White House into an ongoing scandal after five
    more classified documents were discovered at his Wilmington home over
    the weekend.

    Turley told Fox News Digital that we "do not know what the evidence
    will show" and that the "most serious discovery would be evidence that
    Biden worked off their documents or removed them from their
    classification folders."

    "That would not only destroy the ‘inadvertence’ defense but make his
    public comments potentially deceitful of both the public and
    investigators," Turley said. "While gross mishandling does not require
    evil intent, unintentional violations are often addressed outside of
    the criminal justice system. The most serious violations have been
    prosecuted where material was intentionally removed."

    "Intent can be established not only at the time of the removal but
    during the storage of the documents." he continued. "If these documents
    were used or knowingly possessed over the six years, it would qualify
    as an intentional act to unlawfully possess the material."
