Representative Jordan's request had a deadline for the Department of Justice of June 20th for them to hand over the documents. The letter also emphasized that "The Committee on the Judiciary has jurisdiction to oversee the activities of the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation pursuant to Rule X of the Rules of the House of Representatives."
As Breitbart News reported, Robert Hur was appointed after documents with classified markings were discovered at the Biden Penn Center which dated back when Joe Biden was vice president. More classified marked materials were found at Biden's Delaware home.
The media outlet also noted that this letter about the Special Counsel into Biden's classified documents scandal was dated to the same day when Chairman Jordan sent a similar letter to Mr. Garland inquiring into obtaining an "unredacted copy of the memorandum outlining the scope of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s probes regarding President Trump."
Mr. Smith was appointed to his current post after the FBI raided Trump's house over documents found to have classified markings on them there.
A similar scandal over purported documents with classified markings to them also occurred to Mike Pence, Trump's former vice president. However, Pence was recently cleared of wrongdoing and not charged by the FBI as previously noted by the DC Enquirer.
The conclusion of the investigation into Pence occurred at a favorable time for the former vice president as he was planning on launching his bid for the presidency.
Trump responded to the news by saying "Just announced that they are not going to bring charges against Mike Pence on the document hoax. That’s great, but when am I going to be fully exonerated, I’m at least as innocent as he is. And what about Joe Biden, who is hiding at least 1850 boxes, and some located in Chinatown, DC? When will the witch hunt against 'TRUMP' stop?"
Still many predict that, unlike Pence, the FBI and DOJ will move against Trump and try to press charges of some kind due to political motives.
