Biden says won't speak to AG Garland as Trump indictment unsealed

U.S. President Joe Biden said on Friday he had not spoken to Attorney General Merrick Garland and had no plans to do so, as the Justice Department's indictment of former President Donald Trump was unsealed.
"I have not spoken to him at all and I'm not going to speak with him," Biden said when asked by a reporter if he would speak to the attorney general, continuing a pattern of distancing himself from the DOJ's investigation into his political rival.
Trump faces 37 criminal counts including charges of unauthorized retention of classified documents and conspiracy to obstruct justice after he left the White House in 2021, according to federal court documents made public on Friday.
