"Among stored materials in an adjacent room, and no documents were found in the Rehoboth beach residents. Political analyst Larry sabato. Why is it taking so long for the Biden team to release information about these confidential documents since some were discovered in November, even before the midterm election? CBS News special report, I'm Monica ricks. Well, as double D TOP is making clarity reports, Robert Hur, the new special counsel in this case, is best known for his work in Maryland. Robert Hirst served for three years as the U.S. attorney for Maryland and is on the university of Maryland board of regents. Since stepping down from his role as a federal investigator in February of last year, her has worked in private practice in D.C.. During his time as a U.S. attorney appointed by president Trump, her investigated multiple breaches of national security and the actions of elected officials, including two separate cases involving citizens who intentionally removed classified intelligence from the NSA, both were convicted. Her's office also worked with federal partners to build a case against former Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh, who was later convicted of wire fraud, tax evasion, and defrauding the U.S.. Meghan cloher a WTO news. And House speaker Kevin McCarthy says President Biden is not being treated the same way as former president Trump, with regard to the discovery of these classified documents, we get more on that now from WTO's Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. I think Congress has to investigate this. McCarthy held his first news conference as speaker, suggesting it was hypocritical of the president to have criticized the former president for the documents found at Mar-a-Lago. I do not think any American believes that justice should not be equal to all. While a growing number of Republicans are calling for GOP congressman George Santos to resign due to his web of lies, McCarthy is not taking action against him. There are concerns about it. He will go before ethics. If anything is found to be wrong, he will be held accountable. For his part, Santos, who faces several investigations related to his campaign finances, told reporters he will not step down. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller WTO. WTO at three 34 now to Ukraine, Ukrainian officials are issuing a warning today. They say Russia is likely preparing to conduct a massive hybrid attack on Ukraine in the near future. National security correspondent JJ green joins us live now with details JJ. They say this warning is urgent. That's the voice of Natalia. She's the head of the joint press setter for Ukraine's military operational command pivot. She was doing a broadcast today and she said they believe one of these hybrid attacks is being prepared because it's been about 12 days since the last one. And Russia needs from ten to 14 days to reorganize and prepare for the next. After the previous massive attack they carried out in Ukraine. She said they're expecting air and sea launched missiles, as well as drones. Another reason why they think something's about to happen is an uptick in Russian reconnaissance activity. Reporting live, JJ green, WTO, P news. Well, JJ, we have heard this several times in the past about Belarus, possibly being involved in this war. Today you have some new signs of their involvement. What have you learned? Yeah, Ukraine's deputy defense minister Hannah said today that Russia is building up its forces in Ukraine referring to the country's intelligence service. She said that Russia is moving troops that have been trained in Belarus and in Russia to the combat zones to focus on Donetsk and Luhansk. This is in the east of the country and Ukraine says that Russia believes that this is key winning these battles. It's key to Russia essentially achieving its goal of dominating the region. We know Russian troops have been in Belarus. They've been undergoing training. In fact, there is an exercise underway right now there. But most people are concerned about is how long it might take before Belarus goes ahead and sends its own troops to Ukraine to fight because we know that Russia is running short on troops of its own. Back to you. All right, thank you, JJ open national security correspondent JJ green.

A former counselor at a Northern Virginia middle school has been charged with providing false information to the state's sex offender registry. State police arrested 50 year old Darren Thornton today in Richmond. Thornton's time as a counselor at Glasgow middle school in fairfax county has prompted multiple investigations. He was arrested in 2020 for solicitation of a minor as part of an online sting operation in Chesterfield county.

Fairfax county public schools did not place him on leave until this past June when he was again charged in a second online sting by Chesterfield police. This week, though, police acknowledged the emails they sent two fairfax county public schools, never went through because of typos in the email address. While fairfax county superintendent Michelle Reid met today with nearly two dozen families at Glasgow middle, she says mistakes were clearly made that enabled this counselor to remain employed despite a conviction for soliciting soliciting prostitution of a minor.
