Special Counsel Hur defends Biden report as transcripts are released

by ian

Robert Hur appeared before the House Judiciary Committee earlier today. There, the Special Counsel defended his report on President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, saying his assessment of Biden’s memory was “accurate and fair.”

Last month, Hur chose not to bring charges against the president for willfully retaining classified documents, saying it’s unlikely a jury would convict Biden due to his memory problems. Hur says Biden couldn’t remember key dates from his life – such as when his son Beau died.

The White House slammed Hur’s report at the time, calling it “inaccurate” and “politically motivated.” But interview transcripts recently shared by the New York Times show Hur was correct.

The transcripts indicate Biden had to be reminded that his son died in 2015 along with the dates of his Vice Presidency and when Donald Trump was elected, among other topics.
