Transcript Refutes Biden’s Claim on Bringing Up Son’s Death

( – A transcript of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with President Biden shows that the attorney did not ask Biden about his son Beau. The interview was part of Hur’s investigation into the President’s handling of classified files after lawyers found several in his previous office at the University of Pennsylvania and the garage of his Delaware home. Mr. Hur’s report stated that he would not prosecute the President because the jury may see him as an old man with memory problems. An outraged President Biden told reporters that Hur had asked him about his son’s death, but the transcript reveals this isn’t true.

The records show that President Biden mentioned his son’s death but briefly could not remember the year, which was 2015. In testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, which took place the day after the transcript’s release, Mr. Hur told lawmakers that he needed to provide a reason why he would not prosecute the President, and he chose to attribute this to insufficient memory.

Donald Trump has described the entire affair as a “hoax” and maintains that Biden had more documents in his possession than any other President, but prosecutors chose only to pursue criminal charges against him. On his Truth Social media account, Mr. Trump said, “The DOJ gave Biden, and virtually every other person and President, a free pass.”

During Mr. Hur’s testimony, Republicans said there is a two-tier justice system in America that prosecutes Trump but not others, while Democrats said Hur’s report included “gratuitous” criticism of President Biden. GOP members also pointed to a recorded conversation during which the President told a ghostwriter he had just discovered some classified files. However, in his interview with Hur, Biden said he could not remember this.

The report noted that the President had “wilfully” retained classified files, but Biden insisted he had no knowledge of them or how they ended up in his Delaware garage or his Pennsylvania office.
