President Biden’s testimony to Special Counsel Robert Hur showed that Biden himself, not Hur, brought up the death of his son Beau in response to questions about where Biden kept certain papers from his time after leaving the Vice Presidency.

While Biden later claimed Hur asked about his son’s death, the transcript revealed Biden mentioned the timeframe around his son’s illness and death unprompted when discussing where he stored documents.

“I know there’s some attention paid to some language in the report about my recollection of events. There’s even a reference that I don’t remember when my son died,” Biden said.

“How in the hell dare he raise that. Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself it wasn’t any of their [expletive] business,” he said.

“Remember, in this timeframe, my son is — either been deployed or is dying, and, and so it was — and by the way, there were still a lot of people at the time when I got out of the Senate that were encouraging me to run in this period, except the President,” the transcript revealed Biden as saying.

“I’m not — and not a mean thing to say. He just thought that she had a better shot of winning the presidency than i did. And so I hadn’t, I hadn’t, at this point — even thought I’m at Penn, I hadn’t walked away from the idea that I may run for office again. But if I ran again, I’d be running for President. And, and so what was happening, though — what month did Beau die? Oh, God, May 30 –,” he said.

Hur is testifying before Congress about Biden’s handling of classified materials after leaving office in 2017.
