Special Counsel Robert Hur will testify that his assessment of President Biden’s memory in his investigation into the mishandling of classified documents was “accurate and fair.”

Transcripts from Hur’s interview with Biden showed the president incorrectly stated it was Hur, not him, who brought up the year his son Beau died.

Hur’s report said Biden should not face charges partly due to being an aging man with a poor memory.

“My assessment in the report about the relevance of the President’s memory was necessary and accurate and fair,” Hur wrote. “Most importantly, what I wrote is what I believe the evidence shows, and what I expect jurors would perceive and believe. I did not sanitize my explanation. Nor did I disparage the President unfairly. I explained to the Attorney General my decision and the reasons for it. That’s what I was required to do.”

“I analyzed the evidence as prosecutors routinely do: by assessing its strengths and weaknesses, including by anticipating the ways in which the President’s defense lawyers might poke holes in the government’s case if there were a trial and seek to persuade jurors that the government could not prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt,” Hur wrote.

“There has been a lot of attention paid to language in the report about the President’s memory, so let me say a few words about that,” Hur plans to say. “My task was to determine whether the President retained or disclosed national defense information ‘willfully’—meaning, knowingly and with the intent to do something the law forbids. I could not make that determination without assessing the President’s state of mind.”

The transcripts reveal Biden did mention the year of his son’s death on his own.

“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.”

“And so I hadn’t, I hadn’t at this point … 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,” he said, according to the transcript. “And, and so what was happening though — what month did Beau die? Oh, God, May 30th-”

Former President Trump criticized the investigation, saying Biden had more documents and no authority to keep them as a non-president.

“Big day in Congress for the Biden Documents Hoax. He had many times more documents, including classified documents, than I, or any other president, had. He had them all over the place, with ZERO supervision or security. He does NOT come under the Presidential Records Act, I DO,” Trump said.

“He had many docs in CHINATOWN, and they were moved all over the place, and heavily used. My boxes were moved by GSA, were secure, most carried clothing, shoes, sporting equipment, kitchen ‘stuff,’ newspapers, pictures, magazines, awards, etc. The DOJ gave Biden, and virtually every other person and President, a free pass. Me, I’m still fighting!!! MAGA”

Hur will defend his investigation and report to the House Judiciary Committee.
