According to Special Counsel Robert Hur, Joe Biden willfully kept classified documents after leaving government, but according to Hur’s report, Biden’s memory was so bad that he would present himself to a jury as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” During interviewing for the investigation, Biden couldn’t correctly remember information about the biggest moments of his life, including his son Beau’s death, and his tenure as Vice President. Hur declined to prosecute Biden. The Daily Caller’s Reagan Reese reports:
President Joe Biden forgot when his term as vice president began and ended and when his son Beau had died during an interview with the special counsel reviewing Biden’s handling of classified documents.
Special Counsel Robert Hur concluded his investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents and declined to pursue criminal charges, the report released Thursday said. During an interview with the special counsel, the president appeared to forget the timeline of his vice presidency and could not remember when his late son, Beau Biden, died.
“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (‘if it was 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?’), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (‘in 2009, am I still Vice President?’),” Hur wrote in the report.
“He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died. And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him,” Hur continued about the president.
Hur’s report repeatedly notes that Biden appeared to have a poor memory, even going as far as to say that if the president were to appear before a jury, he would present himself as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” Hur concluded that Biden willfully kept classified documents relating to U.S. foreign policy in Afghanistan and handwritten notebook entries concerning sensitive national security matters. Biden held on to the documents as a private citizen after the conclusion of his vice presidency.
