Special Counsel Robert Hur to Testify Publicly on Biden Age & Memory Issues

Special Counsel Robert Hur is preparing to be grilled by House lawmakers over his recent damning report that highlighted serious concerns with Democrat President Joe Biden’s age and mental fitness.

As Slay News reported, Hur last week released his report on his investigations into Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.

While the conclusion of the report was already controversial, it was Hur’s rationale for not pursuing charges against Biden that caused the biggest stir.

Hur noted in his report that Biden struggled with basic questions during interviews, specifically regarding key elements of his own life.

According to the report, Biden couldn’t remember what year he left the vice presidential office or even when his son Beau died.

The special counsel concluded that a jury wouldn’t convict Biden once they realize he’s an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

The report compounds voters’ long-held concerns about the president’s age and obvious mental decline.

Hur’s testimony, expected to land in early March, would likely be before the House Judiciary Committee, Axios reported Thursday.

Republican lawmakers will surely hone in on the various examples of Biden’s unreliable memory contained in the report.

The testimony will also offer Hur the chance to clear up questions that have been raised after the report’s release.

Biden, for instance, suggested Hur’s team asked him directly about Beau’s death following the release of the report.

“How in the hell dare he raise that?” Biden yelled during a train wreck press conference he called just hours after the report was released.

“Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself, it wasn’t any of their damn business.”

However, a Wednesday report from NBC News stated that it was, in fact, Biden who brought up Beau during the interview, not Hur.

The White House was quick to push back on news of Hur’s testimony on Thursday.

Biden and the Democrats are now pushing the narrative that Hur has a political agenda, despite the special counsel being appointed by the president’s Justice Department.

“As Hur mounts his campaign, there will be another story to tell — of Hur and his deputy being two aggressive political prosecutors from the Trump administration who decided to gun for Biden in an election year for their own political futures as Republicans,” a White House spokesman told Axios.

News of Hur’s testimony comes just days after a Reuters/Ipsos poll found that a majority of Americans, 53%, believe Biden received “special treatment” during Hur’s investigation.

While Hur noted Biden’s memory issues in his report, he declined to recommend charges against the president for mishandling documents.

He cited Biden age and health as reasons not to pursue charges.

Biden’s age and mental capacity have long been top issues for voters.

Polls have found that a large majority of Americans believe he is too old to run for office.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that roughly 78% of respondents said he is too old to serve a second term.

71% of Democrats also hold that position.
