Transcript of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur Released

President Biden confused key dates during his October interview with special counsel Robert Hur, forgetting which year his son Beau died of brain cancer, as well as the year Donald Trump was elected president, a transcript of the sitdown shows.

During a discussion of why he kept sensitive papers after leaving the vice presidency in 2017, the 81-year-old president launched in to a rambling explanation before asking: “What month did Beau die? Oh, God, May 30 —“

At that point, White House lawyer Rachel Cotton and an unidentified man reminded Biden the year of his son’s death was 2015.

“Was it 2015 he had died?” Biden responded, according to the transcript.

“It was May of 2015,” he was told.

“It was 2015,” Biden repeated.

The sequence contradicted Biden’s angry claim that Hur had inappropriately raised his son’s death during the interview

“There’s even some reference that I don’t remember when my son died,” the president said Feb. 8. “How the hell dare he raise that? Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself it wasn’t any of their damned business.”

In fact, the transcript shows Biden brought up Beau’s death unprompted by the special counsel.

Moments later, Biden referenced Trump’s election to the presidency and asked if he had been elected in “November of 2017” rather than the previous year.

The transcript was obtained by the New York Times, which published excerpts hours before Hur was due to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about his probe of Biden’s retention of classified national security information after leaving office.

Hur triggered outrage in his report last month, when he said he would not recommend charges against Biden in part because the 81-year-old president would present himself to a jury as an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

    all these do nothings & supporters engaging in this 2 sided law enforcement must be remembered and removed with jail terms for treason

    During the hearing today, it was brought to light that Biden right after he was done being vice President was using a ghost writer to write his memoirs and stated he just found boxes of his papers in his home and also was bragging to his friends about the importance of them. This proves Biden should have been indicted because he knew for years he had those papers and told no one. This is a double standard. I don’t care if he is old or doesn’t remember much, that is not grounds not to indict someone for a crime for which Biden committed. If he did the crime then he should stand trial. There is no difference between Biden and Trump. They both concelled their documents for years. The big difference is Biden bragged about some of the top secret documents which is a much bigger crime.

    Probably a sympathy ploy by Obiden so they would think he is incapable of standing trial but I think he is.
