DOJ Missed Deadline to Hand Over Robert Hur Transcribed Interview

The Department of Justice (DOJ) missed the deadline to hand over Special Counsel Robert Hur’s transcribed interview describing Joe Biden’s “poor memory.”

If the DOJ released the interview, Congress could determine the extent of Biden’s memory problems.

The Justice Department was given until February 19 at 5 pm to provide the transcript.

“We haven’t received what we requested and everything is on the table as to what is next,” a House Judiciary Committee spokesperson told the Daily Caller.

Similarly, a House Oversight Committee spokesperson said, “The DOJ has not provided the materials requested and the committees will soon follow up about the chairmen’s request.”

Hur is scheduled to appear before the Judiciary Committee on March 12 to discuss his report on Biden’s mishandled documents case.

Earlier this month, the Special Counsel’s Office wrote, “Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen.”

“Mr. Biden’s memory was significantly limited, both during his recorded interviews with the ghostwriter in 2017, and in his interview with our office in 2023,” the report adds. “And his cooperation with our investigation, including by reporting to the government that the Afghanistan documents were in his Delaware garage, will likely convince some jurors that he made an innocent mistake, rather than acting willfully – that is, with intent to break the law – as the statute requires.”

“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Eiden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur’s report read. “Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt. It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him – by then a former president well into his eighties – of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”
