Confirmed: Joe Biden Lied About Hur Report on His Mishandling of Classified Documents

Joe Biden blatantly lied about former special counsel Robert Hur’s report on his mishandling of classified documents after its release last month, according to Hur’s testimony before Congress and the transcript of Biden’s interview with the special counsel.

In his opening statement before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Hur stated: “My team and I conducted a thorough, independent investigation. We identified evidence that the President willfully retained classified materials after the end of his vice presidency, when he was a private citizen.”

Hur made clear during his testimony that his report did not exonerate Biden, as Democrats were claiming.

 

Hur admitted in polite terms that Biden had been less than truthful about his findings, when pressed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.)

Joe Biden had said during his “trainwreck” presser on February 8, “I did not share classified information, I did not share it. I guarantee I did not.”

“That’s not true, is it?” Gaetz asked.

“That is inconsistent with the findings based on the evidence in my report,” Hur responded.

“It’s a lie,” Gaetz shot back. “That’s what regular people would say, right?”

Laughing, Hur responded, “yeah.”

Hur’s investigation determined that Biden had improperly kept classified documents in multiple locations, including the Penn Center, his garage, his basement den, his third floor den, his main floor office, the University of Delaware, and the Biden Institute.

Gaetz noted that Biden had claimed that all of the classified documents were in lockable filing cabinets. “That’s not true, is it?” Gaetz pressed.

“That was inconsistent with the findings of our investigation,” Hur replied.

“Another lie, people might say,” said Gaetz, noting that some of the classified materials were found in a damaged open box.

“You find in your report that the elements of a federal criminal violation are met, but then you apply this senile cooperator theory that because Joe Biden cooperated and the elevator didn’t go to the top floor, you don’t think you’d get a conviction,” Gaetz said.

 

Hur also made clear that as a prosecutor, his decision not to press charges did not “exonerate” Biden, telling Rep Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) the judgement he ultimately reached was that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to result in a conviction.

Hur later agreed with Rep. Kevin Kiley (R-Calif.) that Biden could well have been convicted of mishandling documents. “So, a reasonable juror could have voted to convict” Biden?” asked.  “Correct,” Hur answered.

Hur determined that no charges could be brought against Biden because he would be seen by a potential jury as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Biden angrily lashed out at the special counsel’s embarrassing conclusion during the press conference, last month.

“There is even reference that I don’t remember when my son died. 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 damn business!” Biden fumed indignantly.

The transcript of his interview however makes clear that Biden had either lied or couldn’t remember what was said. Biden himself brought up the death of his son Beau several times during the interview, including when failed to remember the year he died.

Hur had asked Biden where he kept documents related to the Biden Institute, the Biden Center, the National Cancer Institute’s “Cancer Moonshot” research project, and his book “Promise Me Dad” while he was living at his house in northern Virginia.

In response, Biden wondered aloud if this would have been in the 2017 and 2018 timeframe, and Hur responded that it would.

Clearly confused, Biden then mistakenly asserted that his son died during that time period, and that he had just left the senate—instead of the vice presidency. He also divulged that former President Barack Obama at the time had advised him not to run for president because he thought Hillary Clinton had a better chance of winning the upcoming election.

“Remember, in this time frame, my son is—either been deployed or is dying,” he told Hur. “And so it was—and by the way, there were still a lot of people at the time when I got out of the Senate that were encouraging me to run in this period, except the President [Barack Obama].”

I’m not—and not a mean thing to say. He just thought that she had a better shot of winning the presidency than I did. And so I hadn’t, I hadn’t, at this point—even though I’m at Penn, 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.

“And so, what was happening though, what month did Beau die? Oh God, May 30,” Biden said, before White House counsel reminded him that Hunter actually died in 2015.

During his presser last month, Biden angrily asserted, “I don’t need anyone—anyone to remind me when he passed away!”

During the hearing, Tuesday, Hur confirmed that the White House pressured him to remove the language regarding Biden’s memory loss prior to the release of the report.
