HAND IT OVER: Judiciary, Oversight Committees Subpoena DOJ for Biden-Hur Transcript

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.27.24

House committee chairs have subpoenaed the transcript of President Joe Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur after the DOJ ignored previous requests for the transcript.

House Oversight Chair James Comer, Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan, and Ways and Means Chair Jason Smith wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The committees previously requested that the DOJ provide the transcript by Feb. 19 at 5 p.m., but the department did not do so.

“The Oversight and Judiciary Committees, in coordination with the Ways and Means Committee, are investigating whether sufficient grounds exist to draft articles of impeachment against President Biden for consideration by the full House,” the letter states. “The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments.”

House Republicans are no doubt interested in the details of the transcript after Hur’s report declared President Biden an “elderly man with a poor memory.” Biden forgot many details form his own life over the course of the interview with the special counsel, including when his son Beau died.

From The Daily Caller:

The White House said Hur’s characterizations of Biden were “gratuitous” and unnecessary, and disputed their accuracy. Critics responded by calling for the release of the transcript, claiming that doing so would prove the White House correct. However, an attorney for Biden previously refused to say whether he supported releasing the transcript and recordings of the interview.

The FBI previously uncovered documents relating to U.S. foreign policy in Afghanistan and handwritten notebook entries concerning sensitive national security matters at Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, estate. Hur cited the DOJ policy on prosecuting a president to justify his decision not to press charges against Biden.

Biden gave a rare press conference following the release of the special counsel report to dispel concerns about his age, but in doing so deflected blame to his staff for the classified documents scandal. He also mixed up the presidents of Egypt and Mexico.
