Robert Hur Testifies on Biden’s Memory and Classified Documents Case

In a recent Capitol Hill testimony, Robert Hur, the former special counsel, defended his report’s focus on U.S. President Joe Biden’s memory lapses during the investigation into the mishandling of classified materials. Hur’s report concluded there was insufficient evidence to charge Biden, describing him as a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.” The White House released a memo highlighting this finding. Republicans criticized Biden’s handling of classified information, suggesting financial motives linked to his book deal, while Democrats pointed to a stark contrast between Biden’s cooperation and former President Trump’s obstruction in their respective investigations. The video also discussed the public’s perception of Biden’s age and vitality following his State of the Union address.
