Biden says he never meant to keep classified documents. Hur stands by report on president’s memory

March 12, 2024

Hur, in his report, concluded that Biden should not face criminal charges over his mishandling of documents but also impugned the president’s age and competence. The special counsel stood by his assessment of the president’s memory as “accurate and fair,” in prepared testimony to be delivered to Congress. Joe Biden failed to properly secure classified information and Joe Biden shared classified information with people he wasn’t supposed to. In his interviews, Biden repeatedly told prosecutors that he did not know how classified documents ended up at his home and former Penn Biden Center office in Washington. Trump was hyping Tuesday’s “Big day in Congress for the Biden Documents Hoax,” while mischaracterizing his conduct.
