Is your memory still that hazy, Joe? Biden tore into special counsel Robert Hur for ‘daring’ to bring up his late son Beau, even though HE asked about it

It was President Joe Biden who brought up the time of his son Beau’s death and botched the year during his interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur, according to a new report following White House fury over the ‘gratuitous’ detail.

Hur included discussion of Beau’s death in his bombshell 345-page report as one of multiple examples of Biden’s ‘hazy’ memory, inviting a fiery response from the president during his angry press conference last Thursday. 

‘How in the hell dare he raise that?’ Biden fumed at the White House. ‘Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself: it wasn’t any of their damn business.’ 

Now, two people familiar with Hur’s five-hour interview with Biden over Oct. 8 and Oct. 9 say it was Biden who brought up Beau’s death, NBC reported. 

Prosecutors were peppering Biden with questions about a Virginia home he rented from 2016 to 2018 which was among multiple facilities where classified information was uncovered.

It was one of the facilities where Biden stored classified notebooks in ‘unsecured and unauthorized spaces.’ He also used the home to meet with his ghostwriter while working on his memoir, Promise Me Dad, which recounts the devastating loss of his son to brain cancer in 2015. 

Investigators wanted to know about a recording they obtained of Biden telling the writer he had found ‘classified stuff’ in the home.

Biden evidently began reaching for key markers from the period while trying to recall the information, ‘and it was at that point in the interview that he appeared confused about when Beau had died,’ according to the report, which notes that he got the date of Beau’s death, May 30, correctly.

First lady Jill Biden also blasted the information as exploiting ‘our son’s death to score political points.’ The White House blasted ‘gratuitous’ information in the report.

The exact nature of how the conversation played out is memorialized in a transcript and recordings of Biden’s interview, which he noted came as the White House was scrambling to respond to the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel.

House Republican committee chairmen are demanding access to the information. The White House says its counsel’s office would ‘look’ at the request. House Republicans also want to call Hur to testify, setting up what could be weeks of back and forth over the report, even as Biden seeks reelection while contending with polls that show widespread voter concern about his age.

The report, which spelled out the reasons Biden would not be charged and called him an ‘elderly’ man with a diminished memory, makes repeated references to the Virginia property.

‘Evidence suggests that, while researching and writing the book, Mr. Biden found marked classified documents in the basement of his rental home in Virginia and told his ghostwriter about it during an audio-recorded conversation. And while the published book is not known to contain classified information, while writing the book in unsecure locations, Mr. Biden used notebooks containing notes he took during his vice presidency about classified meetings and information,’ it said.
