Biden Brings Up Beau Biden’s Death, Not Special Counsel Hur

(IntegrityTimes.com) – The February 8 release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report sparked many conversations about Biden’s mental acuity. The media has spent years running cover for President Biden’s gaffes and light schedule, but most outlets had no choice but to cover the Hur report and the events that unfolded afterward.

Biden’s recent impromptu press conference undoubtedly made matters worse due to his snappy responses and confusing Mexico with Egypt when referring to Egypt’s president. Media personalities were scrambling in real-time to brush off Biden’s mix-up, but the most egregious portion of Biden’s response was the lie about his son Beau Biden.

During the press conference, Biden attempted to discredit Hur’s report by personally attacking him for allegedly asking about the year that Beau Biden died. Biden angrily asked, “How in the hell dare he raise that?” He continued, saying that he thought to himself that “it wasn’t any of their damn business.” However, NBC News reported on February 14 that Biden was actually the one who brought up his son, according to two of the outlet’s sources. Hur was asking about the period from 2016 to 2018 when he lived in Virginia. At that time, he was working with a ghostwriter on his memoir about Beau Biden’s 2015 death.

The NBC sources said that Biden was able to name the date of his death correctly, but not the year he died. Biden’s allies, including former Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, recently criticized Hur for daring to include what they believed to be unnecessary information. However, Hur chose not to prosecute Biden because of his bad memory, even though he found that he mishandled classified documents. Notably, Biden’s personal attorney wrote a letter to Hur the day before the report was released, objecting to the final draft. Republican lawmakers will have the opportunity to bring more clarity to the investigation when Hur testifies before the House Judiciary Committee on March 12.
