Report: Biden Brought Up Son Beau in Interview, Not Hur

By    |   Wednesday, 14 February 2024 10:42 PM EST

President Joe Biden was noticeably agitated last week over special counsel Robert Hur's wording in the classified documents report saying that Biden "did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died." 

During Biden's remarks on Feb. 8 about the report, the president said, "There's even a reference that I don't remember when my son died. How in the h*** dare he raise that? Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself, it wasn't any of their damn business."

Yet, NBC News reported that it was the president that brought Beau Biden into the conversation, and not Robert Hur.

According to people with knowledge of the five-hour long interview, Biden mentioned his son's death after being asked about his workflow at a Virginia rental home between 2016 and 2018. During that time, a ghostwriter was assisting him in the writing of a memoir about losing Beau to brain cancer in 2015.

Hur's report on Biden's mishandling of classified documents said that although the president "willfully detained and disclosed classified materials," the president's impaired memory would be so obvious that no jury would convict him.

First lady Jill Biden seized on the moment and mentioned Beau in a recent donor email, saying, "Believe me, like anyone who has lost a child, Beau and his death never leave him. I hope you can imagine how it felt to read that attack — not just as Joe's wife, but as Beau's mother."

The fallout from Hur's epic interview with the president has become so contentious that both parties are pushing the White House to release the full transcript so that the full picture, void of any partisan interpretation, can be revealed.
