Watch Live: Special Counsel Hur Testifies Over Biden Classified Docs, Cognitive Decline

Former Special Counsel Robert Hur, who led the Biden classified documents probe – and concluded that the president is too cognitively gone to face prosecution – began testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee today at 10 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office building.

Hur ignored reporters’ questions as he made his way into the hearing room, where – according to his prepared remarks, told the committee that his “report reflects my best effort to explain why I declined to recommend charging President Biden” for his mishandling of classified records.”

My assessment in the report about the relevance of the President’s memory was necessary and accurate and fair,” Hur wrote in a copy of his remarks obtained by Fox News. “Most importantly, what I wrote is what I believe the evidence shows, and what I expect jurors would perceive and believe. I did not sanitize my explanation. Nor did I disparage the President unfairly. I explained to the Attorney General my decision and the reasons for it. That’s what I was required to do.

Watch:

Former President Trump, meanwhile, claimed on Tuesday that the DOJ gave Biden a “free pass” on his handling of classified documents.

“Big day in Congress for the Biden Documents Hoax,” Trump said on Truth Social. “He had many times more documents, including classified documents, than I, or any other president, had. He had them all over the place, with ZERO supervision or security. He does NOT come under the Presidential Records Act, I DO.”

The DOJ gave Biden, and virtually every other person and President, a free pass. Me, I’m still fighting!!!” Trump added.

Hur, who released his report to the public in February, did not recommend criminal charges against Biden for mishandling and retaining classified documents and stated that he wouldn’t bring charges against Biden even if he were not in the Oval Office.

Trump, on the other hand, was charged out of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation related to his retention of classified materials. Trump pleaded not guilty to all 37 felony charges out of Smith’s probe. The charges include willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice and false statements. –Fox News
