Special counsel Robert Hur’s alarming report outlining President Joe Biden‘s memory lapses has parallels to former FBI director James Comey‘s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election cycle.
Hur’s report could be a key factor that weakens Biden’s reelection bid, similar to the way Comey’s actions kneecapped Clinton.
The monthslong investigation from the special counsel was originally over Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. But Hur’s 345-page report released Thursday detailed bombshell allegations that Biden could not remember the date of his late son Beau Biden’s death or the years he served as vice president under President Barack Obama.
Although Hur declined to press charges against Biden, he indicated that a jury would judge Biden “as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”
