Turns Out Biden Lied About Hur, Beau, And Why He Pilfered Classified Documents

president biden standing in his plane;interview with robert hur

One of the big takeaways from the newly released transcript of President Joe Biden’s two-day interview with Robert Hur is that the special counsel was being exceedingly generous when describing the president as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Much of the conversation with Hur is littered with barely incoherent answers and spiraling word salads. Though, the reader is occasionally entertained by Biden’s blowhard-y non sequiturs. We learn about Biden’s Corvette — twice. We learn that the president is a frustrated architect but an excellent archer. Biden even jokes that there might be risque pictures of First Lady Dr. Jill Biden.

Then again, the fact that the entire two-day interview isn’t a giant nonsensical rant is not as impressive as his defenders might believe. The president is, indeed, completely coherent at times. And those are the times he’s probably lying.

When Hur released his report last month, for example, it noted that Biden couldn’t recall the year his son died. This is not the kind of event that typically slips a healthy person’s mind — not even one who is constantly trying to emotionally manipulate the public with misleading claims about the cause of his son’s death.

Recall that Biden feigned great anger about this interaction. “There’s even a reference that I don’t remember when my son died,” he barked at reporters when the report was released. “How in the hell dare he raise that? Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself: It wasn’t any of their damn business.”

The transcript shows that it was Biden who brought up his late son Beau, not Hur. The president claimed he believed Beau had died in 2017 or 2018 when he had tragically died of brain cancer in 2015.

Who knows? Maybe Biden forgot what he said? Reading the full context of his answer, and considering the president’s lifelong fabulism, it is not entirely out of the question that the president purposely floated the wrong date to try and justify his pilfering of classified documents. Either way, it’s bad.

More importantly, Biden also contradicted himself when speaking about the documents themselves.

When Hur asked the president about the classified papers in his possession, the president contended that he “had no purpose for them, and I think it would be inappropriate for me to keep clearly classified documents.” But Hur, in his prepared testimony for Congress, says: “We also identified other recorded conversations during which Mr. Biden read classified information aloud to his ghostwriter.”

So, the documents did have a very specific purpose. Those files were used, according to Amtrak Joe, to help earn $8 million writing a book after leaving the Obama administration.

Yet, when the Hur report was released, the left wing did what they always do when confronted with bad news: They feigned a meltdown. They smeared the messenger. They concoct conspiracy theories. They denied reality. They’re doing the same right now.

The media continues to frame Hur’s findings as an exoneration of Biden to head off the (correct) perception that there is a stark, selective prosecution when it comes to the hoarding of classified documents. Donald Trump, yes. Biden and Hillary Clinton, no.

In The New York Times, Charlie Savage begins the paper’s story on the leaked transcripts by misleading readers with the contention that Hur had found “insufficient evidence to charge Mr. Biden.” This is not true. Hur’s report concluded that Biden came off as too feeble-minded to be convicted by a jury for his decades-long mishandling of classified information. According to the special counsel, the president had “willfully retained classified information.” And he had done it for years before winning the presidency.

During today’s hearing, Democrats falsely used the word “exoneration” a number of times. Hur noted that the word “does not appear anywhere in my report, and that is not my conclusion.”

Let me get this straight: Biden’s too feeble-minded to be prosecuted but he’s not too feeble-minded to be president? How does that work? If he’s too feeble-minded to be prosecuted, he has no business being president. It sounds like someone’s trying to have it both ways.

I recently heard audio of, I believe, biden talking to the ghostwriter about the documents. Biden said, in a hushed voice, something like, “I’m not even supposed to have them.”
During Hur’s testimony in front of Congress, one of the Democrat Squad members talked over Hur, saying biden had been exonerated, while Hur was trying to emphasize that Biden had NOT been exonerated. They are so dishonest and disrespectful.
This country has sunk so low that I think we’re getting closer to not being to settle the score with elections. Anger and disappointment are at their peak, and I fear for the safety of our citizens when people start meting out their own kind of justice. We desperately need to return to a country based on the rule of law and the Constitution as the blueprint for how we run this nation.

Gee, big surprise a politician that is known as a serial liar his entire political career is caught lying yet again. Big surprise NOT!!! That the American people continue to tolerate all this used to be shocking. Now it just demonstrates how little will the American public has to force change from career politicians who fear no blowback for the public.

I feel nothing but sorrow and pity for this man, but I feel outrage at those that are allowing this to continue and who use him to do their destructive work (and the MSM to lie about it). It seems that nothing can be done about it. Executive orders made to allow illegals to vote and also be counted in the census so they can change the outcome of the future elections. They will never let Trump win. They can’t win fairly, so they do what is necessary to make the outcome in favor of their candidate. The world is laughing at us and at Biden especially. How did this happen? How and why did we become so corrupt and immoral? May God have mercy on us.

Seems like prison would be a cost effective place for the ultra corrupt and overtly perverse faux President to spend the winter of his life. Since he would require Secret Service protection up close and personal, that might also serve as a method of punishment for those Feds that have been complicit in covering up the many indelicate crimes of this demonic old douche bag.

Biden claims he’s not feeble minded and resents the report characterizing him that way. I say, OK, then lets put him on trial since that is ultimately what he is saying.

President Biden is guilty of a significant national security breech. With his illicit “earnings” in the background, there is lots of reason to ponder his motives for illegally moving these classified documents to his own dwelling/facilities. ANYONE who works in defense would have been fired, arrested, tried, convicted and jailed for doing the same.
Another who has been even more audacious in security breeches is Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, for having conducted her State Department business over personal email… which left us no need to wonder how our much-more-valuable and revered Seal Team 6 was unexpectedly shot down in the Afghan mountains, or how the vulnerabilities of our embassy in Benghazi became known. She was never held accountable for those outcomes. Before that, her Whitewater crimes were also swept under the carpet.
Of course, the worst in all of this is the many chapters of what we have yet to become aware of.

Regarding the headlines of this story: I read this and thought I can’t pass this opportunity up to say, Biden has been lying about many, many things over the course of many, many years. I could almost bet that he was a liar as a young boy. And I keep saying how did he get his beach house? Well, of course, he got the kickbacks from Ukraine, China. What is he going to do now if Congress doesn’t vote for funds going to Ukraine?, well he will have to live within his means, meaning his salary, social security, book deals, etc., and not get the slush fund from the American taxpayers that are kickbacks from Ukraine & China. I would really like to see an accounting of where the taxpayer money has gone & to whom, dollar for dollar.

I would like to see more surface on the fact that Biden did not have ANY legal right to the documents that he had in his possession as they were collected (and stolen from secure review sites as I recall) when he was a Senator and a Vice President. It is my understanding that only a President may retain some unclassified documents after he is no longer in office.

These days we cannot believe a single word that comes out of the government. And I mean ALL branches and subdivisions. Nor can we believe most of what is spewed out like vomit from the MSM. There is too much information to the contrary coming from whistleblowers and scientists who have been censored consistently to keep the truth from coming out.

I am so tired of seeing articles like this. Biden’s a liar plain and simple. If anyone doesn’t see this fact, they are as feeble minded as he is. Let’s stop pretending to see the news flash that says he might have lied about something.

I will be discussing here the extreme abuse within my family.

I will protect my son Donald J Trump VI and grandson Donald J Trump VII from anybody who would try to abuse them.

My father Donald J Trump IV was a loudmouth who screamed at me frequently but at least he didn’t hit me.

My grandfather Donald J Trump III was a physical and mental abuser and beat me and my father.

My great grandfather Donald J Trump Jr was even worse. He abused his family and others and committed crimes on an international scale.

My great great grandfather Donald J Trump was not only the worst person in my family but the worst person in American history. He cheated his way to the presidency with the help of Russia in 2016. His presidency was a disaster in every way. He then lost the 2020 election but denied that he ever lost and led an insurrection. Then he was elected to a second term in 2024 with the help of massive cheating. He was an even worse president the second time around. He tried to stop the 2028 election and declared himself president for life. He refused to leave the White House on January 20, 2029 and was dragged out by secret service agents. I’m ashamed to be his great great grandson.

My great great great grandfather Fred Trump has a really horrible legacy too.
