Federal Prosecutor on Biden’s Classified Files Stirs Up His Aging Issue

It was NBC News that reported first, in the evening of Feb. 8, that the prosecutor investigating President Joe Biden’s removal and retention of classified files, when leaving office as Vice President, had refused to bring charges against an “elderly man with a poor memory.” Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur wrote in his final report, in deciding not to bring any charges against Biden: “Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency, when he was a private citizen.” But, in what was virtually a Mad Magazine-type parody, Hur decided that Biden was, or at least appeared, too feeble and forgetful to prosecute successfully. “Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur claimed to have assessed. So, deciding that against a pathetic old bungler, he could not prove anything to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt, he brought no charges.
