Special Counsel Robert Hur is expected to testify on Capitol Hill about his findings following months of investigating President Biden’s mishandling of classified records. Hur will testify publicly at the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday at 10 a.m.

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

The records in question included classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan and other countries, as well as records related to national security and foreign policy that implicated “sensitive intelligence sources and methods,” according to Hur.

Although Hur did not recommend any charges against the president, he described Biden as a “sympathetic, well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory” – a characterization that has raised concerns for Biden’s 2024 re-election campaign.

Biden has criticized Hur since the release of the report, asserting that his “memory is fine” and that he is the “most qualified person in this country to be president.” Biden also pushed back against Hur for suggesting he did not remember when his son Beau died, calling it inappropriate.

In his report, Hur wrote that Biden did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died. However, two sources familiar with the investigation said it was Biden who brought up Beau’s death in the interview – not the special counsel.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, and House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith have demanded that the Justice Department turn over the transcript and any recordings of Biden’s interview.

The three committee leaders are leading the impeachment inquiry against Biden and subpoenaed the materials last month. Despite the subpoena compelling their production by March 7, the Justice Department has not turned over transcripts or audio recordings of Hur’s interview with the president, according to a House Judiciary spokesman.
