The White House Counsel has requested revisions to the language used in a special counsel’s report concerning President Joe Biden’s memory. Robert Hur’s report, which included classified information, touched on various aspects of President Biden’s tenure. 

Among the points raised was the issue of the President’s memory. The report suggested that President Biden “appeared to have significant limitations,” leading Hur to believe a jury might see Mr. Biden as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” 

The White House Counsel’s office opposed the language used in the report, going so far as to label it “inflammatory.” They also demanded a review and revision of the report’s descriptions of his memory.

Hur discovered that President Biden had difficulty recalling events from 2017 when he recorded conversations with ghostwriter Mark Zwonitzer. However, in a more recent interview with Hur’s office, Biden’s memory was reportedly even worse.

“He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (‘If it was 2013 — when did I stop being Vice President?’), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (‘in 2009, am I still Vice President?’),” the report read. 

“He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died. And his memory appeared hazy when he described the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him. Among other things, he mistakenly said he ‘had a real difference’ of opinion with General Karl Eikenberry, when, in fact, Eikenberry was an ally whom Mr. Biden cited approvingly in his Thanksgiving memo to President Obama,” it added.

At a news conference, President Biden addressed Hur’s statements. He specifically took issue with the claim that he couldn’t remember when his son passed away.

“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,” Biden said. “I don’t need anyone to remind me when he passed away,” he stated. “The simple truth is, I sat for a five-hour interview over two days of events going back 40 years. At the same time, I was managing an international crisis,” Biden said, referencing Hamas’ October 7, 2023 attack on Israel.

He also defended his memory to a reporter who raised Hur’s assertions. “I’m well-meaning, and I’m an elderly man, and I know what the hell I’m doing. I’ve been President, and I put this country back on its feet. I don’t need his recommendation,” he defended.

Richard Sauber, special counsel to the President in the White House counsel’s office, also berated Hur for his report. “It is one thing to observe President Biden’s memory as being ‘significantly limited’ on certain subjects. It is quite another to use the more sweeping and highly prejudicial language employed later in the report,” they wrote.

The office also called for the report to be modified. “This language is not supported by the facts, nor is it appropriately used by a federal prosecutor in this context. We request that you revisit your descriptions of President Biden’s memory and revise them so that they are stated in a manner that is within the bounds of your expertise and remit,” the office wrote.
