Recent reports indicate that Joe Biden had a meltdown regarding the findings of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into the president’s mishandling of classified documents. Biden responded to the report’s claims, appearing visibly angry while maintaining that he is fit to serve as President of the United States.
The special counsel report uncovered evidence that President Biden knowingly mishandled highly classified material as a private citizen, some of which included documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan. The report concluded that Biden had significant issues with his mental acuity, even suggesting he had lapses in memory about the day his son Beau died.
The special counsel ultimately decided not to prosecute Biden, stating there was insufficient evidence to take the case to trial. Furthermore, the report partly cited Biden’s memory and elderly age as a reason to take further legal action.
“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” the report states. “Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt.”
The president addressed the report last week, slamming the allegations made on his mental health. According to anonymous sources, the President offered a more profane rebuttal behind closed doors during a private meeting with House Democrats. “How the f— could I forget the day my son died? Of course, I remember everything,” Biden allegedly said.
“There’s even reference that I don’t remember when my son died. How in the hell dare he raise that. Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself: ‘wasn’t any of their damn business,’” Biden stated on Thursday. “Frankly, when I was asked a question I talked to myself was it any of their damn business?”
Biden proceeded to present a rosary that Beau gave him that he wears on his wrist. Ironically, the president appeared to have trouble recalling which church it was from. However, some have given him the benefit of the doubt that he could have possibly been overcome with emotions.
“Let me tell you something. Some of you have come in I wear since the day he died every single day the rosary he got from Our Lady of… Every Memorial Day we hold a service remembered him attended by friends and family and the people will love to. I don’t need anyone. I don’t need anyone to remind me when he passed away. 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 a national crisis. Their task was to make a decision about whether to move forward with charges in this case. That’s their decision to make. That’s a council’s decision to make that’s his job,” Biden continued.
While Biden may not face legal charges amid the findings of the special counsel report, many have speculated there could be significant political consequences as the report confirms the concerns of many voters surrounding Biden’s mental capacity.
