Democrats are supporting President Joe Biden after a report on his handling of classified papers raised concerns regarding his age and mental fitness.

Investigation Outcome

Following the conclusion of the probe into President Biden’s handling of classified documents, it has been determined that he will not face charges. However, the report characterized him as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Criticism from Vice-President Harris

Vice-President Kamala Harris criticized the portrayal of President Biden in the report, describing it as “gratuitous, inaccurate, and inappropriate.” She also accused the prosecutor, Robert Hur, of being “clearly politically motivated.”

Background on Robert Hur

Robert Hur, a Donald Trump appointee who previously served under two conservative judges, led the investigation into Biden’s handling of classified information. His appointment by Attorney General Merrick Garland drew scrutiny amid accusations of political bias.

White House Response

The publicly-released report included a letter from the White House requesting revisions to the characterization of the president’s memory, citing the need for expertise and adherence to the investigation’s scope.

Criticism from Democratic Allies

Democratic lawmakers, including Senator Jeff Merkley and Senator Tina Smith, denounced Hur’s remarks as inappropriate and politicized. They expressed concerns that the investigation veered into unjustified territory.

Recurring Concerns

President Biden’s age and mental capacities have been subjects of scrutiny, particularly amid his re-election campaign. The investigation’s outcome adds to ongoing discussions about his fitness for office.
