NOW: GOP Goes for Biden’s Jugular

( – House Republicans are working to hit Joe Biden where it really hurts as they have subpoenaed records from US Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with the president in the classified documents case after the prosecutor came to damning conclusions in his final report.

Hur’s report declared that Biden should not face any charges even though he mishandled classified papers because he was of an advanced age and had a failing memory.

The House Oversight and House Judiciary Committee chairs, James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), issued a legal demand to the Justice Department on Tuesday.

They are seeking the transcripts, audio recordings, notes, and video footage from Hur’s interrogation of the president, National Review reports.

In their subpoena to Attorney General Merrick Garland, the lawmakers expressed their intent to determine if there were any restrictions or limitations set by the White House or Biden’s personal lawyers concerning foreign payments to the Biden family.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the House GOP lawmakers wrote.

Among the classified materials in question are documents about Ukraine and China.

These countries are notably significant due to Hunter Biden, the President’s son, and his profitable dealings there.

Hunter Biden is slated to give testimony on Wednesday as part of the impeachment inquiry against his father, which centers on Joe Biden’s perceived involvement in his son’s business ventures.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand,” US Rep. Comer said in a statement.

“We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” he added.

National Review stresses that Hur decided against filing criminal charges because of Biden’s old age and deteriorating memory, which could affect a jury’s perception were the president to stand trial for these actions.

“Mr. 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,” the special counsel concluded.

Hur is scheduled to testify publicly before the House Judiciary Committee the following month.
