Following Biden Report, Trump Seeks Dropping Charges

Former President Donald Trump called upon the Justice Department to drop charges against him regarding alleged retention of classified documents after special counsel Robert Hur reported that President Joe Biden suffered significant memory issues in his report. Hur’s report ultimately did not charge the president

The former president wrote on social media that he was “cooperative” with federal investigators amid allegations that he held sensitive documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate. Trump wrote that “Crooked Joe Biden didn’t.” He said that Biden’s actions were the “opposite, following the usual, corrupt Democrat Playbook.”

The former president said that special counsel Jack Smith, who he called “Deranged” and his “Thugs should immediately drop the totally discredited Documents Hoax against me. A TWO-TIERED SYSTEM OF JUSTICE AND SELECTIVE PROSECUTION!

The former president further wrote on Truth Social that Biden “shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this,” and argued that the president was not “protected by the Presidential Records Act.”

Hur’s report indicated that the president struggled to remember several key elements of his political life. During the interviews regarding the documents case, Biden reportedly could not remember the years in which he was vice president. He also appeared to forget when his son Beau Biden died.

Biden denied having any memory issues during a press conference held after the report’s release. During the same event, Biden appeared to mix up the countries of Egypt and Mexico.

In the last week, Biden has stated that he spoke to former French President Francois Mitterrand and former German Prime Minister Helmut Kohl in 2021. However, both leaders were dead at the time of the supposed conversations.

Hur’s report concluded that if taken to 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 and press conference brought a flurry of criticism for the president, including calls to transfer authority to Vice President Kamala Harris.
