Special Counsel Robert Hur is scheduled to testify before Congress regarding his investigation into President Biden's handling of classified records after months of scrutiny.

Hur will appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday at 10 a.m. to discuss his report released in February, which did not recommend criminal charges against Biden for retaining and mishandling classified documents. He clarified that even if Biden were not in office, he would not face charges.

The classified records in question contained information on military and foreign policy matters in countries like Afghanistan, as well as other national security and foreign policy-related documents that Hur stated could compromise sensitive intelligence sources and methods.

Although Hur did not advise charges against the president, he did describe Biden as an "elderly man with a poor memory," a characterization that has sparked concerns for Biden's potential 2024 re-election campaign.

Biden has strongly refuted Hur's claims, asserting that his memory is intact and that he is the most qualified individual to serve as president. He also criticized Hur for insinuating that he could not recall when his son Beau passed away.

In his report, Hur mentioned Biden's difficulty in remembering key events, such as Beau's death. However, sources familiar with the investigation revealed that it was Biden who brought up the topic during the interview, not Hur.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, and House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith have demanded the Justice Department provide transcripts and recordings of Biden's interview, as they lead the impeachment inquiry against him. Despite a subpoena, the Justice Department has not yet handed over these materials.

The Department emphasized the need for cooperation and expressed disappointment in the premature subpoena, citing ongoing efforts to respond to congressional requests promptly.

Comer emphasized the importance of accessing these documents to investigate if Biden's retention of sensitive materials influenced his family's business dealings. Jordan, Comer, and Smith are concerned that Biden may have kept sensitive documents related to his family's foreign business dealings with specific countries.
