‘Confidential’ in name only: Merrick Garland’s delicate decision to release the Hur report

Other Justice Department veterans and Biden allies described the report as “gratuitous,” particularly his remark that challenged Biden’s memory of the timing of his son Beau’s death.

“Mr. Hur seems to have gone beyond the limits of what he can write by adding what appear to be simply unnecessary comments about the president’s age and memory, especially the gratuitously bold assertion about forgetting when his son passed,” said Gene Rossi, a former federal prosecutor.

Jamie Gorelick, a deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton, agreed.

“The language that Hur used, I thought, was remarkable and unfortunate,” Gorelick said. “I think he could have listed his reasons for not recommending a charge or not charging without that kind of gratuitous slam.”

  1. If this report was about Trump, you can be sure Politico would be praising Hur for his bold reporting and releasing of this damning info.
    Meanwhile it's about senile Joe so it must've been a bad call!
