Attorney General Merrick Garland just got some rather bad news.

The House Judiciary Committee is suing the Department of Justice (DOJ) to get the audio tapes from the Biden interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur.

Garland has refused to turn over the audio, saying that the committee should be satisfied with the transcript.

Take Him to Court

Democrats want everyone to believe this is all political by the GOP, but it goes much deeper than that.

Yes, the GOP surely wants those tapes so it can hear how Biden was able to recall details to show mental fitness, but it is also looking for something else.

Did Garland doctor the transcripts to cover for Joe Biden?

The only way that question can be answered is if they can hear that audio while looking at the transcript, which is what Garland does not want to have happen.

The fact he is going to this length to protect that tape tells me there has to be something bad on there for Joe Biden.

The suit states, “This dispute is principally about a frivolous assertion of executive privilege.

“President Biden’s self-serving attempt to shield the audio recording of his interview with the Special Counsel while publicly releasing a transcript of that same interview represents an astonishing effort to expand the scope of executive privilege from a constitutional privilege safeguarding certain substantive communications to an amorphous privilege that can be molded to protect things like voice inflection, tone, and pace of speech.

“That verbal and nonverbal context is quite important here because the Special Counsel relied on the way that President Biden presented himself during their interview — ‘as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory’— when ultimately recommending that President Biden should not be prosecuted for unlawfully retaining and disclosing classified information.”

With the disastrous debate performance that Joe Biden had, I think the American people deserve to know the truth here.
