    President Biden is using executive privilege to block House Republicans from obtaining audio recordings of his interviews with special counsel Robert Hur regarding his handling of classified documents.

    As The Hill reports:

    Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday requested Biden assert executive privilege over the recordings, which had been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees.

    “Because of the President’s longstanding commitment to protecting the integrity, effectiveness, and independence of the Department of Justice and its law enforcement investigations, he has decided to assert executive privilege over the recordings,” White House counsel Ed Siskel wrote in a letter obtained by The Hill.

    While Hur’s report 345-page concluded no charges should be brought against the president, its descriptions of Biden’s memory lapses and the description of the president as a well-meaning, elderly man” set off a political firestorm. 

    Hur cited Biden’s 2017 conversations with ghostwriter Mark Zwonitzer, which Hur described as “painfully slow, with Mr. Biden struggling to remember events and straining at times to read and relay his own notebook entries.”

    In a potential effort to address concerns about Biden’s mental sharpness, Vice President Kamala Harris informed The Wall Street Journal, shortly after the report’s release, that she is prepared to assume the presidency.

    1. Biden is bad enough … Harris would be a complete disaster. She thinks she can giggle her way out if she has no clue how to answer a question.

    2. For Executive Privilege to apply, the communications must be in his role as President. The special counselor was supposed to be investigating possible mishandling of classified documents where Biden was the suspect. The documents were allegedly mishandled before Biden ran for President.

      Therefore, the claim of Executive privilege is absurd on its face. If he talked to the Special Counselor investigating him in in his role as President, that alone is interfering with the investigation.

      The mere mention of Executive privilege in this case is a confession to criminal activity.
