The White House says it is “pleased” by the Justice Department’s decision to not charge Joe Biden over keeping classified documents, but criticized what it called inappropriate comments in the report.
“We disagree with a number of inaccurate and inappropriate comments in the Special Counsel’s report,” Biden’s White House lawyer Richard Sauber says in a statement, after Biden was described as coming across as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”
Letter from Sauber and Bauer to Hur: "We do not believe that the report's treatment of President Biden's memory is accurate or appropriate. The report uses highly prejudicial language to describe a commonplace occurrence among witnesses: a lack ofrecall of years-old events." pic.twitter.com/H5VtckC5ux
