Presidential elections are going to be held in America in a few months. In such a situation, all the candidates are trying their best to win. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden has got a big relief. Thursday's report acquitted Biden of any wrongdoing in the misuse of classified documents. However, portraying the Democrat as a well-intentioned old man with a failing memory created a stir in the political circles.
Legal crisis looming over Biden is over
Biden wants to contest elections again against Donald Trump. After this report came out, the legal crisis looming over Biden has gone away. Ultimately he will be able to contest elections. Trump, on the other hand, is facing criminal charges for deleting large amounts of classified documents after being ousted from the White House and refusing to cooperate with investigators.
Don't remember the date of son's death
However, portraying Biden as old and having a weak memory is a blow to his campaign. Lawyer Robert Hur said the president was found to have such impaired mental abilities that he could not even remember the dates of his tenure as vice president in Barack Obama's administration and the death of his son Beau from cancer in 2015.
unfit for presidency
At the same time, Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson and other top Republican leaders called the report disturbing and said that it showed that Biden was unfit for the presidency. "A person who has been held accountable for the misuse of classified information is certainly unfit for the Oval Office," he said.
Biden happy with the report
Referring to the report at the Democratic Party meeting, Joe Biden said that he was happy to see that the report came to the conclusion that no allegations should be made against him. The US president said the investigation found he had fully cooperated with Trump against his refusal to turn over top secret documents and obstruction of justice. The President further said that he had given permission for a five-hour interview to the special counsel on October 8 and 9.
Biden said, 'This matter is now closed.' He did not comment on the comments made about his memory.
