Biden Blocks Release of Interview Audio Recordings Amid Transparency Pledge Doubts

President Biden has made a decision to block the release of audio recordings from his interviews with Special Counsel Robert Hur during the investigation of his mishandling of classified documents, despite promising to be the most transparent administration in U.S. history. The White House’s Ian Sams had previously boasted about Biden not using executive privilege during Hur’s probe, emphasizing that Biden had “nothing to hide.” However, Biden’s assertion of executive privilege now raises questions about whether he does, in fact, have something to hide.

The White House Counsel’s office explained that executive privilege is being asserted to protect the integrity, effectiveness, and independence of the Department of Justice and its law enforcement investigations. Furthermore, they argued that there is no legitimate need for the audio recordings and suggested that executive privilege is being used to prevent them from being used for “partisan political purposes.”

It is speculated that Biden’s decision to withhold the audio recordings stems from concerns over his mental state being further scrutinized by the public. Special Counsel Hur’s report highlighted instances where Biden’s memory appeared to be poor during the interviews, potentially damaging his image as a capable leader.

The House Oversight Committee Chairman and the Trump Campaign spokesman have both criticized Biden’s use of executive privilege, contending that it is an attempt to conceal Biden’s mental decline and politicize a constitutional principle. The House Oversight Committee is moving forward with its investigation despite the White House’s decision.
