House Holds AG Garland in Contempt for Withholding Biden Interview Audio Amid DOJ Stonewalling

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives made a decision to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress. This came after Garland repeatedly refused to share the audio recording of an interview conducted by former Special Counsel Robert Hur with President Joe Biden. The interview was part of Hur’s investigation into Biden’s handling of classified information during his time in the U.S. Senate and vice presidency.

The written transcript of the interview between Hur and Biden was released shortly after the completion of the Special Counsel investigation. It revealed that Biden was deemed “too old” with a “bad memory” to face charges for the documented felonies in the final report. 


The Department of Justice (DOJ) has been attempting to keep the audio version of the interview hidden from the public since February, with President Biden asserting executive privilege over the audio but not the printed transcript. Some have raised concerns about whether the audio recording has been destroyed.

During a House Rules Committee meeting, Rep. Ralph Norman questioned whether the tapes still exist and expressed concern about the lengths taken to prevent the public from hearing it. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer responded that it is his hope and understanding that the tapes still exist.

Despite the contempt of Congress vote, the DOJ announced that it would not pursue charges against Attorney General Merrick Garland.
