DOJ Refuses to Give Congress Biden’s Recorded Interview with Special Counsel Hur – EVOL

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has refused to give Congress recordings from Democrat President Joe Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur regarding his classified documents mishandling.

In a Thursday statement, Biden’s DOJ said it will not produce the subpoenaed audio recordings to House Republicans.

The federal agency insists that its “cooperation” with the congressional investigation has been “extraordinary.”

House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) had threatened to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress.

The chairmen accuse AG Garland and the DOJ of a repeated failure to produce the audio recordings.

On Thursday, however, the Justice Department argued that it has produced a transcript of Biden’s interview with the special counsel.

In a statement, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte wrote in response:

“If the Committees’ goal is to receive information from the Department in furtherance of your investigations, that goal has been more than met.

“Our cooperation has been extraordinary.”

“The Committees have not responded in kind,” he continued.

“It seems that the more information you receive, the less satisfied you are, and the less justification you have for contempt, the more you rush towards it.”
