House Republicans subpoenaed Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday for records related to special counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s handling of classified documents. 

The subpoena seeks documents, transcripts and audio recordings from Biden’s interview with Hur.

That interview helped Hur create a report that alleged Biden was “a well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Republicans believe the tapes will demonstrate that Biden is unfit to be president. 

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: There’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Oh., wrote in a press release.

Lawyers for Biden and the White House vehemently objected to the report, saying Hur’s comments “openly, obviously, and blatantly violate Department policy and practice.”
