Attorney General Merrick Garland vowed Wednesday that President Biden has "no impairment" after being pressed by a Republican lawmaker about the findings of special counsel Robert Hur’s report on Biden’s improper handling of classified documents.

Garland, speaking to Rep. Ben Cline of Virginia during a House Appropriations Committee hearing on the Justice Department’s Fiscal Year 2025 budget request, said "I have seen the president effectively guide the members of the Department of his Cabinet and his military."

Garland declined to comment when asked by Cline if he agreed with Hur’s characterization that Biden is a "sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory," saying "I've said before, and I'll say again with respect to the report that it's improper for the attorney general to editorialize."

"The president has no impairment. I don't know how many ways I can say this. I have complete confidence in the president and I reject your characterization," Garland also said.
