Biden says ‘my memory is fine,’ disputes special counsel’s report in national address

President Joe Biden in a televised address Thursday evening disputed a special counsel’s claims that he willfully retained classified material at his Delaware home, and that he exhibited poor memory during an investigation of that material.

“My memory has not gotten worse,” Biden told reporters hours after the release of special counsel Robert Hurt’s report. “My memory is fine.”

US President Joe Biden speaks about the Special Counsel report in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House in Washington, DC, on February 8, 2024 in a surprise last-minute addition to his schedule for the day.
