The White House is weighing whether to release the transcript of President Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur, which could either defuse concerns about Biden’s age or add to them.

The White House has left the door open to releasing the transcript, once it is declassified, after issuing a fierce defense against what they described as “gratuitous” and “politically motivated” passages that characterized Biden as an elderly man with memory problems.

Some Biden allies suggest releasing the transcript could be in the president’s best interest — at least if it provided evidence to counter the most damaging parts of Hur’s report.

One former White House aide said the transcript could “provide a powerful tool to refute the narrative about his age and prove Hur was playing politics with the report.”
