Attorney General Merrick Garland shut down a reporter questioning if he should’ve edited language describing President Biden’s memory in Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report, calling that suggestion “absurd.”

NBC correspondent Ken Dilanian asked Garland about the criticism he’s faced from the White House over how the former special counsel described Biden’s faltering memory in his report looking into the president’s handling of classified documents. White House sources were reportedly upset that Garland did not “demand edits” of the portions describing Biden as an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

Dilanian asked Garland if he felt Hur’s language describing Biden’s mental state was “appropriate.”

The DOJ official defended the report, and said the idea that he should’ve censored the report was “absurd.”
