On November 1, 2017, Hur was nominated by President Donald Trump to be the next United States Attorney for the District of Maryland.

Hur has made donations to the campaigns of a number of Republican political candidates.

Hur, a Republican, served as U.S. attorney of Maryland from 2018 to 2021, after being appointed by former President Donald Trump’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions. He previously clerked for two well-known conservative judges, including archconservative Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist.

Thats a valid point and yet not entirely true.

NeoConism has devoured both sides of the aisle.
But yes, many like Cheney fled to Biden and the Dems.

The question is why he was putting those comments in a legal statement.  He isn't a doctor, and is unqualified to make a diagnosis regarding Biden. It was inappropriate.

A proper legal statement only contains factual information; it doesn't contain Hur's personal beliefs regarding Biden.

Maybe it was the only reason he could come up with to not prosecute Biden?

The problem with Trump was that he wouldn't have been prosecuted if he had just handed them over.  Outgoing presidents, and vice presidents usually don't do their own packing.  That is even true for Trump. 

The National Archives told Trump that there were missing documents, and to hand them over.  He refused, and told them that the classified documents were party favors that he gets to keep and show off to his friends.  All he had to do was hand them over, and none of this would have happened.

The Biden situation was a little different.  When cleaning out a closet, aides found a small number of documents.  Biden immediately informed the National Archives, had them take possession of the documents, and cooperated fully with the investigation.

It is interesting that no charges were brought against Mike Pence (and the documents were in his house), and no questions were asked regarding his mental acuity.

The same thing happened with Mike Pence, with the same end result:

DOJ closes Pence classified documents investigation with no charges

The Justice Department's national security division, which looked into the discovery of classified documents at the former vice president's Indiana home, informed his attorney that no charges will be filed.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/doj-cl ... -rcna87396

Former Vice President Mike Pence will not be charged in the discovery of classified documents at his Indiana home, according to a letter obtained by NBC News.On Thursday, the Justice Department's national security division informed Pence’s attorney that it had closed its investigation and that based on the “results” of that probe, no charges will be filed against the former vice president. Pence was interviewed as part of the DOJ's investigation, along with several aides, according to a source familiar with the matter.

 Earlier this year, Pence’s lawyers said that a “small number” of classified materials had been found at the former vice president’s home in Indiana after the FBI discovered classified records were initially discovered at a Washington think tank President Joe Biden used after he was vice president. The FBI later conducted a five-hour voluntary search of Pence’s home, and uncovered another classified document. In the case of Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland named a special counsel — former Justice Department attorney Robert Hur — to lead that investigation, but no special counsel was named in Pence’s case.

Then what was the reason that Mike Pence was neither investigated or prosecuted.  Pence was an outgoing vice-president caught with classified documents in his home.

All the more reason for the charges against Trump to be dismissed immediately.
