HIDING BIDEN: DOJ Says It Can’t Release Tape of Senile Biden’s Interview Because of ‘Deep Fakes’

The Department of Justice refused to release the audio tape of Joe Biden’s disastrous interview with special counsel Robert Hur because it would allegedly spark numerous ‘deep fakes’ of the senile president.

From The Hill:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) pushed back against the release of audio recordings of President Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur, citing concerns that “deep fakes” could emerge.

DOJ argued, in a Friday night filing, that if the audio were released, it could end up being altered and passed off as an “authentic” recording which would be shared widely. 

“The passage of time and advancements in audio, artificial intelligence, and ‘deep fake’ technologies only amplify concerns about malicious manipulation of audio files,” according to the filing, first obtained by Politico. 

“To be sure, other raw material to create a deepfake of President Biden’s voice is already available, but release of the audio recording presents unique risks: if it were public knowledge that the audio recording has been released, it becomes easier for malicious actors to pass off an altered file as the true recording,” the administration added in the 49-page filing. 

DOJ officials also said the release of the audio “would harm substantial privacy interests.” 

Their argument comes after Biden invoked executive privilege earlier this month to prevent House Republicans from obtaining the recordings of his interview with Hur, who oversaw the investigation into classified documents found in Biden’s private residence and former vice presidential office. A transcript of the interview was released to GOP House members before Hur’s public testimony in March.
