Watters Argues DOJ Has ‘5-hour Tape That Would End’ Biden’s Re-Election Effort

During a Tuesday broadcast of his Fox News show, host Jesse Watters argued that recordings of President Joe Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur are akin to “blackmail tapes,” asserting that the federal government now had leverage to use against Biden “at any time.”

In his report on the investigation into Biden’s illegal retention of classified documents from his time as a senator and vice president, Hur explained that the president has “limited memory” and alluded to severe cognitive decline — confirming that Biden had committed crimes but would not be prosecuted due to his mental health.

Watters commented on this report on Tuesday, questioning whether or not the Department of Justice (DOJ) now has the ability to blackmail Biden with potentially tanking his re-election using the recordings.


“Biden’s DOJ has a five-hour tape that would end Biden’s re-election campaign,” he captioned the monologue shared on X, formerly known as Twitter. “That tape’s now being leveraged over the president and can be used against him at any time. Not only is he compromised by the Chinese– he’s now subject to blackmail by his own administration. Worst of all– Biden’s base is now breaking off into factions, which is fatal to political power.”

Watters went on to cite statements in the report about Biden being unable to recall when his son, Beau Biden, passed away or his time as vice president, noting: “These limitations were so significant Biden wasn’t charged because the jury would take pity on him.”

“These tapes are blackmail tapes. If they’re released, Biden’s re-election campaign is finished,” he added.

The Fox News host then played clips of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre desperately trying to defend her boss against allegations about his cognitive decline, where she claimed: “The president proves every day how he operates, how he thinks — right? — by dealing with world leaders, by making really difficult decisions on behalf of the — American people, whether it’s domestic, whether it’s national security. And so, he shows it every day on how he thinks, how he operates.”

Watters noted that the White House has thus far refused to allow Biden’s physician to release a statement on his cognitive faculties, questioning: “So if the public can’t see the tapes, will Joe Biden take a cognitive test?”


“Instead they’re relying on propaganda from allies to tell you not to believe what you see and hear with your own eyes and ears,” he argued regarding the Biden administration.

“The president isn’t assuring the nation that he’s equipped for four more years,” Watters concluded.

Meanwhile, the chairmen of the House Oversight Committee, House Judiciary Committee and House Ways and Means Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday demanding the full transcript of Biden’s interview with prosecutors,” as well as “any other records of this interview, including, but not limited to, any recordings, notes, or summaries of the interview” that was conducted during the investigation.
