WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Merrick Garland says releasing audio of a special counsel’s interview with President Joe Biden over his handling of classified documents could jeopardize future sensitive and high-profile investigations.

The White House has blocked the release of the audio, arguing Republicans in Congress only want the recordings “to chop them up” and use them for political purposes as the Democratic president seeks reelection.

Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson on Thursday accused Biden of suppressing the tape because he’s afraid to have voters hear it during an election year.

A transcript of the interview shows Biden struggling to recall some dates and occasionally confusing some details but having deep recall in other areas.
