It Sure Looks Likes Joe Biden Lied to the Special Counsel About His Political Origin Story

Did Joe Biden lie to then-Special Counsel Robert Hur about a long-proclaimed political origin story? According to a new report, it sure looks like it. 

In October of 2023, while being questioned by Hur about his illegal taking and storing of classified documents, the president decided to explain the one time he's "ever lied." Biden claimed that, as a young lawyer, he once defended a construction company against a worker who "lost part of his penis and one of his testicles."

As the tale goes, the president was so great at his job that he wrote a "memo" that got the case thrown out. He then supposedly felt so guilty that he turned to a life of public service, not for the power, fame, and fortune but to help the little guy.

Fresh out of law school and working as a clerk at a high-powered Wilmington, Delaware, law firm, Biden, in his telling, was tapped to defend a construction company sued by a 23-year-old welder who "lost part of his penis and one of his testicles" to a fire that broke out when he was working inside a chimney at a Delaware City plant. Thanks to Biden’s shrewd legal defense on the construction company’s behalf, the injured man lost the case.

"I wrote this memo. And son of a b—, it prevailed," Biden told Hur on Oct. 8. "And I looked over at that kid…and I thought, ‘son of a b—, I’m in the wrong business, I'm not made for this.’"

Biden said he was so wracked with guilt that he concocted an excuse to avoid a celebratory lunch with one of the firm’s named partners and walked into the public defender’s office to ask for a job that very day. It’s "the only time I ever lied," Biden told Hur on Oct. 8.

One can't help but laugh at Biden's proclamation that the above incident is the only time he's ever lied in his entire life. The president's career has been marked by the repetition of numerous falsehoods, to the point where there are too many to count.

So what's the problem with this specific story? Per the Free Beacon's investigation, it "almost certainly" isn't true. 

But this story is almost certainly a complete work of fiction.

Although Biden did work at a law firm tapped to defend a construction company in a negligence suit like the one he described to Hur, the case concluded in 1968, while Biden was still in law school. And the welder won, walking away with $315,000, more than $2.8 million in 2024 dollars.

Biden has been telling that story for decades, and there's ample evidence he's been lying this entire time. The president appears to have inserted himself into a case his law firm lost while he was still in law school. In that instance, the welder won a very large judgment. There's only one other possible case that Biden could be talking about, but no public records of it exist and the law firm in question would not confirm his involvement. The details of the injuries sustained also do not match the president's description.

For as long as he's been on the political scene, Biden has been embellishing his background. I've often compared him to Forrest Gump, in that he presents himself as being present for every major event in history. The president is a known plagiarizer, and his transgressions don't stop with college papers. Is anything about his life story actually true?
