Appearing Thursday at a CNN town hall event, former Vice President Joe Biden delivered yet another gaffe by saying his deceased son Beau Biden, who served as the Attorney General of Delaware, was the United States Attorney General — a position held by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch during the Obama Administration.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: President Trump’s Department of Justice recently got involved in the trial of Roger Stone — a close confidant of Trump’s.
This led to four of the federal prosecutors to either withdraw from the case or resign from the department altogether.
JOE BIDEN: First of all, for years and years I was chairman of the [Senate] Judiciary Committee.
My son — my deceased son — was the Attorney General of the United States and before that, he was a federal prosecutor in one of the largest office’s in the country in Philadelphia.
