Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that Special counsel Robert Hur's report on President Joe Biden is a "great gift" to Republicans and former President Donald Trump.

"This may determine the presidency of the United States, much like the way the Comey decision may have determined 2016," Dershowitz said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "I think that this gives President Donald Trump and the Republicans a great gift."

Special counsel Robert Hur released a report on Thursday that concluded Biden willfully kept classified documents from his time as vice president, shared them with an author, and knew he had them as far back as 2017.

Hur recommended against prosecuting Biden due to the president's age and poor memory.

Dershowitz predicted that this report would hurt the president's campaign.

"The campaign slogan is simply going to be 'do you want to vote for a nice old man who has memory failings? Is he the one you want to confront Putin and other great crises we have in America?'"
