GOP Rep. Tenney calls to invoke 25th Amendment to remove Biden from office after 'alarming' Hur report

 Republican Representative Claudia Tenney has called on the Cabinet to "explore" the use of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove President Biden from office, following Special Counsel Robert Hur's "alarming" report.

Hur did not recommend bringing criminal charges against the President for misuse of classified documents. Those records included classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, in addition to other records related to national security and foreign policy, which Hur said included "sensitive intelligence sources and methods."

Biden says his memory is 'fine', he is 'the most qualified person in this country' to be president

However, Hur described Biden as a "sympathetic, well-intentioned, elderly man with a failing memory." Hur said in the more than 300-page report, "It will be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him of a serious crime" that requires a strong-willed mental state, and that he was "good at his job." Kind of like "the eighties."

Fox News Digital is headed by Tenney, R-N.Y. received a letter, which was sent to Attorney General Garland Thursday night, sharing its "serious concerns" following the report.

Tenney wrote, "After concluding that President Biden knowingly and knowingly withheld, improperly deleted, and repeatedly disclosed classified documents over a period of decades, Mr. Hur nevertheless recommended that his Allegations should not be made against him." "The special counsel's argument was worrying."

Tenney said: "He recounted several instances in which President Biden demonstrated dramatically compromised mental abilities and concluded that a jury was likely to view President Biden as an empathetic and forgetful old man."

Tenney said he "doesn't need to tell you that selective prosecution is morally, ethically and legally prohibited."

"We do not prosecute or refuse to prosecute people based on their personality or the public's anticipated perception of them," Tenney wrote. "If the special counsel feels the evidence creates reasonable grounds to bring charges, he should do so."

Tenney said the DOJ "cannot ethically bring charges against former President Trump because he has mental acuity and a forceful personality, and declined to bring charges against President Biden because of his cognitive decline."

Tenney said Biden "needs to be charged unless he is mentally competent to stand trial."

Tenney said, "Clearly, the special counsel's report makes a reasonable case which it is not."

"To be unable to remember what position one held, and when, is exceptionally distressing. To be unable to remember when one's child died – even over a time frame of several years." Within – perhaps a more serious reflection of his mental impairment."

Tenney further said that Biden "appears to lack the ability to execute his presidential responsibilities."

"It is therefore your responsibility to pursue proceedings to remove the President in accordance with the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution," Tenney wrote. “President Biden needs to be impeached, or he needs to be removed.”

He added, "There is no middle ground."

Special counsel calls Biden a 'sympathetic, well-intentioned, elderly man with memory loss', no charges filed

The 25th Amendment can be invoked by the Cabinet if the President becomes incapacitated to the extent that he cannot fulfill his responsibilities.

However, Biden addressed the nation on Thursday night, saying his memory was "fine" and defending his re-election campaign, saying he was "the most qualified person in this country to be president."

"I'm well-intentioned, and I'm an older man and I know what I'm doing," Biden said. "I have been president. I have put this country back on its feet. I don't need their recommendation."

Biden said: "My recollection is spot on."

During his address, Biden also hit back at special counsel Robert Hur for suggesting he could not remember when his son Beau died.

"How dare he bring this up?" Biden said. “To be honest, when I was asked a question, I thought to myself, what is this business of yours?”

“Let me tell you something… I swear, every day since the day he died… I wear the rosary that he got from Our Lady—” Biden paused, looking like he Had forgotten where the rosary had come from.

Biden became visibly emotional, and declared: "I don't need anybody - I don't need anybody to remind me when he passed away or when he passed away."

However, moments later, Biden moved on to discuss the conflict in the Middle East. Biden called Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi "the President of Mexico."

But the president took a barrage of questions from the White House press corps, some shouting and pressing him on whether he was fit to run for re-election.

"I am the most qualified person in this country to be president of the United States," Biden said. He also said that he had to "finish the work I started."

Meanwhile, Hur said in the report that Biden, during his interview with the special counsel's team, could not remember key details, such as when he was vice president.

"In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden's memory was poor," the report said. "He did not remember when he was Vice President, forgot the first day of the interview when his term ended ('If it were 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?'), and forgot the second day of the interview when his term ended. Tenure Begins ('In 2009, Am I Still Vice President?')."

No charges for Biden after special counsel investigation into improper handling of classified documents

The report further stated, "She could not remember within several years when her son Beau had died." "And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate, which had once been very important to him. Among other things, he erroneously said that he had 'real differences of opinion' with General Carl Eikenberry, whereas, In fact, Eikenberry was an aide Mr. Biden noted approvingly in his thank-you note to President Obama."

"In a case where the government would have to prove that Mr. Biden knew that he was in possession of classified Afghanistan documents after his vice presidency and that he decided to keep those documents, knowing he was violating the law, “We expect that at the trial, his lawyers will emphasize that there are these limitations on his memory,” the report said.

As for Biden's recollection, before the report was released, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday defended Biden when asked about the mistake the president made in 2021. Spoke with Chancellor Helmut Kohl – who had actually died four years earlier. First – arguing that misspeaking "happens to all of us, and it's common."

That mistake was similar to the one Biden made on Sunday when he claimed he had spoken at the same G7 meeting to French President Francois Mitterrand, who died in 1996.

  1. Whoever put this article together must have come from one of our 'elite' universities. The mis-naming of he and she, and who said what, is typical of a third-grader.
    The report further stated, "She could not remember within several years when her son Beau had died." "And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate, which had once been very important to him."
    Biden 'doesn't remember when he was vice president,' as his son Beau dies during special counsel interview. What does this mean ?
