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

Republican Representative Claudia Tenney has called upon the Cabinet to explore the utilization of the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to oust President Biden from his position. This call comes in response to Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report, which Tenney deems “alarming.”

While Hur did not propose criminal charges against the president for the mishandling of classified documents, he highlighted the gravity of the situation. The mishandled records encompassed sensitive information regarding military affairs in Afghanistan and other national security matters, implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods.

Despite acknowledging Biden as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur’s report raised concerns about the president’s mental faculties. Throughout the extensive 300-page report, Hur suggested it would be challenging to convince a jury to convict Biden of a serious felony due to his age and mental state.

Tenney expressed her “grave concerns” in a letter addressed to Attorney General Garland, emphasizing the alarming findings of the report. She criticized the decision not to bring charges against Biden despite evidence of repeated mishandling of classified information.

The New York representative condemned the notion of selective prosecution, asserting that legal proceedings should not be influenced by personality traits or public perception. She argued that if there’s sufficient evidence to warrant charges, they must be pursued regardless of the individual’s status.

Tenney raised questions about the Department of Justice’s ethical standards, highlighting the disparity in treatment between Biden and former President Trump. She stressed the urgency of the situation, suggesting that either Biden faces charges or steps are taken to remove him from office.

The invocation of the 25th Amendment, according to Tenney, is necessary if the president is deemed unable to fulfill his duties adequately due to mental incapacitation. She emphasized the need for decisive action, asserting that there is no middle ground in addressing the issue.

In response to Tenney’s call, President Biden defended himself during a national address, asserting that his memory is intact and dismissing concerns about his fitness for office. However, Hur’s report detailed instances where Biden struggled to recall key details, raising further doubts about his cognitive abilities.

Despite Biden’s reassurances, questions linger about his mental acuity, especially in light of his lapses during public appearances and interviews. The debate over his fitness for office continues to intensify, with critics and supporters alike scrutinizing his every word and action.
