Rep. Tenney Asks AG to 'Explore' Invoking 25th Amendment

By    |   Friday, 09 February 2024 10:28 AM EST

Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., has sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking him and the rest of the Cabinet to explore invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Joe Biden from office following a Justice Department report that commented on his "poor memory."

The Justice Department this week released special counsel Robert Hur's report on Biden's practices in regard to classified documents after he left office as vice president and before he was elected to the White House in 2020.

The report recommended not charging Biden with any crimes and noted that the president could present a defense based on his "poor memory," and cited multiple instances in which Biden reportedly could not remember the dates of significant events.

Tenney, on Thursday evening, sent a letter to Garland informing him of her "grave concerns" following the "alarming" report.

She wrote that if Biden is not "mentally competent to stand trial," then he "most seemingly lacks the ability to execute his presidential responsibilities."

Tenney continued, "So it is incumbent upon you to explore proceedings to remove the President pursuant to the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution."

She added: "President Biden needs to be charged, or he needs to be removed. There is no middle ground."

Biden, in a press conference Thursday night, vehemently denied the report's assertions about his memory, which he said is "fine."
