In a recent development, Representative Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) has intensified calls for President Joe Biden’s removal from office through the 25th Amendment. This comes after a special counsel, Robert Hur, investigated Biden’s handling of classified documents and reported signs of “diminished faculties and faulty memory.”
Biden is either mentally capable to stand trial & should be charged for mishandling classified documents as Vice President OR he is unfit to serve as President. There is no middle ground- Rep. Claudia Tenney
In a letter dated February 8 addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Tenney expressed “grave concerns” after reviewing Hur’s report. Despite the findings that President Biden knowingly mishandled classified documents over several decades, Hur recommended against bringing charges, citing concerns about the president being perceived as a sympathetic elderly man with a poor memory.
Tenney emphasized the importance of avoiding selective prosecution, stating, “We don’t prosecute or decline to prosecute people based on their personalities or the public’s anticipated perception of them. If the evidence supports charges, they must be brought.”

Hur’s decision not to prosecute was also justified by a lack of sufficient evidence to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. However, this reasoning appears inconsistent with the determination that President Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials” as a private citizen. Tenney pointed out the contrast in the Justice Department’s treatment of Biden and former President Donald Trump, currently facing prosecution in a similar case.
Highlighting the disparities, Tenney stated, “The Department of Justice cannot ethically bring charges against former President Trump because of his mental acuity and a forceful personality and decline to bring charges against President Biden because of his cognitive decline. President Biden needs to be charged unless he is not mentally competent to stand trial.”
Hur’s report detailed instances where President Biden struggled to recall significant details about his personal life and career. Tenney found these memory lapses exceptionally concerning and concluded that Biden might not be competent to stand trial or execute his presidential responsibilities.

Calling for immediate action, she urged Garland to initiate proceedings for President Biden’s removal under the 25th Amendment, stating, “President Biden needs to be charged, or he needs to be removed. There is no middle ground.”
The 25th Amendment provides the constitutional process for removing a president deemed unfit to discharge their duties. The vice president and a majority of the president’s cabinet can invoke the amendment, leading to the vice president assuming the role of acting president. If the president disputes his incapacity, a two-thirds majority vote in Congress is required for removal.

Following the release of Hur’s report, President Biden held a press conference addressing the findings. However, his statements did little to assuage concerns about his fitness for office. Notably, he mixed up the presidents of Mexico and Egypt, and his defiant and, at times, angry responses to reporters were widely criticized, leading to more officials calling for his removal.
Representative Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a former White House physician, urged the use of the 25th Amendment, asserting that Biden’s mental fitness had become a national security issue. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) concurred, stating that Biden should either resign or face criminal prosecution, calling on Garland to invoke the 25th Amendment or pursue charges against the president. The growing chorus of voices demanding accountability underscores the increasing concerns about President Biden’s ability to fulfill his duties.
