Following the shocking report by Special Counsel Robert Hur that detailed Biden’s deteriorating mental faculties and increasing memory lapses, numerous lawmakers and citizens are urging for Biden’s removal from office.
Republican Representative Claudia Tenney is among those advocating for action. She asserts that it’s imperative for Biden’s cabinet to utilize the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

“You need to remove him or you need to charge him,” Tenney told Fox News host Trace Ghallager.

From Fox News:
Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney is calling for the Cabinet to “explore” the use of the Constitution’s 25th Amendment to remove President Biden from office, following Special Counsel Robert Hur’s “alarming” report.
Hur did not recommend criminal charges against the president for mishandling classified documents. Those records included classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, among other records related to national security and foreign policy which Hur said implicated “sensitive intelligence sources and methods.”
Hur, though, described Biden as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” Hur, throughout the more than 300-page report, said “it would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him” of a serious felony “that requires a mental state of willfulness,” and said he would be “well into his eighties.”
Fox News Digital obtained a letter Tenney, R-N.Y., sent to Attorney General Garland Thursday night, sharing her “grave concerns” following the report.
“After concluding that President Biden knowingly and willfully removed, mishandled, and disclosed classified documents repeatedly over a period of decades, Mr. Hur nevertheless recommended that charges not be brought against him,” Tenney wrote. “Special Counsel’s reasoning was alarming.”
Tenney went on to say that Biden “most seemingly lacks the ability to execute his presidential responsibilities.”
“So it is incumbent upon you to explore proceedings to remove the President pursuant to the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution,” Tenney wrote. “President Biden needs to be charged, or he needs to be removed.”
She added: “There is no middle ground.”
The 25th Amendment allows the removal of a president who becomes incapacitated due to any form of illness, including mental decline.
Interestingly, Democrats advocated for years to use the same amendment to remove President Trump from office.
Now, Biden is facing growing demands for the 25th Amendment to be applied against him.
Republicans such as Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. Rick Scott, Rep. MTG, Rep. Mary Miller and Sen. Josh Hawley also believe it’s necessary:

This train wreck of a press conference confirms the need for the 25th Amendment. https://t.co/TzF4cc8nfe
I agree with @RepLuna—the fact that President Biden is suffering from serious cognitive issues is a significant threat to national security.— Mike Lee (@BasedMikeLee) February 9, 2024
His cabinet members need to invoke the 25th Amendment.
If they don’t, they—and he—should be impeached.
We don’t need this. https://t.co/spYNOXRiR2
Time for the 25th Amendment— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) February 8, 2024
The Special Counsel’s report exposing that Joe Biden’s mental decline is so severe that he can not stand trial means he is unfit for office.— Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene🇺🇸 (@RepMTG) February 8, 2024
We must demand either the 25th amendment be invoked or impeachment. https://t.co/HQT8hGVBua
For the safety of our nation, Joe Biden must resign. He could not remember basic facts about his life. He is not competent to remain as Commander-in-Chief & every day that he remains, he puts America at risk. If he won't resign, the Cabinet must invoke the 25th Amendment. pic.twitter.com/ZN7bJM5uZk— Rep. Mary Miller (@RepMaryMiller) February 8, 2024
However, it’s not just politicians who question Biden’s mental fitness for office.
Journalists share the same concerns:
If Trump wasn’t mentally fit to serve as president six years ago under the 25th Amendment, as countless left-wing morons told us, how is he fit to stand trial today before the same regime that just magically declared Biden gets to both remain as president and not stand trial?— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) February 8, 2024
Tonight, on my radio show, I will start explaining that the special counsel report should trigger the 25th amendment and removeal of Biden. Yes, yes, I know who would become president, but it would be no different and she's an electoral disaster as well. But the issue is…— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) February 8, 2024
Never-Trumper Andy McCarthy agrees.
