After an alarming report released by Special Counsel Robert Hur that highlighted Biden’s declining mental state and growing memory issues, many lawmakers and American citizens alike are calling for Biden to be removed from office.
Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney is one such voice. She says it’s time for Biden’s cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to oust him.
Biden resign now.

Per 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 for removal of a president who becomes incapacitated through any kind of illness, including mental disability.
Ironically, Democrats pushed for years for Trump to be removed from presidency underneath the same amendment.
But now, Biden is facing growing calls for the 25th Amendment to be invoked against him.
Republican Senators like Mike Lee, Rick Scott, and Josh Hawley think it’s time:
In defending his mental sharpness, Biden just mixed up the presidents of Mexico and Egypt.
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.
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
So do Republican House Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Mary Miller:
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.
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

The Washington Examiner reported on GOP lawmakers looking to oust Biden:
The lengthy report released on Thursday about the investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents did not recommend criminally charging the president. What it did include, however, were several observations about Biden’s mental ability.
Using the report as evidence, several Republican lawmakers called for Biden’s Cabinet to deem him unfit to serve as president under the 25th Amendment.
“This report labels Biden as a ‘well meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.’ That does not describe someone who should be the Commander in Chief of our armed forces and the defender of American freedoms. It’s time for his cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) wrote on X.
Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) said on separate social media posts that it was “time” for the 25th Amendment to be invoked. Lee asked, “If ever there were a time to invoke the 25th Amendment, wouldn’t that time be now?”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), in response to a House GOP leadership statement calling Biden “certainly unfit for the Oval Office,” said the president must be removed via the 25th Amendment or impeached.
But, it’s not just politicians who think Biden is mentally unfit for office.
So do journalists like Byron York of The Washington Examiner and Sean Davis of The Federalist:

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?

Mark Levin also chimed in:
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…

Even Never-Trumper Andy McCarthy thinks Biden should be removed over his declining mental state:

Do you believe it’s time for Sleep Joe to go?
