Florida Sen. Rick Scott recently called for President Biden’s cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment last week, following the findings from Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report regarding Biden’s elderly age and declining cognitive function.
The Florida Republican took to X where he called out the conclusion from the special counsel report, stating that it would necessitate Biden’s cabinet to remove him from office. Under the 25th Amendment, the Vice President is to assume the role of the president in the event of resignation or death.
“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,” Scott wrote in his social media post. “It’s time for his cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment,” he added.
Hur’s report ultimately concluded that there was insufficient evidence to bring charges against President Biden. However, the report stated that the determination was also partly based on Biden’s “significant limitations” in memory and old age.
“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” the report states. “Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt.”
The official report explicitly substantiates the concerns surrounding Biden’s memory, detailing conversations where Biden struggled to recall basic events in his life, such as when he served as Vice President under the Biden administration.
“Mr. Biden’s memory also appeared to have significant limitations-both at the time he spoke to Zwonitzer in 2017, as evidenced by their recorded conversations, and today, as evidenced by his recorded interview with our office. Mr. Biden’s recorded conversations with Zwonitzer from 2017 are often painfully slow, with Mr. Biden struggling to remember events and straining at times to read and relay his own notebook entries,” the report stated.
“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (“if it was 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?”), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (“in 2009, am I still Vice President?”),” the special counsel findings continued.
The American Tribune reported on Biden’s reaction to the commentary on his memory, raging at the conclusions of the special counsel report. According to anonymous sources, the president profanely stated in a private conversation, ““How the f— could I forget the day my son died? Of course, I remember everything.”
“There’s even reference that I don’t remember when my son died. How in the hell dare he raise that. Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself: ‘wasn’t any of their damn business,’” Biden said in a public statement last week. “Frankly, when I was asked a question I talked to myself was it any of their damn business?”
