Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich explained on Fox News on Thursday why he is “increasingly confident” that President Joe Biden is not the Democratic nominee for the 2024 election.
Gingrich appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” to talk about recent events. ruling Biden's handling of classified documents that special counsel Robert Hur declined to indict. According to Heo's report, Biden referred to himself during the interview as “He is an old man with poor memory. ”
Fox host Laura Ingraham asked the former House speaker what she thought Biden would say at an upcoming news conference. Mr. Gingrich outlined the key points of the report, which referred to Mr. Biden's “cognitive abilities.” (Related: 'Virtually screaming': Call for 25th eruption after Xu's damning Biden report)
“So this report basically says he's so incompetent, so sad, and so lacking in any kind of memory that the jury doesn't think he had enough cognitive capacity to do anything on purpose.” We're saying we can't convict him of willfully breaking the law because we don't think he has it.'' I mean, when you actually read what Hur has written…it's beyond shocking. He couldn't remember what year he was vice president. He could not remember in what year his son died. He just goes down the list,” Gingrich said.
“It makes me sad and makes me wonder how his family could have allowed him to be humiliated so publicly… on some level, and I don't think that would ever happen. , I can imagine him saying, 'You know, I read the report, and he's right. I can't really be president, so I'm resigning, and Kamala Harris will be the new president. ” This has its own problems and is the best argument against the 25th Amendment. ”
The former House speaker said he is “increasingly convinced” that Biden's mental state will prevent him from being the Democratic nominee in 2024. Gingrich questioned how Biden could deal with foreign countries like Iran and Russia if the Justice Department says he is “highly mentally incompetent.” (Related article: Special counsel calls Biden a 'well-meaning old man with a poor memory')
“But after reading this report today, I am more and more convinced that he will not be the Democratic Party's nominee. It is unreasonable for the party to revolt and ask the country for another four years on one person. I would understand that it is possible lolHis own Justice Department has said it would be unfair to try him because he is so mentally incompetent that he cannot know what he is doing. That's the essence of what they're saying. Well, if that's true, how could he be commander-in-chief? How does he deal with Iran, Russia, and China? I think this is a very big issue and should be a serious national discussion,” Gingrich said.
After the special counsel's report was released on Thursday, many Republicans criticized Barr's statements about Biden's memory, and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy invoked the 25th Amendment. He said there was “sufficient” evidence that
