Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich detailed on Fox News Friday what Congress must “demand” from President Joe Biden to keep America “survival.”
Gingrich appeared on “Hannity” to discuss Special Counsel Robert Hur's recent report on Biden's handling of classified documents. Mr. Hsu decided not to press charges against the president, but his report describes Mr. Biden as an “old man with a poor memory.” Doubts about Biden's mental health have grown since the report was released.
Fox host Sean Hannity asked the former House speaker for his thoughts on the report and what action U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland should take. Gingrich said the report is no longer about politics but provides “very clear language” and a “clear example” about “the survival of America.”
“Well, I think the very clear language and very clear examples in the special report present a very simple challenge. This is not about politics. This is about the survival of the United States. “It's a problem. We have to worry about North Korea, Taiwan, Iran, the entire Middle East, Ukraine. And now, based on a Justice Department report, we're told we have a president that we really don't understand,” Gingrich said. he said.
Gingrich said the 25th Amendment must be invoked if Biden does not comply with Congress' demands for cognitive testing. (Related article: Special counsel calls Biden a 'well-meaning old man with a poor memory')
“And the idea that the papers just happened to be in his garage next to the Corvette, but it was actually fine. I think that's secondary. Normally I would say this is a big deal, but cognitive function part is such a threat to the country that I think we have to insist that he be tested somehow. If we can't test him, then we have to insist on enforcing the 25th Amendment. I think so. I can't overstate this.”
Mr. Gingrich continued to highlight issues within the Biden administration, citing recent comments from Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. disappearance He resigned from his post due to a hospitalization that the White House was not informed of for days. The former House speaker also said the idea that Biden could make decisions involving “nuclear war” while being “obviously mentally incompetent” is “terrifying.”
“Nuclear war could be a matter of minutes. If this guy, especially the Secretary of Defense, went out for a week without taking a vacation and didn't tell him, what if he told him? You have to think, what would Joe do if he did? Will Biden remember? I mean, I don't think this is really funny,” Gingrich said.
“Woodrow Wilson suffered a very severe stroke that left him completely incapacitated. His wife actually ran the government for about a year, but that was relatively early in the post-World War I era. It was a time of peace, and she literally wouldn't let anyone talk. Now we have a president who has to make decisions that could include nuclear war. And he's clearly a mentally incompetent human being. I think it’s a terrible thing to allow something to happen.”
Biden appeared at a late-night press conference Thursday and addressed the allegations regarding his mental health. However, the president denied that he forgot certain details during his interview with Mr. Xu, so he said: Appeared It's to remember the parish that gave him a rosary to carry in memory of his son Beau Biden's death. Biden also confused the presidents of Mexico and Egypt.
