West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey wants Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment and declare President Joe Biden unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.
In a letter to Harris dated Tuesday, Morrisey said Americans have watched as Biden has experienced a “profound” cognitive decline. He asked her to look past her personal relationship with the president and evaluate the situation objectively.
“President Biden’s cognitive decline is one of great concern to Americans, especially during these times that our nation is facing crisis after crisis both here and abroad,” Morris said. “We need a president who is mentally fit.”
Morrisey is one of seven Republicans running for governor in the state’s May 14 primary.
Morrisey’s letter comes four days after Special Counsel Robert Hur, tasked with looking into his handling of classified documents, announced Biden had committed a crime but should not be charged.
As previously reported by The Center Square, Hur also cited several examples of Biden’s mental lapses, calling him an “elderly man with poor memory” whom a jury would find too sympathetic. The report said Biden could not remember when he was vice president or when his son died, among other things.
“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,” Hur said in the report.
Biden followed the report with a news conference where he tried to defend his mental fitness.
Harris called the report politically motivated.
In the letter, Morrisey highlighted several things he called missteps by Biden, including when he “fell asleep during the COP26 climate change conference, only to come home and implement extremist measures from the event he napped at.”
Morrisey said the report “paints a clear picture of a president who is not up for the job.”
