Hawley to Garland: Invoke the 25th or Prosecute Biden

Friday, February 09, 2024

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statements, urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to lead his fellow Cabinet members in invoking the 25th Amendment in light of Special Counsel Robert K. Hur’s report highlighting President Biden’s lack of mental fitness, and its link to the Special Counsel’s decision not to prosecute the president for his willful mishandling of classified documents.

Senator Hawley also reacted to President Biden’s effort to rebut Special Counsel Hur’s allegations of serious mental decline after the President addressed the nation Thursday night in a speech riddled with gaffes. Senator Hawley has argued that it is Attorney General Garland’s responsibility to lead in invoking the 25th Amendment if he refuses to prosecute President Biden for his blatant mishandling of classified documents over decades.
