In a recent development, Patrick Morrisey, the Republican Attorney General of West Virginia, has officially urged Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment, thereby seeking the removal of President Biden from office.

Morrisey's call comes in the wake of Special Counsel Robert Hur's report, which was released last week and highlighted several instances of memory lapses by Biden, along with other frequent blunders committed during his tenure.

In a letter addressed to Harris, Morrisey stated, "For too long, Americans have had to stand by and watch as their President has experienced a profound cognitive decline. Over the last few months alone, President Biden has mixed up world leaders and political figures, strained to address basic issues in public speeches, and wandered out of events in a disoriented state." He further emphasized the grave implications of these "serious mental missteps."

Morrisey's letter also detailed multiple instances where Biden's advanced age and cognitive decline seemed to manifest in his interactions with foreign leaders. These included instances such as Biden appearing to doze off during the COP26 climate change conference in 2021, and his subsequent need to clarify the U.S.'s "One China" policy after pledging to defend Taiwan militarily in case of an attack.

Morrisey concluded his letter by urging Harris to "invoke your powers under Section 4 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment and declare that President Biden is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

Hur's report, which was a result of an investigation into Biden's mishandling of classified documents, stated that the president would not face charges partly due to his potential defense that he is a "sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory." The report also cited instances where investigators noted the president's memory lapses, causing increased concern among Democrats who previously supported the president despite Republican criticism of his ability to serve.

Following the release of Hur's report, other elected officials, including Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., and Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Pa., have also called for the invocation of the 25th Amendment.
