Speaker Johnson Urges White House Cabinet to Consider Invoking 25th Amendment



In a dramatic political move, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson has called on the White House Cabinet to consider invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Joe Biden from office. This appeal comes amid growing concerns over Biden’s cognitive abilities and overall fitness to lead the nation.

During a press conference, Johnson articulated the gravity of the situation, emphasizing the need for decisive action to ensure the stability and effectiveness of the executive branch. “There’s a lot of people asking about the 25th Amendment, invoking the 25th Amendment right now because this is an alarming situation,” Johnson said. He cited recent incidents that have raised questions about Biden’s mental acuity and decision-making capacity.

The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of a sitting president if they are deemed unable to discharge the powers and duties of their office. For this process to begin, the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet must declare the president unfit. Johnson clarified the procedural aspects, stating, “Unfortunately, it’s not the House that gets to determine that, it’s the Cabinet under the Constitution, of course, it’s the Cabinet that makes that decision.”

Johnson’s announcement has sparked intense debate within Congress and across the nation. Supporters argue that the measure is necessary to address legitimate concerns about Biden’s health and competency. Critics, however, view it as a politically motivated effort to undermine a duly elected president.
