Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker expressed suspicion in response to a special counsel’s report that raised concerns about President Joe Biden’s mental capacity regarding his handling of classified documents. Pritzker stated, “I smell a rat.”
The recently released special counsel report on Thursday concluded that there was no evidence of any wrongdoing by Biden in his handling of classified materials following his tenure as vice president. However, the report also raised concerns about the mental sharpness of the 81-year-old.
According to the report, during his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory appeared to be worse. He couldn’t recall when he served as vice president, as he forgot on the first day of the interview when his term ended (“if it was 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?”), and forgot on the second day of the interview when his term began (“in 2009, am I still Vice President?”).
During a news conference held on Thursday, President Biden addressed the concerns raised about his mental capacity and confidently stated that his memory is in excellent condition.
Illinois Representative Mary Miller, a Republican from Hindsboro, has issued a statement asserting that Governor Pritzker should demand President Biden’s resignation. Miller emphasizes that if Pritzker remains silent on this matter, he would forfeit any possibility of pursuing higher office and also compromise national security.
Miller also urged Biden cabinet officials to invoke the 25th Amendment in order to remove the president.
According to Miller, Joe Biden’s ability to serve as Commander-in-Chief is questionable, and his continued presence in office poses a threat to America’s national security. Miller asserts that if Biden is unwilling to step down, it is imperative for the Cabinet to convene and invoke the 25th Amendment.
Pritzker, a staunch supporter of Biden’s reelection efforts, expressed frustration that the report’s main conclusion of Biden’s innocence is being overshadowed by discussions about his memory.
“I’m not sure what the special counsel’s intention was, but I believe it was unfair for him to share his personal opinion about someone’s abilities while also making decisions about charging or investigating them,” Pritzker expressed. “The comments he made seem suspicious to me, and I think it was unnecessary for him to bring up that topic. In my opinion, the entire subject he addressed was unjust.”
When asked about the American citizens who have read the report and express concerns about the mental fitness of the president, Pritzker confidently stated that Biden is indeed fit to be the president.
According to Pritzker, he has had the opportunity to spend time with the president of the United States on multiple occasions. In his opinion, the president is highly knowledgeable and well-informed. Pritzker admires the president’s extensive experience in government and the valuable roles he has played.
Pritzker believes that Biden should engage in more public events to demonstrate his capabilities.
“It’s always beneficial for him to be in public,” Pritzker remarked. “He impresses everyone with his intelligence and capability whenever he is in the spotlight.”
This August, the Democratic National Convention will be held in Chicago.
