Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Thursday maintained that he is increasingly convinced that President Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee come November.
Special Counsel Robert Hur on Thursday released his final report into Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. According to the Daily Caller, Hur’s report states that the president presented himself during their interviews as an “elderly man with a poor memory.” Gingrich, while speaking on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle, said Hur’s final report left him convinced that Biden will not be the Democrat nominee for the 2024 election.

“I mean, this report basically says that he is so incompetent and so sad and so lacking in any kind of memory that no jury would convict him of willfully breaking the law because they don’t think he has enough cognitive ability to willfully do anything. I mean, if you actually read what Hur wrote … it’s beyond devastating. He couldn’t remember what year he was vice president. He couldn’t remember what year his son died. You just go down the list. “It makes you feel sad, and it makes you wonder how his family could allow him to be this publicly humiliated … At one level, and it won’t happen, you can imagine him saying, ‘You know, I read the report, and he is right, and I can’t really be president, so I’m resigning, and Kamala Harris will be the new president.’ That has its own set of problems and is the best argument against the 25th amendment.”
Gingrich predicts the Democrat party will figure out that the country can not give Biden four more years at the White House and will rebel against his nomination.
“But, I read this report today, and I’m now increasingly convinced he will not be the democratic nominee. The party will rebel and will figure out you can’t possibly ask the country to give four more years to a person who his own Justice Department says is mentally so incompetent that it wouldn’t be fair to try him because he couldn’t possibly know what he was doing. That’s the essence of what they are saying. Well, if that’s true, how can he be commander-in-chief? How can he be dealing with Iran or Russia or China. I think this is a big, big problem and should be a serious national debate,” Gingrich stated.
