Republicans demand Biden’s doctor testify about president’s mental state

by Admin

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer is demanding that White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor testify regarding President Biden’s mental state and overseas business dealings.

Comer, a Republican from Kentucky, also called on O’Connor to release relevant documents related to the president’s younger brother, James Biden. He gave O’Connor a week to contact committee staffers in a letter sent on Sunday.

“After a concerning debate performance by President Biden against former President Donald Trump on June 27, journalists have rushed to report on what Americans have seen plainly for years: the President appears unwell,” Comer wrote in the letter.

He criticized O’Connor’s February health summary, which stated that “Biden is a healthy, active, robust 81-year-old male, who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency.”

Comer also expressed concerns that O’Connor has not recommended Biden undergo a cognitive exam amid increasing worries about his mental acuity.

Biden and his personal doctor

 

Biden, 81, has faced criticism from both the media and Democrats regarding his fitness for the presidency following his debate performance against former President Donald Trump.

During the debate, Biden stumbled over his words, paused unexpectedly, and appeared to lose his train of thought. He later attributed his performance to being “exhausted,” but maintained that he is capable of fulfilling his duties and will not withdraw from the race.

When asked why he hasn’t taken a cognitive exam, Biden told ABC News on Friday, “No one said I had to,” adding, “I get a full neurological test every day” as president.

Comer pointed out inconsistencies between White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s statement on July 3 that Biden has not had any medical exams since his February checkup and a report from NBC that the president told Democratic governors last Wednesday he had been “checked out by a doctor after the debate and everything was fine.”

“Given your connections with the Biden family, the Committee also seeks to understand if you are in a position to provide accurate and independent reviews of the President’s fitness to serve,” Comer stated.

Comer further alleged that O’Connor’s positive assessment of Biden might have been influenced by his past interactions with the president’s brother, James Biden.
