Joe Biden held a press conference on Thursday in Delaware after a virtual meeting with several governors, where he spoke about a national mask mandate and his decision on who he would nominate for Treasury Secretary.

A video from the press conference is circulating of Biden stumbling over his words. As he was speaking about Title 32 funding for the National Guard, he is unable to complete his sentence.

“We discussed the need to help states with Title 32 funding for the National Guard,” he began.

But the former vice president, who has been open about suffering from a stutter, struggled to explain what Title 32 funding was.

President Donald Trump has questioned whether Biden’s verbal stumbles are evidence of cognitive decline. 

During Biden’s time on the campaign trail, there were many instances where he was forgetful.

Last month, Biden was mocked during a virtual rally for forgetting Trump’s name.

“Four more years of George, er, George, er, he – we’re going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world,” Biden said.

During a campaign event in Philadelphia he wore a jacket featuring the logo of the University of Delaware. Biden told rallygoers that he was wearing a jacket of the Philadelphia Eagles.

“I know Philadelphia well, I married a Philly girl, by the way, and by the way, I got my Eagles jacket on,” Biden said. 

Biden has described himself as a “gaffe machine.”

Today is Biden’s 78th birthday, making him the oldest US president to take office.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

United States Congress

The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.

The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.

The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.

Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
