Today, President Biden temporarily transferred power to Vice President Harris.
“As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia,” Psaki said. “The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”
In the letter sent to Senator Leahy, Biden said that he will undergo “a routine medical procedure requiring sedation” in Walter Reed.
After having completed a medical procedure, President Biden issued a letter to Speaker Pelosi that he is resuming his powers and duties.
