Biden Admin Demands Cabinet Members Review Delegation Protocols After Austin Hospitalization

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s secret hospitalization and surgery has put the White House under immense pressure since no one outside his inner circle knew anything.

Fox News reported on a memo it obtained from the White House, telling Cabinet Members they need to review their agency’s protocols if they cannot fulfill their duties.

“The White House is conducting a review of agency protocols for a delegation of authority from Cabinet Members,” wrote White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients. “The purpose of this memo is to direct your agencies to submit your existing protocols for a delegation of authority to the White House Office of Cabinet Affairs, and to ensure an updated process for such delegations in the interim. The Office of Cabinet Affairs will convey these protocols to the White House Chief of Staff.”

First and foremost, the agency has to contact and tell “the Offices of Cabinet Affairs and White House Chief of Staff in the event of a delegation of authority or potential delegation.”

The Cabinet Members have until January 12 to submit their delegation of authority plans to the White House.

We learned today that doctors treated Lloyd for prostate cancer.

On December 22, Austin had a “minimally invasive surgery” for the cancer.

That does not sound like elective surgery, which the Pentagon told us he had.

He returned home the next day.

But on January 1, Austin returned to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center due to complications from the surgery.

The doctors said Austin had “nausea with severe abdominal, hip, and leg pain.” The first exam concluded he had a urinary tract infection.

The doctors admitted Austin to the ICU on January 2. Another exam “revealed abdominal fluid collections impairing the function of his small intestines.”

“This resulted in the back up of his intestinal contents which was treated by placing a tube through his nose to drain his stomach,” the doctors described. “The abdominal fluid collections were drained by non-surgical drain placement.”

The doctors stressed that Austin “never lost consciousness and never underwent general anesthesia” while at Walter Reed.

“He continues to make progress and we anticipate a full recovery although this can be a slow process,” the doctors added.
