Fox News reports that several Democratic U.S. Senators have just come out in support of a full investigation of the ever-growing classified documents scandal involving President Joe Biden.
This includes U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Tim Kaine (D-VA).
“Irresponsible and disturbing”
Fox has received statements from both Manchin and Kaine on the matter, and, suffice it to say, the statements are not the type of statements that Biden would want to hear from his fellow congressional Democrats.
Manchin told Fox News Digital, “the reports about President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents are extremely irresponsible and disturbing. These allegations should be investigated fully.”
Kaine made a similar statement, saying that the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) “appointment of an unbiased special prosecutor to investigate the matter is the right step.”
Fox goes on to report, “Fox News Digital reached out to every Senate Democrat who has yet to make a statement on the Biden documents and whose term ends in 2024, but all except Manchin and Kaine didn’t respond.”
This might be one of those situations where silence speaks louder than words. Why wouldn’t Biden’s many congressional allies vocally come to his defense?
The classified documents scandal appears to be growing by the day.
Initially, reports were about classified documents discovered by Biden’s legal team during a search of his private office at the Penn-Biden center just before the 2022 midterm elections. Then, two more batches of classified documents were found at Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, residence. And now, over the weekend, yet another batch of classified documents was found at the residence after a consensual DOJ search of the premises.
There are many, many questions about all of this that have yet to be answered, such as: why did Biden have the documents in his possession? And, who had access to them?
But, there is another important question to ask, here, which is why has the fact that Biden improperly had classified documents in his possession been revealed to the public in the first place?
Is Biden’s time up?
The Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson has been one of the leading proponents of the idea that this is all designed to essentially get rid of Biden ahead of 2024.
Carlson has noted that none of this had to be made public. With the Biden administration at the helm and people sympathetic to the Biden administration running many top government agencies, including the DOJ, Biden’s classified documents scandal could have been kept hidden. But, it hasn’t been.
Accordingly, Carlson has argued, “this is pretty clearly the beginning of the end for Joe Biden.” And, perhaps, this is supported by the Senate Democrats’ failure to come to Biden’s defense.
