Biden Chief of Staff Ron Klain Expected to Resign Amid Document Scandal
The scandal concerning President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents continues to go from bad to worse.
As new developments continue to occur, highlighting the recklessness of the administration and possibly an attempted coverup of the issue, one of the top officials at the Biden White House appears ready to resign as early as next month.
On Saturday, it was reported that the Biden administration is searching for a replacement for White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.
Klain was considered a highly valued asset at the White House who was behind many of the Biden administration’s key policy initiatives and decisions in his presidency’s critical moments.

“Mr. Klain has been telling colleagues privately since the November midterm elections that after a grueling, nonstop stretch at Mr. Biden’s side going back to the 2020 campaign, he is ready to move on, according to senior administration officials, and a search for a replacement has been underway.” The New York Times reported on Saturday.
The Times attempted to paint Klain’s resignation as a non-event as they speculated that he would join Biden’s re-election team ahead of a spring 2023 announcement.
“But with Mr. Biden expected to announce by spring that he is running for re-election, advisers predict more moves as some aides shift from the White House to the campaign,” reports the Times.
The report comes just a day after Klain celebrated the Biden administration’s supposed accomplishments and said there is “so much to be done.”

While it’s not entirely unreasonable to assume that Klain will join Biden’s re-election campaign, others have speculated that it is more likely that he is jumping ship as the Biden administration struggles to respond to the document scandal that has engulfed them over the past few weeks.
The president admitted Thursday that “a handful of documents were filed in the wrong place” but denied any wrongdoing.
“I think you’re gonna find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets. I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. That’s exactly what we’re doing. There’s no there there,” he said.
Biden, in CA, asked about documents investigation: "I think you're gonna find there's nothing there. I have no regrets. I'm following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. It's exactly what we're doing. There's no there there."

Still, another troubling development broke today from the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, which the New York Post was the first to report before being censored by social media giants such as Twitter.
In another bombshell report from the New York Post, they discovered that a box of documents marked ‘important’ were left open on a table in Biden’s Delaware residence.
The photo of the open box of documents was found on Hunter Biden’s laptop just days before a children’s birthday party hosted at the Biden residence.
