Hannity Floats Theory Biden ‘Inner Circle’ May Not Want Him In 2024 Race
Fox News anchor Sean Hannity has hinted that members of President Joe Biden’s “inner circle” may have conspired to prevent him from launching a 2024 re-election campaign.
In the Wednesday evening edition of Hannythe conservative pundit linked the alleged conspiracy to the emergence of a potentially politically damaging report that Biden may have been in possession of a second batch of classified documents while in private.
It was revealed earlier this week that another pile of classified documents from Biden’s vice presidential days had been discovered in a private office he used to use. Conservatives wasted no time in drawing parallels to the classified documents seized by the FBI from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home last year.
Republicans, including Trump, have urged the FBI to search Biden’s homes for more classified documents. Hannity reiterated the request during his Wednesday show, suggesting it was no coincidence that news of the Biden documents broke as the president is considering formally running for re-election.
“I think it’s time for a Mar-a-Lago style raid on Joe Biden’s private homes,” Hannity said. “Maybe someone in Joe’s inner circle… Think about it – why is this happening twice in one week? Could this be the result? [of] Maybe someone doesn’t want Joe to run for re-election?”
“While we have absolutely no knowledge of this as a fact, it’s certainly suspect in terms of timing,” he continued. “But what’s good for the goose is certainly good for the gander. Correct, [Attorney General] Merrick garland? To the right, [FBI Director] Chris Wray?”
Hannity wasn’t the only one to promote the idea that the classified document discoveries were timed to prevent Biden from seeking a second term.
The theory was circulated by others on social media, with some claiming the alleged conspiracy was part of a plan designed to allow California Gov. Gavin Newsom to become the 2024 Democratic nominee in place of Biden.
“It is no coincidence that Biden’s classified documents scandal is breaking just as he is beginning to push for re-election in 2024.” tweeted former GOP congressional candidate David Giglio. “Democrats assumed he wouldn’t, and now they’re going to make sure he can’t. He has served his purpose. Gavin Newsom is the choice.”
“Operation Oust Biden continues… a second set of classified documents has been found,” said former Newsman anchor Grant Stinchfield tweeted. “Gavin Newsom warms up in the bull pen.”
“Prepare for Communist Gavin Newsome in the 2024 election” tweeted User @LiberateVietnam. “Democrats are trying to get rid of Joe Biden with classified documents.”
Although Biden has not officially stated that he intends to run again in 2024, he has repeatedly indicated that he expects to be in the running, with Vice President Kamala Harris again serving as his running mate.
A survey commissioned by news week by Redfield & Wilton Strategies last month revealed that a 58 percent majority of voters do not want Biden to run for re-election. 42 percent of the majority named the advanced age of the 80-year-old president as the most important reason.
Meanwhile, polls also suggest that Biden’s once abysmal approval ratings are rising steadily. A poll published by Investor’s Business Daily This week and conducted by pollster TIPP found that the president’s approval rating, while still slightly negative, had improved to 49.1 percent.
news week has reached out to the White House for comment.
