Republicans are pushing the idea that Democrats are conspiring against Biden

Fox News’ Sean Hannity suggested that President Joe Biden, who is in possession of several stacks of classified documents, is part of a conspiracy to remove him from the 2024 ballot. Other Republicans have followed suit with similar theories.

The White House confirmed this week that classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president were discovered in his former office at the Penn Biden Center, a think tank in Washington, DC

Biden was subjected to additional scrutiny and social media, which mocked another batch of documents discovered at his home in Wilmington, Delaware. The first batch was discovered on November 2, 2022 and the second on December 20, 2022.

“God willing, I’ll have a chance to talk about all of this soon… by the way, my Corvette’s in a locked garage, okay? So, it’s not like they’re sitting on the street,” Biden said Thursday in his defense. “But as I said earlier this week, people know I take classified documents and classified material seriously.”

While Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday that Robert Hur, who was appointed US Attorney for the District of Maryland under the Trump administration, will review Biden’s documents as a special counsel, some Republicans — including the former president’s son Donald Trump Jr – have urged the FBI to search Biden’s home in a manner similar to what federal agents have done in Mar-a-Lago.

“I’ve been saying for a long time that Democrats need to find a way to get rid of Joe Biden,” said Texas GOP Representative Ronny Jackson, a former senior medical adviser in the Trump administration. said Newsmax. “They don’t want this man running for president again. It is a recipe for disaster in the next presidential election.”

Jackson said he thinks Democrats would point to Biden’s “cognitive issue” or allegations surrounding his son, Hunter Biden, to not re-elect him in 2024.

“Maybe that’s what they’re doing, maybe that’s the first shot they’re going to fire to try and put him in a position where he’ll eventually have to resign or at least decide he’s not going to run again.” said Jackson added.

“Normally Democrats bleach, shred and burn, why are they turning on him?” tweeted Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Steve Bannon said on Gettr that it made “no sense” for Biden’s personal attorneys to move things out of Penn Biden’s office and wondered why they were there in the first place.

“Has Biden already been subpoenaed?” Bannon asked.

Said conservative commentator Monica Crowley of Bannon war room Podcast that the difference between Trump’s secret documents and Biden’s is that Biden had documents in two unsecured locations and not one.

Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor and president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, disagreed with Crowley about the differences between the investigations.

“[Other factors] are the significantly larger number of documents found at Mar-a-Lago, Biden’s reported collaboration with the National Archives and Justice Department and Trump’s lack thereof, and the possibility that Biden was genuinely unaware of the documents,” Rahmani said news week.

Crowley, like Edward Snowden, mentioned that possession of the documents was probably known to some Democrats but was never mentioned before the midterm elections. However, Snowden accused Trump of similar misconduct.

“I think there might be something else going on here,” Crowley continued. “Joe Biden doesn’t even know what planet he’s on. The only person who thinks Joe Biden 24 will be the Democratic nominee is Joe Biden and maybe Dr. jill You need to find a lever to remove it.”

Rahmani said that while anything is possible, there is no point in trying to force Biden out of the picture.

“First, Biden cannot be impeached while he is president. So if he’s genuinely concerned about being prosecuted, that makes him more likely to run in 2024, not less,” he said. “Second, these developments make it less likely that either Biden or Trump will ever be charged with misuse of classified information.”
