They keep finding stuff at Joe Biden’s house in Wilmington, Delaware. I’m talking secret documents, top secret documents, classified documents, and I bet if they look long and hard enough, they’re going to find Jimmy Hoffa. Just sayin’.
And while they are setting their sights on the new Rehoboth Beach House that Biden recently purchased, don’t look for much to happen with this scandal overall. And there’s a really good reason for it.
The Republicans in the Senate don’t want to impeach Biden over this.
It’s not the Democrats, it’s the Republicans. And the reason is pretty simple. Apparently, there are quite a few people that had served in the government in Washington that actually have secret, top secret, and classified documents in their possession. They recently found some in Mike Pence’s house. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg. Something tells me that when the GOP doesn’t want to go after Biden, it’s gotta be for one of two reasons. Either they are hiding something themselves and don’t want to be caught, or they want nothing to do with a K-baby Harris presidency.
And frankly, either would be easy to solve. To solve the first reason, it’s simple. Burn the damn classified, secret, or top secret documents, and flush the ashes down the toilet. The second reason is a little tougher, but you first impeach K-baby Harris for incompetence, if you can get enough Democrats in the Senate to go along with it, THEN, you can impeach Biden on this scandal after that.
But alas, neither is going to happen. Most of the Republican Senators that have been interviewed on the subject simply say that finding these documents illegally in Biden’s possession does not rise to the level of an impeachable offense. The other thing that I think is going on here is the precise reason why I’ve said all along that you don’t want to impeach anyone in the Biden administration unless you can make it stick. Impeachment has a stink to it. And it doesn’t necessarily attach itself to the accused, but to the party bringing the impeachment.
When Bill Clinton was impeached back in the 1990’s he wore it as a badge of honor. It really was anything but, and in the end, lying turned out not to be an impeachable offense. Then with Donald Trump, neither time he was impeached reached that level. And in both cases, the Republicans, and the Democrats paid the price in the House. I think that is the over-riding reason why the Republicans are looking to avoid impeachment at all cost.
And it’s a pretty good reason. Why go through the time and the expense of an impeachment trial if you know going in there is no way you are going to get a conviction? That makes no sense whatsoever. Richard Nixon resigned because it became clear to him, not only would he be impeached, but he most likely would be convicted in the Senate over the whole Watergate coverup.
And speaking of coverup, that’s really what Biden needs to focus on here. In DC, it’s not usually the crime that gets you, it’s what you do to coverup that crime that ends up biting your rear end. Joe Biden saying “there’s no there there”, when it came to finding extra documents, and nefarious reasons for having the docs in the first place, was, in fact walking very close to a coverup. And Karine Jean Pierre has either been woefully neglected in the discussions on how to handle all of this, or she is just lying through her teeth. She has contended from the beginning that there were just a few documents found in Biden’s office, but the matter is closed and they are cooperating fully. It turns out that wasn’t true at all. And now the press is clamoring for her head on a platter for not giving them the answers they want (and deserve).
Therein lies really the person that may actually pay the most for this. KJP is guilty of lying, though my personal feeling is that she doesn’t have a clue what’s being said and decided in the Oval Office on this matter. She’s at the podium struggling to give the press something, and she has nothing to give. She doesn’t want to look like she’s out of the loop, but it’s becoming painfully obvious that she is. In the end, she’s going to either resign, or the Biden administration is going to fire her…mark my words.
As for Biden himself, he’s going to be Nixon-lite when it comes to this scandal. I will say right now that I don’t think he’s going to be able to pull himself out of this nose-dive in time to run for a second term in 2024. And that opens the door for the GOP even wider than it was!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
