Biden staffers are leaving in droves in the wake of Biden’s growing classified document scandal.
On Friday, White House Communications director Kate Bedingfield stepped down after weeks of trying to defend Biden over his classified document scandal.
Here’s a recent interview of her:
Bedingfield’s exit is the latest in the recent surge of top administration officials leaving this year.
Also this week, Ron Klain stepped down as chief of staff after two years.
As Fox News reported:
Bedingfield, a Georgia native and University of Virginia alumna, is next expected to take on a new strategic role with Biden’s as-of-yet undeclared re-election campaign.
“Since my time as Vice President, Kate has been a loyal and trusted adviser, through thick and thin,” President Biden said in a statement.
“She was a critical strategic voice from the very first day of my presidential campaign in 2019 and has been a key part of advancing my agenda in the White House. The country is better off as a result of her hard work and I’m so grateful to her — and to her husband and two young children — for giving so much. Ben has big shoes to fill.”
Classified documents scandal
As The Daily Fetched reported last month, a new CNN poll revealed 80 percent of Democrats had voiced support for the Justice Department’s appointment of a special counsel to investigate President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.
Eighty percent of Democrats, 88 percent of Republicans, and 84 percent of independents support the special counsel.
A special counsel was appointed after the scandal was leaked to the public on January 9.
The DOJ and White House were aware of the scandal for weeks, but the public remained in the dark.
Biden’s personal attorneys found the documents on November 2, a few days before the midterms.
The White House and DOJ have failed to provide reasons or cause as to why Biden’s attorneys were initially searching for the classified materials.
