It wasn’t President Joe Biden’s fault that he Left classified documents CNN wants to tell you about the sprawling scene in the Acela corridor, where he was left as vice president. He was too busy to work up until the final minute of Obama’s presidency, and was a victim of his own doing. Legacy media Outlet Friday in a puffpiece of all puff pieces
It took four to write this article. “journalists” CNN allows you to write Start Let’s explain that “The early days of 2017 were a whirlwind for Vice President Joe Biden: swearing in a new Congress, a surprise Medal of Freedom, a speech at Davos and one final trip to Ukraine.”
His staff were torn between shutting down the office or keeping it running for their boss.
“Those competing objectives – to use his office until the final minutes even as it was obliged to shut down – made for a muddled and hurried process that left aides packing boxes of documents and papers late into the night, even as more material kept arriving,” CNN observed.
The aides tasked with sorting out Biden’s personal and professional effects must have made a simple mistake in the last weeks. They placed the documents in the wrong place. That’s likely true, but it doesn’t really forgive the fact that Biden took the documents in the first place. Unlike a president, the veep doesn’t have the same broad declassification powers, so nobody can argue the files were actually declassified.
CNN tries to portray Biden as positively as possible throughout the article.
“Former aides and others familiar with the process of Biden’s transition out of government service describe a serious effort to follow the law made difficult by an unusually active final stretch,” It is quite possible that some papers were lost in the shuffle, as the piece states.
The piece is replete with excuses and gratuitous detail about Biden’s public service on behalf of the American people in the waning days of Obama’s second term.
“In just the final five days of his vice presidency, Biden met in Kyiv with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and in Switzerland with Chinese President Xi Jinping. He spoke by phone with the prime minister of Iraq two days before leaving office,” The claims of the article. “And earlier in the week he held calls with the president of Kosovo and the prime minister of Japan. As his team worked in Washington to ensure all the classified material in his offices were properly packed and submitted to the government, more classified documents continued to arrive.”
It is possible to reduce the article’s nearly 21,000 words to only two or three sentences.
It also glosses over that the Biden team had six months after leaving office to go through the documents with the help of the General Services Administration.
In that case, the question isn’t really how did this error happen in the final weeks, it’s why didn’t the Biden team find the papers in the following six months after leaving the vice presidency?
The anonymous aides never explain what happened from January 2017 – July 2017.
Instead, CNN gave Biden a column to throw at the supposed non-partisan network “lower-level” While putting staff under the bus, the current president is portrayed as a regular. “world’s best boss” Michael Scott “The Office.”
Scott shared with David Wallace his greatest weaknesses in a memorable scene. “I work too hard, I care too much, and sometimes I can be too invested in my job.”
Scott was confused and had to explain his situation to his boss. “weaknesses are actually strengths.”
And that’s what CNN wants you to believe about Biden. His greatest strength is also his greatest weakness — he worked too hard as veep — which explains why he walked out of the White House in 2017 with classified docs.
