Biden is being set up in regards to the classified documents scandal, Fox News host Laura Ingraham alleged Friday night.
Ingraham suggested this was all but confirmed, reading an excerpt from a New York Times piece that has seemingly been modified since, but nonetheless currently reads, “The decision by President Biden and his top advisers to keep the discovery of classified documents secret from the public and even most of the White House staff for 68 days was driven by what turned out to be a futile hope that the incident could be quietly disposed of without broader implications for Mr. Biden or his presidency.”
The original excerpt can be seen in the video below.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on the same broadcast of FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle,” also arguing that people around Joe Biden want to get rid of him and ensure he does not attempt to run for re-election in 2024.
“I think if you watch the news cycle, there’s a startling difference in the last week or two, particularly over the classified documents and perhaps over some of the corruption charges with Hunter Biden,” Paul said.
“They’ve been steadfast in ignoring this, you know, for years and really not reporting on it at all,” added Paul.
“If I had to guess … if we were in the boardroom of some of these left-wing media outlets, what we’d be hearing is, ‘it’s time to sort of ease him out,’ make sure that he knows that he can’t run again, in case he’s rumbling that he might run again,” Paul told Ingraham.
“I think the Democrats and those in charge of the Democrat wing of the press, I think they want to make sure that he’s pushed enough that he knows he can’t run again so they can start looking for a new candidate,” he opined.

Upon being asked if she was “upset” that she was forced to face questions with “incomplete and inaccurate information” after more classified papers came out of Biden’s personal home, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dodged the question.
“What I’m concerned about is making sure that we do not politically interfere with the Department of Justice,” she answered.
