The White House and Democrats seem to be a bit confused about how to present the classified documents that were found at Biden's office and house.
Rather than simply owning up to the mistake, we are starting to see quite a bit of spin.
To me, this is as though the White House and Democrats are testing out some narratives to see what the public will buy.
The White House is testing out the narrative that the documents were "inadvertently misplaced."
Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, stated, "We are confident that a thorough review will show that these documents were inadvertently misplaced, and the President and his lawyers acted promptly upon discovery of this mistake."
You better believe that narrative was put in the ear of Merrick Garland already.
Yes, they were accidentally placed in Biden's office cabinet and in a box in his garage by his Corvette.
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) is trying something else out.
He stated, "Alleged classified documents showing up allegedly in the possession of Joseph Biden… I'm suspicious of the timing of it.
"I'm also aware of the fact that things can be planted on people... things can be planted in places and then discovered conveniently.
"That may be what has occurred here. I'm not ruling that out.
"But I'm open in terms of the investigation needs to be investigated."
You want my take on this? It sounds like Biden is taking a page out of Trump's playbook on this one.
Trump was the master at getting multiple statements on an issue into the media to see which one was the most accepted, then that became the narrative they pitched once Trump spoke on it.
So far, not a single narrative even remotely makes sense, especially regarding the documents that were found at the Penn Biden Center.
This whole thing stinks to high heaven… and I am fairly confident when all is said and done, Biden will not even end up getting slapped on the wrist over this.
