(RepublicanWire.org) – Dick Morris, a former Clinton advisor, believes that the classified documents scandal will have steep political consequences for the current president.
In an interview with John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable,” a radio show, Morris said, “That’s going to be the absolute end for Biden.”
He continued, “When Biden as president can’t get more than 25% of the primary vote in his own party, that’s near death. He’s so incredibly vulnerable. You’d think he’d be at 40% or 50% at the least. That means pretty much anybody that breathes on him can knock him over.”
The poll to which he referred also shows “former First Lady Michelle Obama at 16% and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at just 5%.”
In Morris’ opinion, the situation between Trump’s classified documents possession and Biden’s is not the same.
He said, “It’s different. Trump took them like mementos, like an ashtray. A letter from Kim Jong-un that he could show people … [Biden’s situation] is directly linked to a big bribery scandal involving the vice president and his son. That’s a whole other situation.”
Morris told Catsimatidis, “The issue here is not if everybody took classified documents home.”
He considers Biden’s situation very different because the uncovered documents contain “classified information about American policy toward Ukraine.”
These documents are from the time when, then-Vice President Biden was the point man on anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine while his son, Hunter, was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
Even though the mainstream media ignores the situation, Morris says, “It will knock Biden out of the race.”
In reporting on the Dick Morris interview, The Daily Wire said:
“Morris pointed out the fact that the documents — which have thus far been found at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., as well as Biden’s home and garage in Wilmington, Delaware — were located in places where the president’s embattled son Hunter may have had access to them.
“Several reports have indicated that Hunter Biden listed the Wilmington home as his place of residence in 2017 following his divorce — at which time he was still serving as a board member of Burisma and his father had already left the White House.”
It is all very concerning. Did Hunter Biden use classified information in his dealings in Ukraine? Is that how he secured a position on the board?
There have been direct accusations that Hunter used classified information in at least one of the emails discovered on his laptop.
The wording is vastly different from any of his other emails and contains language and phrases that could come from classified information.
Through White House lawyer Richard Sauber, the Biden administration said, “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.”
