As President Joe Biden is expected to announce a re-election bid in 2024, the ongoing investigation into several batches of classified documents discovered in his possession could destabilize a potential campaign.
Three sets of classified documents were discovered this week at the Penn Biden Center and in two separate locations at the president’s home in Wilmington, Delaware. On Saturday, White House Special Counsel Richard Sauber revealed that five more pages of classified materials were discovered at Biden’s home on Thursday when security clearance attorneys went there.
Though many Democratic and Republican strategists believe the classified documents scandal will not have a significant impact on Biden’s re-election bid in 2024, some political insiders told Fox News Digital that it is still not an ideal situation for a president seeking re-election, especially because it exposes Biden to GOP attacks.
“It’s never a good thing when a special prosecutor is appointed. It’s not a place I’d want to be as we try to put the pieces of a re-election campaign together “said a Democratic strategist and presidential campaign veteran who asked to remain anonymous in order to speak freely.
