In a surprising turn of events, it seems that the majority of Democrats view President Biden's mishandling of classified documents as a bona-fide scandal that shouldn't be covered up by the federal government. According to a Rasmussen poll taken over the weekend, 55% of Democrats agreed that the mishandled documents constituted a political scandal.
Obviously this is terrible news for the Biden administration, but it's important that we continue the work to hold the President accountable. That starts by imploring the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the classified documents to the fullest extent. It's a vital part of our republican government that we recognize that no politician is above the rule of law.
To give you a better idea of American's views on the Biden classified documents scandal, check out this section of an article from The New York Post:
A Rasmussen poll out Monday, and exclusively revealed here, shows that almost three-quarters of voters (72%) regard the president’s handling of classified records as a scandal. That includes a majority (55%) of Democrats.
Nearly half (48%) of all voters say it is a “major scandal,” according to the national poll of 1,000 voters taken over the weekend.
But even more damning for the president is that 60% of all voters believe it is likely that information from those classified documents “was used by Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in his foreign business deals.” Fully 44% believe it is “very likely.”
Among Democrats, 36% believe it is likely that Hunter used his dad’s classified files, with more than one in five saying it is “very likely.” Not a good omen for the president’s bid for re-election.
We have to ask ourselves if we're willing to put politicians above the law, and whether or not Biden's actions mean that he's unworthy of the position of President. Until the Department of Justice acts, we'll have to keep a close eye on what could turn into the biggest political scandal of the 21st century.
