The 2024 election took a significant turn.
Democrats are trying to figure out what is going on.
And a resignation shocker came in the form of this Joe Biden leak.
Chief of Staff Ron Klain’s been with Joe Biden since his vice-presidential days.
But in the latest sign that Biden’s own party and government turned on him in an attempt to force him out, Klain leaked to The New York Times that he would resign in the coming weeks.
The New York Post reports:
Ron Klain, the White House chief of staff who has steered President Biden’s administration through two years of triumphs and setbacks, is expected to step down in coming weeks in the most significant changing of the guard since Mr. Biden took office two years ago.
Mr. Klain has been telling colleagues privately since the November midterm elections that after a grueling, nonstop stretch at Mr. Biden’s side going back to the 2020 campaign, he is ready to move on, according to senior administration officials, and a search for a replacement has been underway.
The officials, who discussed internal matters on condition of anonymity, would not say whether a successor has already been picked or when the decision would be announced, but indicated that it would come at some point after the president outlined his agenda for the coming year in his State of the Union address on Feb. 7. Mr. Klain likely would stay around for a transition period to help the next chief settle into the corner office that has been his command post for many crises and legislative battles.
Every poll shows a majority of Americans — as well as Democrats — do not want Joe Biden to run for re-election.
But Democrats were helpless to push Biden out after the party performed better than expected in the midterm elections.
However, Joe Biden stealing classified documents and keeping them hidden for six years provided wary Democrats their opening.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate Joe Biden.
Elected Democrats such as Senators Debbie Stabenow and Raphael Warnock as well as high-profile members of the House like Ilhan Omar and Adam Schiff applauded the decision and did not defend Biden.
Reliable supporters in the media like CNN’s Jake Tapper mocked Biden for stashing classified documents in a box in his garage.

Joe Biden is unpopular; Americans do not want him to run for re-election because they can tell he’s in severe cognitive decline, and the economy looks headed for a nasty recession.
Democrats believe their best chance for victory does not include Joe Biden at the top of the ticket.
And the party could be taking a collective action to select a new candidate in 2024.
