Matt Gaetz, the de facto Speaker of the House, recognized the Corvette Classified Documents scandal for what it is: a Democrat takedown of their own president.
Gaetz told Fox, “There's an element to this that feels like the Democrats are taking out Joe Biden. I don’t know that that’s the case, but I don’t know that it’s not. But just as Joe Biden is hardening the cement around his decision to run for president again, they start looking for what classified documents might have been tucked away eight years ago.”
That Democrats would take Biden out two years into his presidency seemed baked in the cake three years ago when Jim Clyburn lifted the guy out of the political Dumpster, brushed him off and gave him the South Carolina primary. That is the only Democrat primary that matters because black voters dominate it. That primary rescued and made Obama the nominee in 2008, ditto Hillary in 2016 and ditto Biden in 2020. Given that one in four Democrat votes are from black voters, that makes perfect sense.
