The remainder of President Joe Biden’s term in office may be in jeopardy as a result of CBS News’ shocking story of the several sensitive documents the president’s lawyers discovered in his possession.
Even if the president’s condition worsens, some people, like Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO), are concerned that the GOP’s general disapproval of Vice President Kamala Harris may be the safety net he needs to keep his job.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, has been mum on the potential ramifications of the November 2 revelation, claiming that the subject is under investigation and not up for official comment.
Vice President @KamalaHarris is President @JoeBiden‘s ‘impeachment insurance,’ @RepBoebert says https://t.co/EUOQn2ox18— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) January 19, 2023
Other Capitol Hill lawmakers have continued to voice their opinions notwithstanding this posture. Boebert thinks Harris might obstruct an effective impeachment procedure. The spokesman described the vice president as having a poor reputation historically.
Since she assumed the position of second in command, Harris’ approval ratings have plummeted as many Americans are dissatisfied with the way she has handled the southern border and other pressing issues.
Even if the vice president’s reputation has partially recovered, she still only has a 40% approval rating. The percentage is significantly higher than her November 2021 ratings, which revealed that only 28.9% of Americans approved of her.
The US has seen some significant setbacks recently, with residents feeling the effects of inflation and economic hardship keenly. Both Harris and Biden must accept full responsibility.
Following the discovery of sensitive records at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center and other sites, GOP members have been more critical of the vice president and his administration.
People have criticized what they see to be a double standard in the handling of this case and that of Donald Trump, pointing to the raid of the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort as evidence of the hypocrisy.
Others wonder why the news about Biden didn’t surface sooner, pointing out the potential impact on the midterm elections.
