CNN’s Gangel: Biden’s Classified Docs a ‘Political Gift to Trump, Republicans’

On Monday, reporter Jamie Gangel appeared on CNN’s “The Situation Room” and discussed the reports of classified documents being found in an old office of President Joe Biden, from his time as vice president.

She declared that this serious matter is a “political gift” to former President Donald Trump and House Republicans.

CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “In that ’60 Minutes’ interview Biden did on September 18, 2022 about a month or two before these classified documents were found in his private office here in Washington, he said, ‘How could this possibly happen? How anyone could be that irresponsible? That’s what he said then, and then they discovered these SCI, these very sensitive classified documents at his private office in Washington.”

Gangel replied, “Look, I’m sure that he meant that. And it also looks terrible in hindsight because here you go, there were classified documents. Here’s what we don’t know. We don’t know how they got there. We don’t know who packed them up.

Those are things we’re going to have to find out. We need to know what’s in these classified documents. Yes, they’re Top Secret, but how sensitive is it? Are there sources and methods? Is it contemporaneous information that could be dangerous or sensitive right now? So those are the things we have to find out. Those are the things the Justice Department is looking at.”

Of course she immediately tried to shift the blame off of Biden but casting doubt as to who could have put those documents in his personal office. Who else had access to both the documents AND his office, hmm? I wonder if his son, Hunter Biden, had access to that office too…

“There’s a big political side to this. This is, let’s assume for the moment, that it was accidental, a mistake. This is the kind of political unforced error that I can’t believe Donald Trump hasn’t posted about yet. He will be shortly. It is the definition of a political gift to Trump and the House Republicans,” she added.

It’s funny that her reaction to Biden leaving important, classified information in an unsecured location is to worry about how this will “help” Republicans instead of worrying about how this could have hurt Americans.
