The Biden administration has been rocked by scandals after Americans found out President Biden secretly stashed classified documents for years next to his Corvette in his home garage.
The documents came from the Obama years. Hunter Biden, who is under federal investigation, and many others had access to the unsecured documents for years.
Amid the scandal, an inside source has confirmed that White House chief of staff Ron Klain will be stepping down as President Biden’s top aide. Klain says it’s time for him to move on after years at Biden’s side.
The source was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, but still confirmed the upcoming resignation with major news outlets on condition of anonymity.
Numerous Democratic lawmakers have found themselves turning on Biden after the FBI conducted a search and found yet more documents with classified markings at Biden’s home.

Senator Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate, said that Biden should be “embarrassed by the situation.”
Democrat Senator Joe Manchin appeared on both CNN and NBC and argued that Biden “should have a lot of regrets.”
“You just might as well say, ‘Listen, it’s irresponsible,'” Manchin explained.
Instead, Biden told reporters that he had “no regrets” over the situation.
With Klain stepping down as Biden’s Chief of Staff, his replacement will be Biden’s former COVID-19 czar Jeff Zients.

Zients served as Biden’s COVID response coordinator from 2021 through 2022.
“There is no one better at delivering results than Jeff,” Biden said at the time.
Biden says Zients has “decades of management experience to work formulating and executing on a plan to build the infrastructure we needed to deliver vaccines, tests, treatment, and masks to hundreds of millions of Americans.”
