MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough has warned “bumbling and stumbling” President Joe Biden that he needs to “clean up” the classified document scandal by being truthful with the American people.
As Slay News has reported, Democrats and their allies in the media have started to call out Biden over the mounting scandal.
On Saturday, a third batch of classified documents was found in Biden’s private possession.
The situation has forced Attorney General Merrick Garland to launch a special counsel investigation into the documents’ handling.
“What’s going on here?” Scarborough said in response.
“The stumbling and bumbling around over the past month or so has been pretty extraordinary since November when they first started discovering these documents.
“They’ll have a press conference and say, ‘Well, we think that’s it. We don’t think there are any more.’
“They don’t know. They haven’t known. What’s happened here?
“I guess, again, transparency, I think, works best for the Biden administration.
“And it works best for Biden himself because they find the documents, they report it immediately, a far different situation than Donald Trump’s.
“Anybody who says it’s not is a political hack.
“It’s very clear to see, politically and legally, that there is a huge difference in the two cases.
“And yet Biden’s own worst enemy has been the way Biden’s staff and the way the Biden team has run this.
“What’s going on?”

MSNBC analyst Jonathan Lemire said:
“Yeah, it’s an important place to start just to underscore the differences between the Biden and Trump cases.
“There’s real frustration among Democrats.
“It’s the drip, drip, drip that’s the problem right now.
“It’s a story they can’t totally seem to get their arms around.”
“By stumbling and bumbling around, by not getting their timeline right, by still saying, — we just showed a graphic that says, ‘an unknown number of documents found in Biden’s garage.’
“No more unknown. No more unknown.
“At this stage, we’re two months in.
“They need to clean this up.
“They need to get, you know, amateur hour is over.
“They need complete transparency, and they just mishandled it from day one,” he said.
Flashback!@JoeNBC: “I made it very clear over the past several years, that we can’t send the message out that one man is above the law … the law would suggest [Trump] should be indicted” for mishandling classified materials. pic.twitter.com/jfcbMqM9oR
