Joe Biden was investigated by a special counsel over documents he kept in his garage. The former vice president took many boxes of files, marked “secret,” from the White House. He improperly kept them in unsecured locations—prompting an investigation.
A DOJ-appointed special counsel looked over the files. It turns out much has been learned about Biden’s time in public office.
One alarming detail came out in the special counsel’s report. Apparently, Joe Biden once planned on stepping down from his post. According to his own notes, this one decision could have led him to flee D.C. for good.
From Washington Examiner:
Then-Vice President Joe Biden considered resigning from his post under former President Barack Obama over disagreements with the administration’s policies during the Afghanistan War, according to excerpts of the special counsel report on Biden’s mishandling of classified documents…
Biden strongly opposed the decision to send troops to Afghanistan, which was documented in several entries in the then-vice president’s notes cited in special counsel Robert Hur’s report. Biden had even sent a memo to then-President Obama that “strongly criticized” the plan in an attempt to change his mind.
Early in the Obama administration, Joe Biden considered stepping down as vice president in protest. He apparently opposed then-President Obama’s decision to send more troops to Afghanistan in 2009.
Obama and other Democrats had strongly opposed the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet it appears Obama was willing to escalate the conflict further, while Biden did not. He wrote in his notes that he considered leaving his post over the decision.
For whatever reason, the man stayed on. It is likely he never seriously considered leaving over one choice. That would have ended his political career, preventing him from going on to run for president.
The note might resonate oddly with some Americans. In it, we see a thoughtful, perhaps conscientious Joe Biden. Not the confused, angry, and near-senile man who walks in his shoes today. Many Americans voted for Biden, believing he was still that considerate moderate.
But today, President Biden is a socialist advocate whom many believe is suffering cognitive decline.
- Joe Biden once considered resigning as vice president over a decision by Obama.
- He wrote in his notes that he opposed Obama’s decision to send more troops to Afghanistan in 2009.
