President Biden is engulfed in a scandal that could potentially end his presidency. As reporters reportedly asked the president questions concerning his classified documents, he ignored them.
After a tough week for the Biden administration, reporters have stumped Joe Biden with questions surrounding classified docs the president kept after his tenure as vice president.
Consequently, his administration has attempted to steer reporters away from further investigating the matter.
As Biden held a photo-op with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in the Oval Office, reporters asked him about the ongoing investigation into the classified documents. In response, the president smirked and ignored the questions.

Upon the two presidents shaking hands, the White House press pool shouted questions at the U.S. president regarding the documents that have been the source of the ongoing scandal.
At first, the president smirked at the journalists as they questioned him. Then, as the reporters were being taken out of the Oval Office, Biden responded, “Don’t get hurt, fellas.”
“It was as obnoxious a display of arrogance as Biden has put on since he took the oath of office,” The Western Journal said of his comments.
Over the last week, Biden’s administration has been put in the spotlight by the classified documents scandal. More so than the administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021.
It is entirely possible that Biden’s staff is urging him to refrain from answering questions regarding the scandal.
Additionally, the president’s son Hunter Biden has also found himself in troubled waters as an ongoing investigation is going into his business dealings abroad.
House Republicans have vowed to investigate Hunter Biden, effectively shining a light on the corruption of the Biden family.
As evident as the scandal is, it is unlikely that President Joe Biden will face prosecution considering the two-tiered justice system in the United States.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has assigned a special counsel to investigate Biden’s case.
The AG has assigned Jack Smith to investigate former President Donald Trump for the same crime as Biden.
Upon the end of Trump’s presidency, the former president took classified documents to Mar-a-Lago and stored them in a safe. A president has the ability to declassify any documents of their choosing.
In contrast, President Biden illegally kept classified documents from his vice presidency in his garage.
Biden’s scandal has called into question the validity of the investigation into the former president, as Biden’s use of classified documents is a much bigger deal and clearly illustrates the weaponization of the justice system against conservatives.
