Former Clinton adviser Dick Morris claimed on Sunday that any chance President Joe Biden had at reelection in 2024 had effectively been cut off at the knees by the still-unfolding classified document scandal.
Morris, a former adviser to Democratic former President Bill Clinton spoke about the situation with John Catsimatidis on his WABC radio show, “The Cats Roundtable,” saying, “That’s going to be the absolute end for Biden.”
Morris pointed out the fact that the documents — which have thus far been found at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., as well as Biden’s home and garage in Wilmington, Delaware — were located in places where the president’s embattled son Hunter may have had access to them.
Several reports have indicated that Hunter Biden listed the Wilmington home as his place of residence in 2017 following his divorce — at which time he was still serving as a board member of Burisma and his father had already left the White House.
Morris also addressed recent polling that indicates just one-fourth of Democrats want Biden to run again in 2024.
“When Biden as president can’t get more than 25% of the primary vote in his own party, that’s near death. He’s so incredibly vulnerable,” Morris said, adding, “You’d think he’d be at 40% or 50% at the least. That means pretty much anybody that breathes on him can knock him over.”
Morris also claimed that the contents of the documents in question could prove troublesome for Biden as well — especially if they contained anything relating to Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukraine.
“It’s different. Trump took them like mementos, like an ashtray. A letter from Kim Jong-un that he could show people … [Biden’s situation] is directly linked to a big bribery scandal involving the vice president and his son. That’s a whole other situation,” he said.
Morris’ overall assessment was simple: “It will knock Biden out of the race.”
