Ron Klain to resign as chief of staff as Biden's document scandal intensifies

 January 23, 2023

The days of Ron Klain's rule as chief of staff for President Joe Biden will soon come to an end, the longtime adviser reportedly told The New York Times this week. 

According to the Daily Caller, the resignation will reportedly happen within the "coming weeks."

The shocking announcement came at the same time that Biden and his White House face intensifying scrutiny from all sides of the political and media aisles regarding the seemingly never-ending stacks of classified documents being discovered in Biden's private offices and his residence, among other places.

While Klain and the White House are spinning his departure, many believe the document scandal played a role in his decision.

The details

Klain, sources reported, will likely wait until near Biden's State of the Union address on Feb. 7 before he leaves his post.

Klain tweeted a tribute to his boss as the announcement of his resignation came out.

Rep. Lauren Boebert implied in a tweet that if someone of Klain's gravity in Biden's orbit was jumping ship, the Bidens might be in worse trouble than they realize.

The replacement

Jeff Zients was chosen to replace Klain within a matter of days of Klain's resignation news.

The AP noted: "President Joe Biden is expected to name Jeff Zients, who ran the administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic at the start of Biden’s term, as his next chief of staff, according to two people familiar with the matter."

Only time will tell if Zients plays the same role behind the scenes that many believe Klain did.
