“The decision on Thursday not to file criminal charges against President Biden for mishandling classified documents should have been an unequivocal legal exoneration,” the New York Times reports.
“Instead, it was a political disaster.”
“The investigation into Mr. Biden’s handling of the documents after being vice president concluded that he was a ‘well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory’ and had ‘diminished faculties in advancing age’ — such startling assertions that they prompted a fiery and emotional attempt at political damage control from the president within hours.”
Washington Post: “In essence, the report cleared Biden of any legal hurdles. But it opened — or reopened — a series of political questions.”
