JUMPING SHIP: Top Biden Advisor Bails…


As the Biden Administration continues to be rocked by scandals, at least one official is abandoning ship.

Joe Biden‘s chief of staff, Ron Klain, has announced he will be stepping down from his role immediately.

According to a senior administration officials, Klain has been privately letting colleagues know he was leaving ever since the November midterm elections.

This news comes as Biden’s administration is dealing with the recent classified documents scandal.

Klain has spent the entirety of Biden’s time in office as his chief of staff.

A replacement has yet to be announced.

The New York Times confirmed the rumors of Klain’s departure:

Ron Klain, the White House chief of staff who has steered President Biden’s administration through two years of triumphs and setbacks, is expected to step down in coming weeks in the most significant changing of the guard since Mr. Biden took office two years ago.

Mr. Klain has been telling colleagues privately since the November midterm elections that after a grueling, nonstop stretch at Mr. Biden’s side going back to the 2020 campaign, he is ready to move on, according to senior administration officials, and a search for a replacement has been underway.

The officials, who discussed internal matters on condition of anonymity, would not say whether a successor has already been picked or when the decision would be announced, but indicated that it would come at some point after the president outlined his agenda for the coming year in his State of the Union address on Feb. 7. Mr. Klain likely would stay around for a transition period to help the next chief settle into the corner office that has been his command post for many crises and legislative battles.

Several other news outlets have reported on the story:

The New York Post has more details on the timing of Klain’s departure:

It’s not yet clear if a successor has been chosen or when Klain plans to make the formal announcement of his imminent departure, although more information is expected after next month’s State of the Union address, the newspaper reported.
