On November 3rd, Biden's attorneys found documents at his think tank, then more at his home then MORE at his home again leading to a special council investigation. And yet, it is stupid and hard to get worked up about.
Biden's brand is competence compared to Trump, and this erodes that. His leak-resistent inner circle has led to a lack of messaging, making it difficult to control the narrative.
