No charges but political peril for the 81-year-old  President  Biden.

This is Greg C. Truax with OnThePoint.

The special council’s report concludes that “no criminal charges are warranted” for President Biden’s careless handling of classified documents, but also said that the president was a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

The President’s age is now a political vulnerability.  

An earlier NBC News poll reveals a profound concern among 76 percent of registered voters about President Biden’s mental and physical health. It’s a worry echoed by half of the Democrats surveyed.

Biden’s mix-ups continue.

He recently  confused the late François Mitterrand, the former French president, for French President Emmanuel Macron.   

At two campaign events he mistakenly referred to former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl,  who died in 2017, instead of former Chancellor Angela Merkel.
