White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain is reportedly coming under fire as the Democratic Party and some in the Biden administration look to assign blame for the president's anemic first year in office.
A lengthy Politico article details how moderate Democrats have reportedly been complaining that Klain is "overly deferential" to the more liberal wing, and have said privately he should be replaced, with second-guessing coming from the party and the administration.
"He was going to govern from the center, he was going to work with Republicans," one lawmaker grumbled to the outlet. "And to have a chief of staff that apparently has decided that he’s going to be Bernie Sanders, I think that's confusing. It’s just not helpful."
That lawmaker had also reportedly called for Klain to be fired in the fall, when Democrat infighting was at its peak. The outlet said that while Klain has his defenders, others believe he has not shouldered enough blame for the problems that have dogged the administration.
