Ron Klain to Step Down as Biden’s Chief of Staff, Was Ebola Czar in 2014, the Origin of Which Has Been Covered Up

The New York Times reports that Ron Klain will be resigning as Biden’s chief of staff: “Mr. Klain has been a singularly important figure in Mr. Biden’s administration. Having worked for Mr. Biden off and on for more than three decades, admirers say that Mr. Klain channels the president as few others can. He is seen as so influential that Republicans derisively call him a virtual prime minister and Democrats blame him when they are disappointed in a decision.” However, “singularly” may be an exaggeration given that Biden put his longtime staffer Antony Blinken in as Secretary of State.

As previously reported, Klain was appointed “Ebola czar” on October 17, 2014. The same day the Obama White House instituted a “pause on funding for any new studies that include certain gain-of-function experiments involving influenza, SARS, and MERS viruses.”
