Joe Biden’s ex-nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) said he felt like an “island” during his confirmation process, claiming the Biden administration abandoned him.

Breitbart reports:

…Chipman told the New York Times he thought there would be a “Plan B” in the event that his nomination hit trouble, but no such plan ever emerged.

Chipman looked back on the experience and said, “Either this was impossible to win, or the strategy failed.” He then added, “This was a failure.”

Biden administration officials who spoke to the NYT on condition of anonymity suggested Chipman’s nomination failed because Sen. Angus King (I-RI) made clear he would not support it. In a 50-50 Senate, the withdrawal of one vote meant Chipman would not have sufficient support to be confirmed.

King personally told Chipman that “gun dealers in Maine” did not support his nomination.

After Biden yanked Chipman’s nomination, Biden said, “We knew this wouldn’t be easy – there’s only been one Senate-confirmed ATF Director in the bureau’s history.”

It now seems that all those who are failures (or failing) from Generals & Secretaries of Incompetence, etc., are blaming old Uncle Joe for causing all of their troubles.

Instead they should be looking at the Man in the Mirror, who is really the cause of most of their issues.
