Multiple former government officials on Joe Biden’s transition team or officials reportedly under consideration for a position on his cabinet, were involved in handling intelligence about former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to a report from The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross.
Weeks before the start of the Trump administration, a Biden transition team official, Stephanie L. O’Sullivan, and two potential cabinet picks, Sarah Bloom Raskin and Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, submitted “unmasking” requests for intelligence about Flynn.
“Unmasking” is a term used by the intelligence community which refers to revealing the identity of someone on a monitored communication.
According to Politico, Raskin is being considered to serve as secretary of the Treasury Department, and Sherwood-Randall is a contender to lead the Energy Department.
There were many claims of unwarranted investigations of Flynn and other Trump associates during the Obama-era.
The Justice Department’s Inspector General held the FBI responsible for misleading a federal court in order to gain access to monitor former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
According to a report from 2019, the Inspector General said that the FBI used an agent in August 2016 to gather evidence in a briefing with Donald Trump and Flynn during a briefing about foreign intelligence threats.
Republicans have questioned whether officials intentionally obtained intelligence reports that Flynn was in. Republicans have also asked for investigations into leaks of classified information regarding Flynn.
The Biden transition team has not commented on the allegations.

“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.
Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
