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.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
