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.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
