New revelations about the possible motives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in meeting with then-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn in January 2017 raise questions about then-Vice President Joe Biden’s role.
“Rice’s memo — written on Jan. 20, 2017, her last day in office — documented that the meeting took place, and included Obama, Biden, Rice, Comey, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates,” Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News, reported. “Comey later told MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace about the meeting at greater length in a lecture at the 92nd Street Y in December 2018.”
COMEY: We came up January the 6th, the Friday, to brief the president-elect and his incoming team. The day before, we had been in the Oval Office with President Obama and his senior team. … And we went to brief him and General [James] Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, briefed President Obama and Vice President Biden, and laid it all out. … And then General Clapper said, “There’s some additional material, that is of a difficult nature, and we’ve decided that we have to brief the incoming president about it; it involves sexual allegations, an allegation that he was involved with prostitutes in Moscow, that images of that were captured by the Russians, so they’d be in position to coerce the incoming president, and we think we have to tell the incoming president. And President Obama looked at General Clapper straight ahead, and said to him, “What’s the plan for that briefing?” And Clapper looks at me and goes, “Well, Jim is gonna do it.” [Laughter] … President Obama turned slightly, without changing his facial expression, to me, and raised and lowered both eyebrows, like a Groucho Marx thing. And in that moment, I heard, in my head, “You poor bastard.” … So the next day, we’re up here, at Trump Tower …
Biden was either in on the plot to frighten Trump with the (false) Steele dossier, which provided the pretext for leaking it; or he failed to object to the plot as discussed by Obama & Comey. Either way, by his own admission, Biden was in the room Jan 5 2017 when they planned it. https://t.co/jgKqpDM33A— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) April 30, 2020
Flynn’s lawyer made a great point on @marklevinshow: @JoeBiden was at the Oval Office meeting January 5th when @Comey was dispatched with his mission to brief President-elect @realDonaldTrump on the “pee dossier” (and then leak it). What did Biden know? (Assume he won’t remember) https://t.co/YnVO9aQrDG— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) April 30, 2020
SUSAN RICE authored a suspicious email sent to herself just moments before Trump was sworn in as president.— Matt Wolking (Text TRUMP to 88022) (@MattWolking) April 29, 2020
The email documented a meeting with JOE BIDEN and OBAMA and JAMES COMEY from more than two weeks before.
Part of the email is still classified. https://t.co/FHsww1YMom
