Former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a press conference on Monday that while he is not receiving an intelligence briefing because he is not president, his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), uses his placement in the United States. State Senate Special Committee on Intelligence to Obtain Classified Information.
Speaking in front of a blue background emblazoned with the slogan ‘Office of the President-elect,’ Biden said, “And uh, that would make the president’s participation a lot easier, you have a number of Republicans suggesting that…. “
“The good here is that my colleague is still a member of the Intelligence Committee, so she gets the intelligence briefings,” Biden said, turning and smiling in Harris’ direction. “I don’t have any more, so uh, uh, uh, that uh, that is to say, but there are a number of Republicans calling for that.
Biden’s remarks raised concerns about the legal implications of using Harris on the Senate Intelligence Committee to route classified information to private citizens, as Biden appeared to imply at the press conference.
Despite standing in front of the backdrop of the “President-Elect’s Office,” the Biden-Harris campaign is secretly seeking to raise $ 30 million from donors to fight Trump’s lawsuits over electoral integrity, as National File reports:
Emails from the Democratic National Committee and the Biden Campaign were sent to donors last week asking for help to “revive our Biden Fight Fund” to “make sure Trump doesn’t win them just because we don’t. don’t have the funds to fight back. “
“The crises facing our country are serious, from climate change to racial injustice,” the letter reads. “We need to step up NOW and donate and raise the funds we need to have the funds to make sure the Biden Harris transition team has the money they need to stay on track and be ready.” the day of the inauguration January 20, 2021. “
“Due to the $ 5,000 limit, we need EVERYBODY to focus on collecting that money now,” the email pleaded, adding that the Biden and DNC campaign “wouldn’t ask if we didn’t really need $ 30 million to be able to fund the upcoming legal work – we can’t run out of resources now, which is why we need to fill that fund ASAP.
The office of Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe confirmed last week that Biden will not receive high-level information on national security because the General Service Administration has yet to determine the winner of the 2020 election.
