He is a liar. He has dementia. He is a pervert. He is soft on China. He is soft on Iran. He will appease the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. He also knew about the attempted take down of General Flynn. What else will the MSM allow Joe Biden to get away with? It’s disgusting!
‘I was aware’: Biden admits he knew about FBI’s Flynn investigation moments after denial
By Washington Examiner, May 12, 2020
After first denying that he knew anything about the FBI investigation into retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Joe Biden corrected himself when pressed during a Tuesday morning interview.
He changed course after host George Stephanopoulos noted his presence at a high-profile Oval Office meeting in the final days of the Obama administration, during which officials discussed intercepted contacts between Flynn and a Russian envoy. Disclosures about that meeting have prompted scrutiny over the former vice president’s role in the eventual ouster of President Trump’s first national security adviser.
Biden audibly scoffed on ABC’s Good Morning America as Stephanopoulos asked what the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee knew about an early 2017 investigation into Flynn and whether there was anything improper done by the Obama administration.
“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden said. “This is all about diversion. This is a game this guy plays all the time. The country is in crisis. … He should stop trying to always divert attention from the real concerns of the American people.”
But Stephanopoulos followed up, noting that Biden was reported to be in attendance at a Jan. 5, 2017, meeting where he and former President Barack Obama “were briefed” on the FBI’s plan to interview Flynn about his conversation with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.
“I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted,” Biden replied, after fidgeting with his earpiece. “I was aware that there was, that they asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it.”
The Jan. 5 meeting is known to have focused on the Flynn tapes, but it is not known whether officials discussed the FBI’s plan to question Flynn as Stephanopoulos suggested.
Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told Robert Mueller’s special counsel team she first learned of the Flynn recordings from Obama himself following a White House meeting about the intelligence community assessment attended by Yates, Biden, former FBI Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, then-national security adviser Susan Rice, and others. Obama asked Yates and Comey to stay behind with Rice and Biden when the meeting concluded.
