Former Vice President Joe Biden can’t say he knew nothing about the unmasking of Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn if he was one of the unmaskers, President Donald Trump said Wednesday.
Biden was one of several Obama administration officials whose name appears on the declassified list of officials who requested the unmasking. Also listed are former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
“The unmasking is a massive thing,” Trump said during a cabinet meeting with the governors of Colorado and North Dakota. “Who can believe a thing like this? I watched Biden yesterday on ‘Good Morning America’ being interviewed by one of your colleagues, George Stephanopoulos, and he said he knew nothing about anything. He has no idea.
“He knows nothing about anything, nothing at all, and then it gets released today that he was a big unmasker. So how do you know nothing if you are one of the unmaskers? It is one of the very big stories, and I suspect you'll have, if it’s possible, even bigger stories coming out,” the president said.
