Susan Gordon, the former principal deputy director of national intelligence from 2017 to 2019, is requesting that President-elect Joe Biden cut off President Trump’s access to general intelligence briefings as soon as he leaves the White House.
In recent American history, every former president has received occasional intelligence briefings and access to some classified information to advance America’s national interests. Leaders in both parties consider this beneficial as ex-presidents often speak publicly at home and abroad. However, Gordon is calling on Biden to scrap this bipartisan tradition for her former boss.
The Washington Examiner’s Carly Roman reports:
Dubbing President Trump a “potential national security risk,” Gordon made the unconventional recommendation to President-elect Joe Biden, who will reserve the right to restrict his predecessor’s access upon taking the oath of office, in a Friday op-ed in the Washington Post.
“My recommendation, as a 30-plus year veteran of the intelligence community, is not to provide [Trump] any briefings after Jan. 20,” she wrote. “His post-White House ‘security profile,’ as the professionals like to call it, is daunting.”
Gordon, who left the U.S. intelligence community in August 2019, argued that Trump poses a unique security risk due to his pledge to continue to remain engaged on the national political landscape.
“Any former president is by definition a target and presents some risks. But a former president Trump, even before the events of last week, might be unusually vulnerable to bad actors with ill intent,” she said. “He leaves, unlike his predecessors who embraced the muted responsibilities of being a ‘former,’ with a stated agenda to stay engaged in politics and policy. No departing president in the modern era has hinted at or planned on becoming a political actor immediately after leaving office.”
The level of vindictiveness never ceases to amaze me. There is NOTHING to indicate a national security risk by President Trump. If anything, China Joe and the incoming administration present a much greater national security risk to our country!
In addition to everything else, Joe Biden was on the take, and may still be. There’s “the big guy” implications, Hunter’s paying half of Joe’s bills for while (where was the money from?), and the millions paid by China to the “family business.” And direct payments?
oh yes and the money Bill received for a speech in Russia and the money that went to the “fake” Clinton foundation for the transfer of the uranium mine ownership
I agree 100% with the idea that Biden was on the take. Someone needs to do a complete analysis of his tax return and income over the past 10 years.
It wouldn’t do any good, It is like conducting a vote audit, without looking at the forensics (like signatures comparison,voting history, address history, voting rolls), and other identifying evidence which determines the legality of the ballet to be counted or not before it was counted; voting machine connections to foreign governments during the election with intentions and capabilities to flip votes with hacked algorithms, with complicit election officials and courts to look the other way and cover up the corruption, and forensic evidence. The money was laundered and kicked back as legitimate from overseas. Without deconstructing the laundering scheme, a simple tax audit would make no difference/ nor show any guilt of crime.
And there’s EVIDENCE to that effect.
And biden has more thieves in his cabinet than any other president except obama
Lots of evidence! I’m surprised that Xiden was found qualified to run with the quid pro quo hanging over his head. And Ima with a prostitution charge.
Front man=figurehead=Biden. It won’t be long before President Harris straightens him out.
Joh and ho are bait and switch
doesn’t seem they investigate the character in commie world. Harris isn’t even qualified by birth but then obama wasnt either. wonder if harris records are sealed, obamas are and so is bidens what you gotta hid there.
That was probably rigged too.
I’m seriously telling you I don’t see how someone with Joe Bidens track record of getting onto bed with bad actors and his family profiting from it – well, if that ain’t a dead give away; Well, them type of bad inquires that have proof should have stopped him in his tracks like a deer in headlights.
no truer word could have been spoken
He will either get us into a war, bankrupt our businesses and suppress our freedom of speech…THOUGHT that is. Nothing to look forward to…
That’s IF he’s inaugurated. A lot can happen between now and then.
globalists and globalist puppet $oro$ and globalist puppet barry soetoro appointed all the correct criminals to the correct positions to protect all their criminals .
globalists and globalist puppet $oro$ will have their globalist puppet, chester the molester biden do (D) get us into war, bankrupt our businesses and suppress our freedom of speech .
I agree with all of you. Omg, you have covered it all. Thk you… WHERE THE HE’LL IS TRUMP ?? We need a real person at our head, someone that finally knows what they are doin and handling these American enemies…
You’re underestimating him. I’m confident (?) that Biden and Harris can accomplish all that to the delight of the leftists.
Just goes to show how many backstabbers Trump was not aware of during his term in office.
Too many to keep up with
Unfortunately he kept on too much of the Obama baggage.
Agree with de52. China Joe will sell out our country to the highest bidder. Expect he will continue to pad his pockets with the devils money.
globalists and globalist puppet $oro$ have always been the highest bidders .
Oh yeah, creepy ole bastard.
Got that right hes no president of mine
ABSOLUTELY! China joe will sell USA out!
Stand back. Do nothing. Dumbocraps will take care of you
Yes , they even said so!
Gordon has got to be kidding! What does she think Obama has been doing running his “shadow government”. He undermined. President Trump at every turn. Has Gordon so quickly forgotten General Flynn, Manafort, Page, to name a few. President has too much CLASS and dignity to behave like Obama!7
So true…and of all the Presidents, President LOVES this country and its people and wants only the best for every one of us!! He proved it by all the promises made and kept. NO other president has done as much as
he has! If any one needs to have NO access to top secret info it would be biden, obama and harris. They want to kill our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and turn this country into a communist regime. I pray that God will save us and the USA!
Thank you Sharon for your thoughtful words. The reason the Democrats want to keep our president away from any information is to help silence him for good. President Donald Trump is the best thing for this country so he has to go forever ergo the impeachment and not allowed information. So very sad to think this has come to this once great country. History repeats itself way too often. Two to three hundred years and each world leading country has fallen. Is it truly this countries fate? I pray it is not.
It will not be, don;t worry. We’ll fight harder in the next election and in 4 years we have to make sure one of our guys beats Biden!
4 years will not be soon enough. National has orders to use deadly force if they believe it is necessary and Biden isn’t in office yet. 11 million “illegal” immigrants to be come fast paced to democratic voting rolls. I could go on, but I think you will get the picture of USA’s future.
What part didn’t you learn that globalists and globalist puppet $oro$ and globalist puppet democrat criminal party and globalist puppet rino criminal party and globalist media do not need to count votes anymore, they simply create a fake number of votes that will appoint globalist puppet democrat criminal party and globalist puppet rino criminal party .
That should be easy we just half to keep them from ther fraud work.
No way in hell will shotgun joe make it for another election, I don’t think he will make it longer than the end of April at most !!
There will NEVER be another fair Election .
Totally agree. Well said!
I agree Sharon, I pray for Trump and our country every night! And day when the thought comes over my mind!
god is too busy bending his altar boys over and listening to their “confessions” and enjoying altar boys to care about your prayers .
You are disgusting! I will pray for your lost soul!
Too bad you don’t know the ONE that loves you and gave HIS life on the cross for you.
Why is the ONE that has given us so much always caught in a terrible ugly situation when He is innocent?????
god is too busy saving; globalists and globalist puppet $oro$ and globalist puppet democrat criminal party and globalist puppet rino criminal party and globalist puppet fbi CRIMINAL organisation and globalist media and globalist puppet, libby snow flake looters/rioters/arsonists/etc AND altar boy raping priests .
She is looking for a place in his cabinet .
wants a good hair sniffing no doubt
If the hag thought that poorly of the President why did she stay working for him? I tell you why she is “Deep State” plant. Another of the leakers.
Speculation but it sounds as though Ms. Gordon has something to hide. Possibly aiding and abetting the enemy?
