President Trump Biden has officially broken his silence on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid during an interview that aired Sunday with CBS’s Scott Pelley on “60 Minutes.”
Biden said that he had not been briefed on the top-secret documents found, and that he was not warned of the raid prior to it taking place, The Daily Wire reports.
Biden hinted that his administration is aware but he is not saying, “I have not personally spoken to anyone on that– in that regard… I’m sure my administration is aware of all of that, and so is the National Security Council. But I have not.”
Biden then criticized Trump for the photos the FBI released of documents strewn about, “How one– anyone could be that irresponsible… And I thought what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods? By that I mean names of people who helped or th– et cetera. And it just– totally irresponsible.”
He continued, “I have not asked for the specifics of those documents because I don’t want to get myself in the middle of whether or not the Justice Department should move or not move on certain actions they could take.”
