February 6th – On the 5th local time, U.S. President Biden said in an interview with CBS News that he believed that former President Trump should no longer receive confidential intelligence briefings on the grounds that “eccentric behavior unrelated to the congressional turmoil”.
Traditionally, after leaving office, the President of the United States can continue to receive confidential intelligence briefings, although the frequency of receiving is not as frequent as that of the incumbent president.
Asked in the interview what Trump would worry about if he continued to receive confidential intelligence, Biden replied, “I just don’t think he needs it. What’s the value of giving him information? What effect does he have besides the possibility of leaking information?”
Previously, some U.S. intelligence officials worried that Trump continued to receive confidential intelligence briefings after leaving the White House, and there was a risk of leaking state secrets or even leaking them to foreign opponents.
But there are also people who don’t think so because Trump never seems to pay too much attention to confidential information.
