(VOFNEWS)— President Biden White House says the intelligence community will review any incoming requests for intelligence briefings from former US President Donald Trump, as has been customary for former presidents, though he has not yet made any.
In general, requests from a former President are supported by officials.
“The intelligence community supports requests for intelligence briefings by former presidents and will review any incoming requests, as they always have,” press secretary of White House Jen Psaki told CNN on Thursday.
The former president has not submitted any requests at this point. There are many ways intelligence can be presented, a senior administration official told CNN, something the intelligence community would formulate should any request come in.
Some detractors have been concerned about former president Trump’s potential access to classified information while he’s out of office.
Former Trump principal deputy director of national intelligence Sue Gordon wrote a Washington Post op-ed following the insurrection at the US Capitol in Washington that the former president “might be unusually vulnerable to bad actors with ill intent” once he’s out of office.
