Trump Campaign Press Release - FACT CHECK: Joe Biden Undermined the Peaceful Transition of Power in 2017

September 29, 2020

Biden was at the center of the FBI's plot to kneecap President-Elect Trump.

Vice President Joe Biden was part of the scheme to weaponize the FBI and the Department of Justice against President-Elect Donald Trump and his team.

FACT: The Obama-Biden Administration abused their power to unfairly target General Michael Flynn during the transition.

  • In a January 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting, senior Obama-Biden Administration officials including Joe Biden himself discussed the targeting of General Michael Flynn and the withholding of information from the incoming Trump Administration.

  • Requests to "unmask" General Flynn were made by many Obama-Biden Administration officials, including in Joe Biden's name, around the time that information about Michael Flynn was illegally leaked to The Washington Post.

  • In recently disclosed texts, FBI agents stated their belief that that criminal leak, which was used to fuel the Russia collusion hoax, was executed by senior White House staff.

  • When confronted on this, Joe Biden first claimed he knew nothing, then he changed his story.

FACT: The Obama-Administration used Russian disinformation from the Steele Dossier to illegally spy on the Trump campaign.

  • The FISA warrants improperly secured by the FBI to spy on the Trump campaign and jump-start the investigation were based "entirely" on the discredited and debunked Clinton-funded Steele Dossier.

  • Even after the FBI knew the Clinton-funded Steele Dossier was discredited garbage and likely included Russian disinformation, FBI officials hid that information from the FISA court, allowing their unjustified spying to continue.

  • The FBI deceptively used strategic intelligence briefings for the Trump campaign as an opportunity to spy on campaign officials.
