Biden says Trump should not receive intelligence briefings


President Joe Biden says Donald Trump should not receive intelligence briefings now that he’s no longer in office.

The former president’s “erratic behavior, unrelated to the insurrection” disqualified him from receiving intelligence briefings, a courtesy typically extended to former presidents after they have left office, Biden told CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell in an interview excerpt that aired Friday.

In the clip, Biden questioned why Trump would need to receive the briefings.

“What value is giving him an intelligence briefing?” he said. “What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?”

Biden’s remarks in his first sit-down network interview as president are his strongest to date on the topic. In a previous White House briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki said the decision to restrict Trump’s access to intelligence briefings was still under review.
