other than the fact he might slip and say something?”

That’s not true. One of the things Trump campaigned on in 2016 was keeping a tight lid on intelligence information. He deplored the fact that almost all previous presidents gave press releases on what their next move would be. Trump was totally against that. That’s why he was able to take out soleimani. And this is rich coming from someone who confuses his sister for his wife, where he’s currently giving a speech, what office he’s running for, or what state he’s in. Biden’s the last person you’d want to have intelligence. And I’d speculate and bet that Biden does indeed receive “intelligence” briefings from those around him. Who can forget a couple of weeks ago when Biden was signing EOs at record pace—when the lady standing at the side of the desk put a document in front of him to sign and he said, what am I singing? And without getting an answer he signed it anyway. That’s real intelligence.

Trump belittled and ignored his intelligence briefings for 4 years, unless the information was what he wanted to hear. There is absolutely zero benefit or purpose in allowing Trump access as a former President, and he is without a doubt a security risk. Selling classfied information to foreign governments/leaders is something I would absolutely not put past this traitor.

Very good and smart decision!

Trump is out, gone, finished!

Two surprises in this statement. Number one I was surprised to hear former Presidents received any kind of classified information after their term or terms of office were over. I see absolutely no reason for this. The fewer who are allowed to see classified material the better. But maybe the even bigger surprise is that Mr. Trump is even interested in such briefs. It would seemingly be a change from his disinterest in intelligence briefs or much of anything else the intelligence community had to say while he was in office.

Another American tradition disrespected.

Tit for tat.

Another American tradition disrespected.

Yes like the losing president conceding to the winner and congratulating him.

According to a book released by an ex KGB agent, Trump was a Soviet/Russian asset for 40 years. Explains his attitude over Putin.

Look, if you want to believe that, it's your right. I believe Oswald didn't kill Kennedy so and the KGB killed MLK

Ok, LOL

Benedict Donald will sell top secrets to any foreign bidder to make a buck. Don’t tell this narcissist anything.

Give the oligarchs more information? Or others...Proud Boys. Kim. Etc....for a buck and a fake vote, Trump will do anything.

Agree with Biden, the former idiot in chief, who questionably read or didn't read important documents, anyways, doesn't need classified information. Not only for what he may divulge to foreign powers, he was a big part of the insurrection, and anyone who causes acts of a traitor within our borders should not get anything to further hurt our democracy.

So glad there's actual reason for intelligence being relayed to Joe Biden who can comprehend and make decisions based on critical thinking. And yes, Trump could not comprehend what was being told to him, making him completely unfit to be president. It's been a dark hole for the unhinged years, but we see the light for a better USA and world.

Very good point. He’s facing a lot of court cases and needs cash.

I don't think Mr. Trump would try to sell secrets but he would blab them to people to show how much he knows and how important he still is. I don't think he's that stupid to try to sell them and the FBI is pretty good at catching such things. I'd be surprised if they aren't keeping an eye on just that.
