Defense Secretary Chris Miller announced a Pentagon-wide ban on cooperation with the transition of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
The move comes after the FBI released a report on how a Chinese spy named Fang Fang infiltrated the Democrat run House Intelligence Committee which was responsible for propagating the false narrative that President Trump was compromised by Russia – by sleeping with one of the Committee members, Eric Swalwell.
The Biden team was unaware of the directive. Intelligence officials said cooperation might continue after a holiday pause. The Pentagon is not known for holidays, though.
The shocking announcement came after the Navvarre report on election fraud, as well as a statement from the Director of National Intelligence questioning whether Joe Biden would ever take office.
“We’ll see if there is a Biden Administration.”
Numerous examples of election irregularities have seriously called into question the legitimacy of the November election, with illegal ballots being counted well past election day.
Miller’s move, which stunned officials throughout the Pentagon, was the biggest eruption yet of animus and mistrust toward the Biden team from the top level of US intelligence administration.
A senior Defense Department official sought to downplay the move, calling it “a simple delay of the last few scheduled meetings until after the new year.”
- “We had fewer than two dozen remaining meetings on the schedule today and next week,” the official said, adding that “the DoD staff working the meetings were overwhelmed by the number of meetings.”
- “These same senior leaders needed to do their day jobs and were being consumed by transition activities. … With the holidays we are taking a knee for two weeks. We are still committed to a productive transition.”
