Bidens kampanje påsto onsdag at Biden forespørsel til e-tjensten om av-anonymisering av Flynn, ikke har noe med etterforskningen av ham å gjøre.

«These documents have absolutely nothing to do with any FBI investigation and they confirm that all normal procedures were followed — any suggestion otherwise is a flat out lie,” Biden Rapid Response Director Andrew Bates said. “What’s more, it’s telling that these documents were selectively leaked by Republicans abusing their congressional powers to act as arms of the Trump campaign after having them provided by a partisan official installed for this very purpose.»

Biden har et troverdighetsproblem.

“Joe Biden’s limp claim that he doesn’t know anything about the railroading of Gen. Michael Flynn just got even more unbelievable. Biden is listed among the Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of Flynn,» campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. «We already knew Biden was briefed on the Flynn case before President Trump took office and now we know that he wanted Flynn unmasked.»
