Joe Biden Reportedly Involved in Controversial Early Stages of 2016 Russia Probe

NEW YORK — Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

The number of Obama administration officials who were allowed access to the Russia intelligence was also highly limited, The Post reported. At first only four senior officials were involved, and not Biden. Those officials were CIA Directir John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey. Their aides were all barred from attending the initial meetings, The Post stated.

The circle of those who attended the secretive meetings on the matter soon widened to include Biden, The Post reported (emphasis added):

The secrecy extended into the White House.

Rice and White House homeland-security adviser Lisa Monaco convened meetings in the Situation Room to weigh the mounting evidence of Russian interference and generate options for how to respond. At first, only four senior security officials were allowed to attend: Brennan, Clapper, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and FBI Director James B. Comey. Aides ordinarily allowed entry as “plus-ones” were barred.

Gradually, the circle widened to include Vice President Biden and others. Agendas sent to Cabinet secretaries — including John F. Kerry at the State Department and Ashton B. Carter at the Pentagon — arrived in envelopes that subordinates were not supposed to open. Sometimes the agendas were withheld until participants had taken their seats in the Situation Room.

Maybe he will suspend his campaign so that he can spend more time molesting children.

I’m thinking Biden is involved in a lot more than that. The billions that went to his son from China and Ukraine (and who knows where else?) was no doubt distributed around to top people.

Years ago when naval ships captured enemy ships, the ships and and their contents were sold and the proceeds were divvied up. The crew of the victor ship received a percentage, the captain got his cut, the commodore, admiral, and on up, all got their share.

My opinion is that the graft of today is handled in the same manner and is on its way to being exposed.

It looks like the linked article you posted is different than your excerpt but I could be wrong. Its been a long week. What I find interesting is the WaPo might have know about Biden but refused to investigate further.
From the linked article

Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. That tidbit was contained deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017 in which the newspaper also detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.

For whatever of a dozen reasons, Uncle Creepy will be forced out of the race long before the election.

was no doubt distributed around to top people.

Excellent observation.

(A) Obama and Kerry did the shakedown,
(B) Biden pere and fils traveled to and fro to pick up the billions, and,
(C) they set up the money laundries to pay people off.

I also have a nagging suspicion that the Clinton Foundation was involved. Billybobo had that "pass-through" account.......
Money deposited in the AM was out by the PM without a trace. It could have gone anywhere:
hedge fund, equity fund, offshore account, another foundation.....etc.
