The revealing admission from Biden’s National Security Adviser when asked about documents seized at Mar-a-Lago

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan admitted Tuesday that he was not briefed on the documents seized at Mar-a-Lago.

The admission raises questions, given that Sullivan is the president’s chief adviser on national security matters.

What did Sullivan say?

At the White House press conference, Sullivan was asked if he had been briefed on the situation. He confirmed that he is groping in the dark.

“I was not informed,” Sullivan said.

“The investigation is obviously being conducted by the Justice Department, which is headed by the Attorney General, who is of course a member of the National Security Council,” he said. “The Director of National Intelligence, also a member of the National Security Council, has indicated that they have been pursuing their own analysis, their own assessment.

“It is handled in these channels and not in my channel. And I was not informed,” he repeated.

The question comes after President Joe Biden revealed in his 60 Minutes interview that he was not briefed on the investigation into former President Donald Trump and alleged national security implications.

But, Biden claimed, the National Security Council is fully briefed.

“I haven’t spoken to anyone personally about this in that regard,” Biden said. “I’m sure my government is aware of all of this, and so is the National Security Council.”

He also explained of the documents seized: “I did not ask for the details of these documents because I do not want to put myself in the middle of the question of whether or not the Justice Department should take any specific action. I agreed would not tell them what to do and in fact would not tell them how to prosecute or not.

What is the meaning of his admission?

The government claims in court filings that the top-secret documents Trump allegedly kept at Mar-a-Lago could have threatened national security.

Given the seriousness of the allegations, why wasn’t Biden’s top national security adviser briefed on this potential national security leak?

And if that’s true, then why did Biden suggest that the National Security Council is fully aware of the situation when the top man on the council says he is not? And how could other members of the National Security Council be more aware of potential national security issues than the top man himself?

Unfortunately, Sullivan didn’t answer any of these questions. It’s not clear why he wasn’t informed if, as the government claims, national security could be compromised because of the former president.
