During an interview with Good Morning America Tuesday morning, Vice President Joe Biden claimed he "knew nothing about the moves" to investigate General Michael Flynn.
"I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden said.
When pressed again, he attempted to clarify.
"I was aware that there was...that they asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it, and I don’t think anything else," he said.
But while Biden slightly changed his tune, he still didn't tell the whole story. His name is on the newly released list of Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of General Michael Flynn.
Further, Biden attended a telling and crucial January 5, 2017 Oval Office meeting. He was in the room when President Barack Obama informed then Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates that Flynn's phone calls were being monitored. It's obvious Biden knows more than he's letting on.
During an interview on Fox News Wednesday, Republican Senator Rand Paul weighed in on Biden's role and knowledge of Flynn's prosecution.
"This is astonishing that Vice President Biden and President Obama's inner circle were individually requesting the unmasking of a political opponent," Paul said. "This is a smoking gun if there ever was one that Vice President Biden was using the power of government, abusing that power, to go after a political opponent."
