Biden moves forward without help from Trump's intel team

By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Joe Biden says he's not worried that President Donald Trump has broken with tradition by not letting him read the ultra-secret daily brief containing the nation's most sensitive intelligence before inauguration.

Biden says he can't make national security decisions yet anyway so he doesn't need it.

National security and intelligence experts hope Trump eventually decides to share the so-called President's Daily Brief with Biden.

They say U.S. adversaries can take advantage of the country during an American presidential transition and key foreign issues will be bearing down on Biden when he walks in the Oval Office.
