Just hours before President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are set to square off in their first debate, a letter was released by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe. It showed that the U.S intelligence admits to having learned claims from Russian intelligence that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved a plan to connect President Trump to the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
The letter was sent to Chairman Lindsey Graham in regard to information related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. The information released included Clinton’s campaign plan to stir up a scandal against the presidential candidate by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
The former Central Intelligence Agency Director had briefed Obama and other national security officials on the Clinton proposal dated July 26, 2016, in an attempt to vilify Donald Trump and claim interference by Russian security services. The specifics on the intelligence were not released but the notes do show that the Obama Administration was briefed on the information. Those claims were also forwarded to then-FBI Director James Corney and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok. The scandal was a means to distract the public from Hillary Clinton’s use of a private mail server.
Lindsey Graham spoke with CBS News and told them he is working to declassify Ratcliffe’s notes to the fullest extent possible. He’s going to question whether the September 2016 “investigative referral” to the FBI about the Clinton’s Campaign is credible or not. He clarified that he is going to work with the same attention. Intensity, and resources as allegations against the Trump team.
Ratcliffe also pushed back on the idea that he was pushing Russian disinformation.
“To be clear, this is not Russian disinformation and has not been assessed as such by the Intelligence Community. I’ll be briefing Congress on the sensitive sources and methods by which it was obtained in the coming days,” Ratcliffe said.
I think we already know that justice under the law has never applied to the Clinton’s. It’s already three years too late, but something must be done. President Trump has been talking about this for months and the media won’t even bat an eye.
“This is about PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT. We catch the other side SPYING on my campaign, the biggest political crime and scandal in U.S. history, and NOTHING HAPPENS. But despite this, I have done more than any President in history in the first 3 1/2 years!” President Trump tweeted.
We already knew a great deal about what happened and the people who were behind it, but they will never be held accountable at an appropriate level. They’ll just get awarded with CNN jobs and book deals.
