In the midst of all the political commentary filling up the news cycle, it is nice to hear from the few who have the professional experience to provide clarity on what is taking place.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe is one of them.
On Sunday, Ratcliffe appeared on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” saying he is expecting “many indictments” from the investigation by special counsel John Durham into the notorious Steele dossier, arguing that everyone involved in creating the file is in “jeopardy.”
Ratcliffe’s comments just days after Igor Danchenko, a key contributor to the dossier was arrested on charges that he lied to the FBI regarding his sources, one of whom turned out to be a PR executive with close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
“When I became the director of national intelligence [in May 2020], I said ‘Listen, I want to see all of the intelligence about this supposed Russian collusion,’ and what I found was — and as you’re finding out — is there was, of course, no Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, but what I did see in intelligence documents, some of which I’ve now declassified, that there was collusion involving the Clinton campaign and Russians to create a dossier,”
On Monday, Ratcliffe appeared on “America’s Newsroom” repeating Sunday’s comments that he expected “quite a few more indictments” from Department of Justice special counsel John Durham’s investigation.
Anchor Bill Hemmer said, “On these new allegations from John Durham, the special counsel, he is still at work, folks. He claims in a court filing that multiple Clinton staffers hired a technology company to infiltrate servers at Trump Tower and then at the White House in order to establish a link between Donald Trump and Russia.”
Ratcliffe said, “To remind viewers, it was in September of 2020 that the first time the public found out when I declassified John Brennan’s handwritten notes, there was a Hillary Clinton campaign plan to create fake Russia collusion allegations or scandal involving Donald Trump.
I met with John Durham in my capacity as DNI to share with him some of those documents that have been now declassified but also many other intelligence community documents that evidence what that Hillary Clinton campaign plan involved and who was involved with it that still remain classified.
This latest filing as it relates to one of Hillary Clinton’s lawyers Michael Sussman, all of these filings are details the public is now finding out as John Durham is alleging it as parts of what was the Hillary Clinton campaign plan to falsely accuse Donald Trump of collusion with Russia.”
“I would expect there to be frankly quite a few more indictments. I think this conspiracy — I do think there was a criminal conspiracy —is broad and deep. I hope that, obviously, John Durham is moving carefully. But I would expect and anticipate based on the intelligence I’ve seen there will be quite a few more indictments relating to this.”
