Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe just declassified documents alleging that the origin of the Russian collusion hoax against then-candidate Donald Trump in July of 2016 was hatched by the Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton.
Allegedly, then-Candidate Clinton, under investigation for using private email servers to conduct business that included classified information, floated the idea back in July 2016 that has since dogged President Trump, ensnarled the US in a tangled web of lies, ruined lives, and national and international humiliation.
If the allegations are true, President Trump was right when he said that Hillary Clinton would do anything to win the 2016 election. It seems that the scheme to tie Trump to Russia was hatched in the fevered and deceitful brain of Clinton to deflect attention from her own scandals She needed something to distract the voting public and so the Russian collusion lie was born.
Ratcliffe informed Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in a letter revealing the declassified information:
In late July 2o16, U.S. intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extend to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.
President Obama was briefed by CIA Director John Brennan according to Brennan’s own handwritten notes.
According to handwritten notes, former Central Intelligence Agency Director Brennan subsequently briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence, including the ‘alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.
Finally, the matter was referred to FBI Director James Comey and the FBI:
On 07 September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok regarding ‘U.S. President candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”
Strangely, Hillary Clinton was not investigated, Candidate Trump was. Of course, after months and years of investigation, there is no evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton.
The Intelligence Community let the American people down by giving Clinton a pass. People like James Comey, John Brennan, Peter Strzok, et. al., need to be held accountable before Americans can trust the IC again.
