Former acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Richard Grenell announced on Sunday that he believes that some of those involved with perpetuating the “Obamagate” scandal are due for serious jail time.
As the election draws ever closer, it’s more important than ever to release the documents pertaining to the Russia collusion hoax in order to expose those in the Obama administration that abused their power to spy on the Trump campaign.
Grenell, who spent just a few short months as DNI in early 2020, was instrumental in releasing previously-classified documents shedding light on the Russia collusion hoax.
Grenell told Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures that it’s obvious that the Russia collusion investigation was a “hoax” that “career intelligence officials” were aware of and weaponized to attack Donald Trump.
Now, it’s time for justice to be served, according to the former intelligence official.
“We now know that not only was this a Russian collusion hoax but that it was known to be a Russian collusion hoax by career intelligence officials. And that’s a really big distinction,” Grenell told host Maria Bartiromo.
“We now know that insiders in the government at the CIA, at DOJ, at FBI, they knew that this was a Russian collusion hoax, and they allowed it to go forward for a variety of reasons,” he continued. “They were convinced that Hillary would win, and they didn’t really want to challenge Goliath. They thought that their careers could be benefited if they just shut up.”
Grenell said that the “key” to the “whole argument” is that prominent former Obama administration officials such as Former FBI director James Comey and former CIA director John Brennan — among others — are “saying that they didn’t know that this was a Russian collusion hoax.”
“Their people knew, and so what we need to figure out is what level are these individuals going to go to jail,” Grenell declared. “Somebody needs to go to jail and be prosecuted first, obviously, and this is a slam dunk. They lied to the American people. They knew a truth, and they hid the truth. This can never happen again. We cannot allow our government to weaponize information to hold it back.”
