‘This was a very coordinated effort,’ he says.
During a Tuesday interview with conservative talk show host Charlie Kirk, former Trump Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told viewers the ongoing investigation by special counsel John Durham will result in more indictments.
Ratcliffe started the interview by providing a background of how the Durham team is looking into which people were behind the false claims of President Trump colluding with Russia and the Mueller investigation that followed.
“I expect there to be a lot more indictments to be forthcoming from John Durham besides the ones that have trickled out so far, and that’s based upon documents, some of which, many of which are still not yet declassified,” Ratcliffe told Kirk.
Next, Kirk asked Ratcliffe to touch on the group of five Clinton Campaign associates who have chosen to plead the Fifth Amendment in the Durham investigation.
The former DNI noted that some of the individuals are likely exercising the right to remain silent for fair reasons, but added, “There are other folks that very clearly have exercised their Fifth Amendment rights because their prior testimony jeopardizes them.”
Kirk also questioned Ratcliffe about the accusation that private contractors with security clearances shared information they retrieved from White House computers with Clinton Campaign surrogates who did not have the proper security clearances.
According to Ratcliffe, the dissemination of classified intel is only the tip of the iceberg, as he explained, “The coordinated effort here that took place in 2016 was was wide and broad. I think it involved folks in the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Party. Elected officials, media officials, folks that coordinated intelligence community officials, and on down the line.”
“I’m not saying that every single one of those folks have criminal liability or exposure,” he clarified. “I’m just saying this was a very coordinated effort. And the more and more the public finds out about some of the things that I’ve seen that remain classified, there’ll be more and more appalled by those efforts in 2016.”
Disputing those who deny the Deep State maneuvers waged against Trump were in fact a “coup” or were equal to “treason,” Ratcliffe laid out how there was a “concerted political effort” between Democrat politicians, intelligence agents and the mainstream media to mislead the American people leading up to both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections.
This interview comes as several other Durham-related news items are dropping.
On Wednesday, Senior Legal Correspondent at The Federalist Margot Cleveland accused Democrats of weaponizing the CIA against President Trump.
Information surfacing due to the Durham probe reveals the agency tracked Donald Trump’s movements to devise another collusion conspiracy theory.
Cleveland writes, “That a political enemy of Trump would provide the CIA fraudulent-by-omission data to prompt an investigation into the sitting president of the United States is horrifying.”
To make things worse, Durham says the agency knew the data was “not technically plausible,” did not “withstand technical scrutiny,” “contained gaps,” “conflicted with [itself],” and was “user created and not machine/tool generated..”
One victim of the Deep State’s political attacks, George Papadopoulos, posted to Twitter Wednesday hinting at the Italian media dropping a big story regarding Durham’s trip to Italy where he was investigating Joseph Mifsud’s involvement in the Russian collusion hoax.
“Something big is coming on the foreign spying side of Obamagate,” he wrote.
Time will tell if anyone involved in one of America’s most scandalous political schemes will ever be brought to justice.
