Somebody might have some ‘splaining to do.
In a letter sent to Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday, U.S. intelligence reports show that Russian intelligence claims failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against [then] U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump” by connecting him to different activities performed against the DNC by the Russian government.
According to the letter:
In late July 2016, 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 [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and the Russians' hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
Ratcliffe followed up the above statement with a disclaimer that the Intelligence Community (IC) can’t vouch for the “accuracy” of the allegations against Clinton in these claims.
“The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication,” Ratcliffe noted.
Not only are the claims above insinuating major corruption by Clinton, but Ratcliffe also wrote that “U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to [then] FBI Director James Comey and [then] Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok” concerning Clinton’s approval of the aforementioned “plan.”
“On 07 September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to FBI Director James Corney and Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok regarding "U.S. Presidential 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 o f a private mail server,”” the letter read.
Where’s MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow with this news of possible Russian interference on behalf of the Clinton campaign in the 2016 election? Will we get more “Russiagate” reports from Maddow, the rest of MSNBC, CNN and the other radical media outlets?
There’s a better chance of unicorns being discovered.
