In a bombshell letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe detailed how the Russian collusion narrative pushed by Democrats and the media was an alleged plot approved by then-candidate Hillary Clinton. Not only that, but President Obama was allegedly briefed on the matter by anti-Trump CIA Director John Brennan. The night’s presidential debate proved to be a great distraction as the broadcast networks spent their time proclaiming Joe Biden had the advantage.
While ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News were busy promoting their candidate ahead of the debate, the host for the night’s event, Fox News made sure to inform their viewers of the bombshell allegations.
“This breaking tonight, some pretty big allegations against Hillary Clinton and involving former President Obama,” announced Special Report co-anchor Martha MacCallum as they came back from commercial. “The director of National Intelligence says U.S. intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intel analysis alleging that Clinton approved a plan to manufacture a scandal against then-candidate trump in 2016 and that President Obama was aware of it.”
Co-anchor Bret Baier noted that the letter also says the claims “can’t be verified,” but correspondent David Spunt gave a rundown of the letter’s contents.
