Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe dropped another Russia collusion bombshell on Washington, D.C. Tuesday, by releasing the contemporaneous 2016 notes of then-CIA Director John Brennan. Those notes detailing how he briefed President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s plot to frame then-candidate Donald Trump with the Russia collusion hoax. But predictably, it fell with a thud on the evening newscasts of ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News.
Between the perpetuation of their mental meltdown over President Trump’s apparent recovery from coronavirus and celebrating their 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden, the networks were not in the mood to cover the emerging scandal. But luckily, Fox News Channel’s Special Report was on the case.
“The director of national intelligence has declassified documents today revealing former CIA Director John Brennan brief then-President Obama on Hillary Clinton's purported plan to smear then-candidate Trump in 2016,” anchor Bret Baier announced ahead of the report by chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel.
The top of the report featured excerpts from the notes that blatantly spelled out Hillary’s 2016 election plot.
