Former DNI Ratcliffe told Durham evidence in Russia probe enough to return ‘multiple’ indictments

Following explosive news Friday from Special Counsel John Durham confirming that Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid a tech company to spy on candidate, and later, President, Donald Trump, Fox News has learned that former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe met more than once with Durham and told him there was enough intelligence evidence to support the indictments of “multiple people” in Durham’s ongoing probe into Trump and Russia connections.

Fox sources cite a heavily redacted, declassified CIA memo, a “Counterintelligence Operational Lead (CIOL),” that was forwarded to the FBI and, specifically, to then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.

The 2016 memo, which first surfaced in October 2020, ominously reads: “This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know. To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal. It may not be used in any legal proceeding — including FISA applications — without prior approval…” According to Fox News.

With the rules spelled out, the memo then goes on to say:  “Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date. An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

Fox’s source, who is, of course, “familiar with the matter,” claims “Ratcliffe, privately, has raised concerns that the COIL was directed to Comey and Strzok.”

In another declassified document dump, Ratcliffe released handwritten notes from former CIA Director John Brennan actually briefed then-President Obama on an alleged proposal by one of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy advisers “to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”

In his latest filing, Durham states the Clinton campaign hired a tech executive in July 2016 to work with the now-indicted former campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, a posse of cyber researchers, and multiple internet companies to “assemble the purported data and white papers.”

“In connection with these efforts, Tech Executive-1 exploited his access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data,” Durham claims. “Tech Executive-1 also enlisted the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university who were receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data in connection with a pending federal government cybersecurity research contract.”

“Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” the filing continues. “In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”

By any measure, the declassified notes and memos, inside sources and Durham’s bombshell filing represent a full who vindication of former President Trump, who was forced throughout his presidency to fend off Democrat leaders’ attacks for an offense they knew he hadn’t committed.

In a statement released Saturday, President Trump said:

“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert [sic] Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia.”

“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution,” President Trump continued. “In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this.”

In response to all this damning reports, Hillary Clinton appears to be giving the middle finger to the world.

The Presidential wanna-be tweeted her latest merchandising effort, Friday: A hat that reads, “But her emails.”
