Former Head of DNI John Ratcliffe met with Durham: He’s ‘moving carefully’

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe believes there is a “criminal conspiracy” and expects “quite a few” more indictments as a result of the investigation from U.S. Attorney John Durham.

Speaking with Fox News host Bill Hemmer on “Americas Newsroom” Monday, the former U.S. Representative noted that he had met with Durham several times as he discussed the latest bombshell revelations on the investigation.

Ratcliffe recounted how he had declassified handwritten notes from former CIA chief John Brennan which showed a plan by the Clinton campaign “to create fake Russia collusion allegations or scandal” involving Trump.

“I think this pleading alleges or alludes to a conspiracy meaning two or more people in furtherance of a crime and anyone that was aware that this campaign plan was going to be falsely pitched to the FBI or the CIA or law enforcement or intelligence authorities would be subject to criminal prosecution for any number of criminal crimes,” Ratcliffe said.

“Mail fraud, wire fraud lying under oath, congressional testimony, false testimony to prosecutors. All of those things,” he added.

“So it could go broadly and deeply,” he continued, noting his own meetings with Durham.

“I think it does based on intelligence that I have seen and that I discussed with John Durham. I’ve been saying there’d be indictments before there were any and the folks that have been indicted, that does relate to intelligence that I shared with John Durham,” Ratcliffe explained.

“And based on more intelligence that has not yet been declassified, I would expect there to be, frankly, quite a few more indictments,” he told Hemmer.

“I think this conspiracy, and I do think there was a criminal conspiracy, is broad and deep. And I hope that, obviously, John Durham is moving carefully,” Ratcliffe continued. “But I would expect and anticipate based on the intelligence that I’ve seen that there would be quite a few more indictments relating to this.”
