Ratcliffe: Hillary Clinton created Russian collusion hoax to distract from emails
Just a few hours before the first presidential election of 2020, National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe dropped a bomb on the Senate Judiciary Committee: Hillary Clinton created Russiagate to distract from her emails. James Comey is scheduled to testify before the Committee tomorrow.
National Review reports: “[I]n late July 2016, American intelligence agencies ‘obtained insight’ into an analysis by Russian spies, which alleged that Democratic ‘U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a plan to stir up a scandal’ against her Republican opponent, Donald Trump. The plan involved ‘tying [Trump] to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.’”
Those on the left are — of course — questioning Sen. Lindsey Graham’s motives to release the letter to the public so close to the debate’s start. But when asked why he chose to release the information, Politico reports that Graham called it, “the ultimate double standard.”
“They took the whole damn country through hell for two and a half years — and is it far-fetched to believe that the Clinton campaign would do something like this after Christopher Steele?”
Ratcliffe’s letter does claim that the “U.S. Intelligence community does not know the accuracy of the allegation;” however, this is a big win for Republicans and the president, if discovered to be true.
More details to come.
