Former intel chief expects many more indictments in Durham probe
Ratcliffe says documents he turned over to the special counsel show clear collusion between Hillary Clinton‘s campaign and Russians.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says he provided Special Counsel John Durham more than 1,000 documents that show among other things that Hillary Clinton‘s campaign colluded with Russia to build the Steele dossier, and he expects many more indictments in the case.
“When I became the director of national intelligence, I said, ‘Listen, I want to see all of the intelligence about this supposed Russian collusion,’ Ratcliffe Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.
“What I found was, and as you’re finding out, is there was, of course, no Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, but what I did see in intelligence documents, some of which I’ve now declassified, that there was collusion involving the Clinton campaign and Russians to create a dossier,” he added.
While Ratcliffe declassified many documents exposing problems with Christopher Steele’s dossier and the FBI handling of it, he said he provided a tranche of still classified evidence to Durham.
“I declassified the documents that we’ve talked about, but I gave John Durham over 1,000 other documents that have not yet been declassified that I know, including intelligence that goes specifically to this criminal activity that would be the basis for further indictments,” Ratcliffe explained.
The effort to promote the Clinton campaign-funded Dossier after officials knew it was false “goes to the highest levels of our government and government agencies involved,” Ratcliffe said.
“I continue to think there will be many indictments based on the intelligence that I gave to John Durham and that I have seen,” he added.
