Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe predicts more indictments will come from classified documents from special counsel John Durham's investigation.
"The coordinated effort here that took place in 2016 was wide and broad," Ratcliffe told the Charlie Kirk Show last week, The Epoch Times reported. "I think it involved folks in the Clinton campaign, in the Democratic national party, elected officials, media officials, folks that coordinated — intelligence community officials, and on down the line."
Durham is involved in two active prosecutions stemming from his Trump-Russia collusion probe. Former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussman faces an upcoming trial after Durham charged him with lying to the FBI. Durham charged Russia analyst Igor Danchenko late last year with five counts of lying to the government.
"I'm not saying that every single one of those folks have criminal liability or exposure," Ratcliffe said during his interview with Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA.
"I'm just saying this was a very coordinated effort, and the more and more the public finds out about the things that I've seen that remain classified, they'll be more and more appalled by those efforts in 2016," he said.
The Clinton campaign, Democratic operative John Podesta, campaign manager Robby Mook and law firm Perkins Coie filed requests last week to intervene in Sussman's trial.
The Clinton campaign gave money to Perkins Coie, which then paid Fusion GPS for opposition research on alleged Trump-Russia ties during the 2016 election.
