Released information of Clinton corruption is the gift that keeps on giving; if only their actions weren’t so poisonous for our country. The latest bombshell is that Hillary Clinton personally signed off on the Russiagate farce to distract attention from her email scandal, according to a Russian intelligence analysis that was obtained by U.S. intelligence agencies in July 2016” reports the National Review.
The allegation comes from National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe who wrote a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC). The letter “asserts that in 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.”
Furthermore, that plan involved “tying [Trump] to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.” Ratcliffe’s letter also states “the U.S. intelligence community ‘does not know the accuracy’ of the allegation that Mrs. Clinton personally orchestrated the collusion scandal; nor can our agencies say whether the Russian intelligence analysis in question is disinformation. Nevertheless, this allegation about Clinton’s role was obviously known to the Obama administration at the time” writes National Review.
Ratcliffe also mentions handwritten notes from former CIA director John Brennan show that Brennan:
Briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials about the intelligence, including the ‘alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26. 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.
National Review helps to “put this information in context:”
Mrs. Clinton was cleared of criminal charges in a July 5, 2016, press conference by then-director Comey. This prompted outrage over whether the Obama administration had distorted the criminal law applicable to mishandling classified information in order to give Clinton a pass. The email scandal would dog Clinton throughout the campaign.
Less than three weeks after Comey’s press conference, on July 22, the hacked DNC emails began being published. On July 25, the 2016 Democratic National Convention began in Philadelphia. “By that point, former British spy Christopher Steele had been commissioned by the Clinton campaign…to compile research tying Trump to Russia.” However, Steele’s London-based company worked with Russian oligarchs.
One of Steele’s most heavily used sources was Igor Danchenko who was investigated by the FBI from 2009-2010 on suspicion of being a Russian spy. “Days after the hacked DNC emails began being published, Steele generated a dossier report alleging that Trump was in ‘a well-developed conspiracy of cooperation’ with ‘Russian leadership” reports National Review. It all matches up just a little too perfectly.
