    On Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified and released to Congress handwritten notes from former CIA Director John Brennan as well as a CIA investigative referral to James Comey and Peter Strzok requesting that they investigate Russian knowledge of Hillary Clinton's anti-Trump collusion smear operation. Top U.S. intelligence officials were so concerned heading into the 2016 election that the Russians were aware of and potentially manipulating Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s plans to smear Donald Trump as a Russian agent that they personally briefed President Barack Obama on the matter, newly declassified Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents show....

    Four of the nation's most highly valued terrorist prisoners were secretly moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2003, years earlier than has been disclosed, then were whisked back into overseas prisons before the Supreme Court could give them access to lawyers, The Associated Press has learned. The transfer allowed the U.S. to interrogate the detainees in CIA "black sites" for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in U.S. courts. Had they remained at the Guantanamo Bay prison for just three more months, they would have been afforded those...

    The ODNI said it was concerned about 'unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information.' The Director of National Intelligence told lawmakers that his office (ODNI) will scale back in-person election security briefings to Congress in favor of written reports -- amid concerns about leaks of sensitive information. Director John Ratcliffe wrote to lawmakers, in letters dated Friday, saying the intelligence community has provided “more than 60 defensive briefings and election security updates to the U.S. Congress, including many not required by law” and more than a dozen in the last month. “While many of these engagements and products have been successful and...

    NBC 5 Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther, who made national headlines by reopening her shop during the pandemic in defiance of business closure orders by Gov. Greg Abbott, announced Saturday that she is running for Texas Senate District 30. Luther’s announcement comes after Republican activists elected Pat Fallon to replace Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe as the GOP nominee for Texas’ congressional District 4. If Fallon wins, as is widely expected, he would be ineligible to be a state senator once sworn into Congress, creating an opening for the seat in Austin.

    WASHINGTON -- State Sen. Pat Fallon was elected Saturday afternoon by 144 Republican officials from northeast Texas to replace Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe as the GOP nominee on the ballot for Texas’ 4th Congressional District, likely sending the Prosper Republican to Washington as the district’s next representative. Fallon, who represents District 30 in the Texas Senate, beat out 17 other candidates with 82 votes from the 144 voting GOP county and precinct chairs who live in the district, needing only one round to secure a majority. The chairs gathered Saturday afternoon at the Hopkins County Civic Center for...

    Deep State operatives are leaking false stories on the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts ahead of a huge release in order to control the narrative. Former Acting DNI Ric Grenell already declassified the Flynn transcripts and John Ratcliffe, who was sworn is as the new Director of National Intelligence is set to release the transcripts soon! So now the Deep State is working with the media to spin, spin, spin. NBC News hack Geoff Bennett reported on Thursday afternoon that according to a ‘former Trump admin official,’ the Flynn-Kislyak calls that Grenell declassified are written summaries of the calls, not audiotapes. Deep State...

    Richard Grenell has declassified a new batch of Russia probe documents on his way out as acting director of national intelligence, leaving the decision on whether to make those files public up to newly sworn-in Director John Ratcliffe. The documents include transcripts of phone calls that then-incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak had in December 2016, during the presidential transition period. Grenell said publicly last week that he was in the process of declassifying those files, after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., asked that he do so. Fox News has learned that the...

    The Senate intelligence committee on Tuesday approved Rep. John Ratcliffe to be the next US intelligence director. Senators approved the Texas Republican during a closed-door meeting along party lines, after he won over Republican moderates who scuttled his nomination to the same post last year. Ratcliffe still has to be confirmed by the full Senate before replacing acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, who also is U.S. ambassador to Germany and under consideration to lead the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. Ratcliffe won over skeptics, including GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, by pledging to be apolitical in the role....

    Trump's Director of National Intelligence nominee will “speak the truth to power.” If confirmed as Director of National Intelligence, Texas Republican John Ratcliffe said this week, he would not let any “outside influence,” impact or alter intelligence. His loyalty would be “to the Constitution and rule of law” and Ratcliffe would “speak the truth to power.” As Ratcliffe knows, the intelligence community has been protecting the powerful from the truth, but change is in the wind. On May 4, acting DNI Richard Grenell informed Congress that some 53 transcripts of interviews were declassified, redacted and ready for release. These include...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) quickly called on Republicans to oppose GOP Rep. John Ratcliffe's nomination to be the next director of national intelligence after Trump announced the decision on Friday. “With this nomination, President Trump has shown once again his lack of respect for the rule of law and the intelligence community. Republicans must join Democrats in swiftly rejecting the nomination of Mr. Ratcliffe," Schumer said in a statement. Trump announced via tweet that he had picked Ratcliffe, viewed as a stalwart loyalist to the president, for the top intelligence community position. Trump had previously nominated the Texas...

    Lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) kept a straight face on Thursday as he complained on the Senate floor about Republicans using an "unsubstantiated press article" to "smear" members of his staff. Rep. Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is the same person who used the debunked Steele Dossier for years to promote his Russia Collusion myth in order to smear Trump and the president's allies. Schiff also attempted to smear Rep. Nunes (R-CA), as well as current and former members of Nunes' staff, by including their personal phone records in Mr. SchiffÂ’s 300-page impeachment report. Furthermore, Schiff lied...

    While presenting the Democrats' case for impeachment on the Senate floor, lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) kept referencing 17 witnesses who testified during the House impeachment inquiry. But there were 18 of them. Schiff and the Democrats are refusing to release the testimony of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, and according to Republicans who were present during Atkinson's closed-door testimony, the reason the transcript hasn't been released is because it proves both the whistleblower and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff did not tell the truth about their contact with each other. Fox News' Maria Bartiromo interviewed Rep. John...

    A number of House GOP lawmakers are quietly expressing interest in being selected to join President Trump’s impeachment defense team as Republicans brace for proceedings to move to the upper chamber. The president wants a combination of lawyers and three to four vocal defenders in the House GOP to be on his legal team, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) recently said on the House Freedom Caucus’ podcast. The GOP members most often mentioned as potential candidates include Reps. John Ratcliffe (Texas), Jim Jordan (Ohio) and Doug Collins (Ga.). “I don't know the extent of the lobby from Capitol Hill, I think...

Twitter was indeed censoring and shadowbanning the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s twitter account, @realDonaldTrump. Twitter is still at it! In July 2018 we reported that a study by the leftist website VICE News found that Twitter is censoring top pro-Trump lawmakers. Twitter is targeting pro-Trump Republican lawmakers Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and John Ratcliffe with the...
