DNI Releases CIA Documents on Clinton’s ‘Plan’ to Tie Trump Campaign to Russia
National Review ^ | 10/6/2020 | Mairead McArdle

Posted on 10/06/2020 3:56:34 PM PDT by simpson96

Former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s “plan” to tie the Trump campaign to Russia as a means of distracting the public from her private email server scandal before the 2016 election, according to newly declassified documents.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified Brennan’s handwritten notes along with a CIA memo showing that officials referred the alleged scheme to the FBI for potential investigation.

“Today, at the direction of President Trump, I declassified additional documents relevant to ongoing Congressional oversight and investigative activities,” Ratcliffe said in a statement.

Brennan’s notes, which were taken after he briefed Obama on the intelligence, cite “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service,” which was “alleged approved by Hillary Clinton.”

The heavily-redacted CIA memo references “an exchange discussing U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

In 2016, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee contracted Fusion GPS and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to compile the controversial Russian dossier, which purported to draw a connection between the Trump campaign and Russia and contained salacious allegations about Trump, then the Republican nominee.

The dossier was later used in applications to surveil Trump associate Carter Page. The Justice Department’s inspector general has since concluded that the FBI did not inform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the dossier was unreliable.

Take copies of these documents, fold them tightly into a couple of wads, and wrap each with barbed wire.

Then insert them as suppositories in Barr and Durham. Maybe they might notice.

They all belong at the end of a rope.

The reason it will never happen is how many people in the District of Corruption are responsible for the ineligible Kenyan from Indonesia usurping the office.

The only person I’m sure is not complicit is President Trump.

The Republic ended on Usurpation Day when BOTH parties abrogated the Constitution by swearing in a man they knew was ineligible.

The proof that they knew is the Senate Resolution for McCain where they cited his TWO citizen parents as the reason he was a natural born citizen.

They should be dripping this info on a daily basis (it should have started earlier in the year). A little here and there won't get the attention of voters, and without corresponding indictments, it's doubtful many will care.
