Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, under President Donald Trump, said on Fox News’ “Americas Newsroom” Monday that he would “expect and anticipate” … “quite a few more indictments” to come from Special Counsel John Durham‘s investigation.

On February 11, 2022, Special Counsel John Durham filed the government’s motion to inquire into potential conflicts of interest in the Michael Sussmann case — alleging that lawyers from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016 had paid to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower and later the White House, in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to bring to federal government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia.

“I think this pleading alleges or alludes to a conspiracy, meaning two or more people in furtherance of a crime and anyone that was aware that this campaign plan was going to be falsely pitched to the FBI or the CIA or law enforcement or intelligence authorities would be subject to criminal prosecution for any number of criminal crimes,” John Ratcliffe said.

He clarified: “Mail fraud, wire fraud lying under oath, congressional testimony, false testimony to prosecutors. All of those things, so it could go broadly and deeply. I think it does, based on intelligence that I have seen and that I discussed with John Durham”.

Asked if he can say that more indictments are indeed coming, Mr. Ratcliffe replied, “I think there should be. … I’ve been saying there’d be indictments before there were any, and the folks that have been indicted, that does relate to intelligence that I shared with John Durham. And based on more intelligence that has not yet been declassified, I would expect there to be frankly, quite a few more indictments.”

“I think this conspiracy, and I do think there was a criminal conspiracy, is broad and deep. And I hope that, obviously John Durham is moving carefully. But I would expect and anticipate, based on the intelligence that I’ve seen, that there would be quite a few more indictments relating to this,” he added. Video Below

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s remarks:

John Ratcliffe declassified two heavily redacted Russia-related documents in October 2020 when he was the former director of national intelligence, including handwritten notes from former CIA Director John Brennan, which revealed he briefed then-President Barack Hussein Obama in 2016 on an unverified Russian intelligence report.

The report claimed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton planned in July 2016 on tying then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia’s hack of the Democratic National Committee to distract from her improper use of a private email server, Swamp Drain reported.

According to the declassified notes, Brennan and the U.S. intelligence community knew months prior to the 2016 election that the collusion smear was the result of a campaign operation hatched by the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, as reported by The Federalist. 

“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED],” Brennan’s notes read. “CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton 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.”

U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton purportedly approving “a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections” in order to distract the public from her email scandal. That referral was sent to then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok, Swamp Drain reported. Continued Below

Rodney Joffe (identified as Tech Executive-1 in the Michael Sussmann indictment and in the latest filing discussing the conflict) exploited proprietary – and perhaps classified – data provided by DARPA to further their own political attacks, and how that might result in charges. It was later confirmed that two former DARPA employees have given grand jury testimony.

According to Durham, Joffe and his associates exploited internet data from “the Executive Office of the President of the United States” to further their own political agenda. They had come to possess this data as part of a “sensitive arrangement” with the U.S. government.
