Years after Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion probe fell to pieces, Americans are still learning the details of how Hillary Clinton conspired with the FBI — and ironically, Russia — to sabotage Donald Trump’s successful 2016 campaign, and undermine his presidency.
According to the Washington Examiner, John Durham has “many” more indictments to bring in one of the greatest scandals in modern political history, former top spy John Ratcliffe, who helped expose Clinton’s role in smearing Trump as a Russia agent, told Fox News.
Last week, Durham indicted Igor Danchenko, a key source for the long-discredited Christopher Steele dossier that made lurid claims that Trump was a Russian agent compromised by a mythical “pee tape.”
“Many” indictments to come
The indictment revealed that Danchenko had received information from a Clinton ally, Charles Dolan, the most direct evidence yet that the Russia collusion hoax that consumed more than half of Trump’s presidency was an elaborate disinformation campaign led by Trump’s electoral rival.
Ratcliffe told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that he expects “many” indictments to follow, based on 1,000 classified documents he gave to Durham during his time as director of national intelligence.
“I continue to think there will be many indictments based on the intelligence that I gave to John Durham and that I have seen.” It was Clinton, not Trump, who colluded with Russia, a conspiracy that “goes to the highest levels of our government,” Ratcliffe said.
He pointed to memos he declassified in October of 2020 showing former President Obama and former CIA spy John Brennan were aware of Clinton’s efforts to tie Trump to Russia, and another memo directing disgraced FBI officials James Comey and Peter Strzok to look into the matter that was ignored.
Ratcliffe recalled how corrupt officials at the FBI, despite knowing the dossier was bogus, used it to spy on the Trump campaign and investigate the former president for years.
Everyone involved in creating the dossier and legitimizing it is in “criminal jeopardy,” Ratcliffe said.
“Everything related to the Steele dossier was known to be untrue, but yet it was the predicate for moving forward with an unjust, unfair, and ultimately now, everyone accepts, a criminally negligent investigation against the Trump campaign,” he said.
Durham charged former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann with lying to the FBI about the fact that he was working for Clinton when he passed along disinformation tying Trump with a Russian bank to the FBI in September 2016.
As The New York Times previously reported, FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was sentenced to probation for hiding exculpatory evidence to justify spying on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
