‘Enough evidence’ for ‘multiple’ indictments: Former DNI Ratcliffe says of the Durham report

Special Counsel John Durham’s latest court filing quickly shot to the top of the list of hot topics this week, as the report seemed to indicate that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her campaign lawyers were involved in setting up an electronic spying operation against former President Donald Trump.

However, according to Fox News, sources close to former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, who had met with Durham during the course of the investigation into the Russia collusion hoax, have now revealed that Durham’s report contains “enough evidence” for “multiple” indictments.

It’s unclear who might be indicted as a result of Durham’s report, but logic points to those who were directly involved in setting up electronic infiltration of both Trump’s 2016 campaign, and even after he was in the White House.

The CIA memo

Fox noted that one particular piece of declassified intelligence, which was forwarded by CIA intelligence community officials, was an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton which reportedly was an approval for “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.”

The memo, also known as a Counterintelligence Operational Lead (CIOL), was forwarded at the time to the proper authorities, including then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok, and former FBI Director James Comey.

“This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know,” it read, as Fox reported late last year.

It added: “To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal. It may not be used in any legal proceeding — including FISA applications — without prior approval …”

“An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server,” it continued, with Fox noting that the CIA memo was heavily redacted.

The latest

It remains to be seen what comes of Durham’s latest report. So far, a vast majority of mainstream media outlets, with the exception of Fox News, have largely — or completely — ignored the bombshell court filing.

Durham, though his investigation has lasted for years now, has managed to secure indictments for three individuals, including “Igor Danchenko on Nov. 4, 2021, Kevin Clinesmith in August 2020, and Michael Sussmann in September 2021.”

While the pace of Durham’s investigation has been criticized, even by Trump at times, it might just be worth letting this play out, as he seems to now have the goods that could put away some of the major players involved in the alleged spying operation. Only time will tell.
