More Indictments Predicted From Investigation of Russia-Gate Hoax

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said he expects “many” more indictments to come from special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia-Gate hoax.

The prediction followed last week’s indictment of Igor Danchenko, a Russian-born analyst who was the main source for disgraced ex-British spy Christopher Steele and his now-discredited dossier, which was the basis for the FBI’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Danchenko was charged with making false statements to the FBI about his sources of information, including about the role longtime Clinton ally Charles Dolan played in providing the basis of certain claims about Trump.

Ratcliffe said it was obvious to him that Steele’s dossier was the handiwork of the Clintons, which Durham’s investigation confirmed.

“When I became the director of national intelligence, I said listen, I want to see all of the intelligence about this supposed Russian collusion,” Ratcliffe told Fox News, “and what I found was, and as you’re finding out, is there was, of course, no Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“But what I did see in intelligence documents, some of which I’ve now declassified, that there was collusion involving the Clinton campaign and Russians to create a dossier, everything related to the Steele dossier was known to be untrue,” he said, “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.”

Ratcliffe said that all signs point to Durham zeroing in on other officials who used the Steele dossier as a legitimate source.

“What happened with the Steele dossier, a grand jury is saying was criminal in nature, and I expect that all of the folks that are involved with creating it and peddling it falsely would be in jeopardy,” Ratcliffe said.

“And I know that that’s what John Durham is looking at, and as I talked about, this goes to the highest levels of our government and government agencies involved,” he said.
