With just over 30 days remaining until the Presidential Election, a massive bombshell dropped.
And it came at the worst possible time for the Democrats.
Barack Obama received a secret briefing about Trump that changed everything.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe dispatched a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham containing a number of stunning revelations.
First, Ratcliffe revealed that on July 26, 2016 the intelligence community gained an “insight” into a Russian intelligence’ brief that Hillary Clinton authorized a smear campaign to frame Donald Trump for colluding with the Russians on hacked emails released to WikiLeaks.
Ratcliffe also wrote that former CIA Director John Brennan personally briefed President Barack Obama on this development.
“According to his handwritten notes, former Central Intelligence Agency Director Brennan subsequently briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence, including the ‘alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services,’” Ratcliffe wrote.
Director of National Intelligence Ratcliffe’s letter put the Russia investigation in an even worse light.
Brennan briefing Obama on the idea that Hillary Clinton may have approved a scheme to blame Trump for colluding with the Russians means Obama and his top lieutenants knew from day one that the Russian collusion story was nothing more than a partisan hit job concocted by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The Obama administration knew this fact and when Barack Obama met with former FBI Director James Comey, former National Security Susan Rice, and Vice President Joe Biden met in the Oval Office on January 5 that gathering now looks very different.
Obama ordering Comey to investigate the Russian collusion hoax “by the book” now looks like an attempt to get it on the record that Obama wanted a legitimate investigation while really ordering the FBI to undermine the peaceful transition of power to the incoming Trump administration.
