President Trump’s Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe recently declassified documents, including notes of former Obama CIA director John Brennan, that revealed the CIA had obtained intelligence by September 2016 that then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was attempting to creates a false narrative that Trump’s campaign was colluding with Russia in order to deflect from her illegal use of a private server for government emails, including some which were classified.
According to the newly revealed documents, there was concern that the information about Clinton was actually misinformation circulated by Russia. All told, these revelations further establish that Obama’s administration was engaged in developing a “Russia hoax” to attack Trump. If there was any question that Clinton was doing this, the information – along with suspicions about Russia — should have been presented to the courts which were assessing the credibility of the Steele dossier before issuing warrants. But, disturbingly, this information was concealed.
