Former Director of National Intelligence Ratcliffe predicts more indictments from Durham probe

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said this week there are still many classified documents related to the so-called Russiagate investigation that once released would shock the nation.

“I expect there to be a lot more indictments to be forthcoming from John Durham besides the ones that have trickled out so far. And that’s based on documents, some of which — many of which are not yet declassified,” Ratcliffe said during a recent episode of the Charlie Kirk Show. 

Ratcliffe believes John Durham’s criminal inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Russia investigation leaves much more information still to be revealed that allegedly has deep roots in the Democrat party.

“The coordinated effort here that took place in 2016 was wide and broad. I think it involved folks in the Clinton campaign, in the Democratic national party, elected officials, media officials, folks that coordinated — intelligence community officials, and on down the line,” Ratcliffe said.

“I’m not saying that every single one of those folks have criminal liability or exposure. I’m just saying this was a very coordinated effort and the more and more the public finds out about the things that I’ve seen that remain classified, they’ll be more and more appalled by those efforts in 2016.”

Thus far, Durham has had only one guilty plea as a result of his investigation. Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty to altering an email regarding a former Trump campaign aide under federal surveillance.
