Make no mistake, John Ratliffe did not sign on as President Trump’s new Director of National Intelligence because he wants a cushy desk job and a résumé booster. No, his new position as DNI is all about draining the noxious swamp that was and is the Obama/Clinton deep state.
John Ratliffe is a smart and tough-as-nails former federal prosecutor who I first noticed during FBI swamp rat Peter Strzok’s testimony before Congress. Rude, arrogant, entitled, Trump-hating Strzok was publicly flayed by Congressman Ratcliffe who set Strzok up, then pounded him into the House chamber floor, leaving the seditious scumbag stunned and speechless on the witness stand.
That was then, this is now, and John Ratcliffe has become even more zealous in his crusade to root out, investigate, and prosecute the Clinton/Obama swamp rats who have been running rogue, lawless, and unaccountable for the past nearly three decades.
“The Democrats paid a heavy price for bringing a reluctant witness to testify,” declared Ratliffe to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. “They overplayed their hand and they did it in front of the American people on national television. It was just a train wreck of a week for the Democrats. It was a great week for Donald Trump because of that…. Now, the things that Bob Mueller said he didn’t know about and his team clearly didn’t look at, those are things that would be fair for Bill Barr and the Department of Justice to look at.”
Referring to Mueller’s army of Trump-hating investigators as “Hillary Clinton’s defacto legal team,” who were apparently not appointed by Mueller but by the Wicked Witch of Benghazi herself (or operatives close to her), nominee Ratcliffe asserted assuredly that “we KNOW that things happened in the Obama administration that haven’t been answered. There’s been no accountability for that yet.”
Look for a truckload of criminal referrals coming from DNI to Attorney General Bill Barr, who will need to hire a thousand more investigators.
In the following segment, nominee Ratcliffe gets more specific, naming names and crimes committed and reiterating his “supreme confidence in Bill Barr’s ability.”
“Where it all started, Jim Comey. He admitted that he leaked his confidential conversations with the president to a reporter. Did that include classified information? We need a fair process to find out answers to that. I trust, because Bill Barr has earned my trust already and the trust of the American people, that there will be a fair process with John Durham and with Michael Horowitz to get answers to that and provide accountability where it really belongs.”
Somewhere, Hillary Clinton is shaking in her Salvatore Ferragamos!
Watch, also, for John Kerry, a civilian, to finally be called to account for dealing with Iran behind President Trump’s back. His many meetings with Iranian officials are clearly all violations of the Logan Act. This has been among the more egregious violations of the Clinton/Obama swamp, in my opinion, and Kerry must be prosecuted for it. Anything short of that will only embolden government officials in the future to act with the same lawless indifference.
In June, The Daily Beast reported that anonymous officials from Obama’s former administration have been coaching Iranian leaders on how to negotiate with Trump. Kerry is suspected to be the leader of these officials.”
