DNI Ratcliffe Blasts Democrats for Sending Misleading Classified Document to FBI
Sept. 7, 2020 (EIRNS)—U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe yesterday blasted Democrats for creating a misleading and incomplete “classified” document that Democratic Congressional leaders sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray to allow them to “warn” of possible foreign interference in U.S. elections in November.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi replied,
“In response to your specific questions, I can confirm that the IC (intelligence community) did not create the classified addendum to the 13 July letter, nor did we authorize its creation. The IC was not consulted prior to its creation and subsequent release to the entire membership of the House of Representatives.”
The addendum, however, was attached to a July 13, 2020 letter sent to the FBI Director by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, and Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner—all Democratic leaders.
