We learned last month in a letter from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe to Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham that Russian intelligence knew of Hillary Clinton’s plans to cook up a scandal alleging that Donald Trump was working with Russia and that President Obama was briefed personally on the matter by then-CIA Director John Brennan.
“Additional declassification and public disclosure of related intelligence remains under consideration,” Ratcliffe wrote, and now he’s declassified Brennan’s handwritten notes.

Brooke Singman reports for Fox News:
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified documents that revealed former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s purported “plan” to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server” ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Fox News has learned.
Ratcliffe declassified Brennan’s handwritten notes – which were taken after he briefed Obama on the intelligence the CIA received – and a CIA memo, which revealed that officials referred the matter to the FBI for potential investigative action.
A source familiar with the documents explained that Brennan’s handwritten notes were taken after briefing Obama on the matter.
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED],” Brennan notes read. “CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service,” Brennan’s notes read.
“… a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.” As Joe Biden would say if he weren’t involved in all this, come on, man!
This was a coup. Plain and simple

Doesn't matter. No one will report it and Durham is running out the clock.

The Durham report would have been a nice October surprise, but we’re not counting on it.
Now do something about it after four years.

Biden needs to be grilled on this. It is a catastrophe that 99% of the country has NO understanding of what this means. It would shift the election in ways few could comprehend.

Such a great photo. So prepared to transfer power peacefully to assist the next duly elected president.
If Biden wins, this all goes away
