Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe suggested that based on the evidence he’s seen, “a lot more indictments” should be imminent in connection with special counsel John Durham’s “Russiagate” investigation that ties former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign to the now-debunked Steele dossier compiled to discredit former President Donald Trump.
“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 upon documents, some of which — many of which are not yet declassified,” Ratcliffe said on “The Charlie Kirk Show” last week.
“I always felt that there were a lot of people responsible for what was a hoax perpetrated on the American public, intending to mislead them about Donald Trump and relations with Russians that didn’t exist,” Ratcliffe said. “And Michael Sussmann is just one of many people all the way from other folks involved with the Clinton campaign to the DNC, to independent folks like Christopher Steele to even folks in the FBI that perpetuated what they knew to be a false narrative for a period of time.”

“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,” he asserted.
“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,” the 56-year-old attorney said.
“There are folks that had access to classified information that didn’t have the clearances to see that, and saw it in places that were not secure,” he added.
Ratcliffe called the operation a “coordinated political effort” and suggested the bottom line was that the goal was to “influence the outcome of a presidential election.”
Despite his confident predictions, patience was wearing thin on social media users waiting for the much-anticipated indictments that only appear to be trickling in, and as one person noted, the clock could be ticking on the statute of limitations.

How long will this take? Everyone involved will be pushing up daises before anything of consequence is done! #DurhamReport

As frustrating as it is to watch the slow rollout of justice/exposure, and endure the years of lies, this is the only way our democracy can survive. If we had circumvented the systems in place and played as dirty as the dems, we’d be no better than them. Justice shall prevail.

But others were skeptical that any significant findings would be revealed and deemed it a conspiracy theory.
If Trump knew there were classified documents that would implicate Hillary and the DNC,he would have declassified them.
