DNI Report: China Influenced 2020 Election
The Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe has finally released to President Donald Trump a stunning intelligence report on 2020 election integrity that we previous reported was due at the end of last year, 45 days following the election. It was delayed by swamp creatures in various alphabet agencies who refused to provide accurate and timely data. According to the report, they were intentionally working against President Trump.
The new report was a requirement of the 2018 “Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election.” The public report is only about two pages and was released on January 17th. It states that China interfered with the 2020 election and “sought to influence” the 2020 presidential election.
What is even worse than this is the apparent subterfuge by alphabet swamp creatures in groups like the CIA who are all aware of the fraud but refused to acknowledge it for anti-Trump political purposes.
“Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe assessed that China interfered in the 2020 federal elections, according to a letter transmitted to Congress.
In the letter (pdf), Ratcliffe alleges that intelligence about China’s election interference was suppressed by management at the CIA, which pressured analysts to withdraw their support for the view.
Citing a report by the Intelligence Community Analytic Ombudsman Barry Zulauf, the director of national intelligence said some analysts were reluctant to describe China’s actions as election interference because they disagreed with the policies of President Donald Trump.
The Washington Examiner published Ratcliffe’s letter and the ombudsman report on Jan. 17, ten days after publishing an original report on the documents. The ODNI did not respond to requests from The Epoch Times to authenticate the documents.
“Based on all available sources of intelligence, with definitions consistently applied, and reached independent of political considerations or undue pressure—that the People’s Republic of China sought to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections,” Ratcliffe wrote…”
The epoch Times goes on to state that, while Chinese interference is said to have occurred and was intentionally ignored or downplayed in reports by the CIA, specific details related to China’s involvement are not given in the brief summary report given to Congress on January 7th:
“The report by Zulauf was sent to Congress on Jan. 7 alongside an intelligence community assessment of interference in the 2020 election. In the report (pdf), Zulauf states that the analysts working on Russia and China applied different standards to their reporting on election interference. While labeling Russia’s activity as clear election interference, the analysts were reluctant to do the same for China.
“Given analytic differences in the way Russia and China analysts examined their targets, China analysts appeared hesitant to assess Chinese actions as undue influence or interference,” Zulauf explained.
“These analysts appeared reluctant to have their analysis on China brought forward because they tended to disagree with the Administration’s policies, saying in effect, I don’t want our intelligence used to support those policies,” he added.
Neither the ombudsman report nor the letter from Ratcliffe includes details on China’s meddling. Zulauf redirected an interview request by The Epoch Times to the ODNI, which didn’t immediately respond to an emailed request.
The analytic ombudsman’s report assesses that politicization occurred in relation to both Russia’s and China’s election interference. Zulauf assessed that neither intelligence community leaders nor analysts are at fault, blaming the hyperpartisan atmosphere in the United States instead.
We will keep you posted on further developments resulting from this report, which could be extremely significant, given its implications and ties to the 2018 executive order that we mentioned, earlier.
It should e noted, however, that Ratcliffe has made previous claims in 2020 that are backed up by the findings of this report.
In a Dec. 3 op-ed in the Wallstreet Journal, Ratcliffe also said the CCP “poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since World War II.”
“The intelligence is clear: Beijing intends to dominate the U.S. and the rest of the planet economically, militarily, and technologically,” he wrote. “Many of China’s major public initiatives and prominent companies offer only a layer of camouflage to the activities of the Chinese Communist Party.”
Congress certified Joe Biden as the president-elect on Jan. 7. In the two months leading up to the certification, Trump challenged the outcome of the election in seven states, citing unconstitutional changes to election laws and potentially illegally cast votes.
