DNI Delays Report After Confirming “Foreign Interference”: Reason Could Be Related To SolarWinds

The DNI report is essential to the execution of Executive Order 13848, so many people are freaking out over this delay…. But the wording here is specific and doesn't reject a report received afterward, and there’s an important reason for the postponement.

The United States could very well be, at this time, in a hot war with a foreign country, most likely China.

The reason is the 2020 election interference.

And, yesterday, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced that the election fraud report would be delayed, produced in January, which caused a massive freak out among many Trump supporters.

However, Ratcliffe and Trump aren’t idiots. The wording of the E.O. simply says 45 days after the conclusion of the election… however, the 2020 election hasn’t been concluded yet… it’s being contested. There is no doubt that foreign actors and states interfered, giving the president the power to declare a national emergency and suspend, seize, or do whatever is necessary to secure the safety and protection of the American people and the Republic.

Moreover, the SolarWinds hack indicates that there’s a whole lot more going on that we know.

Conservative Treehouse reported:

Well this is very interesting.  On the same day Christopher Krebs, who was the country’s top cybersecurity official during the presidential election (before being fired), testified before the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee about no election interference,… according to CBS News Catherine Herridge the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, is now saying there WAS foreign interference in the 2020 election.

WATCH:

Something is obviously going on, because the ODNI is now saying the report on the 2020 election is going to be delayed. (LINK)

“DNI Ratcliffe leads the 17 intelligence agencies and he has access to the most highly classified information that is held by the US government. And he told CBS News that there was foreign interference by China, Iran, and Russia in November of this year and he is anticipating a public report on those findings in January.”

But, there’s something else going on too…

The Epoch Times reported:

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) announced late Wednesday that Director John Ratcliffe has been notified that the intelligence community will not be meeting the Dec. 18 deadline set by an executive order to report on foreign threats during the November election as “agencies have not finished coordinating on the product.”

“This afternoon the DNI was notified by career intelligence officials that the Intelligence Community will not meet the Dec. 18 deadline, set by executive order and Congress to submit the IC’s classified assessment on foreign threats to the 2020 U.S. elections,” Amanda Schoch, a spokeswoman for the office, said in a statement.

The office confirmed that the upcoming report includes information about “relevant” foreign threats from the recent election.

“The IC has received relevant reporting since the election and a number of agencies have not finished coordinating on the product,” Schoch said, adding that Ratcliffe remains committed to an expeditious release of the report.

Dec. 18 marks 45 days after the Nov. 3 general election, when, according to Trump’s executive order in 2018, the DNI was expected to deliver a report regarding “to the maximum extent ascertainable” whether any interference attempts took place, and the nature of such interference, methods used, and who was involved and authorized such efforts.

[Careful here… it just says within 45 days of the “election,” and since the results were not readied, and still aren’t readied, there’s a loophole.]

The order also directs the U.S. government to impose automatic sanctions on foreign nations, individuals, and entities who are found to be involved in trying to interfere in U.S. elections.

Richard Grenell, the former acting director of national intelligence, wrote on Twitter just prior to the announcement that Ratcliffe “is standing up for career analysts who want their views to be accurately reflected.”

“In other words, fighting to keep intelligence from being politicized,” he added.

Grenell shared a report which said, citing an anonymous source, that Ratcliffe was not signing off on the report unless it more fully reflected the national security threat posed by China’s attempts to influence the outcome of the 2020 election. “John Ratcliffe has access to the most sensitive intel. This is important,” Grenell said.

Earlier this year, Ratcliffe said that the biggest threat to election security in the United States is the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

“China poses a greater national security threat to the U.S. than any other nation—economically, militarily, and technologically. That includes threats of election influence and interference,” Ratcliffe said.

The intelligence official said Beijing was concerned that President Donald Trump will win reelection, adding that the intelligence community has briefed “hundreds of members of Congress” to raise their concerns about China “and its increased efforts to impact the U.S. policy climate in its favor.”

Ratcliffe told CBS earlier this month that there was foreign election interference by China, Iran, and Russia in November 2020.

“China is an economic threat and a technological threat. And that’s something that the United States hasn’t had to deal with before,” he said.

The ODNI’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center said in August that China preferred Trump not win reelection.

Ratcliffe has repeatedly identified China as an overall national security threat. He penned an op-ed on Dec. 3 in The Wall Street Journal, saying that “the People’s Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since World War II.”

However, many suggest that the report is being delaying to include the SolarWinds hack, which would essentially mean that the United States IS at war.
