There is an incredible dynamic unfolding today as the deep state is pressuring DNI Ratcliffe to try to delay the foreign interference report that's due this Friday (the 18th).
CBS correspondent Catherine Herridge reported Wednesday that DNI John Ratcliffe told CBS "that there was foreign election interference by China, #Iran, and Russia in November of this year.
CBS Reporter: What did Ratcliffe say about election fraud and interference?
Catherine Herridge: Well 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."
Here are the highlights of today's Situation Update (Dec. 17th), which is embedded below.
US intelligence agencies reportedly possess intelligence that suggest China sought to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, pushing a narrative through state-controlled media organizations that tried to smear Donald Trump as a white supremacist.
The so-called intelligence community is notoriously loathe to provide evidence backing up assertions with great implications, but One America News Network reported Wednesday that career officials of federal intelligence agencies support Trump administration Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe's suspicions of Chinese interference. Other federal employees are trying to sweep the intelligence suggesting Chinese interference under the rug.
- Foreign interference in the US election is confirmed by DNI John Ratcliffe.
- Deep state swamp creatures in the intelligence community (IC) are trying to delay the report.
- Intelligence agencies have loads of evidence of China's interference in the 2020 election.
- "Intel source" tells Maria Martiromo that Trump won the election, they are counting on SCOTUS to "stop the clock." (Good luck with that, SCOTUS is compromised by Roberts.)
- Rand Paul: Voter fraud 'happened' and election was in 'many ways stolen.'
- President Trump comments on Senate election fraud hearing, confirms Krebs (from CISA) was lying.
- Trump Lawyer Jenna Ellis: 'We're Gonna Fight Regardless of What Happens' in January.
- Why Trump is going to win Wisconsin as that election outcome is overturned.
- Voting machines subpoenaed in Michigan and Arizona.
- Sen. McConnell took money from Dominion as election contributions.
- FOUR Senators now willing to consider objecting to electoral votes on Jan. 6th. FIVE members of the House now willing to object. Only 1 from each is needed.
Ratcliffe has informed liberal elements of the intelligence community that he won't sign off on reports that ignore evidence of Chinese interference in the election.
"This is a big deal. Ratcliffe has drawn a line in the sand on China and not backing down. Even some of the careers agree with him that the 'Russia Russia Russia' crowd is downplaying the China threat," a senior national security official reportedly informed OANN.
Sen. Rand Paul railed against voter fraud in the 2020 election during a Senate hearing, saying voter fraud happened and that the election was "in many ways stolen."
"The fraud happened," the Kentucky Republican said during a Wednesday Senate hearing on election security. "The election in many ways was stolen, and the only way it'll be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws."
"We can't just say, 'It didn't happen,'" Paul said about fraud allegations across the country. "We can't just say, 'Oh, 4,000 people voted in Nevada that were noncitizens, and we're just going to ignore it.'"
President Trump said the Senate Homeland Security Committee found widespread election-machine glitches, out of state and illegal voting and the use of phony ballots took place.
Krebs falsely claimed the 2020 election was "the most secure ever."
However, the latest audits show Dominion Voting Machines were pre-set to switch ballots and were remotely controlled from abroad. Sen. Rand Paul also called out Krebs by saying his statement only covered safety from foreign election meddling and not domestic irregularities.
President Donald Trump's attorney Jenna Ellis said the president's legal team will continue to contest the results of the election even after Congress counts and validates the Electoral College vote.
We're gonna fight regardless of what happens come January 6, and I hope that we do rectify the correct results of this election."
It is during this time that objections can be filed but any objection must be endorsed by at least one US Senator and one US Representative.
If an objection is registered properly, the joint session will be recessed, and each chamber will meet separately to debate and vote on the objection. A simple majority can uphold the objection, nullifying the electoral votes for the state in question.
Michigan's legislation bodies granted the state's Senate and House oversight committees subpoena powers Tuesday, allowing state officials greater range to investigate allegations of irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.
The counties are being asked to hand over all information used by the Absentee Voter Counting Board, hard drives, all communication between poll workers, the list of workers hired to be adjudicators, scanners, and voting machines, according to the subpoenas obtained by Just The News.
The Arizona Senate has issued the subpoenas to Maricopa County in order to perform a full forensic audit of their Dominion Voting machines.
During the hearing, State Senator Eddie Farnsworth announced the Arizona Senate would be issuing subpoenas to perform a full forensic audit of the Dominion Voting machines, software, and ballots used in Maricopa County.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) quashed two election integrity bills in July last year after receiving thousands in donations from Dominion lobbyists.
In July, McConnell blocked two bills, one that would provide $775 million to "bolster election security," along with requiring a physical paper trail of every single ballot cast in the country, and a second that would mandate political candidates, their staff members, and their families, to notify the FBI if any foreign government offered to assist them.
