Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe released a report stating China interfered with the 2020 US election.
Meanwhile, CIA management is trying to discount the assessment by pressuring the lower level analysts.
According to an Epoch Times report, a letter transmitted to Congress said Ratcliffe assessed the Chinese government to interfere with the recent elections.
The DNI alleges that the CIA management suppressed the intelligence about the Chinese election interference in the letter.
Ratcliffe said some analysts became reluctant to describe the foreign government’s actions as election interference since they disagreed with President Trump’s policies. The same was reported by Barry Zulauf, Intelligence Community Analytic Ombudsman.
The Washington Examiner published Ratcliffe’s letter and the ombudsman report on January 17 – ten days after an original report on the documents was published.
“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.
However, neither Ratcliffe’s letter nor the ombudsman report shows details on China’s alleged meddling.
Ratcliffe’s report can be read below.
It becomes clear that foreign governments such as China interfered and broke the integrity of the recent election. It’s tainted and doubtful.
How would they expect the people to follow a leader seated thru deceit and lies? Biden would be the most hated president. No doubt about it.
