[Ed. – Read carefully, as quoted at Just The News, Ratcliffe’s response undoubtedly means the Democrats wrote an addendum in July that cherry-picked and overemphasized the Left’s theme of Russia being behind Ukraine’s investigations of the Bidens. The House Democrats set off a firestorm at the end of July with a closed-door demand to the DNI to basically plump for their theme, in intelligence reporting to the public. The DNI is refusing to do that.]
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe is accusing congressional Democrats of creating a misleading classified document sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray, saying it pulled “selectively” from reports and failed to adequately represent the intelligence community’s viewpoint.
The memo was a classified addendum attached to a July 13 letter that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner sent the FBI director concerning foreign interference in the November elections
In a letter to Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson that was released this week, Ratcliffe said U.S. intelligence did not create or authorize the addendum contained in the Democrats’ letter.
