According to intel from former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, there is evidence to support the indictments of “multiple people” in regards to investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.
A recent Durham filing claims that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign paid a tech company to infiltrate Trump Tower’s servers, which supports President Donald Trump’s consistent claim that Clinton spied on his campaign.
Three indictments have already resulted from the Durham probe.
Ratcliffe claims more are likely to come.
“The intelligence that I’ve seen would reflect that there would be additional actions taken by John Durham,” he told Fox News.
“When I became DNI and saw more intelligence, I became more convinced that there were more incidents like that as it related to the 2016 campaign.”

The New York Post reports on this potential big-time news:
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said Monday that he expects to see “quite a few more indictments” come out of special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI probe of claims that former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.
Ratcliffe also revealed that he’d seen intelligence that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign “was creating a plan to vilify Donald Trump [and] to falsely accuse him of ties to Russia,” and further alleged that the intelligence community, the FBI — as well as then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden — were all briefed on the matter.
“[Then-Attorney General] Bill Barr, John Durham, and I, all looking at this intelligence, agreed there was not a proper predicate to open a criminal investigation into the Trump campaign, yet that happened,” Ratcliffe said.
“So, those are the issues that John Durham is looking at, and I think there’ll be many more — I would expect there to be quite a few more indictments because of that. There was not a proper predicate to begin that investigation. John Durham has said that publicly already.”
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said he believes that Justice Department special counsel John Durham's investigation will result in more indictments. https://t.co/pcgqGVFEya pic.twitter.com/DJzd3T1Lqa

The Durham investigation has led to three indictments already.
If Radcliffe’s assessment that “multiple people” may still be indicted is correct, this is huge news.
Our friends at Fox News have more on the three previous indictments:
At this point, Durham has indicted three people as part of his investigation: Igor Danchenko on Nov. 4, 2021, Kevin Clinesmith in August 2020, and Michael Sussmann in September 2021.
Ratcliffe told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” on Nov. 8, 2021, that he was expecting “many indictments” out of Durham’s special counsel investigation.
Danchenko was charged with making a false statement and is accused of lying to the FBI about the source of information that he provided to Christopher Steele for the anti-Trump dossier. Kevin Clinesmith was also charged with making a false statement. Clinesmith had been referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation.
Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about Page to say that he was “not a source” for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The DOJ relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Trump campaign aide Carter Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
Durham also charged former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussmann has pleaded not guilty.
Here’s part of John Ratcliffe’s interview with Fox News:

The Durham investigation has shown that the biggest threat to our democracy is not some foreign country, but rather the Power Elite led by the likes of Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the mainstream media & security state who work to undermine our democracy from within

The Durham Probe exposed corruption bigger than Watergate.

If you think the domestic spying Durham revealed is bad, just wait until you see which other foreign governments, and assets, were involved.
This was a global conspiracy to take down a populist nationalist candidacy and presidency

Where is the mainstream media’s coverage of Durham?
They pushed baseless disinformation on the Russia collusion hoax for years, and now refuse to cover these important revelations.
