President Donald Trump’s spy chief will not meet Friday’s deadline to submit a classified report to Congress on foreign efforts to sway the Nov. 3 election, officials said, because of arguments within the intelligence community over whether China should be cited more prominently for its attempts to influence American voters.
A statement from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s office Wednesday night said the deadline will not be met because career officers in the intelligence community say they have “received relevant reporting since the election and a number of agencies have not finished coordinating on the product.”
Ratcliffe was weighing Tuesday refusing to sign off on the report unless it more fully reflected the national security threat posed by China’s efforts, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity owing to the sensitivity of the information.
The report was to go to Capitol Hill as Trump continues to reject the outcome of the presidential election won by Democrat Joe Biden. Trump has claimed wide-scale voter fraud cost him the race, with a number of fellow Republicans still refusing to recognize Biden as president-elect. The intelligence report would not deal with allegations of domestic fraud, such as in ballot-counting.
Ratcliffe and other Trump appointees – including National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, and Attorney General William Barr – noted over the summer China posed a bigger election threat than Russia.
In recent months, they have issued a barrage of warnings China is covertly attempting to sway American politics and culture from state legislatures to Hollywood movies and from college campuses to Disney theme parks.
U.S. intelligence agencies cited China and Iran for their attempts at 2020 election interference, with his supporters saying those nations would seek to hurt Trump rather than help him.
In September, FBI Director Christopher Wray focused on Russia in an appearance before a House committee, saying it was seeking to hurt Biden’s presidential campaign through social media and influence operations. Although Wray testified China also was trying to interfere, primarily by spreading disinformation, Trump chided Wray in a tweet, saying China “is a FAR greater threat than Russia, Russia, Russia.”
Ratcliffe’s concerns are fueled by fresh intelligence that provides a fuller picture of what China’s leaders either did or planned to do to keep Trump from being reelected, the people said.
That information, some of it in Mandarin and gathered in the weeks before and after the election, is still being assessed, one of the people said. It includes social media campaigns, such as attempts to amplify messages Trump is a white supremacist, the person said.
China has previously rejected the Trump administration claims as false. The Chinese embassy in Washington didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment.
The dispute over China’s role comes even as the U.S. government is trying to assess the damage from a devastating hacking attack on government agencies attributed to Russia.
Some analysts say the new intelligence will show China’s effort to influence the U.S. election was far more extensive than previously reported by spy agencies over the last year, the people said.
Can you say “Deep State”?
I knew that you could.
The same professional bureaucrats who worked in secret to attempt to stop Candidate Trump from becoming President Trump are not attempting to stop the truth from coming out concerning China’s influence of the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.
You’re dang skippy that they interfered.
After all, they have millions of dollars invested not only in the Biden Crime Family, but also other members of the Democratic Party, like “Ladies Man” Rep. Eric Swalwell.
The same forces who have had Sleepy Joe’s back for the past several years covering for he and his family’s lucrative deals with China and other countries are the same ones trying to downplay the influence which the Communist Chinese had over the Fraudulent Victory of Joe Biden.
I like John Ratcliffe.
I believe that he is an honest public servant who wants to do what is right for the American People and his boss, President Trump. I can not even imagine the fights that he is having and the resistance he is getting from the bureaucrats in the intelligence agencies who are trying to cover Joe and the Democrats’ backs, because, truth be told, some of them may be receiving money from the Chinese, as well.
Or, they could have their own “honey pots’ like Rep. Swalwell did.
Several months ago, I wrote about the program which was set up by Obama in which college professors were “loaned out” to the Chinese Government on an ‘Education Exchange” Program.
The problem was that some of those professors worked on government projects which the Chinese paid them handsomely to spill the beans about.
The Democrats have literally sold America’s sovereignty to the Chinese Government, lock, stock, and barrel including our Constitutional Right to elect the person whom we want to lead our country.
The depth of Chinese Influence in the last election and our daily lives is fathomless.
No wonder the Deep State is trying so hard to cover for them.
They have been right smack dab in the treasonous middle of it.
