Ratcliffe Warns of Election Interference from Iran and Russia, Proud Boys Vindicated, Lincoln Project and Media Collusion Uncovered
DNI Director John Ratcliffe,on Wednesday, warned of the Iranian regime helping Joe Biden by attempting to discredit President Donald J. Trump, before the upcoming 2020 Presidential election, in the form of propaganda.
Natasha Bertrand of MSNBC wrote, the USG “has concluded that Iran is behind a series of threatening emails arriving this week in the inboxes of Democratic voters…The emailers said they were Proud Boys but actually originated in Iran.”
Just The News’ John Solomon wrote,” Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Wednesday night announced that both Russia and Iran have gained access to some U.S. voter registration data.”
“First, we have confirmed that some voter registration information has been obtained by Iran and separately by Russia,” Ratcliffe said during a Wednesday press conference. “This data can be used by foreign actors to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, sow chaos and undermine your confidence in American democracy.”
“To that end, we have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage, President Trump,” he said. “Additionally, Iran is distributing other content, to include a video that implies that individuals could cast fraudulent ballots even from overseas. This video and any claims about such allegedly fraudulent ballots are not true.”
“Hillary Clinton paid for Russian disinformation, Russia and China bought off the Biden family, Iran used the Lincoln Project to peddle disinformation to hurt Trump, while Twitter is censoring GOP fundraising links, the New York Post, and the President of the United States,” wrote Sean Davis of the Federalist.
“”Iran sending spoof emails to registered voters to damage @RealDonaldTrump,” Tom Fitton wrote.
Jack Posobiec of One American News posted that the FBI confirmed it was a group from Iran who was impersonating The Proud Boys and threatening people about voting.
Numerous people posted a screenshot of the following email claiming it was the email to which Ratcliffe referred:
Sean Davis posted, “LA senior intelligence official tells @FDRLST tonight re: major DOJ/FBI/DNI announcement about Iran interfering in the election to help Biden: “Media did exactly what Iran knew they would do. They assumed fake ‘Proud Boys’ e-mails were real, then used them to attack Trump.”
Supporters of Trump’s uncovered the media collusion by a group of Never Trumpers who have been busy promoting the Iranian’s message:
Davis, again made a brilliant point:
More media collusion:
“American media and Democrat activists helped Iran to run a disinformation campaign aimed at making it look like right wing Proud Boys were threatening Democrat voters. As the US Dir of National Intelligence said, Iran ran this operation to hurt Trump. Our media helped them do it.” Robby Starbuck wrote.
The election is less than 13 days away from being over. It is sure to be a fight all the way to the finish line. Yahoo News was a major proponent of the disinformation spread:
