Former U.S. Director of National Intelligence is warning the American people that the Department of Justice, under Joe Biden, is “not playing it straight” with the nation regarding the FBI’s search of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

Federal agents claim they found documents with national secrets there: Trump confirmed he had declassified those.

Former DNI John Ratcliffe appeared this week on Fox:

PJMedia reported on the interview and noted that Ratcliffe also said he doesn’t think the FBI found what it was looking for.

There have been some fairly wild accusations made in connection with the raid on Trump’s home, and one of the charges has been that the FBI was looking for documentation that would tie its agents to the now-debunked 2016 “Russiagate” collusion conspiracy theory.

That was the scheme created by Democrats that falsely claimed Trump’s campaign was colluding with Russia. The FBI and the DOJ were integral to its years of harassment of campaign officials – and were a constant drag on Trump’s presidency.

Ratcliffe was discussing the search with guest host Judge Jeanine Pirro on the Jesse Watters Primetime program. Trump has requested a special master to review what the FBI confiscated because the agency apparently took only only his private papers including his passport, but material covered by attorney-client privilege, which it would not be qualified to have.

“The judge would appoint the special master, and it would be an extension of the court. I do think that it’s the right thing to do. The DOJ’s position is number one, we don’t need a special master…we’ve already sorted everything and looked at everything. Take our word for it that it was done. As you pointed out, they had attorney-client privilege in there, so the taint team that was looking at this didn’t do their job,” Ratcliffe said.

He continued, “And, you know, all of this, listen, you presided over a lot of cases. I was a former federal prosecutor, United States attorney. Let me tell you what this is about. Good prosecutors with good cases play it straight. They don’t need to play games, they don’t need to shop for judges, they don’t need to leak intelligence that may or may not exist. And in this case, this tells you that the government didn’t find what they were looking for.

“There weren’t nuclear secrets in Melania Trump’s underwear drawer, and they’re trying to justify what they’ve done. They’re not playing it straight before the American people. I think that that’s going to play out.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: How is it possible that the greatest and freest nation in world history has so rapidly come under the control of serially lying, deranged, power-mad sociopaths – leaders with nothing but contempt for America, for its history, its Constitution, its Judeo-Christian culture and its people? Orwell’s “1984” points directly to the answer: The elites are changing America’s language itself, so that people’s words – and therefore, their very thoughts – inevitably come under the control of the ruling class. It’s a way of bending reality in real time, so that what is illusion appears to be true, while what is real and true appears to be lies, misinformation, “hate speech,” “conspiracy theories” and “extremism.” This extraordinarily powerful but little-understood weapon of war employed 24/7 by the Marxist left is completely explained, exposed and exploded in the August issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower agazine, NEWSPEAK 2022: How tyrants and lunatics are enslaving Americans by redefining everything.
