John Ratcliffe, former Director of National Intelligence, blasted the FBI, saying they didn’t find what they were looking for in their raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
“Ratcliffe said Wednesday on FNC’s ‘Jesse Watters Primetime’ that he did not think the Department of Justice found what it was looking for during the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach, FL home,” reported Breitbart.
Ratcliffe explained his thought process in the matter and why it’s important.
FBI Caught: Trump Was Right
“The judge would appoint the special master, and it would be an extension of the court,” Ratcliffe noted.
“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 — we’ve already sorted everything and looked at everything. Take our word for it that it was done,” Ratcliffe said.
“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 added.
“And, you know, all of this, listen, you presided over a lot of cases,” Ratcliffe continued. “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,” he continued.
“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,” Ratcliffe concluded.
