There is allegedly ample raw intelligence about China's intended actions to influence the 2020 presidential election. The information that is continuing to emerge include indications that Chinese networks amplified messaging that smeared President Donald Trump as a white supremacist.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe is reportedly considering not signing off on the report if it does not include this discussion, One America News Network reported.
"This is a big deal. Ratcliffe has drawn a line in the sand on China and not backing down. Even some of the careers agree with him that the 'Russia Russia Russia' crowd is downplaying the China threat," a senior national security official told OANN.
Several senior analysts are reportedly downplaying the findings while others are seeking the discovery's inclusion.
"There are partisan elements within the intelligence community who are desperate to deny a talking point to President Trump," a former national security official in Washington, DC, told The Post Millennial, pointing at "the same people who pushed the Russia collusion assessment."
"Interestingly, some of the people who want to include the Chinese operational statement are not supporters of the President at all, but people committed to doing their job," the source stated.
