Russia, Russia, Russia; but Not China, China, China

The Communist Chinese have been interfering in US elections for more than 25 years, dating back to Chinese money bundlers when Bill Clinton ran for president in the 1990s. Because the Chinese Communists always contribute to the Democrats, the media refuses to look into it for fear of what it might find (and have to bury).

Honest reporters (normally an oxymoron these days) have learned it is detrimental to their careers to investigate stories the left doesn’t want investigated (e.g. Sharyl Attkisson and Lara Logan).

There is far more evidence of voter fraud in 2020 than in 2016 when a washed-up former British intelligence agent, in search of pub money, put together the fake dossier linking Russia with Trump. While the media questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s election for four years, it is labeling anyone questioning the results of the 2020 election as an extremist trying to tear the country apart.

Here’s a story you won’t see on CNN:

Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe assessed that China interfered in the 2020 federal elections, according to a letter transmitted to Congress.

In the letter (pdf), Ratcliffe alleges that intelligence about China’s election interference was suppressed by management at the CIA, which pressured analysts to withdraw their support for the view.

Citing a report by the Intelligence Community’s analytic ombudsman Barry Zulauf, the director of national intelligence said that some analysts were reluctant to describe China’s actions as election interference because the analysts disagreed with the policies of President Donald Trump.

The Washington Examiner published Ratcliffe’s letter and the ombudsman report on Jan. 17, 10 days after publishing an original report on the documents. The ODNI didn’t immediately respond to requests from The Epoch Times to authenticate the documents.

“Based on all available sources of intelligence, with definitions consistently applied, and reached independent of political considerations or undue pressure—that the People’s Republic of China sought to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections,” Ratcliffe wrote.

The report by Zulauf was sent to Congress on Jan. 7 alongside an intelligence community assessment of interference in the 2020 election. In the report (pdf), Zulauf states that the analysts working on Russia and China applied different standards to their reporting on election interference. While labeling Russia’s activity as clear election interference, the analysts were reluctant to do the same for China.

“Given analytic differences in the way Russia and China analysts examined their targets, China analysts appeared hesitant to assess Chinese actions as undue influence or interference,” Zulauf wrote.

“These analysts appeared reluctant to have their analysis on China brought forward because they tended to disagree with the Administration’s policies, saying in effect, I don’t want our intelligence used to support those policies.”

Neither the ombudsman report nor the letter from Ratcliffe includes details on China’s meddling. Zulauf redirected an interview request by The Epoch Times to the ODNI, which didn’t immediately respond to an emailed request.

    From the previous thread:

    mulletover

    Hundreds of writers and book agents have signed a letter to the publishing industry demanding “ No book deals for traitors.”

    They must be referring to the Obamas and the Clintons. A little late, but I’m glad they woke up.

    Say what?

    PresidentRonaldPaul #2 –

    Weaver liked young men. The question is: how young? Another “holier than thou” bites the dust. Dust likely wasn’t the only thing Weaver was trying to bite.

    Russia. Compared to China they are second fiddle. I would fear the Iranians more than the Russians. They are crazy enough to do what they want. The Russikies will at least think ‘what happens next’.

    Tucker Carlson’s opening tonight was epic…I’m surprised Fox”news” allowed it.

    I thought the Democrats would wait a few months before crushing us…I was waaaaay too optimistic.

    I can only make two conclusions —

    * Trump turned.
    * The TPTB were rattled by what happened Wins Day at the capitol.

    Their cloister was their oyster,
    It shucked easily, without grey poupon,
    The message was sent, but was not heard.

    Bc3b, where do you get the latest cable news ratings? Curious to see if the bleeding at FauxNoose is continuing.

    The LATimes, CNN, and the D.C. Swamp are all supporting her…and fondling her at all the best D.C. cocktail parties, of course.

    PRP,

    Very quickly you won’t be able to discern the difference between the Fed and Treasury. Its the reason than Yellen was selected.

    McConnell now seeming to come out in favor of impeachment.

    Elaine Chao resigned early in protest against the president Trump, and she’s now likely feeding toxicity to her husband (like Paul Ryan’s wife was doing.)

    We might need to realign the GOP in favor of screwing over Taiwan if this continues. We’ll see how Mitch likes the new policy.

    Trump needs to start the Patriot Party. At least 1/3 of all GOP registrations would change within weeks.

    27 – Taiwan is screwed anyway, there isn’t much we can do to stop it from happening if China makes the move – even if we had leadership willing, which we don’t, and doubt the incoming admin will approve useful sales to them in the future, in fact I’d be somewhat surprised if purchases approved 7mo all end up actually being delivered.

    6 – That was hilarious, sad and true but he made it entertaining.
