DNI Says China “Sought To Influence” 2020 Election

Director of National Intelligence wrote a letter to Congress outlining China’s efforts to interfere in the 2020 election.

He also talked about the Deep State’s efforts to downplay it.

It was a bombshell.

From Epoch Times:

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 Analytic Ombudsman Barry Zulauf, the director of national intelligence said some analysts were reluctant to describe China’s actions as election interference because they disagreed with the policies of President Donald Trump.

The Washington Examiner published Ratcliffe’s letter and the ombudsman report on Jan. 17, ten days after publishing an original report on the documents. The ODNI did not 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.

His letter also talked about the cover-up from the intel agencies:

The report by Zulauf, the intelligence community analytic ombudsman, was sent to Congress on Jan. 7 alongside an intelligence community assessment of interference in the 2020 election. In the report (pdf), Zulauf states 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.”

No one is shocked by this. We have been reporting on China’s influence in the 2020 election.

Just remember the Mainstream Media was quick to create an entire fake narrative about Trump colluding with Russia. Yet they won’t say a word about this.


A new report from Bloomberg outlined the war going on between those in the intel community regarding the impact China had on the 2020 election.

It seems that China’s influence was far more than previously reported and some are trying to downplay that.


Some analysts say the new intelligence will show that China’s effort to influence the U.S. election was far more extensive than previously reported by spy agencies over the last year, the people said.

DNI Cheif  John Ratcliffe may withhold the report if it doesn’t accurately represent the extent China impacted the 2020 election:

President Donald Trump’s spy chief is considering holding up a report to Congress on foreign efforts to sway the Nov. 3 election, arguing that China should be cited more prominently for its attempts to influence American voters, according to people familiar with the matter.

The disagreement that’s dividing U.S. intelligence officials and analysts has prompted Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe to weigh withholding his certification of the report that’s supposed to be delivered to U.S. lawmakers on Friday, the people said.

Ratcliffe wants the report to more fully reflect the national security threat that China’s efforts posed, said the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity owing to the sensitivity of the information.

More from OANN:

Of course, this lines up perfectly with what we have seen.

We know that China started a propaganda campaign against the Trump Administration.

We know that China has spies all across our important institutions.

Pray for DNI Ratcliffe that he stands firm and puts out a report exposing the extent China influenced our elections.
