Ex-DNI Ratcliffe Gives Durham 1,000 Explosive Documents of Evidence
Ratcliffe said he had '1,000 intelligence community documents'
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe has presented special counsel John Durham with a batch of explosive documents he believes will support charges beyond the ones filed against cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussman.
Ratcliffe told Fox News:
"Sussmann's is the first of what I would hope would be a number."
Ratcliffe said he had "1,000 intelligence community documents" that would support more charges he would "expect" Durham to bring.
The Trump administration appointed Durham to probe the origins of the investigation into whether the 2016 Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.
A grand jury recently indicted Sussmann for lying to the FBI.
Ratcliffe announced he has given around 1,000 pages of materials to the Justice Department to assist with Durham's investigation, the Washington examiner reported.
Two heavily redacted Russia-related documents, including CIA Director John Brennan's written notes on a briefing with then-President Barack Obama in 2016 on an unverified Russian intelligence report claiming Hillary Clinton planned to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia's hack of the Democratic National Committee to distract from her private email server use.

Sussmann is accused of telling an FBI lawyer he was not representing any clients when he was acting on behalf of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign during a meeting on possible links between Trump and Russia.
Neon Nettle reported earlier this week:
According to a report from RealClearInvestigations, Durham has shifted the focus of his investigation onto Pentagon officials.
Durham reportedly believes that the contractors may have misused their government security clearances to provide Democratic operatives with damaging (albeit false) information about President Donald Trump.
Now, according to RCI, Durham is investigating whether certain cybersecurity experts who held "lucrative government contracts" misused their security clearances to unearth information on Trump in order to pass it on to Sussman.
According to RCI, multiple sources have confirmed that the probe centers cybersecurity consulting firm Neustar, Inc., and its former chief technology officer Rodney L. Joffe, who has "regularly advised the Biden White House on cybersecurity."
Joffe's lawyer confirmed to RCI that he was the unidentified "Tech Executive-1" who was referenced in Sussman's indictment.
