Why is John 'The Rat' Ratcliffe Cutting Back on Election Security Briefings?

Pandemic Diary
Day 167

Dear Diary,

Here's what we know so far...

Trump is busy downplaying Russia's involvement in this year's elections and that means suppressing any intel about Putin efforts to keep Trump in office.

John "The Rat" Ratcliffe, Director of National Intelligence, is scaling back election security briefings with 64 days to go before the election.

Why? Because "The Rat"  is another Trump toadie who has no problem getting help from Putin. That's it in a nutshell.

Drilling down deeper, this latest information suppression move is part of Trump's overall plan to rig the election. His attacks against the Post Office and the validity of our mail system is sowing seeds of uncertainty in our 245 year-old institution.

In addition, Trump is counting on conspiracy theories popping up as an October surprise. In particular, he has traitor Sen. Ron Johnson "investigating" Biden and his son Hunter, in a conspiracy theory put forward by Russian intelligence that has been repeatedly debunked by our own intelligence community.

It doesn't matter however. Fact-checking doesn't slow down the flood of lies from Trump and his campaign minions. Adding to the chaos, Trump is causing concern in the healthcare community and his own Coronavirus Task force.

The fact that Trump has denied the science behind the pandemic has caused others to follow his ignorant lead which has led to COVID-19 super spreader events and 183,000 dead Americans... and still counting.

For good measure, Trump is doing his best to ignore the reasons for riots in various cities (systemic racism), and to use them as dystopian backdrops for his hypocritical "Law and Order" campaign to save suburban housewives. 

The Rat's  latest move to stop oral briefings (which the Senate and the House prefer so they can ask questions) isn't going to end his interference against facts that Trump doesn't want exposed. Expect more jaw-dropping moves downplaying Russia's ongoing efforts to re-elect Trump.

The overall plan - if can call it that - is to spread fear, confusion, and chaos in the nation; ultimately discouraging people to vote.
