DEVOLVED | E4: DRAIN THE SWAMP
If the 2020 US presidential election was rigged against Donald Trump, is it possible the military was prepared well in advance of this election to monitor for fraud? Is there any evidence to indicate that white hats in the American government knew Biden would steal the election and caught him, triggering a continuity of government plan to save the republic? Based on the research of Patel Patriot, DEVOLVED is a series investigating the concept of “devolution” which is when a government’s chain of command is decentralized to circumvent the Constitutional provisions for succession.
TRANSCRIPT & SOURCES
One of Trump’s biggest allies in congress in his fight against the Russian collusion hoax was John Ratcliffe.
Ratcliffe is well known for criticizing the FBI and the special counsel investigation as being biased against Trump, staunchly supporting Trump’s criticism of the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, in particular the origins of the investigation, saying “it does appear that there were crimes committed during the Obama administration.” Ratcliffe stated that he has “seen no evidence” that Russian interference in the 2016 election helped get Trump elected. He has described court-approved surveillance of the Trump campaign as spying and stated the Russia probe may have been tainted by a criminal conspiracy.
“The Mueller report and its conclusions weren’t from Robert Mueller. They were written by what a lot of people believe was Hillary Clinton’s de facto legal team, people that had supported her, even represented some of her aides.” Democrats “accused Donald Trump of a crime and then tried to reverse engineer a process to justify that accusation.”
Ratcliffe said that he had seen a text message between FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that referenced a “secret society,” – “We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of his election, there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, working against Trump”.
All of Ratcliffe’s claims, which at the time the mainstream media claimed were false, have been revealed to be true based on the unfolding new from the Durham investigation.
On July 28th, 2019, Donald Trump announced he intended to nominate Ratcliffe to replace Dan Coats as the Director of National Intelligence. Trump expressed confidence that Ratcliffe could “Rein in” the intelligence agencies which he asserted had “Run Amok”
Ratcliffe’s nomination was met with scrutiny leading to a Trump tweet on August 2nd 2019, stating he would be withdrawing Ratcliffe’s nomination claiming MSM scrutiny. In his formal statement withdrawing from consideration, Ratcliffe said, “I do not wish for a national security and intelligence debate surrounding my confirmation, however untrue, to become a purely political and partisan issue. The country we all love deserves that it be treated as an American issue. Accordingly, I have asked the President to nominate someone other than me for this position.
On January 20, 2020, prior to the Senate impeachment trial, the Trump administration announced Ratcliffe as one of the congressional members of his impeachment team. Upon the announcement, Ratcliffe said,
“I took an oath to defend the Constitution. This impeachment is an assault on due process. It’s an assault on the separation of powers. It’s unconstitutional. I’m grateful for the opportunity to make that clear to every American during the Senate trial.”
Trump, needing somebody he could trust at the helm of our nation’s intelligence agencies, would re-nominate Ratcliffe to the position of Director of National Intelligence on February 28th, 2020 and Ratcliffe would be confirmed and later sworn in on May 26th.
John Ratcliffe plays an important role in the devolution story, specifically when it comes to the 2020 election.
On September 12, 2018, President Trump issued Executive Order 13848: Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election.
EO 13848 introduces broad sanctions with respect to targeted foreign persons determined to have interfered with a U.S. election directly or indirectly. The EO called for an assessment to be completed by our Intel community within 45 days of the election outlining any information that could indicate that there was foreign interference in our elections. The DNI was to deliver that report to the President, Secretary of State, Secretary of Treasure, Attorney General, Secretary of homeland security, and the Secretary of Defense.
Within 45 days of receiving that assessment, the Attorney General and secretary of homeland security were to deliver a report to the President, secretary of state, secretary of treasury and the Secretary of defense.
That report was to outline the extent of said foreign interference and include recommendations regarding remedial actions to be taken by the United States Government.
The dictionary defines remedial as “Something that corrects or counteracts”
The EO continues to say that “at any time… If information indicating that foreign interference in a State, tribal, or local election within the United States has occurred is identified, it may be submitted to the President in an independent report”
The Intel community assessment was set to be released on December 18th.
On December 3rd, 2020 – 15 days before the Intelligence Community assessment stemming from EO 13848 was due, John Ratcliffe wrote an Op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled “China Is National Security Threat No. 1”
On December 12th, 6 days before the IC assessment was due, John Ratcliffe tweeted that he would be attending the Army-Navy football game with Donald Trump allowing him some significant one on one time with the President.
The very next day, Donald Trump released a series of Tweets claiming: “Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD, which is all of them, CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct … In all Swing State cases, there are far more votes than are necessary to win the State, and the Election itself. Therefore, VOTES CANNOT BE CERTIFIED. THIS ELECTION IS UNDER PROTEST!”
On December 16th, it was reported the Intelligence Community assessment on foreign interference was to be delayed amid dispute over whether China sought to influence 2020 election. The assessment wasn’t submitted until January 7th, the day after the ECV cemented Biden as “President”. The assessment concluded with “high confidence” that “China did not deploy interference… or influence efforts intended to change the outcome of the US Presidential election. Our collective intelligence community was covering up the election theft.
On the same day that assessment was submitted, DNI John Ratcliffe released a memo titled “Views on Intelligence Community Election Security Analysis” stating “From my unique vantage point as the individual who consumes all of the U.S. government’s most sensitive intelligence on the People’s Republic of China, I do not believe the majority view expressed by the IC analysts fully and accurately reflects the scope of the Chinese government’s efforts to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections.”
“China analysts were hesitant to assess Chinese actions as undue influence or interference. These analysts appeared reluctant to have their analysis on China brought forward because they tend to disagree with the administration’s policies, saying in effect, I don’t want our intelligence used to support those policies.
“Based on all available sources of intelligence, independent of political considerations or undue pressure.. the People’s Republic of China sought to influence the 2020 federal elections.”
The most interesting thing from the Ratcliffe memo came when he was discussing those who held a “minority view” on China. “CIA management took actions “pressuring analysts to withdraw their support” from the alternative viewpoint on China. For example, the ICA gives the false impression that the National Intelligence Officer (NIO) for Cyber issues is the only analyst who holds the minority view on China.”
The bombshell here is the revelation that the NIO for Cyber held a minority view. Meaning the NIO for Cyber held the view that China did influence or interfere in the election.
The role of the NIO for cyber issues is to identify the perpetrators of malicious cyber activities. Therefore, the position responsible for identifying the “perpetrators of malicious cyber activities”, believed China influenced or interfered in our election, meaning that influence or interference must have occurred in the cyber realm.
This is our first piece of circumstantial evidence of foreign interference in the 2020 election, but not our only piece of circumstantial evidence.
On January 19th, 2022, it was reported that Donald Trump lost his bid to block the release of records to the January 6th committee. Within these documents was a “Draft executive order” that Trump had considered signing and it was dated December 16 of 2020. This draft order would have given Acting Sec Def Christopher Miller the discretion to order the military to take over the election due to foreign interference.
Here is what the Draft Order said about the foreign interference.:
“Dominion Voting Systems and related companies are owned or heavily controlled and influenced by foreign agents, countries, and interests. The forensic report prepared by experts found that “the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud.” The report found the election management system to be wrought with unacceptable and unlawful vulnerabilities––including access to the internet––probable cause to find evidence of fraud, and numerous malicious actions
There is also probable cause to find that Dominion Voting Systems, Smartmatic, Electronic Systems & Software, and Hart Inter Civic, Clarity Election Night Reporting, Edison Research, Sequoia, Scytl, and similar or related entities, agents or assigns, have the same flaws and were subject to foreign interference in the 2020 election in the United States. There is probable cause to find these systems bear the same crucial code “features” and defects that allowed the same outside and foreign interference in our election, in which there is probable cause to find votes were in fact altered and manipulated contrary to the will of the voters.
Dominion Voting Systems is based in Toronto, Canada, and assigns its intellectual property including patents on its firmware and software to Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Corporation (HSBC), a bank with its foundation in China and its current headquarters in London, United Kingdom. The Dominion Voting system is owned and controlled by foreign entities. Multiple expert witnesses and cyber experts identified acts of foreign interference in the election prior to November 3, 2020 and continued in the following weeks. In fact, there is probable cause to find a massive cyber-attack by foreign interests on our crucial national infrastructure surrounding our election.”
The first few parts of the draft order give us even more insight.
I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, find that the forensic report of the Antrim County, Michigan voting machines, released December 13, 2020, and other evidence submitted to me in support of this order, provide probable cause sufficient to require action under the authorities cited above because of evidence of international and foreign interference in the November 3, 2020, election.
Like all executive orders, this Draft executive order was to draw upon certain authorities the President has access to for the order to be implemented. The Draft Executive Order drew upon 3 massive authorities that prove to us the military were the ones to have found evidence of foreign interference
EO 12333: United States Intelligence Activities which outlines how our intelligence community (including the military) is legally allowed to gather intel
Executive Order 13848: Imposing certain sanctions in the event of foreign interference in a united states election
NSPM 13 – which as we discussed in devolved 3, allows for the delegation of authorities to the Secretary of Defense to conduct time-sensitive military operations in cyberspace to counter adversary cyber operations against our national interests.
- This order would draw upon authorities from:
- EO 12333: United States Intelligence Activities
- EO 13848: Foreign Interference in a US Election
- NSPM 13 (21): US Cyber Operations Policy
- The order itself tells us that there was foreign interference in our elections and even the machines it came from.
- The order alludes to involvement from China.
The inclusion of NSPM-13 is massive because that means there was a military cyber operation involved in gathering the intelligence of foreign interference. This means it would have been CYBERCOM and the NSA, both of which are headed up by General Nakasone.
We have every reason to believe that Donald Trump and his team had captured the foreign interference in our election.
Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution requires the President to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” As Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces, the President is charged with the responsibility of protecting and defending the United States.
An attack on our election infrastructure would be considered an act of war.
There is a D.C. Circuit case (Campbell v. Clinton) setting precedent for what measures a President can take to “repel foreign aggression”:
This language provides Trump plenty of leeway to respond to situations that threaten the United States and allows him to use his authority as a wartime President to do what is needed to save the country.
Donald John Trump would have been derelict in his duty as President of the United States and Commander in Chief of the military to allow the election to be stolen and Joe Biden installed as President.
