"We have already seen Iran sending spoof emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President (Donald) Trump," Ratcliffe added. "You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours, or you may have even been one of the recipients of those emails."
Ratcliffe did not explain what he meant by his statement that the emails -- which were sent to registered voters from "[email protected]" and warned recipients to "Vote for Trump or else!" -- were intended to damage the President.

So Ratcliffe thinks that threatening emails would not make the people they purport to be from - the Proud Boys - look bad. He thinks they would make Trump look bad. ... Because ... ? Is he saying the Proud Boys are controlled by Trump? I see he skates over the fact that the intimidated voters were Democrats. So, if they thought the threats were real, it'd hurt Biden's vote, not Trump's.
Or was he just desperate to paint Trump as The Real Victim Here?
Can someone explain Ratcliffe's claims?
