John Durham’s never-ending quest to expose the corrupt parties responsible for disseminating knowingly false information about the Donald Trump campaign and presidency has led to the biombshell reveal that one of the primary sources for the entire fake news witch hunt was on the FBI’s payroll.
Techno Frog, writing on his Substack, revealed that some recently unsealed information paints the already-fraudulent exercise in an even darker new light.
Today, Special Counsel John Durham moved to unseal this motion in limine in the false statements case against Igor Danchenko.
This motion provides new information on the details of Danchenko’s lies to the FBI, further information on how Special Counsel Mueller ignored Danchenko’s false statements, expected testimony from Clinton-connected executive Charles Dolan, and one crazy development.
But we’ll start with the the most damning development: Danchenko was on the FBI payroll as a confidential human source (CHS) from March 2017 through October 2020.
Now, the timeline here is important, because as Techo Frog digs deeper, he writes that the fact Danchenko was put on the payroll wasn’t to get information – it was to protect itself from investigations into its own corrupt practices.
Danchenko being a CHS also served another purpose: it protected the Bureau and the Mueller Special Counsel from revealing their “sources and methods.” How do you hide misconduct? Bury the witness.
Amazingly, Danchenko’s still-unknown payments as a Confidential Human Source came after it was known he had lied to the FBI, leading to be charged with five counts of making false statements. He remained on the payroll as a CHS for over three years.
As review, the Steele Dossier – written and compiled by disgraced British spy Christopher Steele, was the basis of the entire Russia, Russia, Russia nonsense and the FBI’s ability to obtain a warrant to tap into Donald Trump’s network, most famously with the wiretap of Trump associate Carter Page. Igor Danchenko was Steele’s primary source for the claims made within his notorious dossier.
Steele himself was hired by opposition research firm FusionGPS, itslef hired by Clinton crony Marc Elias’s Perkins Coie law firm. Funding was funneled from both the Clinton campaign and Democrat National Committee, making it seem all but impossible that Trump’s presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton, knew about what was happening behind the scenes.
In fact, it seems almost certain that every charge against Trump made by the Clinton campaign and deep state operatives were in fact being leveraged by Clinton instead in one of the biggest gaslighting projections known to modern American politics.
Igor Danchenko was arrested last November in relation to the five counts of providing false information and has a trial scheduled to begin next month.
