The FBI is about to take another lump.
The Durham probe has now revealed that one of the paid informants the FBI was using was Igor Danchenko.
Danchenko was the primary source used by Christopher Steele in the dossier that was at the root of the Russian collusion probe against Trump.
Danchenko was reportedly being paid for three years by the FBI.
In addition to being a source for the Steele dossier, he also allegedly had Russian intelligence connections.
He was terminated as an informant in 2020 for lying to FBI agents.
Danchenko is now facing five counts of lying to federal agents, with his trial scheduled to begin in October.
Durham’s filing stated, “In March 2017, the FBI signed the defendant up as a paid confidential human source of the FBI.
“The FBI terminated its source relationship with the defendant in October 2020. As alleged in further detail below, the defendant lied to FBI agents during several of these interviews.”
This now means that both Christopher Steele and Danchenko were on the FBI’s payroll at one point.
Even with all this evidence, we all know everything depends on the jury pool and the judge that gets the case.
If the Danchenko trial is anything like the last one, it will be over before it starts.
If Danchenko walks free, it is pretty much the end of the Durham investigation in terms of having any real impact.
