The FBI is rotten to the core.
Special Prosecutor John Durham just dropped a bombshell on Tuesday.
According to Durham, Igor Danchenko, the primary source of the now-discredited Steele dossier, was a paid informant of the FBI.
Danchenko, who was already charged with five counts of lying to the FBI, was said to be a “confidential human source” during the fake investigation into Trump/Russia collusion.
It’s no coincidence that the FBI is now moving on President Donald Trump’s closest allies.
They’re scared of the actual truth.
These FBI raids are just a distraction to keep all of the “normies” in line.

Just the News has the breaking development:
In a bombshell revelation, Special Prosecutor John Durham revealed Tuesday in court filings that the FBI paid a Russian businessman as a confidential human source in the investigation of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign even though it had prior concerns that businessman was tied to Moscow’s intelligence services.
Durham persuaded the federal judge in the upcoming trial of Igor Danchenko to unseal a motion revealing that Danchenko, the primary source of the now-discredited Steele dossier, was paid by the FBI as a confidential human source for more than three years until the fall of 2020 when he was terminated for lying to agents.
Danchenko is charged with five counts of lying to the bureau during that relationship and faces trial next month in federal court in the Virginia suburbs of Washington D.C.
“In March 2017, the FBI signed the defendant up as a paid confidential human source of the FBI,” Durham’s unsealed court filing disclosed for the first time. “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.”
The revelation means that the FBI first fired former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, the author of the Hillary Clinton-funded dossier, as a human source in November 2016 for having unauthorized contacts with the news media. And it then turned around a few months later and hired Steele’s primary informer to work with the bureau even after determining some of Danchenko’s statements in the Steele dossier were uncorroborated or exaggerated.
“While Durham’s latest revelations are extremely damning for Danchenko, they are far more damning for the FBI who appears to have perfidiously used the CHS mechanism to take Danchenko off the grid and bury the fact that he had disavowed the dossier.”https://t.co/nafCh54kSC

Newsmax with more details:
A filing unsealed Tuesday said the FBI paid Danchenko as a “confidential human source” (CHS) during the years then-President Donald Trump was under investigation. The Russian had supplied the most salacious accusations in the Steele dossier.
Durham claims that Danchenko, hired by the FBI In March 2017, remained a CHS during special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the accusations against the Trump campaign.
“The news [in the filing] shocked many of us who have closely followed the Russian collusion controversy for years,” legal analyst Jonathan Turley wrote Wednesday. “The FBI showed a zeal to investigate Trump and his campaign that seemed to border on the blind obsessive.”

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that this bombshell has been revealed just as the corrupt FBI makes more moves against President Donald Trump’s allies.
Durham should investigate the Biden raid on Trump. It is becoming increasingly clear the raid was part of a cover-up operation to claw back documents about FBI/Deep State abuse of Trump related to Russia (and Ukraine!).

FBI (DOJ/Mueller) coup cabal spying on and trying to jail Trump based on false Russian collusion smear was actually paying Russian–who they knew to be lying and suspected to be a spy–for dirt on Trump. And, thanks, Durham for telling us this over 3 years after your appointment!
