New Durham bombshell: FBI paid Russian accused of lying as a confidential informant against Trump

JTN

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.” more

  1. Of course they put him on the payroll. On the payroll, he fell under the sources and methods umbrella and so the FBI could refuse to answer any questions or produce any documents having to do with him and what he told them.

  2. Further they’ll dare Trump to “obstruct” the “ongoing investigation” if he releases the CH docs still hidden at his compound.

    When will Trump learn?

  3. …so, FBI agents going to jail for treason, for election interference, or at least getting fired and their pensions revoked for partisan political manipulation under color of law?

    No?

    …that’s what I thought…

  4. It’s called “bootstrapping”. The FBI has mastered the art of “investigating” so-called “crimes” of whose evidence came entirely from fabulists employed by the FBI themselves. They do this constantly.
