Steele source Igor Danchenko faces John Durham in court this fall​

John Durham's next big hurdle is his only remaining criminal case — the one against Igor Danchenko, British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s alleged main source for his infamous anti-Trump dossier.

Danchenko was charged “with five counts of making false statements to the FBI,” which Durham says he made about the information he provided to Steele for the dossier. The Department of Justice's watchdog said FBI interviews with Danchenko “raised significant questions about the reliability of the Steele election reporting” and concluded Danchenko undermined Steele’s unfounded claims of a “well-developed conspiracy” between former President Donald Trump and Russia.

Danchenko has pleaded not guilty and will face a Virginia jury in October. The Russia-born lawyer and researcher who has lived and worked in the Washington, D.C., area for many years was indicted in November for lying to the bureau. He allegedly relied on a network of Russian contacts but undermined key collusion claims when interviewed by the FBI. According to Durham’s false statements charges, he anonymously sourced a fabricated claim about Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to longtime Hillary Clinton ally Chuck Dolan, who spent many years, including 2016, doing work for Russian businesses and the Russian government.

Danchenko visited Dolan and others at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow in June 2016 and also flew from Moscow to London to meet with Steele “to provide him with information that would later appear" in the dossier.

The Durham indictment also says the Steele source lied about Sergei Millian, an American citizen born in Belarus who moved to the United States in the early 2000s and founded a trade group called the Russian American Chamber of Commerce in the USA.

The prosecutor said Danchenko falsely told the FBI that in late July 2016, he had received a phone call from Millian wherein he claimed Millian told him about a well-developed conspiracy of cooperation between Trump and Russians and further claimed that Millian had agreed to meet with him in New York. Durham said that in reality, “Danchenko never received such a phone call or such information” from Millian and that Millian never agreed to meet up with him, saying Danchenko had “fabricated” these claims.

DURHAM REQUESTS 30 SUBPOENAS FOR TESTIMONY IN DANCHENKO TRIAL

The trial made headlines again this week when a court filing by Durham on Wednesday requested that the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia issue “thirty subpoenas” for possible witness testimony for the trial starting on Oct. 11.

U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga, who is handling the case, was nominated by President George W. Bush in 2008, and he has also been on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court since 2020. The judge had ruled in May that Durham must provide Danchenko’s team with details on possible witnesses by the start of September.

“To date, the Government has produced to the defense over 5,000 documents in classified discovery and nearly 61,000 documents in unclassified discovery. The Government believes that the 5,000 classified documents produced to date represent the bulk of the classified discovery in this matter,” Durham told the court in early May.

The judge ruled in June that “the information is properly classified.”

Durham discovered that Danchenko was investigated by the FBI as a possible “threat to national security," according to documents declassified by then-Attorney General William Barr.

Fiona Hill, who worked at the Brookings Institution with Danchenko for years before joining Trump’s National Security Council, introduced Danchenko and Steele a decade ago, and Durham says she introduced Danchenko and Dolan in early 2016.

Steele is best known for his discredited anti-Trump dossier, which DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded in December 2019 played a "central and essential" role in the FBI's flawed effort to obtain wiretap orders against former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The ex-spy was working for Putin-linked oligarch Oleg Deripaska before, during, and after his time targeting Trump. Deripaska paid Steele to investigate Manafort after accusing the Republican operative of stealing millions from him, and Steele sought help from Fusion in early 2016. The firm soon hired Steele to conduct anti-Trump research.

The trial comes after Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann had been charged in September by Durham after reportedly concealing his two clients — Neustar's chief technology officer, Rodney Joffe, and Clinton's 2016 campaign — from FBI General Counsel James Baker when he pushed debunked allegations of a secret line of communication between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa-Bank during a September 2016 meeting. A jury found him not guilty earlier this year.

Durham has obtained one guilty plea from former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who admitted he falsified a document during the bureau’s efforts to renew a FISA against Page.

Surprise! Durham Is Still Coming...​

He's Going To Prove The Clinton Campaign Paid A Russian Agent To Accuse Innocent Americans of Being Russian Agents. And The FBI Knew This & Used The Steele Dossier For A FISA Warrant Anyway​

I had just gotten back from an appointment with my chiropractor in Sarasota and was eating dinner as I scrolled through my Telegram feed to see what I’d missed in the day’s news when I came across the kind of post I’ve been expecting to come across for 2 months now.
It was from my friend Kyle, who goes by the name “Just Human” on social media:
“Durham’s brief court filing on Wednesday requested the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia to issue “thirty subpoenas” for an “appearance before said Court at Alexandria, Virginia,” starting on Oct. 11 “to testify on behalf of the United States.” The potential witnesses are not named, but a copy of the blank subpoena reads that “YOU ARE COMMANDED to appear.””
Kyle followed that up with this:
LOL! at everyone who bought the nonsense that Durham was done, winding down, lacking funds, etc.
Take note of who tried to sell that narrative to you and don't buy anything else they are selling unless it comes with receipts.
You can keep track of the Special Counsel's Office here:
You can keep track of developments in the Danchenko case here:

Durham used a false statement trial with Sussmann to map out the criminal conspiracy of the Alfa Bank Hoax manufactured to target Donald Trump & his campaign associates. A criminal conspiracy hoax involving, in no particular order: the Clinton campaign, Perkins Coie, Fusion GPS, Rodney Joffe and his cyber security employees, Orbis Business Intelligence, and various former officials at the FBI & the DOJ.

The real goal of the trial wasn't to convict a DC lawyer with no criminal record of a single false statement charge that would've led to a few months probation and a fine. It was to pull the curtain back and establish the coordination between the conspirators and establish on record these conspirators will lie to the court about attorney/client privilege to duck federal grand jury subpoenas.

The Sussmann trial reveals the 'template' for the upcoming Danchenko trial, which is now just one month away. Sussmann was the Alfa Bank hoax criminal conspiracy, Danchenko is the Steele Dossier hoax criminal conspiracy.

Nobody knew a thing about Hillary Clinton's private spies all up in the federal agencies databases, hired to provide cybersecurity but also illegally tracking and stealing nonpublic info off those databases targeting Clinton's political opposition.

Until Durham proved it in court during the Sussmann trial.

I encourage everybody again to read this because I have a fairly good grasp of what Durham will be laying out about the Steele Dossier criminal conspiracy during this trial.


By the time Durham starts dropping indictments for the clear criminal conspiracy all these people clearly and obviously engaged in, nobody will be able to say he's some rabid attack dog making stuff out of thin air while pursuing an embattled Donald Trump's political enemies.

Instead even much of the MSM will have to grudgingly admit: "OK yeah, he documented this stuff in the two trials he did thus far. He does have some evidence for this insane conspiracy charge he just filed against..."

Meanwhile anons will be going "ABOUT F**KING TIME!!!!"

Durham literally got it on the record that Clinton was paying private company federal cybersecurity contractors to spy on her own private enemies list, and their activities included stealing classifed/nonpublic data off of federal servers and constructing Russian collusion hoaxes with them.

He got several FBI personnel during the Sussmann trial to state on the stand they are currently under investigation.

He got it admitted as evidence in the courtroom.

And nobody grasps the consequences of this.

Even as he's already showing some of what he's going to prove in the Danchenko trial.

We live in interesting times.


Remember what my other big theory was about the Danchenko trial, now that the theory that the FBI brought him in as a CHS has been confirmed:

Some of the stuff Joffe and his merry crewe stole off those federal databases based on Shrillary's private enemies list ended up in the STEELE DOSSIER.

I fully believe Durham's gonna drop that during this upcoming trial.

Then he's gonna drop indictments on the people who stole all that classified/nonpublic info.
