Yesterday, a submitting by Special Counsel John Durham revealed that Igor Danchenko, who labored as a key contributor to the discredited Steele file funded by the Clinton marketing campaign, was later placed on the FBI payroll as an informant. The disclosure rocked Washington and raised extra questions of the FBI’s eagerness to pursue any allegations towards Donald Trump regardless of being warned that the file gave the impression to be a automobile for Russian disinformation.
Danchenko is going through with 5 counts of mendacity to the bureau throughout that relationship. His trial is scheduled for subsequent month in federal courtroom in Alexandria, Virginia.
The submitting states that “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.”
