There was a bombshell news story that came out on Tuesday that I wanted to tell everyone about. Previously, we knew that a Democrat PR firm and a Democrat law firm were behind the Trump-Russia collusion dossier. This is the dossier that the FBI used to get a warrant to spy on Trump’s election campaign staff during the election. Now there is news about the source of the dossier.
Margot Cleveland writes about it at The Federalist:
Our federal government paid for Russian disinformation to frame the president of the United States for colluding with Russia.
The FBI put a contributor to the Hillary Clinton campaign’s Donald Trump smear dossier on FBI payroll as a confidential human source after investigating Igor Danchenko for allegedly spying for the Russian government, revealed Special Counsel John Durham in a court filing unsealed by a Virginia federal court yesterday. The filing contains this bombshell and seven other significant details about the Democrat-led plot to use U.S. intelligence agencies to deny Americans the results of their choice for president in 2016.
The FBI made Danchenko a confidential human source, providing him and the FBI’s use of him “national security” cover, in March 2017 and terminated that designation in October 2020, according to the court filing unsealed on Sept. 13. Danchenko is the originator of the false claim trumpeted all over global media that Donald Trump told prostitutes to pee on beds the Obamas had slept in in a Russian hotel.
The FBI had previously targeted Danchenko, Christopher Steele’s primary source, as a possible Russian agent. But after discovering Danchenko’s identity as Steele’s Sub-Source No. 1, rather than investigate whether Danchenko had been feeding Steele Russian disinformation, the FBI paid Danchenko as a CHS.
Danchenko faces trial next month on five counts of lying to the FBI related to his role as Steele’s primary sub-source.
That’s pretty mild compared to this revelation:
A second shocker from the Sept. 13 court filing concerned Danchenko’s hiring as a paid CHS.
“In March 2017, the FBI signed the defendant up as a paid confidential human source of the FBI,” the special counsel revealed in the motion. It was not until October 2020 that “the FBI terminated its source relationship with” Danchenko.
Simply put: Our federal government paid for Russian disinformation to frame the president of the United States for colluding with Russia.
The FBI did this knowing that Danchenko “was associate of two FBI counterintelligence subjects”; “had previous contact with the Russian Embassy and known Russian intelligence officers”; “had also informed one Russian intelligence officer that he had interest in entering the Russian diplomatic service”; and, according to a think-tank employee, suggested he had contacts willing to purchase classified information.
Also, the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team continued to use Danchenko as a paid CHS even knowing his stories were fabrications. In fact, Mueller’s team was so focused on getting Trump, it completely ignored whether the Steele dossier included Russian disinformation.
Hillary Clinton was involved in collusion with Russians in order to interfere with the 2016 election:
Not only did the FBI pay for Russian disinformation, so did Clinton, and she did so to interfere in the 2016 election. The public already knew from Durham’s (failed) prosecution of Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann that the campaign paid Fusion GPS for opposition research. Fusion in turn hired Steele to dig up dirt on Trump.
That trial also revealed that Clinton personally approved pushing a smaller aspect of the Russia-collusion hoax, namely the Alfa-Bank secret communications hoax.
From yesterday’s filing we now know the primary sub-source for the Steele dossier paid for by Clinton was not merely a Russian national who fabricated the “intel,” but also a suspected Russian agent. Tuesday’s motion also highlighted the fact that longtime Clinton backer “Dolan maintained a relationship with several high-ranking Russian government officials who appear in the Steele Reports.”
So, for all her vapors over Trump’s connections with Russia and his supposed collusion with Russia to interfere in the election, the evidence shows Clinton holds that dishonor.
There’s another report on these events here from Just The News, which is centrist.
I definitely recommend reading Margot’s article about this, to find out how corrupt and untrustworthy the FBI really are. If they don’t want people to think of them as corrupt and untrustworthy, then they should quit going after whistleblowers and clean their own house. They did this to themselves. They hired partisan Democrats and now they are shocked that there were no checks and balances to stop the treason that followed. Instead of pointing fingers at us for judging them, they should point fingers at themselves. These are incompetent, immoral people. No different from the secret police in any other fascist socialist regime.
