There have been days when the patriots out on the fruited plain doubted that Special Counsel John Durham actually exists let alone is actually doing any sort of investigating into the malfeasance of government in the 2016 presidential election.
And then headlines like this appear:
Russian analyst who worked on Steele dossier arrested
The arrest of Igor Danchenko stems from a broad investigation led by special counsel John Durham into the origins of the FBI’s probe of Mr. Trump’s alleged links to the Kremlin. The New York Times was first to report Danchenko was taken into custody. It’s unknown what Danchenko is charged with.
Danchenko, employed by Steele, was the primary researcher for what came to be known as the Steele dossier, according to the New York Times. The document was a collection of opposition research notes that contained unproven claims about Mr. Trump and his 2016 campaign, some of which have since been shown to be false. The dossier came under scrutiny after some of the accusations contained in it were cited by FBI investigators in an application to secure a warrant to surveil a former Trump campaign aide, Carter Page.
This dossier was the document used as a basis for illegal spying to happen via a secret warrant issued by the secret FISA court, which was actually put into place under the Carter administration and strengthened thanks to the Patriot Act, one of the results of the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attack. As the quote above indicates, the allegations listed in the report have been proven to be false.
Why is this important?
Steele was hired around June 2016 by a Washington-based investigative firm, Fusion GPS, to examine possible personal or business ties between Mr. Trump, who was then a Republican running for president, and Russia, as well as any links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Durham, the former top federal prosecutor in Connecticut, was selected by former Attorney General William Barr in May 2019 to scrutinize the origins of the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, known as “Crossfire Hurricane.” Barr then appointed Durham as special counsel in late 2020.
His probe transitioned into a criminal investigation in the fall of 2019 and, before Danchenko’s arrest, led to two criminal prosecutions: former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who pleaded guilty to a single count of making a false statement, and former Perkins Coie attorney Michael Sussman, for making a false statement to the FBI.
Essentially, John Durham is unraveling the plot to spy on and smear President Donald Trump and is working his way through the circle of conspirators to get to the higher-level people who wanted some sort of dirt, any sort of dirt, on President Trump to be used in gutter politics.
It did not work.
