Durham Using Danchenko Trial to Expose Deep FBI Corruption

'I hate to say this, but like a new shoe drops every day... '

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Special Counsel John Durham, who former Attorney General Bill Barr assigned to investigate the Russia collusion hoax, has used his trial against Igor Danchenko to expose the FBI’s duplicity.

Danchenko stands trial in Alexandria, Virginia, on allegations that he lied to the FBI while informing on presidential candidate Donald Trump in connection with Christopher Steele’s dossier.

Danchenko, who the FBI investigated years prior for ties to Russian intelligence, was Steele’s primary source for the dossier. After the FBI investigated him, the agency hired him as a confidential human source for three years.

During the trial, Durham questioned FBI senior analyst Brian Auten, who revealed that the FBI could not independently verify Danchenko or Steele’s claims in October 2016, Just the News reported.

Auten said the FBI marked the unverfied information as “verified” to secure a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant from a federal judge. Based on false information, the FBI then spied on Donald Trump’s campaign and on campaign advisor Carter Page.

“On October 21, 2016, did you have any information to corroborate that information?” Durham asked in reference to the FISA warrant on Page.

“No,” Auten said.

Then-President Barack Obama’s FBI, along with the Hillary Clinton campaign, felt so desperate to verify Danchenko’s slanderous information that it offered to pay Steele a $1 million bounty to corroborate it, but he could not.

Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., commented on Obama and Clinton’s campaign to destroy Trump.

“I hate to say this, but like a new shoe drops every day,” Nunes said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. “And I mean, look, I don’t know how you describe this $1 million payment or potential payment to Steele as anything other than what it is. It was a bounty program to get Donald Trump.”
