(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Special Counsel John Durham has issued 30 subpoenas in his pursuit of Russian national Igor Danchenko, who allegedly lied to the FBI about his role as the “source” of Christopher Steele‘s Clinton-funded, fabricated dossier regarding President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.

Danchenko was indicted on Nov. 4, 2021 on five counts of lying to the FBI regarding information he allegedly gave to Steele, to which Danchenko has pleaded not guilty, reported Fox News.

According to the indictment, Steele “relied primarily on a U.S.-based Russian national, Igor Danchenko . . . to collect the information that ultimately formed the core of the allegations found in the Company Reports.”

Furthermore, Danchenko then “lied to FBI agents” during interviews meant to ascertain the veracity of the dossier.

“Danchenko made false statements regarding the sources of certain information that he provided to a U.K. investigative firm that was then included in reports prepared by the U.K. investigative firm and subsequently passed to the FBI,” the Department of Justice wrote in a Nov. 2021 press release.

The trial date is set for Oct. 11, 2022.

Durham turned to Danchenko after he failed to obtain a conviction in his case against Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann, who lied about working for Clinton while delivering false information about President Trump to the FBI.

A friendly D.C. jury suggested that Durham had not proved his case “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Danchenko, however, will appear before U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga, a Bush appointee who also was recently appointed by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to serve on the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
