Igor Danchenko served as a source for the discredited, anti-Trump Steele dossier

Posted BY: Jasmine | NwoReport

A jury on Tuesday found Russian national Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source of the anti-Trump dossier, not guilty on all four counts of making false statements to the FBI. 

The charges had been brought by Special Counsel John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the FBI’s original Trump-Russia investigation. 

The Danchenko trial is the second out of Durham’s years-long investigation, and the second time a jury delivered an acquittal. 

Former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann was found not guilty of making false statements to the FBI in June. 

“We’ve known all along that Mr. Danchenko was innocent,” Danchenko’s attorney Stuart Sears said Tuesday. “We’re happy now that the American public knows that as well.”

U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga acquitted Danchenko on one of the five counts last week after the prosecution laid out its case. The decision came after a standard Rule 29 proceeding where the defense brings a motion to dismiss the case, arguing that the prosecution has not brought sufficient evidence to prove it. 


Count One had alleged that Danchenko lied to FBI Special Agent Kevin Helson when he said he had not “talked” to longtime Democratic operative and PR executive Charles Dolan about information that went into the Steele Dossier.
