As the Igor Danchenko trial gets underway, bombshell revelations were publicized that the impetus for the entire Russian Collusion narrative were additionally hampered by the fact that former British spy Christopher Steele could not support any of the salacious allegations initially provided.
Danchenko was arrested last year on five counts of lying to the FBI during their investigation, which they knew to be based on false premises by 2017, regarding the information he provided to Steele – information that would later form the bulk of the corrupt, Clinton-funded dossier.
Fox News reported on the huge, if not unsurprising, news:
FBI supervisory counterintelligence analyst Brian Auten was the first witness in the trial of Igor Danchenko, the Russian national who served as the primary sub-source for Steele’s anti-Trump dossier and has been charged with five counts of making false statements to the bureau.
Auten testified that he and a group of FBI agents went overseas in early October 2021 to speak with Steele about the dossier. During questioning by Special Counsel John Durham on Tuesday, Auten said that during those meetings the FBI offered Steele $1 million if he could corroborate allegations in the dossier. Auten testified that Steele could not do so.
Auten also said that the FBI had no corroboration of allegations in the dossier but nevertheless took that information and inserted it into the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The infamous Steele Dossier, used by the deep state to target Donald Trump as both a candidate and later throughout his entire presidency, has since been thoroughly debunked. It was nothing more than a Hillary campaign misinformation campaign, funded by them but run through multiple channels to obfuscate its untrue origins.

Fox continued its excellent coverage of the testimony given by writing that it wasn’t just Stelle who struggled to back up his assertions. As it turns out – again, not surprising at this point – no one could. Fox said:
Meanwhile, Auten also said the FBI reached out to other intelligence agencies to see if they could corroborate information relating to dossier, which was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee through law firm Perkins Coie.
Auten repeatedly admitted under questioning from Durham that the FBI never received corroboration of the information in the Steele dossier, but he stressed that it was used in the initial FISA application and in the three subsequent renewals.
No doubt, Danchenko will be a fall man here. He will be found guilty and the story of the completely-fabricated Russian Collusion hoax will once more disappear. In the meantime, the Durham investigation still has plenty of dirt on Clinton folks like John Sussman and Robby Mook, and certainly must know that everything that happened was approved by none other than Hillary Clinton.
Clinton, though, like the unpunished criminal Hunter Biden, is so far avoiding any consequences for her unethical, illegal, and damaging behaviors.
