Skip to comments.John Durham Can’t Discuss Trump Dossier Source’s Alleged Links to Russian Intelligence at Trial: Judge
Posted on 10/05/2022 8:02:57 PM PDT by Zhang Fei
Special counsel John Durham and his team cannot tell jurors about how the primary source for the anti-Donald Trump dossier has had links to Russian intelligence, a U.S. judge ruled on Oct. 4.
The FBI opened an investigation into Igor Danchenko, the dossier source, after a colleague of Danchenko’s tipped off authorities, saying Danchenko had said he could get the person money in exchange for classified information.
The FBI investigation advanced after agents learned that Danchenko had been in touch with the Russian embassy and known Russian intelligence officers and had in the past been interested in becoming a Russian intelligence officer himself. But the bureau closed the probe in 2010, claiming that Danchenko had left the country.
Danchenko later told agents, in 2017, that he had contact with multiple people he believed were Russian intelligence officers.
Durham’s team asked the court in September to let prosecutors discuss what the FBI learned during the investigation.
“The Government anticipates that a potential defense strategy at trial will be to argue that the defendant’s alleged lies about the sourcing of the Steele Reports were not material because they had no affect on, and could not have affected, the course of the FBI’s investigations concerning potential coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian Government. Thus, the Government should be able to introduce evidence of this prior counterintelligence investigation (and that (sic) facts underlying that investigation) as direct evidence of the materiality of the defendant’s false statements,” prosecutors said at the time.
“Such evidence is admissible because in any investigation of potential collusion between the Russian Government and a political campaign, it is appropriate and necessary for the FBI to consider whether information it receives via foreign nationals may be a product of Russian intelligence efforts or disinformation.”

As pointed out earlier, many of the stories linking to Ukraine are actually links to Putin, who (1) attempted to bribe Biden through his son, Hunter, by having the mayor of Moscow and the pro-Russia owner of Burisma hand him a few million dollars and (2) attempted to foment discord in the US, following the classic Roman stratagem of setting one barbarian against another, by colluding with the Democrats to link Trump to Putin himself, through Putin’s agent in Ukraine Igor Danchenko.
And this judge was appointed by...?
Does it matter what he tells the jury, since no black Democrat jury he could possibly seat would hand over a guilty verdict?
If that isn’t crooked! Someone is going out of their way to hide what the Clintons/Democrats did and make the false allegations stick on Trump.
But Orange Man Bad is always guilty. Guilty, guilty, guilty, as in Russia, Russia, Russia! That is what any likely juror has been brainwashed to believe.
Great grounds for a later appeal if needed.
All this from Hillary’s Russia, Russia, Russia? It sure sounds like more of the same garbage. This has no more to do with Putin than Clinton’s fantasies. This is all DS DC coverup. This dodge has been used since the Mueller “investigation”. That’s part of the reason why Durham’s and sham Mar-a-Lago investigation/raid are ongoing. Oh let’s see, Biden taking bribes in Eastern Europe, let’s look at all the real evidence. Yes, it must be the Russians, Biden and the noble Ukes? No, nothing to see here, move along. I can’t wait for your next big shovel full.
You are clueless.
You’re worst than Whitehouse shills because you’re on Freerepublic.
THE BIG FIX IS NOW ACTIVATED!
I fully expect to learn that John Durham requested this action by the judge to protect the FBI
🇺🇸 “As pointed out earlier, many of the stories linking to Ukraine are actually links to Putin, who (1) attempted to bribe Biden through his son, Hunter, by having the mayor of Moscow and the pro-Russia owner of Burisma hand him a few million dollars and (2) attempted to foment discord in the US, following the classic Roman stratagem of setting one barbarian against another, by colluding with the Democrats to link Trump to Putin himself, through Putin’s agent in Ukraine Igor Danchenko.”
There are a number of non-revisiinist *Open Source resources which prove these points in spades.
🔹️ It is also true the same types of activity went on through the entirety of the Clinton Administration. Clinton also severely manipulated Ukrainian domestic, economic, finance, and defense policy to the detriment of Ukraine, and to the benefit of Moscow.
Ukraine truly suffered under Clinton and those directing Yeltsin, and realistically Putin toward the end.
Multiple assassination type events in favor of Kremlin Oligarchs, massive energy food, and finance manipulation in favor of Russian CIS reciprocal policy control’s, and strategic weapon’s.
It was a raw and sickening leftist, fascist type DC/Moscow team.
🔹️ But to your points above, consider the timeline.
While all the intentional team effort and massive corruption was taking place, the Obama Administration (and really Clinton), were simultaneously:
— Crushing US energy and supporting Russian energy, and pushing Germany and Central Europe toward Russian energy dependency
— Transferring 20% percent of US strategic Uranium supply to Putin, which included Bill Clinton literally “wining and dining” with Putin in the Kremlin, and Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Bob Mueller, Susan Rice, literally etc, etc, etc...
— Transferring massive US 5th and 6th gen, and US weapons R&D military technologies to the Kremlin through the Skolkavo project. These included US/Chinese scale cyber warfare architecture and backbone, hypersonic missile, laser weapon related technologies, and on and on...
And there too was large scale money laundering, and payments to the Clinton Foundation, to the reported order of at least $145.5 Millio Dollars.
🔹️ ALL DOVETAILING WITHIN THE SAME TIMELINE !
You are correct!
No Raids Durham!
The Sussmann Judge’s wife represents (and represented Lisa Page) and argued she and Strzok did nothing wrong.
That Judge made some whacky rulings and Durham was happy as could be with the Judge.
Every single ruling went against Stone, Manafort, Flynn, and Papadopolous - and the Judges made early outrageous statements about the guilt of the defendants. Now, with the low level players in the Get Trump Op, all the rulings are suddenly in favor of the defendants.
Durham is keeping things alive only so Dems and dirty Republicans can claim there’s an open Investigation, and act as if it’s real.
DC wants this all to quietly die - while running out the Clock.
The Supreme Court is in DC, and Roberts was happy as pie with his FISA Court as they let everything go in order to get Trump.
“...while running out the Clock.”
A. God’s Clock is the only one that really matters.
B. There’s an eternal, flaming Hell, and MANY famous people you know of will be there.
C. Some you think won’t will.
D. Some you’re sure will won’t.
E. The only one you control is you, so make certain you’re not on Satan’s Guest List.
Now, pretty much no matter what, you’ll be able to sleep nights knowing there’s no real escape for these crooks.
So it’s perfectly fine to falsely testify that Trump colluded with Russia, but don’t dare let a jury hear that Hillary colluded with Russia.
My memory (a little run down for now) also tells me something vague about Biden, money and influence for or against a Ukrainian prosecutor. I might try to find that again.
Here. The Ukrainian prosecutor was going after Biden’s pro-Russia oligarch.
Report: Joe Biden Pressured Ukraine to Fire Top Prosecutor After Burisma Lobbying Effort
by HARIS ALIC
November 4, 2019
“In March 2016, Biden issued an ultimatum to then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko: either the government fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, or the U.S. would rescind upwards of $1 billion in aid....Shokin was ramping up his investigation into both Burisma and Zlochvesky. Shokin’s probe had progressed far enough that he was able to convince the Ukrainian courts in early 2016 to seize Zlochvesky’s remaining assets in the country. The oligarch only evaded arrest because he was already hiding abroad after having fled Ukraine in 2014 when a pro-western uprising toppled his allies in the country’s then-pro-Russian government.”
This is not a DC jury...
