Huge news breaking, the Russian involved in the anti Trump ‘Steele Dossier’ Igor Danchenko has today been arrested.
The dossier that was used to justify FBI wiretapping on Trump’s campaign, was primarily sourced by Danchenko. The contents of which would make it into former British spy Christopher Steele’s now-notorious dossier.
The dossier ended up being used by the FBI to obtain permission to spy on Trump’s campaign, with this counter-intelligence operation eventually spiralling into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ‘Russiagate’ investigation. Mueller would later find that no collusion occurred between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
The charges against Danchenko are unknown, as the indictment against him remains sealed. However, before becoming involved in the Steele Dossier debacle, Danchenko had come to the attention of US authorities before, and was investigated by the FBI a decade earlier for allegedly serving as a “Russian agent” in the US. Danchenko denied the accusation.
