Danchenko Walks: Leftwing Alexandria, Virginia Jury Once Again Acquits a Guilty-as-Sin Russiagate Figure

Alexandria, Virginia is bluer than an incel's balls. It's a suburb for well-to-do DC liberals.

Of course they acquitted Danchenko, just as a DC jury acquitted Hillary Clinton's lawyer Michael Sussman who lied when he brought a Russiagate allegation to the FBI, the one about the Russian bank Alfa secretly communicating with Trump's servers (it was always a lie), and then lied about representing the Hillary Clinton campaign. He lied and said he was just a Concerned Citizen Acting Independently for the Public Weal.

He was being paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign to ferry this lie to the FBI, and his own billing records prove it.


And now Danchenko, who also lied about Hillary Clinton's lies to the FBI, gets similarly acquitted.

It's almost as if leftwing juries want to pay off their allies for having attempted to Rig the 2016 election, and for Rigging the 2020 election.

First order of business in 24: The power of removal of politically-affected cases away from Washington, DC to non-biased jurisdictions to get fair trials. Both prosecutors and defendants should be permitted to remove trials in this way. No more Home Court Advantage for Democrat Criminals.

The Danchenko case went to the jury yesterday. (Boy they sure were snappy with that "not guilty" decision! But then, they were quick on the Michael Sussman acquittal, too!)

The defense used the testimony of an FBI agent, Danchenko's handler, as its main argument that Danchenko didn't lie. The FBI agent claimed Danchenko was a great source, despite providing no actual verifiable intelligence.

Durham's rebuttal noted that the FBI was "the elephant in the room," and that its failures could be explained either by "incompetence" -- or by "working in coordination" with some unnamed third party (that is, the Hilary For President organization).

In delivering the prosecution's rebuttal summation in the Danchenko trial this morning, special counsel John Durham labeled the FBI "the elephant in the room."

Durham was emphatic that in prosecuting Igor Danchenko for alleged lies about his sources for information that ended up in the bogus "Steele dossier," the special counsel's office was not defending the bureau. As reported by the Washington Examiner's Jerry Dunleavy, who is covering the trial, Durham concluded that "the FBI failed here," observing that it "mishandled the investigation" and that its agents "didn't do what they should have done." Durham added that the explanation for the bureau's appalling performance could be that it is "simply incompetent" or possibly that it was "working in coordination." He does not appear to have stated with whom the FBI might have worked in coordination; the implication points to the Clinton campaign, which sponsored the dossier -- opposition research based on which Hillary Clinton argued that Trump was a Putin puppet.


In his testimony, Helson [Danchenko's handler] claimed that Danchenko was a valuable informant whose termination as such harmed American national security. In his examination of Helson, Durham pointed out that Helson had failed to do basic due diligence about Danchenko, apparently failed to discover that the bureau had previously suspected him of being a Russian asset, and paid him $200,000 in taxpayers' money over three years for intelligence, much of which came from "open sources" (i.e., publicly available information). Helson wanted to pay Danchenko another $346,000 in a lump sum, but the FBI nixed that.

Kimberly Strassel makes the case that Durham has been prosecuting the wrong criminals all along.

Special counsel John Durham stepped into a federal courtroom this week, officially to try Igor Danchenko for lying to the FBI as part of the 2016 Russia-collusion scam. Unofficially, Mr. Durham is putting the Federal Bureau of Investigation itself on trial for incompetence and political chicanery.

That's the now unmistakable mission of the Durham prosecutions. The special counsel is using tried-and-true "lying to the feds" charges to unravel for the public the hoax--which on its face requires painting the FBI as dupes. Yet every filing and witness question is instead building Mr. Durham's case of rank FBI malfeasance.
Mr. Danchenko pleaded not guilty, His trial--and prior to it Mr. Durham's unsuccessful prosecution of Democratic lawyer Michael Sussmann--has by now yielded a scandalous portrait of an FBI willing to take nearly any step--and cut any corner--to harm Donald Trump...

It did so despite knowing that Mr. Steele was in the employ of opposition-research firm Fusion GPS, itself paid by the Clinton campaign--a fact so damning the FBI cloaked it in a convoluted footnote to its application. It proceeded despite suspecting (and later confirming) that Mr. Steele was blabbing to the press on behalf of the Clinton campaign--breaking FBI source rules. Early drafts of the Page application blamed a press leak on Mr. Steele, but the FBI ultimately stripped out that crucial info--even as it vouched that Mr. Steele was "reliable." The FBI also omitted exculpatory evidence, including that Mr. Page worked as a contact for another U.S. intelligence agency for years. The Justice Department inspector general ultimately documented 17 significant omissions and inaccuracies in the application, most of which happened to work in the FBI's favor.

The FBI didn't bother to interview Mr. Steele's primary source, Mr. Danchenko, until January 2017. Never mind that the bureau had itself opened a counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Danchenko in 2009 on concerns he was a national security threat (it was closed in 2011 when the FBI believed he'd left the country). Mr. Danchenko further undermined the dossier starting in January 2017. He said Mr. Steele had misstated or exaggerated many of his statements, that he had no proof of the claims, and that it was "hearsay," the kind of conversation he "had with friends over beers," according to the inspector general's report.

The FBI kept quiet that its source had debunked his own work product--and instead used dossier info to renew the Page surveillance warrant three more times. It rewarded Mr. Danchenko in March 2017 by putting him on the payroll as a confidential human source, where he stayed until October of 2020.

In more Defund the F***ing FBI news:

Christopher Wray is "embezzling" from the taxpayers with his profligate use of the FBI's jet for personal travel, say fellow agents.

Former and current FBI agents are fuming about Director Christopher Wray's use of the FBI's private jet, which originally was intended by Congress only to be used for counterterrorism purposes.

A lot of other Americans would like to know why Wray cut short a Senate oversight hearing on Aug. 4 to fly in the FBI jet to his family holiday destination in the Adirondacks, after telling Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that he had "business" to attend to.

Republican members of Congress sent a formal letter to Wray on Aug. 15 asking whether the flight was in "compliance with the applicable federal regulations and requirements" and whether he is "properly reimbursing federal taxpayers for your personal travel aboard government aircraft."

The FBI's Gulfstream G550 doesn't appear to have visited Saranac Lake again since The Post first reported on that trip, and two other flights on June 2 and June 5, 2022.

But the jet has been flying back and forth an awful lot to Atlanta, where Wray has a house in the exclusive Buckhead district.

Meanwhile, disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok claim that the FBI is too biased in favor of "MAGA" and that they must be more "professional" -- like the FBI was during Russiagate!

He claims there were no findings of FBI wrongdoing during Russiagate.

Strzok then claimed that 9/11 "was nothing compared to January 6."

Wallace and Strzok were melting down because of the revelation, noted here on Friday in documents highlighted by Julie Kelly, that FBI Political Kommissars are reporting agents for noting that the riots of 2020 lasted far longer, and did far more damage, than the three hour riot of January 6 -- and yet the government has spent very little resources to prosecute the offenders, and the worst offenders have mostly gotten slaps on the wrist.

Wallace then claims, with her typical disinterest in factual accuracy, that the "capital" attack was the "deadliest" in US history.

To which the deranged psychopath Peter Strzok -- whose very existence demands the defunding of the FBI; how did an actual psychopath pass their psychological examinations? -- insists the nation go on "war footing" to go to war with 74 million Trump voters.

Framing January 6 against 9/11, she seemed to suggest Mueller invented the phrase "connect the dots" and warped the events of January 6 and how deadly it was, as she decried: "I've not heard one utterance of connecting the dots from Christopher Wray in the days after the deadliest attack on the U.S. capital in history."


But Strzok wasn't interested in facts as he fully agreed with Wallace's nonsense. According to him, "when you look at something that is an attack on democracy, something that could actually bring about a fundamental change to American governments as we understand it, 9/11 is nothing compared to January 6."

That didn't get a blink from Wallace, who -- moments prior -- bragged about being in the Bush administration on 9/11. And there was still no pushback when Strzok demanded the federal government take a harsher stand against Americans. "And the fact that the FBI and the rest of the government if they are not only on the same sort of war footing that they were on in the weeks and months and years after 9/11, shame on everyone!" he sneered.

"This is a far greater threat to our constitutional democracy than anything we've faced in the past 20 or more years. We need to be addressing it the same way," he added.
