Less than two months after indicting Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, special counsel John Durham on November 4th arrested Igor Danchenko, a key informant who provided “intelligence” for the Steele dossier.
He was arrested for lying to the FBI. The Steele dossier was the file used to smear Donald Trump, when he was running for president, during the 2016 election. The indictment shows that one of the Steele dossier’s key figures was longtime Clinton confidant Charles Dolan Jr.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said on Sunday, November 7th, that more people are expected to be indicted.
The whole affair is complex, spanning five years and involving many senior Democratic figures. So, let’s go back a little and look into the background of this story to make sense of it.
