Igor Danchenko, Trump dossier source, charged with lying to FBI

Source: USA Today

“The key source of information used to compile a salacious 2016 dossier on former President Donald Trump has been arrested and charged with lying to the FBI as part of special counsel John Durham’s long-running inquiry into the Russia investigation. Igor Danchenko, 43, an associate of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, was taken into custody in northern Virginia and is expected to make his first court appearance Thursday afternoon, a Durham spokesman said Thursday. An indictment charges the former Russian citizen with five counts of making false statements to investigators regarding sources of information he provided to Steele. That information was later included in the dossier that was turned over to the FBI.” (11/04/21)
