BREAKING: Special Counsel John Durham Loses Another Steele Dossier Case


( – Special Counsel John Durham, handpicked to investigate and prosecute those believed to have provided false information as part of the Trump/Russia probe, has lost another case.

The jury in the prosecution of Igor Danchenko, an analyst who was a primary source for a dossier of allegations about former president Trump and Russia, acquitted Danchenko on false-statement charges in a case that Durham personally prosecuted.

As Fox News notes in “Danchenko trial: Jury finds Steele dossier source not guilty on all counts“:

“A jury on Tuesday found Russian national Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source of the anti-Trump dossier, not guilty on all four counts of making false statements to the FBI.

“The charges had been brought by Special Counsel John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the FBI’s original Trump-Russia investigation.

“The Danchenko trial is the second out of Durham’s years-long investigation, and the second time a jury delivered an acquittal.” [emphasis added]

By one estimate, Durham has spent more than $10 million on his investigation, resulting in two acquittals and a single guilty plea from a mid-level FBI lawyer.

As one longtime DC criminal defense investigator noted about Durham, “He may be the most inept prosecutor in modern history.”
