- Christopher Steele was offered ‘anywhere up to a million dollars’ by the FBI for hard evidence supporting his dossier, according to testimony.
- FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten doesn’t recall whether the FBI had been able to corroborate *any* information in the dossier, and yet it was ‘contained in subsequent applications submitted to a federal judge,’ meaning they lied to the FISA courts to get surveillance warrants.
- Technofog: “Auten’s testimony was an admission of how little they did, ignoring both travel records and phone records.”
- Clintonite Democrat activist Charles Dolan testified, admitting that his contribution to the Trump-Russia fable was a lie. He had responded to Danchenko’s request for dirt on Trump campaign in an email: “Let me dig around on Manafort. Pretty sure the new team wanted him gone ASAP and used today’s New York Times story to drive a stake in his heart.”
- Danchenko was paid around $200,000 by the FBI, with an additional $300,000+ requested but not authorized
- Kash Patel: “…[if] you can pay a guy hundreds of thousands of dollars in government taxpayer money to participate in the biggest criminal conspiracy in America and he can be tried for lying to the very employer that he gave information to and then walk out of a federal courthouse a free man, it’s quite the justice charade — but it happens when you enact the two-tiered system of justice that Chris Wray and Merrick Garland are quarterbacking.”
- Danchenko acquitted on all counts. One count was dropped. See below. Here’s what TechnoFog had to say in conclusion.
Count 2. March 16, 2017: Danchenko told FBI agents he received a call in late July 2016 from a person he thought was Sergei Millian, when Danchenko knew he had never received a call from Millian.
Count 3. May 18, 2017: Danchenko gave a false statement to FBI agents that he “was under the impression” that the late July 2016 call was from Millian.
Count 4. October 24, 2017: Danchenko falsely stated to FBI agents that he believed he spoke to Millian on the phone on more than one occasion.
Count 5. November 16, 2017: Danchenko lied that he “believed he has spoken to [Millian] on the telephone,” when Danchenko well knew he had never spoken to Millian.
