  • Special Counsel John Durham whiffed again, as a D.C. jury found Oct. 18 that Russian national Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source of the discredited Steele dossier, was not guilty on all four counts of making false statements to the FBI.
  • This is the second trial in Durham’s long investigation, and the second time a jury delivered an acquittal.
  • “We’ve known all along that Mr. Danchenko was innocent,” Danchenko’s attorney Stuart Sears said Tuesday. “We’re happy now that the American public knows that as well.”
