Surprise: Steele Dossier’s Primary Source Lived in US, Not Russia
Will wonders never cease! The New York Times, after spending nearly four years’ worth of energy hyperventilating about the 2016 Trump campaign colluding with Russia, is starting to feel some doubts about British spy Christopher Steele’s potty dossier.
Be careful, New York Times! If you lift that rock up much further, you might come to the conclusion that Russian collusion was a hoax!
For once, the Times has uncovered some actual real “news” about the situation and decided to publish it for some reason. They found Christopher Steele’s “primary source” for the dossier.
We know that the Russian potty dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. We know that the work on the dossier was paid for using Perkins-Coie law firm as the “cut-out,” to avoid listing it as a paid campaign expense and to make it look like a legitimate intelligence document. We know that Fusion GPS is the Democrat dirt-digging outfit that took the job and that they hired a former British spy – Christopher Steele – to put the potty dossier together.
But who was Christopher Steele’s source?
According to a lot of news organizations – including the New York Times, CNN, Politico and any other news outlet you can think of – Steele’s “sources” were highly-placed Russian intelligence operatives. They were super-spies who were “close to Putin’s inner circle” who knew that Putin had the goods on Trump and his team of campaign colluders like Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos and Carter Page. Right?
Actually, according to the “new” information that the Times just published, Christopher Steele’s primary source for information in the Russian potty dossier was a man named Igor Danchenko.
A-ha! Sounds totally Russian!
Except… Igor Danchenko is a Ukrainian-born attorney. He worked as the main researcher at the left-wing Brookings Institute in Washington, DC for several years. And although he is considered an “expert” on business in Russia, it doesn’t look like Danchenko has ever actually been there. Danchenko got his degree on Russia from the University of Louisville – you know, the one in Kentucky.
The New York Times hilariously notes, “Mr. Danchenko’s identity is noteworthy because it further calls into question the credibility of the dossier.”
This is a delicate way of telling the New York Times’ regular readers that the Russian potty dossier – which was used as the only source of “proof” to obtain four FISA warrants against the Trump campaign – was in fact a steaming pile of horse manure.
Attorney General Bill Barr has declassified documents that show that even Danchenko’s research was not as inflammatory as what Christopher Steele put in the dossier. In other words, Steele took Danchenko’s “research” and then gussied it up to make it even more salacious in the final dossier.
Once again, we find Ukrainian nationalists meddling in the 2016 election to help Hillary Clinton, rather than any actual Russians who were trying to help Donald Trump. Do you see the pattern yet?
Ukrainian-born Alexandra Chalupa was the co-chair of the DNC’s Ethnic Council. Ukrainian-born LIEUTENANT COLONEL Vindman and his Ukrainian-born brother were both on the bloated National Security Council and got President Trump impeached over a phone call with the Ukrainian president who replaced the corrupt Ukrainian president that was doing business with the Biden family. The “Whistleblower Who Must Never Be Named” was Ukrainian born.
And Christopher Steele’s primary source for the Russian potty dossier was a Kentucky-trained, Ukrainian born leftist.
For those who don’t know Russian history, Ukrainians have a deep-seated, burning hatred of Russia. They have good reasons for this (Stalin’s Ukrainian famine, Obama’s coup of their government in 2013, etc.). But you have to understand the Ukrainian hatred of Russia to understand the Ukrainian nationalist hatred of Trump in this country.
Trump campaigned on a promise to try to reset relations with Russia. As a negotiator, Trump mused on the campaign trail about talking to nations that we have bad relationships with to try to see if we have common ground that could benefit both America and those other nations. Russia was one of those nations. But better relations with Russia are perceived as bad for Ukrainians, because how could America possibly have good relations with two countries as once?
Trump’s promises enraged Ukrainian nationalists, who seem to be more prevalent in the US government than American nationalists for some reason. Maybe someone should look into that! But the fact remains that the Ukrainian nationalists wanted Hillary to win in 2016, because she was going to keep the gravy train going for them. And with Joe Biden as the nominee in 2020, who do you suppose all of the Ukrainian nationalists in our federal government are rooting for this time?
