The FBI paid a fake Russian bill to punish a patriot

To understand the state of disrepair in our national security and law enforcement apparatus, watch the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s comparative treatment of Russian disinformation caster Igor Danchenko and special agent Steven Friend.
We recently learned that the Bureau rewards the former for his lies and punishes the latter for his truth.
Danchenko, a Russian citizen, was the key researcher behind the key document – the Steele dossier – behind the key effort to undermine, and then overthrow, President Donald J. Trump: Russiagate.
Today we know that Danchenko falsified communications with a central source who was allegedly behind some of the most valuable claims in the document. By lying to the FBI about this, and many other things that would call into question his credibility, as well as the veracity of the record, Danchenko was instrumental in corrupting the political and legal systems. He has helped subvert the presidency and the will of the people, impose fraud on the FISA court and circumvent civil liberties, destroy the reputations and drain the bank accounts of those wrongfully frozen in the Russiagate scandal, as well as our Deep State. long rotten. .
To add to the furore, after the FBI discovered that Danchenko had been misled, it claimed in several FISA applications that it was used to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the Trump world that Danchenko, “the source of fundamental” to Steele’s “truth. and cooperation.”
Even worse, according to a recent indictment by Special Counsel John Durham on five counts of perjury against Danchenko, which is scheduled to go to trial in October, we now know that a long time ago before helping to develop the case, the FBI opened an investigation against the intelligence analyst.
While at the Brookings Institution, in late 2008, prosecutors said, Danchenko “hired two friends to find out if either of them… The employee believed that Danchenko believed that the employee “might be able to get into the next Obama administration and Danchenko allegedly told his colleague that he had “found access to people who are willing to pay … to get classified information”.
Intelligence officials investigated Danchenko from 2009 to 2011, describing him “as having ties to two anti-FBI subjects” and that he had “previous contacts with the Russian embassy and Russian intelligence agents.” famous”. Danchenko, according to the filing, “also informed a Russian intelligence official that he was interested in entering the Russian diplomatic service.”
The FBI closed its investigation after that in a wrong way concluding that Danchenko had left the country.
So, in addition to the FBI carelessly omitting the Russiagate connection to the work of a Russian fake artist whose work it discovered early on that was funded by the Clinton campaign, the FBI made this connection despite its already investigated, by implication, as a possible Russian agent, and that he lost track of his incompetence.
But the biggest bombshell of Durham’s recent record is this: Danchenko was rewarded for his efforts. From March 2017 to October 2020, the FBI placed him on the payroll as an informant.
What is the reason? Consider the time. In March, then-FBI director Jim Comey told Congress that the Trump campaign was being investigated for ties to Russia and beyond. Devin Nunes learned that Trump’s transition team was spied on.
As Russiagate analyst Hans Mahncke wrote:
The FBI was able to use his status to hide Danchenko and his disclosures from congressional investigations, such as the investigation by then-Rep. Devin Nunes is directed by Kash Patel. Further investigations… can also be blocked by citing “sources and methods” of evidence to conceal the identity, or even existence, of CHS. [confidential human source].
So, by keeping Danchenko at CHS, the FBI kept the discredited researcher behind the dirty dossier behind Russiagate out of the investigation, thereby protecting itself and its Russiagate associates for years. were going to take advantage of the “Trump-Russia scam” in the review.
The FBI bought Danchenko’s silence and paid them to defend themselves – our money.
Now consider the case of FBI Special Agent Steve Friend. Recently, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) and their colleague in the House Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed the complaints from the secretaries that suggest military and national security policies and equipment. Law enforcement against wrongdoers was the focus of this column.
A friend, a 12-year FBI agent, is one of the whistleblowers. In fact, Miranda Devine reported:
He was declared absent without leave last month when he refused to participate in SWAT raids that he said violated FBI policy involving the excessive use of force against Jan. 6 subjects charged with crimes.
… A friend, who did not vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 election, said he told his boss twice that he believed the raid and the investigative process that led to it.. politics and rights subject to the Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial. and the Eighth Amendment right against cruel and unusual punishment.
The colleague faced retaliation for speaking out internally, with his boss immediately “dangerously asking how long I see myself continuing to work for the FBI.”
After that, he was suspended from work, his gun and badge were taken from him, and he was escorted from his office. He responded with a confidential complaint to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz — who, incidentally, uncovered corruption in FISA applications, as well as other aspects of Russiagate — detailing numerous allegations.
The friend claims that, among other things, the FBI office in Washington is dealing with the cases of Jan. 6 to foster the idea of the threat of domestic violent extremism on the right wing, in a strong effort to aggressively rule all business related to the Capitol. breach; Friend was removed from active sex abuse and child trafficking investigations in favor of the case on January 6; and impeaching innocent Americans on domestic terrorism charges using FBI wiretapping and monitoring of Facebook posts.
The friend’s purge follows Attorney General Merrick Garland’s issuance of a memo barring DOJ officials from contacting members of Congress.
Danchenko will have his day in court six years after Russiagate began because the Trump administration created special counsel Durham. But as in the case of Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, he is a non-government player in the Russiagate case, facing a DC-area grand jury, on the brink of acquittal on similar grounds. As the Durham team appears again exposing the Deep States as dupesinstead of being a sophist, Danchenko could argue the opposite – and that therefore his lies don’t matter because the smart FBI prosecuted Russiagate regardless of his lies.
It is not clear that the friend will receive any reward after his bold criticism of what appears from the outside, which is that our regime is engaged in counterproductive activities. The fight against negative thinkingusing the security state to persecute the enemy, he himself is apparently involved.
The regime protects its people and punishes those who oppose it.
The cases of Danchenko and Friend are connected.
The fact that Durham is apparently ending its investigation shows that the worst actors in Russiagate – those who abused their positions of authority – will never be punished.
This lack of accountability has paved the way for other foolish schemes: Trump Impeachments I and II, the January 6 Commission and DOJ indictments, the punishment of non-violent defendants in jail for months, the Mar-a-Lago invasion, the orderly carpet bombing. court, and others.
