Though it has taken five years to finally start learning the truth about the phony Russian collusion hoax, all signs point back to the Hillary Clinton campaign looking to frame former President Donald Trump for something made up out of whole cloth, with a heavy assist from the deep state. An attempt that may very well be the greatest political scandal in modern U.S. history, but don’t expect the deceitful media to report on the story in that context.

On Thursday, Igor Danchenko was taken into custody by federal authorities in a continuation of Special Counsel John Durham’s ongoing investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation, charged in a criminal indictment with five counts of lying to the FBI.

A Russian analyst, Danchenko was “the fabulist behind the discredited anti-Trump dossier,” as characterized by Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, author of the New York Times bestseller “Witch Hunt: The Story of the Greatest Mass Delusion in American Political History.”

The key source for the 2016 dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele detailing allegations about Trump, Danchenko fed Steele “bogus information,” Jarrett wrote in an op-ed published on Thursday that suggests failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s fingerprints are all over this scandal.

“Danchenko was not some mysterious Russian agent operating in the bowels of the Kremlin,” Jarrett wrote. “He is a Ukrainian-born resident of the United States who worked as a senior research analyst for the Washington, D.C. liberal think tank, Brookings Institution. When the dossier was concocted in 2016, the president of Brookings was Strobe Talbott, a longtime friend and ally of Hillary Clinton. This was hardly a coincidence.”

“It was Clinton and her confederates who invented the Russia hoax to frame her opponent with the most noxious offense in America: a treasonous conspiracy with the Kremlin to steal a presidential election,” he continued. “The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) financed their illicit scheme by secretly funneling money to Steele, who hired Danchenko as his primary source for the dossier.”

Pointing to declassified documents, the former adjunct law professor charged that the CIA “knew as early as July of 2016 that Clinton had personally approved the devious operation,” and that the FBI caught up with Danchenko shortly thereafter and he “admitted his role and debunked the dossier as little more than a fairy tale.”

And this is where the deep state assist really kicks in, according to Jarrett.

“But John Brennan and James Comey, the respective directors of the CIA and FBI at the time, kept the truth hidden from Congress, President Trump, and the American people. Their insipid deception allowed the collusion lie to gain traction in the mainstream media,” he penned. “The FBI exploited the dossier as a pretext to investigate Trump. Their misbegotten probe should have been shut down in its infancy. Beginning a mere four days after Trump was inaugurated in January of 2017, FBI agents interviewed Danchenko during three successive sessions and on multiple occasions after that.”

Jarrett explained that Danchenko admitted to the bureau that Steele paid him to dig up dirt on Trump and he told agents he “felt like he had to report something back to Steele” to keep the monthly checks rolling.

“So, he decided to traffic in gossip to keep the paychecks coming. Facts and truth were irrelevant,” he wrote, adding that Danchenko told the FBI he had repeatedly cautioned Steele that the dubious stories about Trump-Russia collusion were just “rumor and speculation that he had not been able to confirm,” and confessed that Steele “misstated or exaggerated” the information he was given.

So the salacious story about Trump committing lewd acts with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel “turned out to be nothing more than the product of someone’s rich imagination,” Jarrett explained, not that Steele cared. “He included the sordid tale in his dossier and then peddled it to both the FBI and the media in order to destroy Trump, whom he admittedly loathed.”

The media also played a major role in the framing of a sitting U.S. president, according to the Fox News analyst, aiding and abetting the Clinton campaign and the deep state.

“The mainstream media, riven with bias and easily exploited, helped fuel the collusion fable. Reporters were more than happy to appropriate the Steele-Danchenko garbage, treating it as gospel without ever attempting to confirm the accuracy or veracity of any of its ludicrous allegations. Journalists became witting accessories to the witch hunt,” he insisted.

An allegation that explains their lukewarm reception to the latest developments.

Jarrett also offered this damning indictment of the Comey-led Federal Bureau of Investigations:

On its face, the dossier was a preposterous collection of rumors, innuendos, supposition, and wild conjecture. It was based solely on multiple hearsay accounts from inherently unreliable sources who appeared to be experts in lies and disinformation.

Comey and his FBI knew all of this but continued to misappropriate the dossier as the basis for the four successive warrants to spy on Trump campaign associate, Carter Page.  The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) was consistently told that Steele was a credible source even though the agency had fired him for lying.

The FBI defrauded the FISC judges by insisting that the dossier was credible, even though they possessed incontrovertible evidence to the contrary.  The bureau scrupulously guarded their secret knowing full well that disclosure would ruin the public’s trust in the FBI.  And so it has.

 

In conclusion, Jarrett said Durham “should be commended for having the courage and persistence to uncover the incessant lies and bring criminal charges against those whose malevolence drove the dirtiest political trick ever perpetrated in American politics.” Saying Danchenko may be the key that unlocks “even more acts of corruption,” he also hoped more indictments are on their way.
