Democrats and left-wing bureaucrats within the federal government have been on a mission to stop Donald Trump since he entered politics.
Without even trying to hide it they’ve thrown everything they possibly can at him.
But Special Counsel John Durham just proved the Deep State’s Trump witch hunt was worse than anyone imagined.
While Democrats and the corporate-controlled media are fixated on January 6 in an effort to deflect from their own failures and corruption, Special Counsel John Durham is exposing them.
Durham went after Igor Danchenko – the Russian expat who served as the primary source for the debunked Christopher Steele dossier fabricated by the Clinton campaign to overthrow Trump – prosecuting him for lying to FBI agents trying to corroborate the dossier.
Of course, it didn’t matter what Danchenko corroborated or didn’t, in the trial that ended this week in an acquittal as it’s now known the FBI agents involved in this “Russian collusion” hoax were politically-motivated to use it against Trump.
Regardless, in Danchenko’s trial Durham delivered, getting a senior FBI analyst to reveal under oath that the FBI was so eager to “get” Trump, the agency actually offered Steele $1 million if he could corroborate his own fabricated dossier.
“Shortly before the 2016 election, the FBI offered retired British spy Christopher Steele ‘up to $1 million’ to prove the explosive allegations in his dossier about Donald Trump, a senior FBI analyst testified Tuesday,” CNN reported. “The cash offer was made during an overseas October 2016 meeting between Steele and several top FBI officials who were trying to corroborate Steele’s claims that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia to win the election.”
But to the surprise of no one who’s paid attention, Steele couldn’t back up his claims, and even refused to provide any names for his sources, seemingly proving they likely didn’t exist.
“FBI supervisory analyst Brian Auten testified that Steele never got the money because he could not “prove the allegations,’” the report continued. “Auten also said Steele refused to provide the names of any of his sources during that meeting, and that Steele didn’t give the FBI anything during that meeting that corroborated the claims in his explosive dossier. Auten was testifying at the criminal trial of Igor Danchenko, a primary source for Steele’s dossier, who is being prosecuted by special counsel John Durham.”
Needless to say, though, the idea that under former President Barack Obama’s watch, the FBI was offering $1 million for damaging information on Democrats’ top political rival should be headline news.
But it’s of course only being mentioned in passing, and completely buried in comparison to January 6.
Of course, the FBI’s bribery efforts weren’t even the worst revelation to come from the trial.
During the trial, CNN also reported that Durham highlighted the fact that the FBI continued to use the Steele Dossier to obtain search warrants targeting Donald Trump after they knew it was fabricated nonsense.
“Durham highlighted how the FBI kept using information from the Steele dossier to bolster its case for probable cause to secure the warrants – even after the FBI came up empty in its efforts to corroborate Steele’s claims,” CNN’s report read. “Those FISA warrants were roundly criticized in a 2019 report from the Justice Department inspector general, which exposed a series of errors, flaws and omissions. Two of the four court-approved warrants were later deemed invalid.”
On January 6, a couple dozen idiots stormed into the Capitol to make a ruckus, and Democrats have claimed that was an “insurrection” and “attempted coup” designed to “overthrow democracy” in an effort to silence conservatives and outright rid them from society.
Meanwhile, the FBI was conspiring to throw a duly-elected President in prison based on information they knew was false, and those involved received a slap on the wrist.
It’s truly never been more obvious that there is a two-tiered justice system in America – one for Democrats and another for Republicans.
And as Special Counsel John Durham proved, the Deep State’s Trump witch hunt was worse than anyone imagined.
