Special Counsel John Durham Files Motion

United States Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

On Wednesday, Special counsel John Durham filed a motion to block Igor Danchenko from using classified intelligence as part of his defense in his upcoming trial. Danchenko was a key source in the anti-Trump Steele Dossier.

The Washington Times reports:

A brief, one-page order accompanying the motion says the government objects to the “use, relevance and admissibility” of the classified information.

Earlier this month, Mr. Danchenko filed his own motion signaling that he intends to use classified information in his defense. That motion was also filed under seal and did not offer any more details on how the materials could help defense attorneys make their case.

The government has already provided Mr. Danchenko’s attorneys with 5,000 classified documents and 61,000 unclassified documents, according to a court filing in May.

Mr. Danchenko last fall was charged with repeatedly lying to the FBI about how he compiled information for British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s salacious and unverified dossier that was filled with now-debunked accusations tying former President Donald Trump to Russia.

Mr. Durham was selected by Trump’s Attorney General William P. Barr in 2019 to investigate allegations of misconduct by the FBI and other U.S, intelligence agencies probing allegations of collusion between then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government.

Wait for the special counsel for the Biden’s! I wonder what it would take to get the president of the Ukraine to give up how much the Biden’s , Pelosi’s and Romney’s laundered there! They already have the phone call from Biden telling him not to tell Trump what they were doing.

When is the “Special Investigator” coming up with some concrete evidence whereby we can see some convictions other than “Lying to Congress” which is what the Democrats do daily?

It should be a crime for an elected official to lie to the American people.

Really? Where did you hear that? The lame stream media is totally silent about what Durham says and does.

If he brings the case in DC he will lose. DC has collectively the lowest IQ in the country, and they are extremely corrupt.

Unless Durham gets a change of venue then it’s just a waste of time.

Evolution occurs at a faster pace than Durham’s investigation. At this rate it will be 2028 before anything comes of it.

What he should be doing is investigating pedophilic former presidents or other gubment officials. But from the looks of things and the long timeframe here, that probably won’t happen. SWAMP SCUM all.

Glad to see he still is on the job. If it was not the law, the socialist Dems would have pulled him off the case and buried the investigation.

Why bring any charges with the Commies in White House and 50-50 Congress & Senate? We want a fair and honest trial and brand NEW HEMP ROPES for all the FBI, CIA, DOJ Agents who enabled them . . .

I no longer expect anything to come from Durham. It’s taking to long. And if he won’t get a change of venue out of D.C. it’s just a waste of time. Because he won’t get a conviction there. It’s way to partisan for Democrats and they won’t convict any of there own regardless of the crime.

Let me get this straight, the Government gave this Russian defendant classified material, yet raids a former Presidents house for so called classified materials. There is something very wrong here.

What I want to know is why the hell are we (we being the United States) giving CLASSIFIED documents as part of the discovery process to a frigging Russian?
