Kash Patel: "These Merchants of Menace Are Finally Coming to Light - All Roads Lead to Andrew McCabe"

Earlier this week Kash Patel accused former Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the FBI and DOJ of withholding information from House GOP investigators in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. it is now clear that Rosenstein and former FBI brass lied and failed to mention that former DNC operative Charles Dolan helped fund the garbage dossier. Dolan campaigned for Hillary Clinton in 2016. The FBI, DOJ and Rosenstein forgot to mention this as they ran their attempted coup against President Donald Trump.

On Sunday Kash Patel told Maria Bartiromo that “all roads lead back to Andrew McCabe.” McCabe was fired by President Trump after lying about the Russia collusion narrative for years along with the top officials in DOJ and FBI. Patel says Fiona Hill is in danger of being indicted after lying under oath during the sham impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

Kash Patel: Really quick on Fiona Hill, I think John Durham is on the case here. I think she lied to Congress there under oath. She connected the main Clinton operative, (Charles Dolan) who Devin and I had never heard of because DOJ and FBI withheld those documents from us, intentionally I believe so… We now know that his (Danchenko’s) credibility has been destroyed and these merchants of menace are finally coming to light thanks to John Durham’s great work… I think all roads lead to Andy McCabe the former Deputy Director of the FBI who was caught lying three times by the inspector general during his tenure there.

         We have been following the Brookings Institute along with the Phony Dossier for a long time. We will repost some of it next.

Why Special Counsel John Durham Subpoenaed The Brookings Institution

 

Brookings was ground zero for the Russia collusion hoax, with many key staff embroiled in the damaging lie that Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 election.
 

In April 2021, the Brookings Institution publicly confirmed that Special Counsel John Durham had subpoenaed records from the D.C.-based left-wing think tank in December 2020. The friendly reporters at Time magazine framed the subpoena as limited to the decades-old employment record of former Brookings staffer Igor Danchenko.

Last week’s indictment of Danchenko, however, provides a perfect reminder that Brookings was ground zero for the Russia collusion hoax, with many key staff embroiled in the damaging lie that Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 election. ~~~~~~~~~~

Talk About Incestuous DC Relationships - According to the indictment, in February 2016 a Brookings Institution employee, Fiona Hill, introduced Danchenko to Dolan. Danchenko knew Hill, as he had also worked for the think tank as a Russia analyst from about 2005 to 2010. During that time, as the inspector general’s report on FISA abuse would later reveal, Danchenko was under investigation for being a potential Russian agent.

Significantly, Hill also introduced Danchenko to Steele, a longtime friend of hers, in about 2010. Following Hill’s introduction of Danchenko and Steele, Steele’s firm Orbis hired Danchenko as a contractor for various work, ultimately resulting in Danchenko serving as the “Primary Subsource” for the Steele dossier.

Hill also communicated with Steele about his work on the dossier, meeting with him in October 2016 while she still worked for the Brookings Institution.

Revelation of Steele’s primary source triggers focus on think tank tied to Clinton, Biden

The Obama team's ties to the Brookings Institution are deep, and so are those of impeachment witness Fiona Hill.

The revelation that Christopher Steele’s primary sub-source for his dossier was an American resident tied to a liberal think tank close to the Obama administration has triggered new investigative interest.

The identification of Igor Danchenko as Steele’s subsource — reported by Real Clear Investigations and then confirmed by Danchenko's lawyer to the New York Times — means Steele’s dossier relied on someone who wasn't based in Russia despite claims to the contrary by the FBI.

In at least two of the applications for its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant targeting Trump adviser Carter Page, the FBI referred to the primary sub-source of the document as "truthful and cooperative" and "Russian-based," according to Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz's report last December.

Danchenko also worked for several years until 2010 at the Brookings Institute, a think tank familiar to many in the Obama administration and to one key witness in the impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Fiona Hill, a Russia expert at the National Security Council and an impeachment witness against Trump, worked at the Brookings Institution in 2016 and co-authored a paper with Danchenko prior to the dossier being assembled, according to Real Clear Politics.

In addition, the president of the Brookings Institution — former Clinton administration figure Strobe Talbott — contacted Steele early in the Russia collusion probe and requested a copy of his dossier to share with Obama administration officials, according to Steele's recent testimony in a British lawsuit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The sudden web of connections between Danchenko, Hill, Talbott and others inside Brookings has spurred Republicans to start investigating the think tank, a 501c 3 tax-exempt organization.

"It looks like there were a lot of connections to the Brookings Institute," said former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, one of the first members of Congress to help unravel the failings and abuses in the now-discredited Russia collusion investigation.

Nunes told Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo that he is opening a "full-blown" probe into the role Brookings and its figures played with Steele and the entire Russia episode.

"People may remember the president of Brookings back in 2016, we know that he had given the dossier to a few people, we had that through testimony," Nunes explained. "You also may remember that the State Department was involved and there were additional dossiers that weren't the Steele dossiers, except that they mirrored the Steele dossiers."

"And we think there is a connection between the president of Brookings and those dossiers that were given to the State Department that mirrored the Steele dossiers," he continued.

The links between Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton and Brookings run deep.

        "Prosecutors said they want to know what the Clinton campaign knew about the accuracy of the Steele dossier's now-discredited allegations of Trump-Russia collusion and whether any campaign "representatives directed, solicited, or controlled" Danchenko's activities assisting Steele.."

https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/durham-zeroes-clinton-campaign-could-call-some-aides

Durham zeroes in on Clinton campaign, could call some aides to testify, court memo reveals

New court filing in Steele dossier source Igor Danchenko's criminal case shows prosecutors want to know if Clinton campaign knew false intel was going to FBI. Expert calls it an "incredible twist."

Hillary Clinton's team long fought to keep its ties to Christopher Steele's dossier from public view, but Special Counsel John Durham is now making clear he has a strong interest in her campaign's behavior during the Russia collusion probe. He is even suggesting some of her aides could be summoned as trial witnesses. Durham's earth-shaking revelation came inside a routine court filing this month in the case of Igor Y. Danchenko, a Russian analyst who was a primary source in 2016 for Steele's now-infamous dossier. Danchenko has been charged with repeatedly lying to the FBI during the Russia collusion probe and has pleaded innocent.

Durham's motion asked the presiding judge to determine whether Danchenko's lawyers —Danny Onorato and Stuart Sears of the Schertler Onorato Mead & Sears law firm — pose a conflict of interest because the firm also represents the Hillary for America campaign as well as several former campaign officials in "matters before the special counsel."

"The Clinton Campaign financed the opposition research reports, colloquially known as the 'Dossier,' that are central to the Indictment against the defendant," the Durham team stated in the motion. "Accordingly, for the reasons set forth below, the government respectfully requests that the Court inquire into the potential conflict issues set forth herein."

Prosecutors said they want to know what the Clinton campaign knew about the accuracy of the Steele dossier's now-discredited allegations of Trump-Russia collusion and whether any campaign "representatives directed, solicited, or controlled" Danchenko's activities assisting Steele.

"The interests of the Clinton Campaign and the defendant could potentially diverge in connection with any plea discussions, pre-trial proceedings, hearings, trial, and sentencing proceedings," the prosecutors told the court, often referring to the Steele dossier as "Company Reports." ~~~~~~~~~~~

For the first time, Durham also raised the possibility aides to Hillary Clinton could testify at Danchenko's trial. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Patel, a former federal prosecutor and adviser to Trump, told the John Solomon Reports podcast that the memo is "an unbelievable twist" in the Russia case. He said the fact that the law firm representing the Clinton campaign is the same one representing Danchenko was certain to raise questions.

"You have to ask yourself why," he said. "Why would the Clinton campaign lawyers go and represent the Steele dossier's No. 1 source, who has been charged federally with five counts of lying to the FBI in a 39-page indictment that cites Clinton campaign former staffers? "There is no such thing as coincidences in these types of investigations."

        "Why would the legal firm representing Hillary Clinton (to the Durham probe) step-in to represent Igor Danchenko in his criminal indictment?"

         Step by step, and it is probably too late to stop Durham now, assuming that without massive voter fraud they are soon to lose control of Congress.

Igor Danchenko Now Represented by Hillary Clinton Lawyers

In a court filing by Special Counsel John Durham it’s noted that previously indicted Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source for Christopher Steele’s fraudulent dossier against Donald Trump, is now represented by the same lawyers representing Hillary Clinton’s legal interests.  John Durham is asking the court to evaluate the legal conflicts:

Why would the legal firm representing Hillary Clinton (to the Durham probe) step-in to represent Igor Danchenko in his criminal indictment?

The only logical reason would be for Danchenko to represent a legal risk to the interests of Hillary Clinton, likely through the direct association between Hillary Clinton and Charles Dolan, Danchenko’s collaborator and the liaison to Chris Steele from the Clinton campaign.

As a result of the Durham indictment, we know Igor Danchenko was working closely with Democrat Party public relations executive Charles Dolan to funnel the fabricated source material to Chris Steele.  The Clinton team’s communication and contact with Charles Dolan would represent a legal risk to Hillary Clinton.

If Charles Dolan and Hillary Clinton were in communication, it seems like that would be the motive for Clinton’s lawyers to want to control Danchenko’s legal status and any statements to John Durham or the court.  More than likely, the people in/around Hillary Clinton are the ones paying the law firm to represent Igor Danchenko.

       "This investigation is complicated and many people have forgotten it’s still ongoing. But with Clinton now potentially tied to it, things could become much tenser."

Authorities Admit Currently Investigating Hillary Clinton's 2016 Campaign: Durham

The Washington Examiner reported that “Durham told a federal court that he is scrutinizing members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign as part of his criminal inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Trump-Russia investigation.”

Durham’s team asked the judge of the federal court to “inquire into a potential conflict of interest” concerning the lawyers for British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s main source for the anti-Trump dossier, according to the Examiner.

They noted that a separate lawyer at their firm “is currently representing the 2016 ‘Hillary for America’ presidential campaign, as well as multiple former employees of that campaign, in matters before the Special Counsel.”

Before the end of the Trump administration, then-Attorney General Bill Barr elevated Durham to special counsel status in October 2020, as Politico reported. This appointment as special counsel meant that he could continue investigations even under the new administration. ~~~~~~~~~~

So what does Hilary Clinton have to do with all this? Two lawyers, Stuart Sears and Danny Onorato, took over as Danchenko’s defense lawyers. At their firm is also Robert Trout, who represented Clinton campaign members in the past. Onorato and Sears argued that there is no conflict of interest.

But Durham’s team argued that the interests of Danchenko and the Clinton campaign “could potentially diverge in connection with any plea discussions, pretrial proceedings, hearings, trial, and sentencing proceedings.”

Durham listed several issues that could become relevant to Danchenko’s defense. He then explained how the Clinton campaign and Danchenko could have ties in all this and try to shift the blame on each other concerning the dossier. ~~~~~~~~~~~

“On each of these issues, the interests of the Clinton Campaign and the defendant might diverge … For example, the Clinton Campaign and the defendant each might have an incentive to shift blame and/or responsibility to the other party for any allegedly false information that was contained within the Company Reports and/or provided to the FBI,” Durham said, according to the Washington Examiner.

This investigation is complicated and many people have forgotten it’s still ongoing. But with Clinton now potentially tied to it, things could become much tenser.

Durham’s Investigation: Incriminating Inference in the FBI’s Empty Russiagate Predication

~~~~~~~~ According to the FBI, the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation was opened on July 31, 2016, because lowly Trump aide George Papadopoulos had been told by one Professor Joseph Mifsud that Russia had emails harmful to Hillary Clinton. ~~~~~~~~~ Quickly thereafter, the FBI opened highly secretive "SIM" (Sensitive Investigation Matter) investigations on Trump advisors Paul Manafort, Carter Page, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos without any actual evidence, on the speculation that they were the most likely conspirators. ~~~~~~~~

Perhaps even more chilling, the FBI knew that Simpson, Steele, and sub-sources were a rogues’ gallery of Russian spies, agents, and oligarchic retainers. Simpson was working at the time for the Russian oligarchic Katsyv family and Prevezon Holdings in a huge Magnitsky Act case, along with Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, she of the June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting imbroglio. 

Steele was the main intelligence advisor, since 2010, for one of Putin’s closest allies, oligarch Oleg Deripaska. Primary sub-source Igor Danchenko had been investigated as a Russian spy and had worked for Steele and Deripaska for years. Danchenko’s covert source, Clinton-connected politico Charles Dolan, was a registered foreign agent for Russia, “was very trusted by Putin’s people” and “well-connected in Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.” Steele has also claimed to have relied on former Russian spy head Vyacheslav Trubnikov and “Putin’s Rasputin” Vladislav Surkov. 

If Putin was truly plotting with Trump, would his close allies so openly betray him, or were they instead mollifying (and getting kompromat on) the presumed next U.S. president?

It is no wonder that Comey has testified that Brennan’s September 7, 2016 referral didn’t “sound familiar” and “doesn’t ring a bell.” ~~~~~~~~~~

But common sense tells us that Comey’s cohorts were not memory-challenged Inspector Clouseaus, but, rather, were more like diabolical Lex Luthors, ruthlessly plotting to take down a despised newcomer politician for partisan ends.
