A source for the infamous “Steel dossier,” used against former President Trump, was arrested and charged Thursday with lying to the FBI.
Igor Danchenko, a U.S.-based Russian analyst, was charged with five counts of false statements to the FBI in 2017 when he was questioned about his role with Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy paid by Democrats, according to the Associated Press.

The case in front of a federal grand jury in Virginia is part of special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s probe into Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign ties to Russia.
“The indictment says Danchenko misled the FBI by denying a relationship with a public relations executive and longtime Democratic operative and supporter of Trump’s 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton, when he had in fact anonymously sourced one of his allegations to that person,” the AP reports.
