Igor Danchenko

Federal authorities arrested Russian analyst Igor Danchenko on Thursday. Danchenko was the “primary researcher behind the Steele Dossier, a collection of unsubstantiated opposition research linking the 2016 Trump campaign to the Kremlin” reports National Review.

Individuals with direct knowledge of the matter told the New York Times Danchenko’s indictment is the result of John Durham’s federal probe. Durham was tapped by the Trump administration to audit the Russia investigation.

The Steele dossier began the Russia collusion hoax that claimed Trump “accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his Democratic and other political rivals.” Just months following the 2016 presidential election, it was determined that Steele and Danchenko’s “research” was either unverified or erroneous.

The Steele dossier was paid for by the Clinton campaign through its law firm Perkins Coie. Steele was eventually accused of peddling the Russian interference hoax to subvert Trump’s presidential campaign.

Perkins Coie also employed Clinton’s campaign lawyer and former federal prosecutor Michael Sussmann. Sussmann was charged recently for making a false statement to the FBI about the Trump Organization’s use of a secret server to communicate with the Kremlin-connected Russian bank Alfa Bank.

Two more staffers are reportedly leaving their jobs in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to the Washington Post. The news comes just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced her departure.

“Symone Sanders, the senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, is expected to leave the White House at the end of the year, according to five administration officials familiar with the matter,” Politico reported.

In addition to Sanders, “Peter Velz, director of press operations, and Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the vice president’s office, have also told others in the vice president’s office that they are leaving, according to two administration officials,” the Washington Post reported.

Earlier this week, Sanders officially announced her departure in a note to the Vice President’s team.

“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for [Harris chief of staff] Tina [Flournoy] and her leadership and her confidence as well,” Sanders wrote. “Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”

The news comes just weeks after Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne filed her resignation.

“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official stated. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

“Harris’ office has been beset by disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions,” Politico reported, adding, “ … in recent weeks, chatter has grown increasingly loud that Harris wasn’t positioned well to be Biden’s heir apparent in 2028 or, if he opts not to run again, in 2024.”
