Russia-Obsessed News Networks Silent After Igor Danchenko Appears in Court

Igor Danchenko

As the Russian collusion hoax continues to collapse with the Durham probe, news networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it. 

According to NewsBusters, “On Thursday, Special Prosecutor John Durham brought Russian national Igor Danchenko — who was the primary source in the infamous and debunked dossier — into court on charges of lying to the FBI with his information.” 

Reports are nonexistent of Danchenko’s indictment on the networks that devoted themselves to covering Russian collusion during the early years of Trump’s presidency. NewsBusters reports, “The ABC, CBS, NBC evening news programs (January 20, 2017 – July 20, 2019) alone devoted an astonishing 2,634 minutes to it.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald appeared on FNC’s MediaBuzz with host Howard Kurtz to detail how the news of Danchenko’s indictment demolishes any trace of trustworthiness of the media. 

“News networks that were once preoccupied with coverage of Russia are now running from it…”

“The overall narrative of the Trump presidency that came from the liberal sector of the media is proving to be a fraud and not an innocent one but a deliberate and coordinated one that came from a union between Clinton operatives, the security state services, the FBI and the CIA, and the corporate media. Those are the guilty parties that drowned our politics in this fraud for three or four years,” Greenwald said. 

Greenwald explains that the media is trying to pass this embarrassing mark on their record by using a strategy that pretends “the Steele dossier [was] covered only by cable crazies like Rachel Maddow and people like that, they’re kind of trying to scapegoat her and pretend that the real serious journalistic institutions like The New York Times and the Post that gave Pulitzers or were given Pulitzers for this story were actually serious journalists who didn’t fall for any of this.” 

Greenwald adds that there was “one little sentence buried in the Washington Post article, ‘Oh this calls into question some of our past reporting.’ I guess it’s better than nothing but it’s kind of shocking that that’s all they are going to do in passing — is just to say ‘Yeah, I guess it maybe actually shows that much of what we said was wrong.’” 

The false narrative of the Steele dossier was peddled incessantly by the media who had their goal set on destroying President Trump and his administration.

Report: North Korean ballistic missile fired by Russia into Ukraine contained components sourced from U.S.

A new report from Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a U.K.-based investigative organization, determined that a North Korean ballistic missile which was fired by Russia into Ukraine contained “numerous” electronic components sourced from the U.S. and Europe.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported on the findings, noting approximately 75% of the 290 components analyzed in the missile originated from U.S.-based companies, and an additional 16% of components came from European firms, according to the CAR report.

The electronic components came from 26 countries in total and were largely utilized in the missile’s navigation system, according to the report. It isn’t clear how the components ended up in North Korea’s possession, as the country is strictly sanctioned by a bulk of the international community, but it’s possible other foreign companies, acting as middlemen, bought the components and then diverted them to the communist country.

However, the fact that North Korea was able to acquire so many American electronic component parts suggests “that the country has developed a robust acquisition network capable of circumventing, without detection, sanction regimes that have been in place for nearly two decades,” according to the report.

CAR documents “weapons at the point of use and track their sources back through the chains of supply.”North Korea gathered the components, assembled the missile and shipped it to Russia, all within a relatively short time period, according to the report. The missile was recovered by CAR on Jan. 2, and the investigators determined it could not have been manufactured before March 2023.

The U.S. government and intelligence agencies are working to stop sensitive American intellectual property from ending up in the hands of several foreign adversaries. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin have strengthened their relationship since Russia first invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

“Due in part to our export and sanction controls, Russia has become increasingly isolated on the world stage, and they’ve been forced to look to like-minded states for military equipment,” White House National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing in January. “One of those states is North Korea.”
