In a document called the Steele dossier, Igor Danchenko gathered clues about possible links between former President Donald Trump and Russia, and the New York tycoon’s efforts to take the victory away from Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton.

The arrest is part of the special investigation led by attorney John H. Durham, appointed during the New York tycoon’s era (2017-January 2021) to scrutinize the investigation, actually written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

It is a 35-page compendium of rumors and unproven claims suggesting that Russia interfered in the 2016 election with Trump’s complicity to topple Clinton.

According to anonymous sources familiar with the incident, Danchenko was arrested for lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents during interviews conducted from January to November 2017.

The indictment refers that Danchenko falsely told investigators that he never contacted a US-settled person to develop the allegations included in the dossier, when in fact he did. Federal agents claim that the analyst had ties to the Democratic Party and that the Democratic Party indirectly funded the investigation of the former British agent, Danchenko’s employer.
