McCabe was fired for lying to the FBI among other allegations. He has since had his pension reinstated through a settlement with the new Democrat-led Department of Justice.
Among the disproven false claims in the Steele dossier was the so-called “pee tape” that involved Russian hookers and Donald Trump.
Durham investigation ongoing
Danchenko, first interviewed by the FBI in 2017, is facing charges similar to those recently filed against Michael Sussmann.
Sussman was indicted in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in September on a charge of lying to the FBI. Sussmann was a high-profile cybersecurity lawyer who worked for the Clinton campaign at the time. And he took the dossier and other mocked-up cybersecurity info to the FBI to kick off an investigation.
Before the current indictments, Durham was able to convict former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith. Clinesmith pled guilty and admitted he altered email evidence. The email was used to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant for surveillance of the Trump campaign.
