Now that the trial of an alleged Hillary Clinton-connected operative is drawing near, the Clinton camp has quickly developed a spontaneous case of selective amnesia.
According to the Washington Examiner, Igor Danchenko, said to be Christopher Steele’s primary source for the hoax Russian dossier that the U.S. government used to spy on former President Donald Trump, his associates, and undermine his campaign and presidency, will soon face trial.
If you ask Clinton’s lawyers about him, they’ve never heard of the guy.
Throw it out?
They even tried to use the claim that there was no connection between Danchenko and Clinton’s campaign in order to have a federal RICO lawsuit — brought against Clinton and other involved in the collusion hoax — thrown out.
NEW: In Hillary’s filing asking a judge to dismiss Trump’s RICO lawsuit against her (and others) we may be getting a sneak peak at how she plans to handle the upcoming Durham trial, attempting to distance herself from Steele Dossier source Igor Danchenko.https://t.co/5W9Ac9YQID

“Danchenko could not have conspired with the RICO Defendants,” the former secretary of state’s lawyers said.
They added: “He does not know them. He has never met, communicated, or agreed with any of them about anything. This is why all of [Trump’s] allegations that Danchenko conspired with anyone are conclusory and factually baseless. … [Trump] can allege no specifics. There are none.”
BREAKING: Special Counsel John Durham has requested at least 30 court subpoenas for witnesses to testify at the Oct. 11 criminal trial of Hillary Clinton dossier subcontractor Igor Danchenko in Alexandria, Va.

The Examiner noted: “Danchenko, a Russian-born lawyer, was charged in November by special counsel John Durham with five counts of making false statements to the FBI, which Durham says he made about information he provided to Steele for his discredited dossier.”
Durham, in his official charges, lays out how he believes Danchenko is connected to Clinton and her inner circle.
His trial is set to begin in October, and it will likely draw intense media coverage.
The timing could be absolutely critical for Democrats, as it’ll likely wrap up just before the November midterms.
