The New York Times: Russian analyst Igor Danchenko was arrested in the case of “Trump’s spying with Russia”

The United States has arrested Russian analyst Igor Danchenko on charges of collecting information for the so-called “dossier” of former US President Donald Trump for the year 2017.

The New York Times, quoting its sources,  indicated that “Danchenko’s arrest came as a result of an investigation conducted by Special Prosecutor John Durham, who was appointed by the administration of the former US president to investigate the circumstances of the intelligence services’ surveillance of Trump headquarters.”

Trump’s campaign headquarters sued the New York Times in February 2020, on “false accusations of collusion with Russia and that the newspaper knew of the fraud at the time of publication, but did so with the willful intent to harm the campaign” of Trump’s Russian analyst Igor Danchenko – archive

The US Department of Justice delivered to Congress in March 2019 a summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, in which he noted “there is no evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia.”

“The investigation did not reveal the complicity of those involved in the Trump campaign with Russia or the coordination of intervention measures” in the US election, it said.
