Steele dossier researcher arrested in Durham probe: report

A researcher who gathered information for the Steele Dossier was reportedly arrested by federal authorities on Thursday.

The New York Times, citing people familiar with the matter, said analyst Igor Danchenko has been arrested in connection to the special counsel investigation headed by John Durham, who was appointed during the Trump administration to probe the FBI’s inquiry into Russian interference.

The controversial Steele Dossier was a 35-page document, later leaked, that pulled together intelligence on potential links between former President Trump and Russia.
