    Democrats who probed Russian interference and hyped Steele dossier silent after Danchenko indictment


    Democrats who probed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections and touted the Steele dossier are now quiet following the indictment of Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source of the dossier's contents, for making false statements to the FBI.

    Fox News sought comment on Danchenko's indictment from seven Democratic members who sat on the House Intelligence Committee during its Russia probe and promoted or defended the dossier, including Reps. Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Joaquin Castro, Mike Quigley, Jackie Speier, André Carson and Jim Himes.

    None of their offices responded. Schiff was confronted over the dossier but refused to address the issue head-on. None of the other Democrats appears to have addressed Danchenko's indictment despite previously hyping the anti-Trump report.

    "You defended, promoted and even read into the Congressional Record the Steele dossier," Ortagus told Schiff on "The View." "We know last week the main source of the dossier was indicted by the FBI for lying about most of the key claims in that dossier. Do you have any reflections on your role in promoting this to the American people?"

    Schiff avoided directly answering the question and instead said that "whoever lied" to Steele or the FBI should be prosecuted.

    Adam Schiff said he had direct evidence. These people are such bull****ters.

    Then we have this dude.

    Swalwell

    Swalwell replied that he did not see anything as going too far. MacCallum then pivoted to the dossier.

    "So it doesn't bother you that the [Hillary] Clinton campaign paid for a dossier to be put together by someone who had all kinds of ties to intelligence and put together something that turned out to be not necessarily factual?" MacCallum asked the California Democrat.

    "Which part of it hasn't been proven factual?" Swalwell said.

    "Are you serious?" MacCallum asked. She then listed off obscene allegations within the dossier, none of which were ever confirmed.
