Russian national Igor Danchenko has officially pleaded not guilty.
The discovery phase will now begin.
The preliminary trial date is April 18, 2022.
Russian national Igor Danchenko, charged as part of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to five counts of making false statements to the FBI.
Danchenko is accused of lying about the source of information that he provided to Christopher Steele for his “dossier” on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. He entered the plea before Judge Anthony John Trenga in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, in Alexandria.
Federal prosecutors on Wednesday told the judge that the next step will be the discovery phase, which they said will be “fairly extensive,” adding that they hope to share the unclassified material with the defense soon.
But the prosecution also said there will be a “vast amount of classified information” to deal with during that discovery process, noting that they are working to get clearances for the defense team to be able to review.
