Defendant Igor Danchenko’s Motion in Limine to Introduce Public Statements Published and Adopted by the United States
Notes: This matter is before the Court on Defendant Igor Danchenko’s Motion to Dismiss the Indictment for Failure to State an Offense
Defendant Igor Danchenko, by and through counsel, moves in limine to admit statements the Government made in publicly available guidance and training material posted on official Government websites to advise witnesses about how to testify and answer questions. These statements directly contradict the illogical prosecutorial theory employed here by the Special Counsel and are relevant to and support Mr. Danchenko’s defense that he did not knowingly provide false statements to the FBI. As discussed below, these statements are admissible because they are relevant and not hearsay at all or, alternatively, because they fall into an enumerated exception to the rule against hearsay.
