A bombshell report that was ignored by the Trump-hating “mainstream” media (MSM) earlier this week noted that a top FBI official told congressional investigators last fall that the bureau had some contacts within the 2016 Trump campaign who were linked to operation “Crossfire Hurricane.”
As reported by The Epoch Times, the contact was not identified by name but it sounds like he very likely was FBI “informant” Stefan Halper, a one-time Oxford University professor who was paid over $1 million by the Obama-run Defense Department between 2012 and 2018, nearly half of which was handed out during the 2016 campaign cycle.
According to portions of the transcript published exclusively by the news site, the FBI official who provided a deposition to congressional investigators, Trisha Anderson, said the bureau relied on sources who “already had campaign contacts” so it could put Team Trump under surveillance.
“To my knowledge, the FBI did not place anybody within a campaign but, rather, relied upon its network of sources, some of whom already had campaign contacts, including the source that has been discussed in the media at some length beyond Christopher Steele,” said Anderson — No. 2 attorney at the FBI’s Office of General Counsel at the time and who was extensively involved in the bureau’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.
As previously reported, Halper has been an “asset” — spy? — for the U.S. intelligence community for decades. As The Daily Caller reported in May 2018, Halper has long ties to the CIA and to Britain’s equivalent spy agency, MI6.
As for his involvement in what has become known as “Spygate,” The DC noted further, Halper was sent in early by the Deep State to infiltrate the Trump camp:
Halper, a former Cambridge professor with deep ties to the CIA and MI6, approached Navarro in 2017, seeking a nomination to an ambassadorship to an unidentified Asian country, Axios reported on May 21.
At the time he submitted his application for the ambassadorship, Halper was working as an informant for the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. As part of that under cover operation, Halper met with three Trump campaign associates — Carter Page, Sam Clovis and George PapadopouloTrump
If Trump had lost we wouldn’t know anything about Halper and the plot to destroy Trump
Halper would stay in touch with Page from July 2016 (the month then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would clear Hillary Clinton of criminal mishandling of classified material) until Sept. 2017. Page is the Trump campaign adviser the Obama-led Deep State targeted specifically for what everyone involved has euphemistically called ‘surveillance’ but which really amounted to spying.
Anderson told congressional investigators and lawmakers that “she was one of only about 19 people who had known about the Trump-Russia investigation prior to its official opening,” The Epoch Times reported. She also told congressional committees that she signed off on the original FISA warrant to spy on Page without even reading it.
Anderson said she was also involved in the bureau’s probe of Clinton’s abuse of classified emails.
As for Halper’s background, he’s been involved at a high level in American politics for decades. He was President George H. W. Bush’s National Director for Policy Development during his 1980 campaign. After Bush lost out on the GOP nomination and then joined the victor, Ronald Reagan, as his vice presidential nominee, Halper worked as deputy secretary of state for politico-military affairs. While working for Reagan he served three different secretaries.
Afterward, Halper became a senior advisor to the Pentagon and Justice Department from 1984 to 2001. His former father-in-law was Ray Cline, a former CIA deputy director. Halper also may have spied on the Jimmy Carter White House, gathering foreign policy information (which Cline refutes).
It needs to be said over and over that if POTUS Trump had not defeated the most corrupt presidential contender in history Americans would have never learned details of the lengths to which Obama’s government went to a) protect Hillary, and b) try to depose POTUS Trump in a coup attempt.
