If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp!
Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI.
Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.
The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap Trump campaign aides. Papodopoulous has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, while Page was the subject of a federal surveillance warrant.
…The Halper revelation also shows the Obama administration’s FBI began prying into the opposing party’s presidential nominee earlier than it previously admitted.
Halper’s sit-downs with Page reportedly started in early July 2016, undermining fired FBI Director James Comey’s previous claim that the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign began at the end of that month
To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.
This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.
According to The Institute for World Politics, where he is a Research Professor…
From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.
His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia
Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.
1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80 National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980 National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:
The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.

1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown.
1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.
With a list of accomplishments like those above, Halper made the the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign.
You realize what this revelation means, don’t you, gentle reader?
It means that a sitting President embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump. And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Hillary Clinton School of Grace and Charm to sell you.
Obama made Nixon look like an amateur.
I have written a lot of blogs detailing just how petty and vindictive a person that Barack Hussein Obama is. However, even I had no idea the extent to which “Chicago Politics” had invaded the inner workings of our Federal Government under Petulant President Pantywaist.
Looking back on Obama’s rise to political power, however, these accusations are not far fetched, at all.
In 2004, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) decided to run for The United States Senate.
In order to have a successful Senatorial campaign, Scooter had to secure tremendous financial backing and be the recipient of astute political mentoring. No problem.
It is now very well-known that George Soros, evil genius, major Democratic Party donor and anti-Israel crusader, has been a generous contributor to Barack Obama. However, not too many people know that a loophole in McCain-Feingold allowed Soros and his family members to be extremely generous in their support of Obama’s 2004 Senatorial campaign.
Obama had to run against Blair Hull in the primary and then Jack Ryan in the general (both multi-millionaires). Obama received huge donations from individuals, to so-called “millionaires exception.” Usually, individuals are limited to giving $2300 to candidates in federal elections, but if the candidates are running against millionaires, these limits do not apply and candidates are allowed to receive up to $12,000 from a single individual. Soros and his family gave Barack Obama $60,000. This does not count the money that Soros was funneled to so-called 527 groups (Moveon.org, for example) that have also been politically active; nor does it include money that Soros raised from tapping a network of friends, business associates, and employees.
Besides garnering unlimited campaign funds, as the campaigns entered their closing rounds, the news ”happened to be” leaked to media outlets that both Hull and Ryan had “personal scandals” in their past. The timely release of this news wiped out both of their campaigns, leading to an easy victory for Obama in the primary and then in the general election.
The New York Times Magazine revealed that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political and media adviser, may well have been behind the leak of the story that doomed the Hull candidacy as the primary reached its home stretch. I’m shocked.
As he has shown over the years, Axelrod was right at home operating in this gray area, part idealist, part hired muscle. One can not bring up Axelrod’s name in certain circles in Chicago without the matter of the Blair Hull divorce papers coming up. Approaching the 2004 Senate primary, it was clear that it was a two-man race: the millionaire liberal, Hull, leading in the polls, and Obama, who was the figurehead of an impressive grass-roots campaign. One month before the vote, The Chicago Tribune “just happened” to reveal, at the end of a long profile of Hull, that during a divorce proceeding, Hull’s second wife filed for an order of protection. This revelation proceeded to erupt into a full-fledged scandal. This scandal destroyed Hull’s campaign and handed Obama an easy primary victory.
The Tribune reporter who wrote the story later admitted in print that the Obama camp had “worked aggressively behind the scenes” to push the story. However, a lot of folks in Chicago believe that Axelrod leaked the initial story. They will tell you that before signing on with Obama, Axelrod interviewed with Hull. They also point out that Obama’s TV ad campaign just happened to start at almost the same time. Axelrod swears up and down that “we had nothing to do with it” and that the campaign’s television ad schedule was in the works for a long time.
An aura grows up around you, and people assume everything emanates from you.
