“[Stephen] Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.” Now, this is new. Halper is part of the MI6 bunch in the U.K. that partnered with the FBI and agents from Harvard and Yale. This is the Oxford-Cambridge, Harvard-Yale connection with the intelligence apparatus of both countries. What it all means here so that Halper just another link from the Clinton campaign to the Russians in creating all of this phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roll stuff on Trump, including the dossier. – Rush Limbaugh 8/28/18

Following President Trump’s decision to allow the declassification of key Russia records at Attorney General Bill Barr’s discretion, former Trump campaign aide Carter Page told Fox News his contact with alleged FBI informant Stefan Halper at a pivotal period in the Russia probe was more extensive than previously reported.
Separately, Fox News has learned congressional investigators have been renewing their focus on a text message sent nine days before the government’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application to monitor Page, in which then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page questioned “who’s playing games,” “scared” and “covering.”
Carter Page said he first met Halper in July 2016 after receiving an invitation to an overseas seminar. He added that his contact with Halper continued for more than a year through September 2017, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian actors.
Page said that “during that period, amidst frequent terror threats,” Halper was one of the few people he felt comfortable confiding in. “He [Halper] was one of the few people who would talk to me. He seemed understanding of my predicament and the incessant personal security risks that stemmed from the (Democratic National Committee) consultants’ false reports.”
Page confirmed to Fox News that he visited Halper’s farm in Northern Virginia several times beginning in August 2016 — starting three weeks after Strzok officially opened the FBI counterintelligence probe into possible Russian election interference in late July. On October 21, 2016, the FBI and DOJ obtained a surveillance warrant to monitor Page.
Fox News asked Page if he made any statements to Halper, during this period, that would show he was not acting on behalf of Russia, or would refuse to act on behalf of the Russian government.
“I’m sure Russia came up,” Page responded. “We talked international relations. It must have. … I can’t imagine anything I said could conceivably lead to a FISA.”
Page told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday evening that he wants to see the country to continue to “grow” once people who “have been obstructing” the Trump administration’s agenda are brought to justice.
Republican critics have suggested the earliest records to be declassified and publicly released could reveal so-called exculpatory evidence regarding Page and Trump aide George Papadopolous. Because the FISA court is ex parte, meaning it involves only the government providing evidence without any defense team present, the government has a unique constitutional and procedural responsibility to provide not only evidence supporting its surveillance application, but also exculpatory evidence that could undercut the application.
Some GOP lawmakers have alleged that exculpatory evidence was available but likely withheld from the court.
“There was western intelligence sent to spy on Papadopoulos and there’s a recording and transcript of the conversation,” Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz told Fox News. “And there, Papadopoulos denies any illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. So, they had evidence presumably that was against Papadopoulos and for him. What they will never be able to defend is that they never presented that evidence to the FISA court.”
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.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, 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 perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign.
This “contractor” evidently pulled a lot of weight in the previous Administration.
So, what does all of this mean?
It means that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Department of Justice and President Obama “read in”, embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to be a pipeline of information and to enable Obama’s DOJ and FBI to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party.
And, when that plan failed, the remaining Deep State Operatives kept Stefan Halper spying on Carter Page, even after Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel to investigate “Russian Collusion”.
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 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Economics to sell you.
Obama and his “Deep State” Operatives made Nixon look like an amateur.
