Ingraham Segment: Stefan Halper “Agent Provocateur”….

I might be wrong, but this is the first prime-time mention of Stefan Halper I’m aware of:

.

Two days prior to the New York Times article outlining an FBI counterintelligence sting operation to infiltrate the Trump campaign I wrote the following:

I have a sneaking suspicion the Machiavellian connections between the U.S. intelligence apparatus and multiple foreign agents/actors, including the work of Stefan Halper in the 2016 presidential election, are only a few days from fully surfacing.  There could be enough sunlight on U.K/U.S. political and intelligence officers to launch multiple investigations.

Well, buckle up, I think today we are going to see and hear much, much more.

…at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos,… ~NYT

Originally, attention was paid to Glenn Simpson saying in that August 2017 testimony the FBI had some additional ‘inside’ knowledge in addition to Chris Steele’s information.  Talk of campaign interlopers increased last week after the DOJ/FBI started stonewalling Devin Nunes and accusing him of trying to reveal the identity of a confidential CIA and FBI source for the 2016 origination of the FBI counterintelligence operation against Trump.

People began connecting Glenn Simpson’s prior 2017 testimony about ‘inside sources’ to the 2018 DOJ statements about exposing CIA/FBI ‘sources’. {See Here} Due to defensive leaks from within the corrupt intelligence apparatus the name Stefan Halper was identified.  {See Here} Stefan Halper is a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6.

Then came this:

New York Times – […] The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials…

Stefan Halper connects to the same circle of intelligence operatives Christopher Steele used for his sketchy Dossier construct.  Halper’s role looks simple: make the low-level Trump campaign aides appear dirty… the CIA would relay that information to the FBI; and the FBI counterintelligence unit (Agent Peter Strzok) would take it from there.

A close circle of politically connected U.S., British, Australian and Russian intelligence insiders begins to back-stop the larger conspiracy.  The information provided by the international crew was apparently shaped and funneled by former CIA Director John Brennan to the FBI for domestic political exploitation.

      The “Russian” contribution exists if Russian sources in British “Ex” Spy Chris Steele’s memos are real.

      They’re more likely fakes, created by Steele, MI6 or someone on the American side like Nellie Ohr.

      Steele probably knew nothing about Papadoofus and likewise Halper.

      Steele’s comment about an insider in the Trump camp is probably just the Trump insider of Russian background mentioned in the Steele memos. Steele might believe this person actually exist and believed he was getting real FBI intel to launder. Remember his un-spy like worry about Trump ruling America?

      One reason Simpson doesn’t want this explored is that it is easily traceable by Mueller, the source being in America. It’s like the Steele Memos stories of Trump moles in the DNC–so easily proveable fake, Mueller is staying far away from it.

        BTW, Steele has said about his last December memo he did not “seek” the dodgy intel in it, he merely “received” it. That would be from a US or British intel operation. The whole time he may have been merely receiving intel from US sources.

        An idea that Nellie Ohr made this bad spy novel all up I find intriguing. Her CIA job was watching Russian open source media. The Dossier strangely makes Putin’s press agent, Pskov, a central spy mastermind/handler. Nellie would know Pskov. Is this her own dreams playing out, that she could be a mastermind too? Would Steele imagine the role for Pskov?

        I also wonder if Nellie did the research of the January 2016 intel report on statements about Hillary in the Russian media. If she did that whole report is Hillary-paid product: CrowdStrike, Steele, and Ohr.

          I think Glen Simpson had a more direct role. When he saw Manafort become Trump’s manager he decided on the “Russia Narrative.” He was already familiar with Manafort.
          And Russia was already Simpson’s specialty, therefore the chosen angle of attack.

        Yup, a crappy work of fiction by Steele, Nellie Ohr, Halper, Mifsud, and maybe others with some understanding of how RUS intel people write reports, so they could make it look facially credible, despite the insanity and complete lack of support of the content. The role of fiction writer/editor has been my thought for Nellie Ohr from the first time she surfaced in this cesspool.

          If Steele himself wrote it and imagined it, I would say he suffers from delusions of grandeur of his spy-mastering powers. Did his body of agent have truth telling ray guns that made all sorts of people give up lucrative and highly self-damaging information? All this for $168,000?When I first read the “dossier” it was so obviously overwrought, wide and insane I thought it was obviously fake. Most spy novels are fake too, but more believeable. If the tone of the writing was meant to sound Russian that means the first plan was not to say Steele wrote it. When the media wouldn’t publish maybe that’s when the conspirators’ thought to bring out Steele as an authority.

          I think Mifsud was maybe a British Asset that Mueller burned and labeled as a Russian in order to push the Russian conspiracy angle.

    The redacted Strzok/Page text messages are much more damning than is currently known, and this meant that both had no choice but to fully cooperate with the IG’s office. The information and documentation that they turned over comprehensively exposed the conspiracy to subvert the Trump presidency. Horowitz has been sitting on a gold mine of criminal evidence and patiently allowing the perpetrators to incriminate themselves publicly for these many months. The smart ones have been in hiding, but the stupid egoists have been committing reputation suicide. This biggest crime may be that these crooks ran our government at it’s highest levels for many years.

    Is Huber tough enough (and brave enough) to indict a former President, a former Sec. of State, “top men” at the FBI, CIA and DoJ and an army of crooked government agents? I doubt it.

    The only way to insure justice is served will be via an Executive Order arresting the conspirators and then trying them before a military tribunal. This blatant sedition and treason by a President and Secretary of State can not be tolerated. Obama and the Clintons have made a mockery of our laws and the Constitution. These bastards need to pay dearly for their crimes against DJT and the American people.

      The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war. Acts of dis-loyalty during peacetime are not considered treasonous under the Constitution. Nor do acts of Espionage committed on behalf of an ally constitute treason. For example, julius and ethel rosenberg were convicted of espionage, in 1951, for helping the Soviet Union steal atomic secrets from the United States during World War II. The Rosenbergs were not tried for treason because the United States and the Soviet Union were allies during World War II.

        This is correct and a major reason there have been so few trials/convictions for treason. Scumbags like John Kerry, during the Vietnam “War” couldn’t be tried for treason, b/c it wasn’t a declared war–it was a “police action” or “an advisory action” or whatever other BS LBJ tried to spin. Now sedition is a whole ‘nother ball of wax. So is RICO.

          I’m unable to research any caselaw or legislative history at this time, but the definition doesn’t include “in time of war.” For example, the oath taken by military includes an oath to defend the US from all enemies, foreign and domestic. That doesn’t necessarily require that a domestic enemy be at war with the US.

          That being said, I’m far from an expert in prosecuting cases of treason and I also suspect that it is very infrequently used as prosecution for treason can be mislabeled as persecution of opposing political viewpoints, no matter how well deserved the prosecution is.

          Statutory definition:

          Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

          (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

              I did. Before I commented. People aren’t prosecuted for violating the Constitution, they’re prosecuted for violating the U.S. Code (or these days, any number of statutory provisions that define criminal violations. The Constitution also doesn’t necessarily “define” treason as only occurring during time of war.

              Be that as it may, I’m not saying that I know I’m right. To the contrary, I’m admitting that I could be wrong. But one could argue that Bill Ayers was: 1) a domestic enemy of the United States, and 2) committed treason among hid more mundane crimes, like murder, attempted murder, etc.

        With gracious respects to all,

        US Congress declared war on terror Sept. 14, 2001, we have been at war for the past 16 years 8 months. Three presidents have used this act and it was hope there would be a clarification when it was challenged in 2013. The War Powers Act has been relied upon by the 3 previous presidents, yet when congress or the senate is pressed on this, they seem to just go into their mumble syndrome. It came up when 44 declared his red line, one faction says no declaration is needed and then another faction says yes, but in the end both factions just keep playing hot potato. I know there are more able minded persons to make that crystal clear, cheers!

    The “insurance policy” that Strzok and Page discussed is slowly but finally being revealed. It’s obvious now that the plan was to set up Trump to make him look like a corrupt Russian puppet, just as Brent Budowsky of The Hill and John Podesta discussed in a December 2015 email exchange that Wikileaks exposed. This week’s leaks reported by the MSM begin to reveal some of the groundwork that was laid by the conspirators.

    Halper May very well be the source or not. Another professor though, in my opinion, would be a better choice. This professor became a Republican in 2010. What his affiliation, if any, was before then is unknown. He managed to run for office twice and lost. Became a delegate. And worked on Rick Perry’s campaign. He was also an anti-Trumper. So what a surprise when he went to work for the Trump campaign in late 2015. And he hired both Papadopoulos and Page. Hmmm. And is it possible that, in his military career as an officer and later working for different defense contractors, that maybe, just maybe, he might have gotten acquainted with intelligence agency types? So what about it Sam?

    “The ruling also noted that Steele’s position so far in the British case is “that he did not provide copies of the dossier to anyone else. He accepts that he conducted some “off-the-record briefings” with journalists. He (Steele) also accepts the FBI has received the dossier.”

      My thought is that the late October letter to Congress was NOT planned in advance. Rather, Comey was forced to go with the letter to regain control over the narrative when the leaking from NYPD and the FBI NYO was getting louder because they recognized Andy McCabe’s effort to slow-walk any response to the Hillary E-Mails discovered on the Weiner computer until after the Election. By pretending to re-open the investigation, the HQ FBI folks would be in charge of the decision whether there was any reason to go further than Comey had gone on July 5. And if that second HQ absolution occurred less than a week before Election Day, it would be the last word….unless, of course, Hillary lost but that was impossible.

    Sundance,
    Thanks for using the term, “Agent Provocateur”. At least I’m not the only one who realizes that there ARE still Agent Provocateurs operating within the “Shadow Government”.
    Unfortunately, I ran into a couple of them in person sometime in the 1990’s. I was just finding out about the shadow Government and was involved in a small group of patriots who were trying to educate our circle of friends. Two brothers visited one of our meetings and about an hour into the meeting they started trying to interject the idea of building home made bombs into the conversation. We quickly let them know that they were in the wrong meeting and suggested that they find another group to meet with. They did. That group ended up being raided by the (BATF at that time) . Of course the agent provocateur brothers got off scot free while the original leaders of the group they infiltrated faced Federal charges.
