Corrupt Intelligence Apparatchik Leaks “Informant” Name (Stefan Halper) and Defensive Perspective To New York Times…

The New York Times has essentially outed the CIA and FBI informant as Stefan Halper tonight in yet another lengthy justification article citing the reasoning from the perspective of the corrupt intelligence officers who conducted the surveillance and spying operation against the Trump campaign.

Guess what?…. After 18 months of denials, their justification framework isn’t selling.  It isn’t selling even amid the barking moonbats who normally defend the left-wing crazy.  If you want to gauge the level of fail, just read the comments section of the New York Times justification article.   D’oh… the awakening is here like a DNC party during the ALS ice-bucket challenge.

According to The Times, the FBI and CIA were using Halper to protect candidate Trump from the Russians.  Yes, that’s their story and they’re sticking to it.  However, from that angle: Are they currently investigating candidate Trump for failing to collude in the Russian efforts they were attempting to protect him from?  {{{D’oh}}}  Yup, the special counsel is an ongoing effort to keep protecting President Trump… or something.

Wait,… what?.. Huh?

Oh, ya just gotta read the NYT snippets.

Two things to remember: First, they denied all of this for eighteen months.  Second, these are their leaks, their story, their version; delivered via their spin, from the people who were conducting the scheme against the Trump campaign:

(New York Times) […] The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the ensuing months with the other aide, Carter Page, who was also under F.B.I. scrutiny for his ties to Russia.

[…] No evidence has emerged that the informant acted improperly when the F.B.I. asked for help in gathering information on the former campaign advisers, or that agents veered from the F.B.I.’s investigative guidelines and began a politically motivated inquiry, which would be illegal.

Oh, well… by-the-book then?

[…] they took steps, those officials said, to ensure that details of the inquiry were more closely held than even in a typical national security investigation, including the use of the informant to suss out information from the unsuspecting targets. Sending F.B.I. agents to interview them could have created additional risk that the investigation’s existence would seep into view in the final weeks of a heated presidential race.

LOL “suss out”, oh, it just sounds so benign eh?

[…]  Details about the informant’s relationship with the F.B.I. remain scant. It is not clear how long the relationship existed and whether the F.B.I. paid the source or assigned the person to other cases.

Um, yeah. Halper was paid.  But The Times ain’t sure…. details are “scant” dontchaknow.

[…] The informant is well known in Washington circles, having served in previous Republican administrations and as a source of information for the C.I.A. in past years, according to one person familiar with the source’s work.

[…] F.B.I. agents were seeking more details about what Mr. Papadopoulos knew about the hacked Democratic emails, and one month after their Russia investigation began, Mr. Papadopoulos received a curious message. The academic [informant] inquired about his interest in writing a research paper on a disputed gas field in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, a subject of Mr. Papadopoulos’s expertise.

A “curious message“. LOL as in: unprompted, unsolicited. Just out-of-the-blue?

The informant offered a $3,000 honorarium for the paper and a paid trip to London, where the two could meet and discuss the research project.

“I understand that this is rather sudden but thought that given your expertise it might be of interest to you,” the informant wrote in a message to Mr. Papadopoulos, sent on Sept. 2, 2016.

[…]  Over drinks and dinner one evening at a high-end London hotel, the F.B.I. informant raised the subject of the hacked Democratic National Committee emails that had spilled into public view earlier that summer, according to a person familiar with the conversation. The source noted how helpful they had been to the Trump campaign, and asked Mr. Papadopoulos whether he knew anything about Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Mr. Papadopoulos replied that he had no insight into the Russian campaign — despite being told months earlier that the Russians had dirt on Mrs. Clinton in the form of thousands of her emails. His response clearly annoyed the informant, who tried to press Mr. Papadopoulos about what he might know about the Russian effort, according to the person.

Damnit.. he ain’t biting. Always with the Greeks. Aaargh.

The assistant also raised the subject of Russia and the Clinton emails during a separate conversation over drinks with Mr. Papadopoulos, and again he denied he knew anything about Russian attempts to disrupt the election.

Oh, it’s the sexy “female assistant over drinks” maneuver…

[…]  Mr. Page, a Navy veteran, served briefly as an adviser to Mr. Trump’s campaign until September 2016. He said that he first encountered the informant during a conference in mid-July of 2016 and that they stayed in touch. The two later met several times in the Washington area. Mr. Page said their interactions were benign.

Remember, in May 2016 Mr. Page was the key witness working on behalf of the FBI in a case against Russians. [ Evgeny Buryakov Case] Now in September 2016, the same FBI is fixing to put Carter Page under a Title-1 surveillance warrant and label him an agent of a hostile foreign government….

… funny, that.

The two last exchanged emails in September 2017, about a month before a secret warrant to surveil Mr. Page expired after being repeatedly renewed by a federal judge.

Damnit, another one who won’t bite.  Even the last ditch effort just before the FISA surveillance warrant expired didn’t help.  Rats!  Aaarggh.

[…]  The informant also had contacts with Mr. Flynn, the retired Army general who was Mr. Trump’s first national security adviser. The two met in February 2014, when Mr. Flynn was running the Defense Intelligence Agency and attended the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar, an academic forum for former spies and researchers that meets a few times a year.

According to people familiar with Mr. Flynn’s visit to the intelligence seminar, the source was alarmed by the general’s apparent closeness with a Russian woman who was also in attendance. The concern was strong enough that it prompted another person to pass on a warning to the American authorities that Mr. Flynn could be compromised by Russian intelligence, according to two people familiar with the matter.  (read more)

      How about an audit showing how much the NYTimes is paid by Fusion GPS?

      They’re stuff is so obviously spun by someone more knowledgable than the printed authors.

      The latest article seems to be protecting the FBI not CIA.

      The sedition could be worse–what if the main purpose of the Papadoo investigation was less Carter Page-like and more to do with Operation Mid Year Exam? The idea Russians would have Hillary’s emails might be a big threat to closure of the Hillary investigation. Is that why, after they couldn’t ignore it since the Brits and Australians heard it, the FBI tried so hard to make it seem like Papadoo’s statement could not be the common blather about Hillary’s server but about the upcoming DNC and Podesta hacks?

      Interesting sidelight: One of the “reporters” on this special news about the “informant” is Laura Jarrett, a relative newbie in the business since she was hired recently with no prior experience that might justify her assignment to this matter. Except her mother is also named Jarrett, eh, and probably one of the conspirators in the WH.

        Outing Halper is a way to protect Mifsud. Mifsud is probably a UK spy who met with Papadoo before Papadoo met with the Australian Ambassador. Mifsud told Papadoo that the Russians had Clinton’s emails and a month later, after the Australian arranged a meeting with Papadoo, Papadoo showed the Australian how informed he was by repeating Mifsud’s info to the Australian. Halper met with Papadoo in Sept, months after the Australian met with Papadoo and then reported to the FBI.

        The participation of British spies in the Trump surveillance is another big part of the story. Supposedly Hannigan, the head of the UK’s NSA, hand delivered material to Brennan outside of normal channels. Hannigan resigned 3 days after Trump became President. Hannigan was only in the job for 2 years and was supposedly doing very well. Prior heads of UK GCHQ stay for 5-6 years.

    Why did Strzok record in his paperwork that Flynn was NOT lying? The other agent was not in on the insurance policy, but Strzok certainly was. So the ambush interview on Flynn was part of something else? Perhaps it was McCabe’s wrinkle, “all in the wrist action,” to turn a different screw on Flynn, his own personal screw, because Flynn had defended Robyn Gritz. McCabe saw a weapon, that phone call to the ambassador, and he used it.

    That would make the ambush interview similar to John Dean in Watergate days, the rumor being that they broke in to the DNC to get some record of Dean’s wife involved.

    Or not!

      I think we need to remember that the agents said they did not see any “physical indications that Flynn was knowingly lying”. That is not the same as saying “He was not lying.”, although coming from agents who would probably have well developed skills in detecting indications of lying, it is a significant exculpatory statement. If it was subsequently edited out of the notes, that would be evidence of malfeasance.

      Also don’t assume Strzok heard the actual recording.

      He may have been told what was on the recording by Yates.

      It’s possible Flynn’s lawyers trusted an FBI transcipt.

      What if Flynn’s first memory was not wrong?

      Or that accurate transcripts would show the evidence to be weak or up to interpretation.

    Their perspective: Ok, that’s done but doesn’t clear all the Trump associates of anything and we will pursue truth and Justice for each and every one of them until Trump is impeached or voted out of office by association.
    Our perspective: These dirty rotten scumbags will pay a price for this cabal and we will get to the bottom of that dossier and how BrennanClapper set it up. Trump will be elected again and the American public will remember this injustice resulting in decades of solid Republican governance for America.

    I have a sneaking feeling the Skripal poisoning in the UK is tied up with the Steele Dossier, maybe as one of the “sources”. His ex MI6 handler lives in the same town and has links to Steele’s firm.
    A neighbour reported to BBC that Skripal had been in contact with Putin about returning home to Russia, that report quickly disappeared.
    This DEADLY Novichock poison apparently killed no-one.
    The UK has refused a visa to Skripals’ neice so she could visit him.
    The Russian Embassy has been denied access to him.
    It was reported that Skripal was to be taken to the USA and given a new identity, courtesy of the CIA. Why ??

      Poisoned Russian spy Sergei Skripal was close to consultant who was linked to the Trump dossier – 7 MARCH 2018

      security consultant who has worked for the company that compiled the controversial dossier on Donald Trump was close to the Russian double agent poisoned last weekend, it has been claimed.

      The consultant, who The Telegraph is declining to identify, lived close to Col Skripal and is understood to have known him for some time.

      Col Skripal, who is in intensive care and fighting for his life after an assassination attempt on Sunday, was recruited by MI6 when he worked for the British embassy in Estonia, according to the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency.

        An exerpt:

        Skripal, who is in intensive care and fighting for his life after an assassination attempt on Sunday afternoon (Monday NZT), was recruited by MI6 when he worked for the British Embassy in Estonia, according to the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency.

        Skripal moved to Salisbury in 2010 and the Telegraph understands he became close to a security consultant employed by Christopher Steele, who compiled the Trump dossier.

        The British security consultant, according to a LinkedIn social network account that was removed from the internet in the past few days, is also based in Salisbury.

        On the same LinkedIn account, the man listed consultancy work with Orbis Business Intelligence, according to reports. Orbis is run by Steele, a former MI6 agent, who compiled the dossier on Trump that detailed his allegedly corrupt dealings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

        The dossier has sparked a formal investigation in the US into Russian collusion in the US presidential election, to the fury of both Trump and Putin.

        If the Kremlin believed that Skripal might have helped with the dossier, it could explain the motive for the assassination attempt in Salisbury town centre. Skripal’s daughter is also in intensive care, as is a police officer who rushed to help them after they were attacked with nerve agent.

    If you’re trying to protect someone from bad people in their organization, you tell them you’ve got someone inside or ask them to hire your person- you let them know there may be a problem. If you’re spying on someone, you insert someone into their organization- and don’t tell them. And further- don’t tell them there may be a problem.

    The FBI didn’t tell Trump they had someone in his organization. Draw your conclusion from that.

    Dammit, I have had it with Rudy!
    AP article today in local lib-rag is titled “Trump says FBI Put Spy in Campaign, Lawyer Casts Doubt”
    The “doubt” that was cast was in the form of Rudy saying “Well, we aren’t absolutely sure, but…”
    Look, somebody tell Rudy that the media aren’t his buddies, so don’t speak to them like you are having a beer over the back fence! Sure, the headline is a gross mischaracterization of what he said, but what the hell do you expect? He could have just said “We are almost certain that…” if he wanted tp leave himself some wiggle room, but no, he has to state it in the negative for them!
    I think Rudy is a huge liability, not only because he speaks without care and consideration, but I think he is possibly going to allow Trump to sit down with Mueller! With the whole scandalous mess starting to fall into place, now is the time to let your enemies make those mistakes without interrupting them!
