The ongoing soap opera that started when the DNC needed a deflection from Wikileaks exposing who HRC was always going to win the Democratic Nomination, has now reached an unexpected twist.

In fact what started out as a PR stunt to keep the Democrats from introspection, is now turning out some rather unusual behaviour by the Obama Administration in support of the Clintons (even though they possibly secretly laothe each other].

One could call this Watergate, all over again ?

Less than a week after Stefan Halper was outed as the FBI informant who infiltrated the Trump campaign, public records reveal that the 73-year-old Oxford University professor and former U.S. government official was paid handsomely by the Obama administration starting in 2012 for various research projects.

A longtime CIA and FBI asset who once reportedly ran a spy-operation on the Jimmy Carter administration, Halper was enlisted by the FBI to spy on several Trump campaign aides during the 2016 U.S. election. Meanwhile, a search of public records reveals that between 2012 and 2018, Halper received a total of $1,058,161 from the Department of Defense.
Halper's July 28 email to Page - sent two days after the second portion of his contract kicked in, suggests that the espionage operation against Trump associates was still active seven months into the new administration.

It's entirely possible of course that Halper was conducting legitimate research for the Obama administration while also participating in an FBI/DOJ spy operation on the Trump campaign.
Is on US President now to be asked to provide answers on spying directed at another US President ?

Following Halper's doxxing, President Trump called for an official investigation by the Department of Justice - which Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein assigned to the office of the Inspector General, headed by Michael Horowitz.

I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

We look forward to the Inspector General's findings.
Unprecedented, surely ? [ unless one believes that LBJ was using the CIA to spy on JFK ].

From Mr Halpers payment of Trump associates to travel to London and inviting others to his farm in Virginia shows the groundwork of a well financed operation.

What a load of bollocks.

Even Analyzer admits Halper was

If everyone already knew he was FBI, then he was not much of a f*cking spy, was he? So Obama or Comey sent in a spy who basically wore a T-shirt with "I AM A LONGTIME FBI OPERATIVE" on it?

Will ya giddup the yard with yer Russian Bot shyte.

The politicisation of the FBI needs to be reined in.

Halper only engaged with people who had dodgy Russia links

Cyp, using the term “links” creates the illusion that this was long term. The real two issues are the contrived meeting between Mr Joseph Mufsad (who has disappeared leaving a pregnant fiancée behind)and a Trump associate and prior to the election, a June meeting between the U.S Rome agent with Mr Steele of the dossier infamy.

You deliberately side stepped the core issue - the FBI are supposed to be above interference in the democratic process.

Like Qatar, the Saudis, Denis the Menace, many dodgy business interests, and Uranium One, they all see to have been helping the Corporate Dumbocrat Party.

And then at the end you combine bad spelling, lousy grammar and a patronizing mindset, to round off a very dishonest attempt to NOT talk about the illegality of it all.

When you consider the way the Obama admin politicised agencies like the IRS (which recently apologised for targetting conservative groups), with Lois Lerner pleading the 5th to the Congressional committee, its not surprising if they did the same with the FBI. Getting the IRS to go after conservatives is very Nixonian. In the Nixon tapes he wants the IRS to audit liberal newspaper editors. Planting a spy in the Trump campaign is also very Nixonian - akin to the Watergate breakin.

Regarding what? Doing its job as here? Are you of the mind that the FBI has no legitimate interest in assuring that the WH isn't compromised by quislings and international corruption?

The J Edgar type carry on around the time of the 2016 election followed by the rampant leaking under Trump. Looks to me like the Comey gang trying to keep themselves in power by playing both sides.

Actually, that is something that Wikileaks are doing to tackle, than the FBI.

You are aware that Carter Page was in Moscow in Summer 2016 ?

It's nothing of the sort. There's an abundance of shady known facts and reasonable inferences taken from it that something's rotten regarding unlawful collaboration with foreign governments and interests behind the Trump campaign for President. Stefan Halper was asked to strike up conversations and advise as such regarding specified people suspected of such conduct such as Papadopoulos, Flynn, Page and Clovis who are...quelle suprise...well known regarding the Russia connections.

Halper served as a White House official in the Nixon, Ford, and Reagan administrations...hardly a HRC/Dem activist. Nor was he an embedded spy within the Trump campaign.

It does, however, seem that Trump has outed and hysterically spin doctored about Halper in order to muddy, misdirect and distract from his ever-increasingly indicated collaboration with foreign governments and interests similar to how Cheney & Co outed CIA agent Valerie Plame to cover up, misdirect and muddy the waters regarding their bogus pretence for the Iraq War.

It seems to be highly appropriate and merited intelligence activity

But when the cult leader tells his followers it is "bigger than Watergate" they must all agree and go forth to spew scutter
It is in their Cult obedience manual

Interesting, Estulin claims WikiLeaks is CIA agitprop so who is right?
The FBI of course.

This cat? He's either a clear crank and/or Russo-Castrophile propagandist seeking to mine the useful idiot conspiracy theorist crowd of the West.

Daniel Estulin (Vilnius, Lithuania, August 29, 1966[1]) is a Lithuanian-born conspiracy theorist whose main interest is the Bilderberg Group, . . .
On August 19, 2010, the Cuban state news agency Prensa Latina published the full text of a "reflection" by former President Fidel Castro which was devoted to quoting Estulin from Los secretos del club Bilderberg, on the topic of "The World Government." [9] The selected quotes from Estulin's book focused on material credited to Lyndon LaRouche and members of his movement.

If it doesn't come from Trump and his acolytes, then it's lügenpresse and part of a grand conspiracy by HRC and the *drumroll*.....transmogrific 'Deep State'.

If Varadkar was detected having the kinds of shady moves and connections with Putin as here, of course G2 would want to take a look at it. No difference here with the FBI regarding the Trump campaign.
