The revelation that the FBI unleashed a spy on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election was just the tip of the iceberg.
New details reveal the story is even worse than anyone thought.
A bombshell report about what the spy did after the election has everyone up in arms.
Alleged spy Stefan Halper did not stand down after the election.
Halper continued running active measures against Donald Trump even though he was President.
This included attempting to weasel his way into the administration by pitching himself for an Ambassador post.
“President Trump’s top trade adviser, Peter Navarro, recommended appointing Stefan Halper, an academic and suspected FBI informant on the Trump campaign, to a senior role in the Trump administration, Axios has learned.
Behind the scenes: During the presidential transition Navarro recommended Halper, among other people, for ambassador roles in Asia. A White House official said Halper visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building last August for a meeting about China.
Context: During the transition everyone involved in Trump’s presidential campaign were asked to submit resumes for administration positions. Halper, who already knew Navarro in the context of being a China scholar and interviewing for his anti-China book and film, pitched himself for an ambassadorship in Asia, according to a source briefed on their interactions. Navarro says he submitted Halper’s name for the Asian ambassadorship — we have not been able to confirm the country — along with around a dozen other people for roles in the region.”
The story only escalated from there.
Former Trump campaign advisor Michael Caputo appeared on Fox News and stated that a second spy was dispatched and tried to work him for information.
And Caputo also declared that the FBI was not the only agency that tried to infiltrate the campaign.
Michael Caputo on FBI informant: "Let me tell you something that I know for a fact, this informant, this person they tried to plant into the campaign … he’s not the only person who came into the campaign. And the FBI is not the only Obama agency who came into the campaign." pic.twitter.com/k1BFAYNCuP

Trump supporters believe the CIA was the other agency that worked with the FBI on building a spy ring to penetrate the Trump campaign.
Former CIA Director John Brennan is a vocal critic of the President and conservatives point to Harry Reid claiming Brennan used Reid to leak information planted by Brennan about the Trump campaign and Russia.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Reid also had the impression that Brennan had an ulterior motive. He concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russian operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign.”
According to the book, Brennan told Reid that the intelligence community had determined that the Russian government was behind the hack and leak of Democratic emails and that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind it. Brennan also told Reid that there was evidence that Russian operatives were attempting to tamper with election results.
Reid’s letter referred to some public reporting about Trump campaign associates’ links to the Kremlin, but he also included a reference to information that may not have been made public at the time. He cited allegations that were included in the infamous Steele dossier about Carter Page, an adviser to the Trump campaign at the time.”
These reports are leading critics to ask serious questions.
First, was Halper ordered to continue his covert operation against Donald Trump after the election or was this a mission he undertook on his own without any prompting from his FBI handlers?
Second, how many undercover operatives made up the spy ring that the Obama administration unleashed against the Trump campaign?
This mushrooming scandal is already worse than Watergate and many feel these blockbuster reports are just scratching the surface of the abuse of power and wrongdoing carried out by the Obama administration.
