Americans worst fears were confirmed when news reports revealed the FBI deployed a spy to infiltrate the Trump campaign.
But the news was even worse than people thought.
A secret payment was the smoking gun that proved the Obama administration was guilty in the worst scandal ever.
Cambridge professor Stefan Halper is alleged to be the spy who snooped around the Trump campaign.
Halper met with three Trump campaign officials – George Papadopoulos, Sam Clovis, and Carter Page – in an effort to pump them for information about alleged Russian election meddling and to try and insert himself into the campaign.
Halper has a long history with the CIA going back to 1980 and is reported to be an informant for the Mueller investigation.
That isn’t the worst news.
Halper works for the Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessment and raked in almost $300,000 in tax payer money in 2016 and 2017.
The New York Post reports:
“It is not clear if the professor was paid to speak with Trump campaign figures, but public records show that he has received large payments from the federal government in the last two years.
The Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessment — a shadowy think tank that reports directly to the secretary of defense — paid Halper $282,000 in 2016 and $129,000 in 2017.
Halper has close personal and professional ties to the CIA reaching back decades. He is the son-in-law of a former deputy director of the agency and worked on the 1980 presidential campaign of George H.W. Bush, who had served as CIA director.
When Bush became Ronald Reagan’s running mate, Halper was implicated in a spying scandal in which CIA officials gave inside information on the Carter administration to the GOP campaign.”
The Obama administration was using tax payer money to fund a spy whose goal was to infiltrate the opposing party’s Presidential campaign.
This is an unprecedented scandal of abuse of power.
The revelation that Obama’s Deep State used a taxpayer funded spy against Donald Trump leads to a series of disturbing questions which the Wall Street Journal editorial board asked in a scathing editorial:
“The public deserves to know who tasked the informant to seek out Trump campaign officials, what his orders were, what the justification was for doing so, and who was aware of it. Was the knowledge limited to the FBI, or did it run into the Obama White House?”
This bombshell was the final cherry on top.
When Donald Trump stated last March that Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower, the so-called “mainstream” media mocked his tweet.
But it ended up being a statement of fact.
The Obama administration used every trick in the surveillance state playbook to snoop on the Trump campaign.
National security letters.
And taxpayer funded spies.
This is the worst scandal in American history and the guilty parties in Obama’s Deep State must be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
