Portly, Well-Paid Spy Who Infiltrated Trump Campaign Source Of WaPo Disinformation On Flynn: Report


A 74-year-old spy who made headlines last year for infiltrating the 2016 Trump campaign was the source of disinformation that made its way to the Washington Post‘s David Ignatius regarding former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, according to The Federalist.

Stefan Halper, who was paid over $1 million by the Obama administration – was enlisted by the FBI to befriend and spy on three members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.

And according to a recent court filing by Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, Halper, the CIA, the FBI, and a Defense official used Russian-born academic Svetlana Lokhova to smear Flynn by feeding Ignatius information suggesting she was a Russian honeypot.

38-year-old Svetlana Lokhova met Flynn at the February 2014 Cambridge dinner organized by Sir Richard Dearlove – a former head of MI6 who was launching an organization called the Cambridge Security Initiative, according to the BBCAlso part of the organizing group was Halper.

General Flynn was the guest of honor and he sat on one side of the table in the middle. I sat on the opposite side of the table to Flynn next to Richard Dearlove because I was the only woman at dinner, and it’s a British custom that the only woman gets to sit next to the host,” Lokhova told Fox News, who added that she has never been alone with Flynn. On the contrary, the unplanned encounter was professional and mildly productive.

Ignatius, meanwhile, has somewhat of a reputation for being a ‘deep state’ media mouthpiece.

Via The Federalist:

In last week’s court filing, Powell highlighted how the CIA, FBI, Halper, and possibly James Baker used the unnamed and unaware Lokhova and the complicit Ignatius to destroy Flynn. This James Baker is not the one who worked under James Comey at the FBI, but a James Baker in the Department of Defense Office of National Assessment.

Powell wrote:

Stefan Halper is a known long-time operative for the CIA/FBI. He was paid exorbitant sums by the FBI/CIA/DOD through the Department of Defense Department’s Office of Net Assessment in 2016. His tasks seem to have included slandering Mr. Flynn with accusations of having an affair with a young professor (a British national of Russian descent) Flynn met at an official dinner at Cambridge University when he was head of DIA in 2014. Flynn has requested the records of Col. James Baker because he was Halper’s ‘handler’ in the Office of Net Assessment in the Pentagon, and ONA Director Baker regularly lunched with Washington Post Reporter David Ignatius. Baker is believed to be the person who illegally leaked the transcript of Mr. Flynn’s calls to Ignatius. The defense has requested the phone records of James Clapper to confirm his contacts with Washington Post reporter Ignatius—especially on January 10, 2017, when Clapper told Ignatius in words to the effect of ‘take the kill shot on Flynn.’ It cannot escape mention that the press has long had transcripts of the Kislyak calls that the government has denied to the defense.

Lokhova has known of Halper’s role in targeting Flynn since Halper was outed as a CIA and FBI informant in May 2018. She then sued Halper and several media outlets for defamation after they falsely repeated Halper’s lies that she was a Russian spy engaged in an intrigue with Flynn.

  1. Bush’s Rinos and the Obama Administration infiltrated and spied on President Trump’s campaign.



    From the VERY BEGINNING!

    “Coup has started. First of many steps,” Zaid wrote. “Rebellion, Impeachment will follow ultimately.”

    Complete and utter TREASON, just not against President Trump as a candidate and now OUR President, but against the AMERICAN PEOPLE!

    “Coup has started. First of many steps,” Zaid wrote. “Rebellion, Impeachment will follow ultimately.”
    Sounds like a full on confession that needs to be addressed, now.
    Where is the law on this? Could AG Barr and Durham have their sights on this?

  3. If you are an American Democrat and still believe that your elected Democratic Congressmen and women have your best interest at heart, then you are either a moron, an imbecile, extremely stupid, or just plain ignorant. They are lie, cheat, and steal from you and you let them. They want Socialism and just look to the UK where a Social Democracy is folding up and destroying itself from the inside out!

  4. I wish all this would come out and Barr would start bringing out indictments to all these people to put a end to all these scams Dems keep trying to do. Nothing happens and they keep doing things time after time without any fear of going to jail. Schiff has done more lying and got caught for it but keeps doing it. If someone breaks our laws and gets away with it time after time, why would they stop?

    • Be patient. first allow Trump to put in honest, constitutional judges and remove the corrupt, deep,state judges that the previous admins put in. Otherwise, all these deepstate judges will deepsix any indictments and no justice will be served. TRump realizes this and is setting the foundation so criminal indictments will be handled justly.

  5. Dens are the deep state and are Domestic terrorist period….Arrest them all and make them prove their innocence like they are trying to do to Trump……

  6. The only reasonable approach to this Criminal activity and prevent it from happening again would be to EXECUTE the persons involved.
    This would send a clear message to anyone else who attempted this lawlessness.

    “They have also weighed an obstruction of justice charge centered on the president’s efforts to obstruct former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation,” ABC News reports.

    Well, it’s ABC news, but they are dolts and in the pocket of Soross/Clinton. Yep for three years rino (mueller) and democraps (schiffty) have been wasting time and LOTS of money to get rid of Our President. And who suffers, WE THE PEOPLE!

    “Speaking to reporters in New Hampshire, Pence stood by President Trump and said if Americans read the administration’s rough transcript of the call they will find “there was no quid pro quo, the president did nothing wrong.”

    Pence called the impeachment inquiry a “disgrace.”

    Thank you Vice President Pence!
