Russiagate Spy Paid $1 Million By Obama Was WaPo Deep Throat

12062

Stephan Halper, the longtime CIA and FBI operative who conducted espionage on the 2016 Trump campaign, was feeding information to Washington Post reporter David Ignatius through his handler, according to The Federalist, which describes his actions as “more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-Trump conspiracy theories.”

According to a court filing by Michael Flynn’s defense team, Halper’s ‘handler’ in the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), Col. James Baker, “regularly lunched with the Washington Post reporter.

(Also leaking to Ignatius was Christopher Steele)

As we noted in May of 2018, Halper was paid over $1 million by the Obama administration through the Office of Net Assessment – nearly half of which came during ‘Russiagate’ – in which he not only surveilled multiple Trump campaign aides, he was involved in an effort to tie General Flynn to a Russian academic, Svetlana Lokhova, as part of a smear campaign.

Svetlana Lokhova, the Russian-born English citizen and Soviet-era scholar, told The Federalist that she only realized the significance of her communications with and about Ignatius following the filing of attorney Sidney Powell’s reply brief in the Michael Flynn case.

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. –The Federalist

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 sued Halper and multiple MSM outlets for defamation after Halper-fuelled rumors that she was a Russian spy who had ‘honeypotted’ Flynn, which were first promoted by Lokhova’s mentor at Cambridge University – Professor Christopher Andrew, who wrote in the London Sunday Times in February 2017 that her brief meeting with Flynnn during a 2015 dinner event was the beginning of the former National Security Adviser’s relationship with a Russian spy.

Prior to Andrew’s article, other outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and the New York Times had published rumors of a Flynn connection to a supposed Russian spy, however Lokhova had no clue it was her until she was outed.

“Halper had been pushing the story that I was a Russian spy and Flynn’s mistress since December of 2016,” Lokhova told The Federalist. “The New York Times’ Mathew Rosenberg told me a source had been circulating these stories since December 2016,” she said, adding “but they held the story until they could find a second source and someone at the Cambridge dinner.”

In his book “The Plot Against the President,” Lee Smith confirms that the story about a Flynn-Lokhova intrigue was circulated to the press starting in December 2016.

But it wasn’t until the Wall Street Journal published its March 17, 2017, article suggesting she had inappropriate contacts with Flynn that Lokhova discovered the earlier article Andrew had written about her for the Sunday Times, Lokhova said. Before then, within days of February 28, 2017, several journalists reached out to her for comment, including two working for the Wall Street Journal, but Lokhova didn’t know why.

She also didn’t comprehend who the inquiring journalists were at the time. That remained true even after her mentor and unknown betrayer, Andrew, wrote Lokhova telling her that “David Ignatius of Washington Post is in UK at moment. I’ve known him for years and trust him. I’ve given him your email and he accepts that if you don’t wish to respond, that an end to it.” –The Federalist

It is unknown what Andrew meant by Ignatius’s “inside track,” however the above email was sent to Lokhova just one month after Ignatus reported the illegally leaked details of Flynn’s conversation with Russia’s ambassador – leading to his firing.

  3. Susan Rice and John Brennan hated General Flynn from the start because he disagreed with their policies. It’s always some Russia operative bullshit they have half of the American public believing. Let’s talk about some Russia spy’s right in our backyard. Marie Yovanovitch, Alexandra Chalupa and Lt.Col.Vindman, these are the people that should be brought up for Treason… The Deep State is made of those who have incredible influence inside the government and elsewhere and by any means necessary seek their influence and will to achieve their outcome by any means necessary including TREASON…

  4. Obama is an,American hating jerk, he was the worst President ever, that means worse than ,Jimmy Carter, how sad is that? These people hate America and want to destroy it, so we can,have a global society, called communism, so they can rule the world. Imagine a world ruled by these American haters: crime, starvation, poverty, education system that would indoctrinate rather than educate, the world population as their slaves, anyone want this for future generations? I don’t think so, not people who think for themselves anyway, God bless President Trump.

  5. Stefan Halper is a CIA and FBI OPERATIVE he has a 50 YEAR SHADY PAST. He was Near George Pappodopolous he BETRAYED HIM and he was NEVARIOUS FORCE BEHIND REMOVAL of RETIRED LT. GENERAL Flynn. Stefan Halper Colonel James Baker are DEEP STATE OPERATIVES they USE DECEPTION LIES DECEIT TO DESTROY PEOPLE.

  6. We already have a school system that indoctrinates rather than educates. It starts in preschool and continues through the highest levels of education. The indoctrination is that socialism is good and capitalism is bad. From the Washington Post: “The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 percent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42 percent said they support it.” This is America’s future. When these useful idiots realize the error of their ways, it will be too late to reject socialism and embrace capitalism. I’m glad I probably won’t be around to see it.

    • The commies said “in the 50’s” they would destroy us from the inside. Looks like they have almost completed their goal. God help us!

  7. Sad what the damp is leaving as a legacy for our future generations. Supporting deceit, socialism, communism, and trying to erase Chrisianity are of no benefit to this nation. Tearing down those who are trying to build up this nation. Spreading lies and deception about the loyal while building up and enriching the traitors should be treated as treason. They work to destroy the nation from within. They are indeed parts of a dark and dismal swamp.

  8. More importantly, aren’t commie / pinko / Liberal / Nazi = Socialist = Terrorist democrats most likely to WARN fellow commie / … Terrorist of impending DOOM?

  9. It appears that ONA was even more crooked than the leaders of FBI, DOJ, (incl Comey, Rosenstein, etc) and that even Brennan, Clapper, Yates, etc AND Pres Obama had to have been in on it.
    And to think if POTUS Trump was not there, none of this would have been discovered, but would have all been buried by crooked Hillary and all her dem stooges (aided and abetted by the Deep State and the fake news media).
    And no one still is being held accountable or charged.

  10. I said it in 2016, and I say it again. POTUS needs to send the culprits to the Crossbar Hotel ASAP. He needs to crowd the DOJ to do it. That is the only way he will get them (Deep State) off his back.

  11. hink I about time the Democrats be brought to heel
    We The Peopleneed to sue the Democrayic party and all the Denocraap managers for wasting taxpayers money
    they have been paid by us during this entire circus
    I think 100 million dollars should cover the expense nicely
    So America WAKE UOP AND LETS BRING THESE IDIOTS TO HEEL
    THIS WILL never STOP UBTIL THE PEOPLE DO SOMR THING ABOUT IT
    NOTHING IS BEING DONE IN EITHER SIDE SENATE OR THE HOUSE
    We didn’t put them in office to pursue their own personal agendas and that is what id happening at this time Pelosi and Shiff need to be removed from any thing to do with this along with several others

  12. Just look at the DEMWITTS , Pelosi son works for Ukraine, Biden son works for Ukraine, Kerry stepson worked fo Ukraine, OBOZO gave billions to IRAN, and some of it went under the table to the Clinton Foundation as well as the Uranium sold to Russia, you want CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA, just LOOK AT THE DEMWITTS. I think they are DELIBERATLE pointing away from them to Trump to HIDE THE REAL CRIMES they committed. NOW we need to see WHO ELSE is involved, MY GUESS, the DEMWITTS the scream the LOUDEST are the MOST GUILTY!

  13. Brennan should be in high security federal prison. He is a card carrying communist and converted to Islam while serving in Saudi Arabia. He is a high security risk and should never be anywhere near any important government officials. His loyalty is most definitely not to the US.

  14. We have to get rid of Trump…….before they dig up all the illegal things we (democrats) have done to fill our pockets while screwing the American people………..well Nancy, Adam and the rest of the crew, WE, the American voters, are not blind to your crap. You are blind to believe we are that stupid and ignorant. You may find the Republican party running the house as well.
