"
Friday's outing of longtime CIA and MI6 asset Stefan Halper as an FBI asset sent to infiltrate the Trump campaign has social media abuzz today. Reactions have ranged from celebration to outrage, with little inbetween.

To recap, after two weeks of hunting for a "mole" in the Trump campaign, the New York Times and Washington Post both printed incredibly detailed descriptions of Halper - withholding all but his name, solidly corroborating a March report by the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross about Halper's meetings with the Trump aides. Neither publication give Ross credit, of course.

Somehow several anti-Trump intellectuals got their wires crossed, conflating President Trump and Senate Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes' calls for transparency by the DOJ, with the actual media outlets that exposed Halper.

Senior Brookings Institute fellow, and James Comey's close friend, Benjamin Wittes is beside himself - angrily tweeting: "I have a whole lot to say about how the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and the President of the United States teamed up to out an intelligence source...," adding in a subsequent tweet "But I am too angry to write right now—and Twitter is probably not the right forum. So I’ll leave it at this for now: Important people defiled their oaths of office for these stories to appear."

I have a whole lot to say about how the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and the President of the United States teamed up to out an intelligence source who aided our country in a properly predicated counterintelligence investigation against a hostile foreign power.

Others have noted that Halper, a longtime asset of MI6 and US Intelligence - is a rabid Trump hater who openly supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US election.

"I believe [Hillary] Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union," Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time," Halper, who served as deputy assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs and senior adviser to the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice, said.

@BBCr4today
Is the Trump FBI inquiry of Watergate proportions? Stefan Halper, a White House official under Nixon, says it's "moving in that direction".

Yet others noted that the FBI's Russia "investigation" into Trump didn't seem to extend to Hillary Clinton. We would remind readers that her campaign chair, John Podesta, sat on the board of Massachusetts energy company Joule Unlimited, along with senior Russian official Anatoly Chubais and Russian oligarch Ruben Vardanyan – who was appointed by Vladimir Putin to the Russian economic council.

Two months after Podesta joined the board, Joule managed to raise $35 million from Putin’s Kremlin-backed investment fund Rusnano. Not only did John Podesta fail to properly disclose this relationship before joining the Clinton Campaign, he transferred 75,000 shares of Joule to his daughter through a shell company using her address.

We're sure the FBI was all over that...

Weird how they didn’t “protect” Hillary.

Washington Post

@washingtonpost
Perspective: If the FBI used an informant, it wasn’t to go after Trump. It was to protect him. https://wapo.st/2LfqkD5

FBI, lacking evidence needed to open a criminal investigation of the Trump camp, decided to open a CI investigation. With the blessing of the Obama WH, they took the powers that enable our govt to spy on foreign adversaries & used them to spy on Americans. https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/05/crossfire-hurricane-new-york-times-report-buries-lede/


Nick Short 🇺🇸

@PoliticalShort
FBI opened a CI investigation in the absence of any (a) incriminating evidence, or (b) evidence implicating the Trump camp in Russian espionage. The FBI collaborated w/ CIA to probe an American political camp using foreign-intel surveillance & informants. Bigger than Watergate...

@johncardillo
Stefan Halper, the spy placed into the Trump campaign to entrap and smear was also an MI-6 asset.

Questions for @Comey:

What’s his relationship with Christopher Steele?

Was he paid by Fusion GPS?

Was he paid by FBI part and parcel to the deal they cut with Steele?

The media accuses Nunes of wanting to get an informant killed. Then the media continually leaks details about said informant. Pick a side guys!

Nick Short 🇺🇸

@PoliticalShort
Not to be outdone by the NYT, more DOJ/FBI leaks to WaPo, which essentially out the informant.

Even Midtown Manhattan bars were abuzz with people shaking their heads over the FBI's double-standards and ham-handed investigation.

@SohrabAhmari
Last night all the guys at my regular bar in Midtown—not by any means a lunch-bucket institution, if you will—were saying the FBI thing has gone too far and enough with elite institutions trying to undo the result of a democratic election.

This is in Midtown Manhattan[!!!].

Stefan Halper worked with 3 Republican Administrations, teaches International Affairs, and his father in law was a top CIA official.

If the Russians, Chinese, Albanians, Latvians, Sinn Fein, and the Pansexual Peace Party's intelligence services haven't fingered this guy for a US Intel operator decades ago, they're retarded.

No collusion!!!!! Numerous people in my immediate family and in my campaign made many efforts to communicate with people in the Russian government about getting dirt on the Clinton campaign. A few of them are under indictment, and others lied to my administration and the fbi about it. My family members are not indicted, though, because Mueller knows I would go ballistic if they were. These people I hired and sired were successful at times, and have changed their stories so many times I cannot keep up myself, lol. No collusion, though. Witch hunt. Russians hacked the Clinton campaign and the DNC, and leaked tons of shit to Wikileaks, a great great organization by the way. Russians also hacked voter rolls in many states. I told Russia publicly on TV, that they would be greatly rewarded if they could get Clinton's emails. No collusion!!!!!! Russia spread fake news using their many years of experience manipulating dummies through fake news. Lots of people forwarded this obvious fake news about Clinton, because they are useful idiots. It was brilliant. The best part, No collusion!!!, is I just claim that Clinton was the real collusion, and Clinton was the real watergate, the real news is the fake news, and blah blah, and the idiots eat it right up even though it is chopped dog food type bullshit. Witch hunt!!!!!!

The whole thing would be super funny if it weren't so real and so sad.
