Stefan Halper is only the tip of the iceberg in Obama spy scandal
We finally have definitive evidence that the Obama administration engaged in clandestine operations against members of the Trump campaign. But the revelation that Stefan Halper was planted by the Obama intelligence community to gather information on the Trump team is only the tip of the iceberg in exposing the vast, unprecedented espionage operation.
Over the weekend, suspicions were confirmed that Stefan Halper — who has decades-long ties to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6 — was a secret informant who gathered information on Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.
Halper reportedly began to communicate with Page in mid-July 2016, which counters the timeline offered by former FBI Director James Comey, who claimed that the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation began at the end of that month. He and Page continued to communicate well into President Trump’s tenure, which raises the possibility that the investigation did not conclude with the president’s election.
Halper is not a lone wolf
Halper did not initiate this operation of his own accord. He was a confidential informant; someone in the government had to be managing his role in the undercover operation. If congressional investigators can bring Halper in for an interview, they can ask him to expose the network behind the operation. At the very least, Halper obviously knows who he was reporting to.
It’s doubtful that Halper was the only human intelligence source…
