  • Trump campaign vet: Informant used me to get to Papadopoulos

    Sam Clovis, a former national co-chairman of the Trump campaign, is one of three Trump figures known to have been contacted by FBI informant Stefan Halper during the 2016 presidential campaign. Clovis received an email, out of the blue, from Halper, whom he did not know, on August 29, 2016 — after Halper had been in touch with Carter Page and just before he contacted George Papadopoulos. Page and Papadopoulos were peripheral, sometime volunteer Trump foreign policy advisers, but they are key figures in the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election. Clovis,...
  • Stefan Halper Speaking To The BBC – “Trump Headed Toward Watergate” – Who Is The Spy?

    IWB ^ | Ruby Henley
    There is a high probability that Stefan Halper is the spy, who was ‘inside the Trump White House.’ Below is a clip of Stefan Halper speaking to the BBC in 2017. Halper is believed to be the mole. Halper is a former CIA operative, a current informant for the FBI, has an anti-Trump motive, is connected to Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, and worked to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 presidential election. But it seems to me we are looking at a number of spies inside the inner circle, who had the means and the background needed to spy...
  • Is Alexander Downer now walking back his story about meeting George Papadopolous?

    ELLEN FANNING: I want to start by asking you: did you meet with George Papadopoulos in the Kensington Wine Bar in May of 2016? And if so, what did he say to you? ALEXANDER DOWNER: Well, let me be blunt about this. Of course it has been widely reported that I did. The original transcript has a comma after "Of course" but there's no verbal pause indicating such. It sounds like Downer may be walking the encounter back. He demurs about everything he's asked regarding Papadopolous.

    The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show. Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.

    ...Just as the dossier’s credibility began to wane—none of the allegations regarding Trump have been verified—a New York Times article from Dec. 30, 2017 corrected the record to show that the FBI’s inquiry into the Trump team’s possible ties to Russia in fact had nothing to do with the Steele dossier, or Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, as the paper had been reporting for the past year. No, it began after a meeting between Papadopoulos and the Australian ambassador to the United Kingdom, Alexander Downer, in a London bar, back in May 2016. At that meeting, Papadopoulos, who, according to...

    FLASH: FBI Investigating Millions Of “Mishandled” Dollars Funneled To Clinton Foundation Another day, another scandal for the Clinton Foundation. According to reports, the FBI is investigating millions of “mishandled taxpayer” dollars funneled to the dubious non-profit from Australian taxpayers. Zerohedge reports via LifeZette: The FBI has asked retired Australian policeman-turned investigative journalist, Michael Smith, to provide information he has gathered detailing multiple allegations of the Clinton Foundation receiving tens of millions of mishandled taxpayer funds, according to LifeZette. “I have been asked to provide the FBI with further and better particulars about allegations regarding improper donations to the CF funded...

    An FBI agent shared the name of former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos with Trump dossier author Christopher Steele during a meeting in early October 2016. That new bit of information was revealed in a column published Wednesday by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. Ignatius reports that Steele, a former MI6 agent, met with an old FBI contact in Rome around Oct. 1, 2016 to share findings from his investigation into Donald Trump’s and the Trump campaign’s associations with the Russian government. “At this meeting, the FBI official asked Steele if he had ever heard of Papadopoulos,” reports Ignatius, who...

    Conservative Republican Reps. Mark Meadows (N.C.) and Jim Jordan (Ohio) are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to step down, citing recent leaks from the Justice Department and FBI. "If Sessions can't address this issue immediately, then we have one final question needing an answer: When is it time for a new attorney general?" the two GOP lawmakers asked in an op-ed for The Washington Examiner. "Sadly, it seems the answer is now," they continued. "It would appear he has no control at all of the premier law enforcement agency in the world." The lawmakers went on to cite a...

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 1/1/2018 | SUNDANCE
    Let us be clear on what the “insurance policy” was. The insurance policy was, in totality, the entire fraudulent Russian Conspiracy Narrative; and all of the accompanying –and subsequent– FBI and DOJ collaborative actions that were taken, under the auspices of an FBI counterintelligence operation, in order to generate an entirely false premise. The goal of using the “insurance policy” was to destroy, and possibly impeach, President Trump. All of it. As the Inspector General investigation continues: ♦FBI Agent Peter Strzok has been reassigned to the HR department. ♦FBI Lawyer Lisa Page, personal legal aide to FBI Asst. Director, Andrew...

    There is no way to evaluate the trustworthiness of anonymous sources and unpublished documents, so why try?At this point, it’s safe to say the publicly available reports muddle the Mueller investigation so much that the only thing we “know” is all sides have more than enough circumstantial evidence to justify their pre-existing hopes and dreams. Left-wing partisans would have you believe that Mueller has the goods on Trump, and that conservative critiques of Mueller’s team or the Clinton campaign’s role in creating the so-called Steele dossier are nothing more than bad-faith attempts to discredit the investigation and undermine faith in...

We’re onto Collusion 2.0, in which it is Papadopoulos — then a 28-year-old whose idea of résumé enhancement was to feign participation in the Model U.N. — who triggered the FBI’s massive probe by . . . wait for it . . . a night of boozy blather in London. What’s going on here? Well, it turns out the...
  • DeSantis: NYT Papadopoulos Claim Not What FBI and DOJ Told Congressional Investigators

    Florida Representative and Judicary Committee member Ron DeSantis appears on Sunday Morning Futures and deconstructs the leaked intelligence community propaganda pushed by the New York Times. Essentially DeSantis states the claims surrounding the origin of the 2016 Russian Probe, made by the leaked intelligence sources, does not align with the sworn congressional testimony given by the FBI and DOJ to the judiciary committee. @02:00: “There was just an article in The New York Times yesterday where they’re leaking about this Papadopoulos, which actually conflicts with previous stories, and is not anything anyone can say under oath on-the-record to us.

  • Transparent DOJ and FBI Desperation: New York Times Attempts “Trump Operation” Justification

    Immediately following confirmation by Senator Lindsey Graham about the origin of the 2016 FBI Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Donald Trump, The New York Times, via Clinton’s favorite voice Maggie Haberman, pushes out an article attempting to cloud, obfuscate and justify the joint FBI and DOJ surveillance operation against Trump. The timing, content and presentation of the disinformation is transparent in the intended motive. More and more people are recognizing the FBI application to the FISA court was based on political information, the Steele Dossier, assembled by political operatives and used by political operatives within the DOJ National Security Division and...

    During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton. About three weeks earlier, Mr. Papadopoulos had been told that Moscow had thousands of emails that would embarrass Mrs. Clinton, apparently stolen in an effort to try to damage her campaign. Exactly how much Mr. Papadopoulos said that night at the Kensington Wine Rooms with the Australian, Alexander Downer, is unclear. But two months later, when leaked Democratic...

    The senior Trump campaign official who brought George Papadopoulos onto the Trump campaign met last week with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors and testified before a federal grand jury, NBC news is reporting. Sam Clovis, the campaign’s co-chairman and top policy adviser, brought Papadopoulos onto the campaign’s foreign policy team last March, The Daily Caller was told on Monday. Interactions between Clovis and Papadopoulos, a 30-year-old energy consultant, became a subject of intrigue on Monday after a federal court unsealed documents showing that Papadopoulos accepted a plea deal earlier this month for lying to the FBI about his interactions with...

    Carter Page, former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, said he might have been included in emails with George Papadopoulos, another campaign foreign policy adviser, regarding Russia. MSNBC host Chris Hayes pressed Page Monday night if Page remembered Papadopoulos telling people Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to set up a meeting and that he was approached about Hillary Clinton’s emails. “I know nothing about e-mails,” Page said. “Definitely nothing. I heard nothing about that.” “A direct question on this particular thing,” Hayes said. “Do you remember Papadopoulos emailing about this stuff? “There were tons of emails happening on a...

    RUSH: Okay, here’s a sound bite about George Papadopoulos who has pled guilty to lying to the FBI. He pled guilty on October 5th, but it was just announced today. On CNN this afternoon, Wolf Blitzer spoke with Jay Sekulow, who is part of the Trump legal team, about this. He said, “Let’s talk about George Papadopoulos.” Wolf was so flustered, he first called him George Stephanopoulos. He said, “Let’s talk about George Papadopoulos, now pled guilty. He was arrested over the summer. How worried are you, [Mr. Sekulow], that his involvement in the campaign working with national security advisors...
