Pro-Trump Pentagon Analyst Was Stripped of His Security Clearance by Obama Holdovers
PJ Media ^ | AUGUST 17, 2018 | DEBRA HEINE

A Pentagon analyst was stripped of his security clearance by Obama holdovers after he complained of suspicious government contracts with Stefan Halper, the FBI informant who spied on the Trump presidential campaign in 2016, the Washington Times reported. The pro-Trump analyst also apparently ruffled feathers when he blew the whistle on an alleged sweetheart deal with a woman Chelsea Clinton referred to as her “best friend.”

Adam Lovinger, a senior official of the Defense Department’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA), had his security clearance yanked on May 1, 2017, and has been relegated to performing clerical chores ever since. ONA analyzes future threats and ways to defeat them.

Lovinger believes that ONA retaliated against him because he had complained to his bosses about the questionable contracts in the fall of 2016.

After his security clearance was revoked, Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint with the Defense Department inspector general against James H. Baker, director of ONA. The complaint also names Washington Headquarters Services, a Pentagon support agency that handled the Halper contracts, which totaled hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“It was a topic of conversation within the office,” Lovinger's attorney, Sean M. Bigley, told the Washington Times. “What is Halper doing, and why is he being paid astronomically more than others similarly situated?”

Bring in more daylight.
Complaining about a screwy contract should not be a matter worthy of punishment.

Goose, gander.

On a different topic, how cool would it be to have “Bigley” as your last name?

Yes, more winning. Though it doesn't always appear so at the beginning, EVERYTHING is working in President Trump's favor. Every weapon hurled at him has boomeranged against his attackers, and every new accusation eventually spotlights their own hidden sins.

The Trump Administration needs to:

1, Identify all government employees on the payroll during the Obama administration.

2. Fire all those affiliated with the democrat party.

It would have been done more than a year ago if there was a attorney general instead of the useless dwarf named Sessions.

Still, corrupt liberal elites need to be purged out of top level positions in Washington. ALL of Washington. They’re toxic and poison any system they touch.

Partner, We are surely O.K. with this one since the America Hating Imposter Obama had a bunch of far left leaning snakes in his administration and they did not care about what would happen to this great country of ours, period.

**********************************************************
Snake Sessions’s feet are planted in DOJ cement...he will never willingly leave until he is fired or POTUS’s term ends.

Can you imagine how different it would be if we had JOE DEGENOVA as AG? That would be a beautiful sight to behold!

The Left is unable to get their heads around the notion that Trump is not a Bush. They live with a stereotype of Republican officeholders that they cannot shake off. They keep pounding their heads with the same bat trying to make their headache go away.

It is not just the Obama vipers, it is the entire culture of the bureaucracy. It is the nature of the beast, Obama simply added a particularly virulent form.

Partner, we need to start shouting this at the top of our lungs and that is that our culture in government is so corrupt right now!!!

It is because we had 8 years of the America Hating Imposter Obama and it will take a long time to get these vermin out of government.

W. Bush was not that great and of course, we had the ultimate "Dawg" Bill Clintton.

With friends like these who needs enemies.

I counted 28 years of absolute corruption and cronyism in government since we have had the worst presidential leadership for 28 years in my book after President Ronald Wilson Reagan.

Thank God we have a new sheriff in town and that is President Donald J. Trump.

Partner, President Trump is a "Street Fighter" and he will not be kicked around all day long by that lying, deceitful, traitorous, treacherous, backstabbing Fake News MSM.

The MSM does not know how to fight a street fighter since they all voted for the Rat party and they know they are the right arm of the Rat party. Heck we already know this.

The MSM is a bunch of pansies and they do not know how to fight with their hands period.

The MSM loved kicking W. Bush and his father while he was on the ground. W. never once fought back and neither did his father. W. Bush was a failure in our book and so was his father.
