REVEALED: FBI Sent Honeypot Spy Posing as Stefan Halper’s Assistant to Meet With Papadopoulos in London Shortly Before 2016 Election

It looks like the Deep State is trying to get ahead of the IG report.

The New York Times dropped a bombshell Thursday and revealed that Stefan Halper’s assistant, ‘Azra Turk,’ who met with Papadopoulos in September of 2016 was actually an FBI investigator posing as a sexy assistant to Halper.

Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos traveled to London in September of 2016 after he received a strange request via email, for a meeting with Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor with CIA connections, to discuss foreign policy.

Halper sent Papadopoulos an email in early September of 2016 offering him $3,000 to travel to London and write a policy paper about Cyprus, Turkey and Israel because Papadopoulos was working in the Israeli energy business and had an extensive amount of knowledge in that field.

Enter the spy posing as a sexy assistant…

Stefan Halper’s assistant, Azra Turk (alias), who Papadopoulos referred to as a ‘honeypot,’ said she flirted with him and directly asked him if the Trump campaign was working with Russia.

It turns out this honeypot was sent to Papadopoulos as part of the FBI’s spying operation on the Trump campaign.

The London operation yielded NOTHING, and the FBI insists their spying campaign was perfectly legal.

Recall, other spies had previously approached Papadopoulos to plant ‘the Russians have Hillary’s emails’ narrative and failed miserably — Joseph Mifsud (fake Russian spy) and Australian diplomat Alexander Downer both approached Papadopoulos months prior to the London operation but Papadopoulos became suspicious of their bizarre behavior and didn’t take the bait.

Via The New York Times:

The decision to use Ms. Turk in the operation aimed at a presidential campaign official shows the level of alarm inside the F.B.I. during a frantic period when the bureau was trying to determine the scope of Russia’s attempts to disrupt the 2016 election, but could also give ammunition to Mr. Trump and his allies for their spying claims.

Ms. Turk went to London to help oversee the politically sensitive operation, working alongside a longtime informant, the Cambridge professor Stefan A. Halper. The move was a sign that the bureau wanted in place a trained investigator for a layer of oversight, as well as someone who could gather information for or serve as a credible witness in any potential prosecution that emerged from the case.

It is unclear whether Mr. Horowitz will find fault with the F.B.I.’s decision to have Ms. Turk, whose real name is not publicly known, meet with Mr. Papadopoulos. Mr. Horowitz has focused among other things on the activities of Mr. Halper, who accompanied Ms. Turk in one of her meetings with Mr. Papadopoulos and also met with him and other campaign aides separately. The bureau might also have seen Ms. Turk’s role as essential for protecting Mr. Halper’s identity as an informant if prosecutors ever needed court testimony about their activities.

Papadopoulos responded to the New York Times article on Thursday and argued that “Azra Turk” was actually CIA affiliated with Turkish intel.

“I agree with everything in this superb article except “Azra Turk” clearly was not FBI. She was CIA and affiliated with Turkish intel. She could hardly speak English and was tasked to meet me about my work in the energy sector offshore Israel/Cyprus which Turkey was competing with,” Papadopoulos said.

The real scandal here is that Papadopoulos was being targeted for surveillance by the US government for his ties to Israel, yet Mueller ensnared him in the Russia witch hunt.

According to Mueller’s report, the US government was suspicious Papadopoulos was working on behalf of Israel as a foreign agent — it is presumed there was a FISA warrant(s) on Papadopoulos as a way to spy on Donald Trump.
