Revealed: FBI Anti-Trump Spy Stefan Halper Was Feeding Smears to Teammates in Fake News Liberal Media

A new report by Margot Cleveland at The Federalist reveals FBI spy and informant Stefan Halper was the source for several media attacks on President Trump after the election.

Halper was spying on the Trump campaign and administration, being paid by the FBI and leaking hit pieces to damage Trump to the liberal media including the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal.

Halper openly advocated for Hillary Clinton in 2016 while spying on the Trump campaign.

Stefan Halper also pitched himself for a senior position inside the Trump administration to continue his spying on the president.

The Gateway Pundit reported in the fall of 2016, Pentagon analyst Adam Lovinger complained to his bosses about Trump campaign spy Stefan Halper’s exorbitant contracts.

The informant, Stefan Halper, was paid a total of $411,575 in 2016 and 2017 for work with the US government that included spying on the Trump campaign.

Internet sleuths discovered that Stefan Halper was paid $282,295 in September 2016 for “research and development in the social sciences and humanities.”

Another Twitter sleuth identified a second payment to Halper in the amount of $129,280 making the total payments to Halper more than $400,000 from President Obama’s Administration to spy on the future President of the United States.

Then Eric Felton reported at Real Clear Politics that Halper managed to collect $1.05 million from the the Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessment  over four years for work that appears to be barely supervised and criminal in nature.

And  previously reported Halper’s spying continued into 2017 after Trump was sworn into office.  The deep state was still spying on Trump.

Halper tried  to keep his big money by claiming that he can’t be sued for lies about General Michael Flynn because he [Halper] was a government agent.

In July 2018 top congressional Democrats wrote National Intelligence Director Dan Coats to demand the Trump administration keep classified information on Trump campaign spy Stefan Halper.

This creep Halper lied about General Flynn.  He needs to be held accountable for his involvement in the coup to overthrow President Trump.

Margot Cleveland reported on Halper’s ties to his teammates in the liberal fake news media.

The Federalist has learned that the now-outed CIA and FBI informant Stefan Halper served as a source for Washington Post reporter David Ignatius, providing more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-Trump conspiracy theories. In addition, an email recently obtained by The Federalist from the MI5-connected Christopher Andrew bragging that his long-time friend Ignatius has the “‘inside track’ on Flynn” adds further confirmation of this conclusion.

Svetlana Lokhova, the Russian-born English citizen and Soviet-era scholar, told The Federalist that she only realized the significance of her communications with and about Ignatius following the filing of attorney Sidney Powell’s reply brief in the Michael Flynn case.

In last week’s court filing, Powell highlighted how the CIA, FBI, Halper, and possibly James Baker used the unnamed and unaware Lokhova and the complicit Ignatius to destroy Flynn. This James Baker is not the one who worked under James Comey at the FBI, but a James Baker in the Department of Defense Office of National Assessment.
