It was all a conspiracy against Donald Trump. And the faux impeachment is just part of that as well.


Justice Department prosecutor U.S. Attorney John Durham is questioning personnel connected to the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment, which awarded multiple contracts to FBI informant Stephan Halper. Halper, who was informing the bureau on Trump campaign advisors, is a central figure in the FBI’s original investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, SaraACarter.com has learned.

These latest developments reveal the expansive nature of what is now a Justice Department criminal probe into the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign. The revelation also comes on the heels of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report regarding the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, announced to Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday night the lengthy investigative report will be released to the public on Dec., 9.

Accoding to the link in the OP Stephan Halper is suppose to be the guy that Trump thinks spyed on his campaign. He apparently spoke to Carter Page to gather information on contacts between him, other members of Trump's team and Russia. Apparently Halper never joined Trump's campaign. Halper first made contact with Page at his seminar in July 2016. Page had already been on the FBI’s radar. Page was accused at the time of being sympathetic to Russia. Halper stayed in contact with Page until September 2017.

The link in the OP is not really talking about what information was gathered but instead about who paid Halper and how will they kept records on that. The Office of Net Assessment (ONA) was responsible for that. They had a $20 million dollar budget to producing outside research projects.
Net assessments are very secret, in-depth analyses that compare U.S. weapons, forces and policies with those of other countries. Net assessments include the most secret details of American vulnerabilities and weaknesses, and thus very few net assessments have been made public. Without net assessments, foreign threats like those posed by revanchist Russia and increasingly aggressive China are often played down as not posing strategic challenges for the United States.

The description of what the office does kind of makes sense on why they would have a person like Halper find out what was going on with Russia.
Anyway the IG of the DoD said that the ONA kept insufficient documentation when it came to Professor Halper. They didn't have enough documents to establish if all the work he did was in accordance with Defense Federal Acquistion Regulation (FAR). An audit of the office found these types of discrepancies were not unique to contracts with Professor Halper.

This has nothing to do with the Mueller Report. It doesn't matter what Halper did. Whatever he did it provided the info to Mueller that related to Carter Page. Carter Page wasn't indited.

Durham’s investigation had nothing to do with the Russia investigation or the Steele dossier. Robert Litt, the formerly the General Counsel to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence under the Obama administration says
he was interviewed by . Durham as part of that investigation. I’m not at liberty to disclose what Durham was investigating, but it concerned events that occurred long before the 2016 election and were unrelated to Russia or the dossier.

Others have reported that Durham has cleared Baker; I have no personal knowledge of that. But I have known Baker for over 20 years. He is a fine lawyer with a punctilious regard for the requirements of the law and a long record of outstanding government service. He doesn’t deserve to have his reputation besmirched by false insinuations made for partisan purposes.”

Oh so this guy made Trump withhold aid? He made Trump ask a foreign leader to investigate his political rival? Or the deep state did?

Is there an actual source on this? I don’t know who Sara Carter is, nor do they name their source. I guess anonymous sources to a site you like is OK?

I have done a lot of research on this story. At present there is a man named Adam Lovinger. He was fired in May 2017 for leaking information to the press. He was a Federal Employee working in the Department of Defence in an office called the Office of Net Assessment (ONA)They had a $20 million dollar budget to produce outside research projects.

The FBI used a Professor by the name of Halper. Halper is contracted to work for the ONA and was paid through them. Professor Halper met Carter Page at his seminar in July 2016. Halper was not a member of Trump's team. Page had already been on the FBI’s radar in the past for his dealings with suspected Russian spy's. The FBI had already been alerted by the Australian diplomat that Papadopouloshad had bragged that Russia had Hillary's emails and of course the FBI knew Manafort had started working with Trump's campaign in June 2016. The FBI would have been incompetent if they didn't check out what was happening given they had Page, Papadopoulos and Manafort with connections to Russia all working for Trump in the face of the DNC hack.

Lovinger was brought into the National Security Council (NSC) at the beginning of 2017 by Flynn but he still reminded an employee of the Department of Defence.(DoD).

While he was working for the ONA he had complained to his boss, Mr. Baker in 2016 about ONA’s costly academic-type studies that seemed to him to be a waste of taxpayer money.
He also complained about Stefan Halper, who has received more than $1 million from ONA to conduct such studies.

While working as a National Security Council analyst Lovinger's security clearance was cancelled in May 2017 and fired for leaking to the media. He was fired from the Federal Government as he couldn't do his job without a security clearance.

In June 2017 he filed a whistleblower complaint AFTER he had been fired. Leakers are people that go to the press and don't get to become legal whistleblowers after the fact. If Baker wasn't listening to a legitimate complaint about waste Lovinger could have gone to the IG of the DoD not the press. Going after to the IG is too late.

He has been trying to get his job back ever since but he has lost all his appeals. In his final and current appeal he is saying he was treated harshly because he was a whisleblower. The last information that was made public was Sept 2019. It could be what the Horowitz report could touch on but I doubt it. This sounds more like what Durham would be looking into. I think the Horowitz report has more to do with the ONA and their business practises. The Senate Oversight committee was looking into it just this last July 2019 to see if they had acted on recommendations the IG had made about the records they keep.

Gotta love people who swallowed the 'muh, Russia' hoax calling out others. :lol:
are you still somehow believing Russia did not hack DNC servers, that 12 Russian agents were not indicted by a grand jury on evidence collected by Mueller, that all 17 of our military-intelligence agencies all said Russia was the media trollers, the hackers, the wikileaks distributors, all at the behest of Putin, so his little bitch Trump might be elected? THAT UKRAINE SOMEHOW FAKED EVERYBODY OUT??? SERIOUSLY??

you are actually denying Putin ordered Russian interference?

i have some cancer causing windmills I would like to sell to you....
