Trump Campaign Mole Had One Question

Halper wasn’t there to find out about illegal Russian influence. He was there to find out if Trump had Hillary’s emails.

The cat is out of the bag.  The FBI did actually have a mole working with the Trump campaign.  Cambridge professor Stefan Halper was hired by the FBI and paid nearly half a million dollars by the DoD’s secretive Office of Net Assessment to gain the confidence of Trump campaign officials and inform on them to the FBI.  But the questions Halper asked had nothing to do with Russian collusion.  They wanted to know one thing: did the Trump campaign have Hillary’s emails.

According to reports, Halper asked George Papadopoulos and Carter Page if the Trump campaign had gotten Hillary Clinton’s emails from the Russians.  He wasn’t concerned about collusion, but rather if the Trump campaign had received those emails and was holding on to them for the opportune moment.  If the Trump campaign had those emails, it could spell doom for Clinton, the Obama administration, and the FBI.

Obama’s FBI had exonerated Hillary Clinton before they even began their investigation.  As part of the immunity deal with Clinton’s attorneys, they allowed for the destruction of evidence that might have established a timeline of when and how her emails were deleted.  Obama himself and other Obama administration officials like Loretta Lynch had emailed Hillary under pseudonyms.  The discovery of Hillary’s emails could be detrimental to the entire power base of the Democrat party.  Obama had just as much reason as Hillary to find out if Trump had them.  So that was Halper’s mission.

This wouldn’t be the first election espionage mission for Halper.  In 1980, Halper worked as a mole in the Carter administration, leaking foreign policy intel to the Reagan campaign under George H.W. Bush’s direction.  He was part of a group in the CIA who helped Reagan anticipate Carter’s foreign policy positions during an election year.  The scandal came to light a couple years later, but was quickly forgotten.  Halper also had connections with MI-6, the British spy agency that Christopher Steele used to work for.

The Bush’s have been against Trump from the start.  Stefan Halper was their former spy.  Even working for the Obama’s to help save Hillary, he was the perfect man for the job.

For those keeping score at home, this is another instance where Trump was proven right.  He said the FBI was tapping his phone.  After much ridicule, the FBI admitted that they were surveilling the phone lines at Trump tower.  Trump said the FBI used the phony Steele dossier to start the Russian investigation. The House investigation determined that in fact the dossier, which was paid for by the Clinton campaign, had been used to secure FISA warrants to spy on Trump.  Trump as recently as last week suggested there was an FBI informant working his campaign officials.  After being ridiculed again by the media and relentlessly fact-checked, the truth has come out and he was right again.

But the scariest thing is that Halper wasn’t investigating Trump or Russia, as former CIA director Brennan suggested.  Halper wasn’t there to find out about illegal Russian influence.  He was there to let the Obama administration and Hillary campaign know if there was going to be an October surprise.  His mission was to find out if Trump had Hillary’s emails.

The Russian Fiction

Let’s not bicker and argue about who hacked who

Obama complained for months about the Russians tampering with the US election to get Trump elected.  Apparently for all of Trump’s lack of political experience and his apparent intention to start World War III the first time he loses his temper, he is also somehow irresistible to the Russians.  It has nothing to do with Trump’s desire to sell the American uranium industry to the Russians, Hillary already did that.

For some unexplainable reason, Russia is willing to start a cyber war to install Trump.  So much so that they “hacked the election”.  They literally caused you to vote for Trump. The Russians worked intentionally to aide Trump.  I’m not even sure if we can call this America anymore or if we are just a puppet of Russia.  And of course, if Trump doesn’t denounce Russia and concede this sham election, he should be hung for treason, right?

Back to reality.

What does the media mean when they say Russia hacked the election?  Russia did not tamper with voting machines.  Russia did not funnel fake news to the mainstream media who then dutifully reported it.  In fact, the last major example we have of that was when the CIA told the President who told the media that Iraq had stockpiles of WMDs.  Russia did not get into your computer and use subliminal messages to make you feel like voting for Trump.  None of that happened.

In fact, it’s not clear that this was a Russian national effort.  Apparently the CIA has identified some Russian officials (unnamed) who might be involved.  But there’s another wrinkle.  The CIA might not even know what they are talking about.

The “hack” of the election wasn’t a hack of the election at all.  It was a hack of the DNC servers.  To be clear, no one invented the Podesta emails.  No one modified them.  Whoever the hackers are, whether Wikileaks who took responsibility for it or Russian officials according to the CIA, all they did was publish real, actual emails written by real, actual Democrat staffers.

According to the CIA, the hackers hit the GOP and DNC, but only released the DNC emails. The FBI disputes that, saying the GOP servers were never hacked.  If the GOP servers were never breached, that eliminates the CIA argument that the Russians were trying to hurt just the DNC.  In fact, the argument was flimsy to begin with.  It’s possible they hacked the GOP and just didn’t find anything incriminating.

So did Trump really win simply because Russia hacked the DNC?  Did people walk into the voting booth thinking to themselves “Gosh, I just can’t vote for a party that let’s their servers get hacked by the Russians”.  It seems like Hillary Clinton’s loss had a little bit more to do with what was on those emails.  Contained in the Podesta emails was evidence of media manipulation, CNN sending debate questions to Hillary ahead of time, racism within the party, Hillary’s health issues, and of all things proof that Team Hillary not only rigged the DNC primary, but also promoted Trump in the GOP primary because they thought they could beat him.

Just to make sure the reader caught that: Hillary Clinton and her team rigged both party’s primaries in 2016.

Problem emails didn’t just come from Wikileaks.  Team Hillary also got in trouble with the emails released by the FBI from her illegal server, and the undercover video of Scott Foval and others by Project Veritas.  Those two sources showed how the DNC bussed people across state lines to vote illegally, and even paid homeless people to go into Trump rallies and cause violence.  One would think the CIA might be interested in that.  At least one might think that had more to do with Hillary’s loss.

Calling on the Russians to hack and rig an election is nothing shockingly new.  Ted Kennedy did it in 1984 to try to get rid of Reagan. But the Russians didn’t decide the US election in 2016. If they are truly involved, all they did was shed light on the treacherous, terrible, racist, and illegal things the DNC was already doing to hack the election.

Maybe we should send them a thank you card.
