Obama Admin Paid Over $1 Million to FBI Informant who Spied on Trump Aide After Election

Longtime Deep State operative and Cambridge professor, Stefan Halper, was paid more than $1 million by the Obama administration starting in 2012 for various “research projects” according to public record. 73-year-old Halper has been a longtime asset for the CIA and FBI and once reportedly ran a spy-operation on the Jimmy Carter administration. He was linked to the Bush dynasty and even set up Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

Not only did Halper receive a total of $1,058,161 from the DOD between 2012 and 2018, but records indicate that he got paid more than $400,000 in taxpayer money at the exact moment in September 2016 when the Hillary Clinton campaign was going for broke with the “Russia collusion” fabrication based on wiretaps of Carter Page

Cambridge professor, Stefan Halper, who once reportedly ran a spy-operation on the Jimmy Carter administration, earned a total of $1,058,161 from the DOD for four annual contracts signed under the Obama admin.

As it just so happens, these contracts correspond with the two of the four targets of the FBI’s Operation Crossfire Hurricane, when the agency sent counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok to a London meeting in the Summer of 2016 where Papadopoulos drunkenly admitted knowing that the Russians possessed Hillary Clinton’s emails, according to former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer who claims to have heard the admission.
Halper’s contracts were funded through four annual awards paid directly out of the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA). Established as the DoD’s “internal think tank” in 1973 by Richard Nixon (whose administration Halper worked for), the ONA was run by foreign policy strategist Andrew Marshall from its inception until his 2015 retirement at the age of 93, after which he was succeeded by current director James H. Baker.

Halper’s most recent award was noted recently by Trump supporter Jacob Wohl, which piqued the interest of internet researchers who continued the analysis.

According to the Website USASPENDING.gov, the payments to Halper are for “RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES (2012),” “RESEARCH AND STUDIES – THE YEAR 2030, (2014)”, “RUSSIA-CHINA RELATIONSHIP STUDY. (2015),” and “INDIA AND CHINA ECON STUDY (2016).”

The most recent award to Halper for $411,575 was made in two payments, and had a start date of September 26, 2016 – three days after a September 23 Yahoo! News article by Michael Isikoff about Trump aide Carter Page, which used information fed to Isikoff by “pissgate” dossier creator Christopher Steele. The FBI would use the Yahoo! article along with the unverified “pissgate” dossier as supporting evidence in an FISA warrant application for Page.

Halper approached Page during an election-themed conference at Cambridge on July 11, 2016, six weeks after the September 26 DoD award start date. The two would stay in contact for the next 14 months, frequently meeting and exchanging emails.
He said that he first encountered the informant during a conference in mid-July of 2016 and that they stayed in touch. The two later met several times in the Washington area. Mr. Page said their interactions were benign. –New York Times
And as the Daily Caller reports, Halper used a decades-old association with Paul Manafort to break the ice with Page.

Page noted that in their first conversation at Cambridge, Halper said he was longtime friends with then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort. A person close to Manafort told TheDCNF that Manafort has not seen Halper since the Gerald Ford administration. Manafort and Page are accused in the Steele dossier of having worked together on the campaign’s collusion conspiracy, but both men say they have never met. –Daily Caller
Spying on Page after the election…

The second installment of Halper’s 2016 DoD contract is dated July 26, 2017 in the amount of $129,280 – around three months before the FISA warrant on Carter Page was set to expire following repeated renewals signed by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and a federal judge.

On July 28, he emailed Page with what the Trump campaign aide describes as a “cordial” communication, which did not seem suspicious to him at the time.

In the email to Page, Halper asks what his plans are post-election, possibly probing for more information. “It seems attention has shifted a bit from the ‘collusion’ investigation to the ‘ contretempts’ [sic] within the White House and, how–or if–Mr. Scaramucci will be accommodated there,” Halper wrote.
con·tre·temps
1. An unforeseen event that disrupts the normal course of things; an inopportune occurrence.
2. An argument or dispute: “another France-versus-England contretemps” (Rob Hughes).
The email to Page was sent on the same day former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci reportedly went on a “vulgar tirade” against then-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Perhaps sensing an opportunity to find out if Page was still “on the inside,” Halper may have reached out to find out what he knew.

Halper then invites Page to his Virginia farm, telling the former Trump adviser “Be in touch when you have the time. Would be great to catch up.”
