From the original CTH article:
“There are about two dozen check-references to identify who the ‘source’ was in providing the underlying intelligence to CIA Director John Brennan; who then wrote the “EC” for the FBI; which started the 2016 Counterintelligence Operation.
Stefan Halper checks off every single box: √Currently overseas. √Current/Former CIA operative. √Current/Former source for FBI. √Anti-Trump motive. √Formerly put together this exact type of operation. √Connections to UK spies/intel community/politicians. √Connection to Australian spies/intel community. √Connection to Alexander Downer. √Political operative. √Wanted Clinton to win 2016 election. √Connects to Carter Page. √Connects to George Papadopoulos. √Connects to John Brennan. ETC.”
All of this speculation is “above my pay grade”…Sundance linked to several articles for deeper info:
There are numerous references to timeframes around July 2016, when the FISA court abuses & spying on Trump “began”. There are also many players & tentacles articulated within the complex DC tale…
There is a detailed retelling of Halper’s lengthy resume in the above link including work in several Administrations; connections to the CIA, banking, foreign affairs, education, & communications (newspaper, radio, & TV); & he was experienced in digging up political dirt on opponents of his clients/chosen candidates.
That twitter link includes numerous comments & responses to this topic of Strzok in London August 2016…
The above link contains details on Pappadopoulos’ “drunken” conversation with Downer claiming that Russia apparently had Hillary’s emails. The Daily Caller article above stated that this info was given to P by Joseph Mifsud in April 2016.
In the small circular world of professional spooks, Hakluyt has ties with three unexpected individuals:
- Australian diplomat Alexander Downer.
- Stefan Halper, a former policy advisor to Nixon, Ford and Reagan.
- George Papadopoulos
Alexander Downer famously met with George Papadopoulos at a London Bar in May 2016. This meeting would be used by the FBI as their excuse behind opening the July 2016 Counterintelligence Investigation.
Note: The FBI didn’t bother to interview Papadopoulos until January 27, 2017. The conversation in question took place in May 2016. The FBI knew of this conversation no later than July 2016…
An Israeli official, who Papadopoulos knew, introduced him to another Australian diplomat who introduced Papadopoulos to Downer. There’s more to this story.
As previously noted, Alexander Downer has long-standing ties to the Clinton Foundation.
Downer personally arranged one of the largest foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation– $25 million from the Australian government.
Less known is that Downer was on the Advisory Board of Hakluyt (the private UK intelligence firm) from 2008-2014.”
There are even links to Obama through certain people discussed in the above article…
There are connections between Halper & Carter Page articulated in the above article too…(one needs a spreadsheet to keep track of all the tentacles!)…
“Papadopoulos speculated to the Daily Caller that the Downer/Halper meetings may have been a spy operation.
Connections with Richard Dearlove – the former MI6 Head – keep turning up. He appears to be the one constant in the overseas connections. As far as I can tell, he knows every single player.”
“Dr. Stefan Halper – Cambridge Fellow. Senior Policy Advisor to Presidents Nixon, Ford & Reagan. Halper met w/Papadopoulos on 9-13-16 and senior Trump Campaign official on 9-11-16. Invited Carter Page to 7-16-16 Cambridge symposium. Halper reportedly brought up subject of Russian hacking of Clinton emails. In November 2016, Halper stated that Clinton would be best for U.S.-UK relations.”
THE FOLLOWING LINKS WERE REFERENCED IN THE ABOVE DEARLOVE ARTICLE…
There is A Lot of detail at the above link, some WikiLeaks docs, source material for many points presented, some financial connections to spying affiliates, etc. This could be a goldmine for the right person….
This above Thread gives more details on the Hakluyt organization…
Above the link provides some analysis of the significance of some of the findings of the House Intelligence Committee’s Report, details about the Clinton/Steele Dossier, outlines of some behavior by some Swamp Rats, like Comey & Clapper, etc…
“…every single assertion in Clapper’s statement is factually incorrect.
The Intelligence Community:
knew of the Dossier from the start.
helped in the Dossier’s creation.
directly leaked information – including Clapper himself.
relied on the Dossier in obtaining the FISA Warrant.
relied on the Dossier – at least in part – in the IC Assessment Report.
repeatedly lied about doing so.
actively colluded against the Trump Administration.”
…also from the above article…
“The FISA Warrant provided retroactive cover for opening the July 2016 FBI Investigation and the illegal Section 702 searches.
Brennan and Clapper then used the Intelligence Community Assessments to push the Russian Narrative so prevalent in 2017.
Concurrently, information from the illegal Section 702 “About” queries was disseminated into intelligence channels and leaked to the media.
I suspect that we will uncover some meaningful ties between the British, the DNC and the Hillary Campaign.
Obama Administration officials and State Department officials were involved as well.
Again, this is the broadest of descriptions. Actual details appear endless. Many more connections will be uncovered.”
In the above article, the author re-examines the historical media record with a “hindsight is 20/20” perspective to help the DC Darkness come into the light…
The fabrication article author strongly encourages us to read the CNN post above with the benefit of hindsight…
Well, I’m going to leave this post as is now since I’m still reading the “Media Collusion” article above. I hope sharing this info in one place might be helpful to someone, if so, please drop me a line…Blessings!
Please see Sundance’s original article at the Conservative TreeHouse for greater insight & details. My contribution here is primarily to quote from some of his referenced source material to help clarify the background & picture just a little bit…
