(National Sentinel) Highly Irregular: The Obama operation to penetrate the Trump campaign keeps getting more revealing — and bizarre — by the day.
On Wednesday White House trade czar Peter Navarro told Fox Radio‘s Brian Kilmeade that he feels like he was “duped” by the Deep State after he recommended campaign spy and longtime CIA and MI6 asset Stefen Halper for an ambassadorship in the Trump administration.
And that’s what he called Halper — a spy, not an “informant” as though the Obama regime’s operation was legitimate. Navarro doesn’t believe it was.
“I feel duped, yeah, pretty much,” Peter Navarro said. “It’s baffling.”
The Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross noted further:
Halper, a former Cambridge professor with deep ties to the CIA and MI6, approached Navarro in 2017, seeking a nomination to an ambassadorship to an unidentified Asian country, Axios reported on May 21.
At the time he submitted his application for the ambassadorship, Halper was working as an informant for the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. As part of that under cover operation, Halper met with three Trump campaign associates — Carter Page, Sam Clovis and George Papadopoulos.
Halper maintained contact with Page from July 2016 through Sept. 2017, as The Daily Caller News Foundation has reported. He met Clovis once, on Sept. 1, 2016. And Halper paid Papadopoulos $3,000 to write a policy paper that appears to have been cover to arrange a series of meetings in London. Papadopoulos has told associates Halper asked him during dinner one night whether he was involved in Russian attempts to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails.
POTUS Trump — correctly — has dubbed this scandal “Spygate,” though his detractors and critics have been attempting to convince Americans that, no, the FBI wasn’t “spying” but merely doing its job because, you know, The Russians….
Only, there is no evidence to support the initiation of a counterintelligence information, as House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has stressed.
And, as Ross notes, it remains unclear whether Halper’s outreach to Navarro was part of his effort to continue spying on Trump and his administration or a legitimate effort to serve another Republican administration, as he has so often done in the past.
Both Navarro and Halper are considered experts on China.
Navarro told Kilmeade that he submitted a list of 12 names, including Halper’s, to the White House personnel office.
“We were all duped by that and shame on, this kind of thing shouldn’t be happening. It just shouldn’t be happening,” Navarro told Kilmeade, Ross reported.
Navarro was explicit in what he considered Halper to be: A “spy” who infiltrated Trump’s campaign.
“Having spies infiltrate into the Trump campaign. I mean, come on. It’s like that just that shouldn’t take place,” he added.
