Itís Time for Stefan Halperís Actions to Be Fully Exposed
epoch times ^ | 8/19/2019 | BRIAN CATES

Shortly after Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn joined the presidential campaign of Donald Trump in February of 2016, someone began contacting reporters spinning a tale about having seen General Flynn being courted by a female Russian spy. This person alleged to several media reporters that he suspected Flynn had been successfully compromised by the Putin government.

Sveltana Lokhova is a lecturer and author at Cambridge who specializes in Soviet intelligence studies who ended up being dragged against her will into the center of one of the biggest political scandals of all time.

The person responsible for dragging Lokhova into the middle of this scandal is Professor Stefan Halper, once a fellow academic at Cambridge, now retired.

Unlike with Professor Joseph Mifsud, where strident denials are made that he was working for the FBI to entrap Trump campaign personnel, there’s no question that Halper is a Western intelligence asset.

In fact, Halper was so much of a Western intelligence asset that a whistleblower received retaliation for questioning his seemingly over-generous contracts with the US government.

According to multiple news reports for which we now know Halper was an anonymous source, Flynn attended an intelligence conference in London in 2014 where Lokhova and Halper were also present. That conference was followed by a private dinner, which—and this is going to be important to remember—Flynn, Lokhova, Sir Richard Dearlove (former head of MI6) and Dan O’Brien (Defense Intelligence Agency [DIA] UK liaison) all attended, but Halper did not. It’s important to stress this—Halper was not present at this dinner.

Halper’s story is that he suspected his fellow Cambridge academic was a Russian agent and so he was “alarmed” at hearing from others about her supposed interactions with Flynn at this private dinner.

I really enjoyed reading Brian Cates on Twitter and “stealth jeff”” but, when Sessions was out and it was apparent that he had done nothing....Brian lost his luster with me. I do not discredit anything he writes in this article....and I hope it will all happen....but Brian has an ability to project too far with the little information that he/we have. I hope it will be different this time, but it is discouraging considering his history of assuming too much.

After reviewing the article, I looked up Stefan Halper. Wikipedia (of course) gave him cover by stating that he was the subject (and victim) of President Trump’s Russian interference “conspiracy theory.” Wiki said that there was “no evidence” supporting President Trump’s position.

Typical Wikipedia leftist stuff. Like others on FR, I hope that someone is prosecuted this time, but find it unlikely in light of the history so far.

If this account is true, Harper relationship to the CIA or FBI will soon be known.

Unless the judge throws out the $25,000,000 or that idiot Chris Wray slips him the money under the table to keep his mouth shut.

Have Lokhova’s atty’s filed an answer to Halper’s motion to dismiss? That might make some fun reading.

Halper and Mifsud should be arrested and subjected to harsh questioning.

The Response to the Introductory Claim No.1 in Lokhova's filing should be interesting. Nothing like a footnoted reference to Donald Segretti.

ptsal — Thanks for pointing this out. For others interested in the Russian Collusion plot: Read Lukhova’s entire Complaint. It is full of details showing Halper’s (and British historian Christopher Andrew’s) involvement in a broad “Russian Collusion” smear campaign. This is far more than just the Page and Papadopoulos stuff most have seen. It also connects Halfer to former Russian spy chief Major General Vladimir I. Trubnikov, supposedly one of Steele’s Russian sources. (Possibly Halper either connected Steele to Russian spies, or gave Steele dirt and pretended it came from the Russians).

There are not enough lampposts in DC to accommodate all who should swing for this. Lukhova’s Complaint is found at:
