In one of the most stunning revelations of 2018, President Trump has rightfully declared actions taken by former President Barack Obama as “bigger than Watergate”…and we are only now beginning to see the forest for the trees in this situation.
During the tumultuous election of 2016, soon-to-be President Donald Trump was assailed by democratic diva Hillary Clinton on the subject of Russia starting in September – just two months prior to the big day. These assertions seemed to come out of left field for the desperate former Secretary of State, who was battling a number of damaging leaks from within her own campaign and steadily slipping in the polls.
The #RussiaGate movement was born, and it took only a few weeks for Clinton and her cronies to transform their theory into a wild conspiracy-laden fairy tale that purported, in no uncertain terms, that Donald Trump was somehow being controlled and assisted by the Russian government.
It sounds crazy because it is.

Then, after Clinton was ultimately embarrassed in the election itself, the theory was galvanized by the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of anti-Trump twerps, who are still to this day attempting to catch the President having done something, anything that they can punish him for. In the midst of this nonsense, however, a peculiar fact has been unearthed: Barack Obama’s FBI had planted an informant within the Trump campaign for the presumed purpose of keeping Hillary Clinton abreast of the team’s strategy.
Through clever citizen sleuthing, it has been all but confirmed that this mole was Stefan Halper, and only now are we finding out what his information was worth to the democrats.
Spoiler alert: It’s a whole lot of dollars.
Public records show Stefan Halper, the foreign policy expert “outed,” as an FBI informant that spied on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, was paid a large sum in 2016 for work he did for the Obama administration.
The Department of Defense paid Halper $282,295 on September 27, 2016 — just months before the 2016 presidential election — for work titled, “INDIA AND CHINA ECON STUDY,” says USASPENDING.gov, a website that tracks spending data for the U.S. government. This sum was one of two payments made to Halper for the job; the second, worth $129,280, was made on July 26, 2017. The record lists Halper’s “Period of Performance” as September 26, 2016 to March 29, 2018.
USASPENDING.gov shows the Department of Defense paid Halper a total of $1,058,161 for work between 2012-2018. The work designated for “India-China” study comprised nearly 40 percent of that compensation.
The contents of the work listed above are presently unknown.
The sheer filthiness of it all has me running for the hand sanitizer.
Halper, along with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, represent the worst of our electoral republic, and demonstrate that there is a very real need for election reform in our nation.
Furthermore, as long as the President keeps his word, we could see Halper and Obama sharing a jail cell awfully soon.
