Zero Hedge) – Adam Lovinger, a former Defense Department analyst, never expected that what he stumbled on during his final months at the Pentagon would expose an integral player in the FBI’s handling of President Donald Trump’s campaign and alleged Russia collusion.

Lovinger, a whistleblower, is now battling to save his career. The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports, his attorney Sean Bigley said. Before Lovinger’s clearance was suspended he had taken a detail to the National Security Council as senior director for strategy. He was only there for five months before he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped of his prestigious White House detail, and ordered to perform bureaucratic make-work in a Pentagon annex Bigley calls “the land of misfit toys.” His security clearance was eventually revoked in March 2018, despite the Pentagon “refusing to turn over a single page of its purported evidence of Lovinger’s wrongdoing,” Bigley stated. Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, recently filed a federal lawsuit against the Defense Department to obtain the withheld records.

Lovinger also raised concerns about Halper’s role in conducting what appeared to be diplomatic meetings with foreigners on behalf of the U.S. government because his role as contractor forbids him from doing so, according to U.S. federal law.

An investigation by SaraACarter.com reveals that the documents and information Lovinger stumbled on and other documents obtained by this news site, raise troubling questions about Halper, who was believed to have worked with the CIA and part of the matrix of players in the bureau’s ‘CrossFire Hurricane’ investigation into Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.

Halper did not respond to requests for comment.

“When Mr. Lovinger raised concerns about DoD’s misuse of Stefan Halper in 2016, he did so without any political designs or knowledge of Mr. Halper’s spying activities,” Bigley told SaraACarter.com.

“Instead, Mr. Lovinger simply did what all Americans should expect of our civil servants: he reported violations of law and a gross waste of public funds to his superiors.”

And for that, Bigley said, Lovinger has paid the ultimate price in his 12-year career as a strategist in the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment. According to Bigley, shortly after Lovinger began reporting and asking questions about suspicious contracts given to Halper and others, including one person closely associated Chelsea Clinton, his security clearance was suspended. Later, on April 3, 2018, the DoD’s Washington Headquarters Services Director Barbara Westgate sent a letter to Lovinger indefinitely suspending him from duty and pay status after his clearance was removed in March. The letter stated, “The purpose of this memorandum is to notify you that I am proposing to indefinitely suspend you from duty and pay status in your position as a Foreign Affairs Specialist.”

Lovinger, who is married with three children and is the family’s primary breadwinner, has been living off the generosity of family members since his pay was removed.

The retaliation for whistleblowing was something Bigley expected. “So, we weren’t surprised when DoD bureaucrats moved shortly thereafter to strip Mr. Lovinger of both his security clearance and his detail to the National Security Council, where he had been Senior Director for Strategy as a by-name request of the incoming Trump Administration,” said the attorney.

“Yet, we were puzzled by the unprecedented ferocity of efforts to discredit Mr. Lovinger, including leaks from DoD of false and defamatory information to the press,” he said. “Our assumption was that the other contractor about whom Mr. Lovinger explicitly raised concerns – a close confidante of Hillary Clinton – was the reason for the sustained assault on Mr. Lovinger, and that certainly may have played a role.”

Bigley suspects it was more than the Clinton-connected contracts adding, “Mr. Lovinger unwittingly shined a spotlight on the deep state’s secret weapon – Stefan Halper – and threatened to expose the truth about the Trump-Russia collusion narrative than being plotted: that it was all a set-up.”

Halper’s Ties to Russian Officials Raise Serious Questions

Halper has had a long career and worked in government with several GOP administrations. At 73, the elusive professor spent a career developing top-level government connections–not just through academia but also through his work with members of the intelligence apparatus.

Those contacts and the information Halper collected along the way would eventually, through apparent circumstance, become utilized by the FBI against the Trump campaign. But, it was during his time hosting the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar at the University of Cambridge where Halper shifted from a professor and former government consultant to FBI informant on the Trump campaign.

In 2016, Halper was an integral part of the FBI’s investigation into short-term Trump campaign volunteer, Carter Page. Halper first made contact with Page at his seminar in July 2016. Page, who was already on the FBI’s radar, was accused of being sympathetic to Russia and sought better relations between the U.S. and Russian officials. Halper stayed in contact with Page until September 2017.

During that time, the FBI sought and obtained a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to spy on Page and used Halper to collect information on him, according to sources. The House Intelligence Committee Russia report and documents obtained by this outlet revealed that the bulk of the warrant against Page relied heavily on an unverified dossier compiled by Former British Spy Christopher Steele and the matter is still under congressional investigation. Steele, who was a former MI6 agent, also had ties to many of the same people, like former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove, who were part of the seminar.

Flynn was pushed out by Obama and then became a thorn in the side of Obama and the Clintons when he joined the Trump campaign,” said a former senior intelligence source with knowledge of what happened. “The investigation into Trump didn’t start with Carter Page or George Papadapolous, but with Flynn. Flynn was already on the CIA and Clinton target list. Those same people sure as hell didn’t want him in the White House and they sure as hell didn’t want Trump to win.”

Original Post

The whole Russian collusion accusation is the biggest scam ever and is an overt attempt to make up for an election that the Democrats should have won but couldn't.  The problem is that people are so deranged over Trump's election and the media has kept this issue item #1 all along even though there is zero evidence ever such existed.  

Never mind that Obama, himself, said it couldn't have been done (before the election) these people have nothing but "slim to none" to hang their hats on and if the Democrats could work with Trump instead as 100% against Trump can you imagine what possibly could have been done up to this point in time.  It doesn't matter though whatever happens as there will always be a group of people that are 200% sure that it happened.

I wonder where all these Republicans were, screaming about cooperating, 5 years ago. They sure didn't have a problem with the 'do nothing Republicans' for the past administration. Why is that? What changed the opinion of Republicans from 'we're not doing anything' to 'we need to cooperate'? I just can't figure out what caused the big change.

No big change in the ultimate end of things, at least as I see it, just a change in parties that are in control or that do the obstructing and delaying.  Part of that I believe is designed into our own Constitution but not to the degree, or scale, that we see playing out for the last 30 or so years in our Government.  The sad thing is that so many are opposed to things just solely based upon what political party they belong to and cannot seek to find common ground what so ever.  

Gone seems to be the concept of working together for the good of everyone and it's more what can we do for ourselves without giving or sharing credit with our political enemies.

It's nice to see a Republican admit this fact. I witness it daily, on these forums. Most of the Republicans , here, would vote for Russia to take over the US over a Democrat and have no problem admitting it.

Not that I guess it even matters at this point but when describing me I prefer you use "Independent".  I have, in years past, had Democrats that I have voted for but I do have to admit that since the Democrats chose to fool around with healthcare and force that issue on all of us they lost my move entirely and I frankly don't know when, if ever, they will get it back.  This vote alone, the ACA or more like Un-Affordable Care act took more money out of my families pocket than any tax increase or legislation.  They chose to mess around with it to try and appease some of their more fringe voters and as a result, brought about a horrendous situation for my family and myself that is not over yet as I continue to make up for the exponential rise in deductibles.  So if I am a Republican because, of late, I've voted mainly for Republicans or because I supported and voted for Trump then so be it.  I still declare myself to be independent as there are a great many Republicans that I believe are in need of replacement or change.  

I also blame two, supposedly, Republicans for the failure to overturn Obamacare (Democratic Healthcare)  and that is Justice John Roberts who found a way to make it legal rather than unconstitutional as it should have been and also John McCain in his vendetta against Trump who lost sight of the rest of the voters so that he could stiff Trump by being the vote that allowed Obamacare to remain.

 

This Russia Russia Russia thing seems more and more like the "Fix" was in to Frame Trump after Hillary won the 2016 presidential election, only it didn't go her way. The Bias in the Elites of the FBI and DoJ and the Big Media News & late night Comedy Shows feeding on the same DNC Script, looks all too phony to me.

You have to ask yourself:

  • Was there ever any real evidence of "collusion" between Trump and the Russians? ( I don't think so, Just Smoke Screen for a Shadow Government)
  • Did the FBI and DOJ improperly use a discredited "dossier" about Trump to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump associates? (You Bet they did)
  • How did Hillary Clinton manage to escape prosecution despite compelling evidence she violated the law? (Comey gave her a pass before election day on criminal charges, hoping after Hillary was elected they would Frame Trump on their Russia Collusion STORY LINE)
  • Did Peter Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, and others obstruct justice by protecting Clinton? (Yes, they are all cut from the same cloth)

The list goes on and on of unanswered questions of what was going on behind the veil of secrecy.

Talking about Collusion with the Russians!!  Why did Major media turn their heads when Real Collusion w/ Putin's Government obtaining Nuclear,  "Uranium One Deal" the Democrats Cooked Up... How does this Sale of 20% of our Uranium, to Russians, happen? Not much of a Peep from Media.

They truly HATE Trump So Much...Its Looking more like a Third World Country Politics, putting together a "Staged Coup take Over" by Bias Government Democrat Elite Officials, Scheming behind the Scene...

 

List of people/agencies accused of conspiring to frame Trump...
DOJ , FBI, CIA, Australian Intelligence, British Intelligence, 24 other US Intelligence Agencies, some Republicans, Hillary, Obama, Comey, most Media outlets, Trump's Lawyer, Trump's Campaign , Trump's Campaign Manager, Trump's best friend, Beauregard Sessions, Mark Rubio... and more to be named later. 

Russians want the US to distrust its own government and the mechanics of government (elections), not collude.  So far, they seem to be succeeding, with the Democrats serving their usual useful idiot role.  

The globalists don't desire a muslim society, but to break down the old orders of nations in Europe and the US.  Soros' Open Society believes this will initiate a new order that will decrease war and reduce religion as an influence.  Idiots doing the same thing the communists attempted -- did they forget the trail of blood, slaughter and mass graves from the eastern s****s of Asia to central Europe?

The leaders of France and Denmark stated their was no such thing as a real Frenchman or Dane.  Then, why in 1940, did they attempt to repel those immigrants from Germany!
