FAST FIVE: FBI Official Admits To Infiltrating Trump Campaign – Just Don't Call It Spying
After Bush lost to Reagan, Halper worked as Reagan's Deputy Assistant Secretary of State – where he served under three different Secretaries.
News article by Michael Isikoff about Trump aide Carter Page, which used information fed to Isikoff by “pissgate” dossier creator Christopher Steele. The FBI would use the Yahoo! article along with the unverified “pissgate” dossier as supporting evidence in an FISA warrant application for Page. Halper approached Page during an election-themed conference at Cambridge on July 11, 2016, six weeks after the September 26 DoD award start date. The two would stay in contact for the next 14 months, frequently meeting and exchanging emails.
He said that he first encountered the informant during a conference in mid-July of 2016 and that they stayed in touch.
According to Papadopoulos in an interview with Dan Bongino, Halper angrily accused him of working with Russia before storming out of a meeting. Halper essentially began interrogating Papadopoulos, saying that it's “obviously in your interest to be working with the Russians” and to “hack emails.” “You're complicit with Russia in this, isn't that right George” Halper told him.
