A bombshell report that was ignored by the Trump-hating “mainstream” media (MSM) recently noted that a top FBI official told congressional investigators last fall that the bureau had some contacts within the 2016 Trump campaign who were linked to operation “Crossfire Hurricane.”
As reported by The Epoch Times, the contact was not identified by name but it sounds like he very likely was FBI “informant” Stefan Halper, a one-time Oxford University professor who was paid over $1 million by the Obama-run Defense Department between 2012 and 2018, nearly half of which was handed out during the 2016 campaign cycle.
According to portions of the transcript published exclusively by the news site, the FBI official who provided a deposition to congressional investigators, Trisha Anderson, said the bureau relied on sources who “already had campaign contacts” so it could put Team Trump under surveillance.
“To my knowledge, the FBI did not place anybody within a campaign but, rather, relied upon its network of sources, some of whom already had campaign contacts, including the source that has been discussed in the media at some length beyond Christopher Steele,” said Anderson — No. 2 attorney at the FBI’s Office of General Counsel at the time and who was extensively involved in the bureau’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.
