President Trump has dropped a bombshell just one day after ordering the DOJ to begin an investigation into apparently dodgy dealings conducted by the DOJ and the FBI. He has publically voiced his worries tht the Clinton election team put a spy into his campaign.
Late yesterday he tweeted:
“If the person placed very early into my campaign wasn’t a SPY put there by the previous Administration for political purposes, how come such a seemingly massive amount of money was paid for services rendered – many times higher than normal…
…Follow the money! The spy was there early in the campaign and yet never reported Collusion with Russia because there was no Collusion. He was only there to spy for political reasons and to help Crooked Hillary win – just like they did to Bernie Sanders, who got duped!”
His point about there being an operative is valid. We know that Stefan Halper, Professor Mifsud, and Australian ambassador Alexander Downer all had high-level contacts with spy-for hire groups and intelligence services, and we know that they worked with George Papadopoulos and Carter Page to make connections with the Trump campaign.
If they had witnessed any evidence of Russian Collusion, why dod they not report it to the authorities? And the money trail is always the thing to follow. Who is paying? Who authorized the payment? And more importantly, why are spy-for-hire companies being paid by the Clinton campaign in the first place?
Trump is right. If this is true, it is illegal and unprecedented.
