Even before the first Republican primary, a London-to-Langley spy ring had begun to form against Donald Trump. British spies sent to CIA director John Brennan in late 2015 alleged intelligence on contacts between Trumpworld and the Russians, according to the Guardian.

...

It appears that Halper had won Brennan’s confidence with a false report about Flynn in 2014 — a reported sighting of Flynn at Cambridge University talking too cozily with a Russian historian. Halper had passed this absurdly simpleminded tattle to a British spy who in turn gave it to Brennan, as one can deduce from this euphemistic account in the New York Times about Halper as the “informant”:

...

"According to people familiar with Mr. Flynn’s visit to the intelligence seminar, the source was alarmed by the general’s apparent closeness with a Russian woman who was also in attendance. The concern was strong enough that it prompted another person to pass on a warning to the American authorities that Mr. Flynn could be compromised by Russian intelligence, according to two people familiar with the matter."

Again, that’s early 2014 and a file on Flynn is already sitting on Brennan’s desk. In 2015, as word of Flynn’s interest in the Trump campaign spreads, the London-to-Langley spy ring fattens the file with more alarmist dreck — that Flynn had gone to a Russian Television gala and so forth. By February 2016, when it is reported that he has joined the Trump campaign as an adviser, the spy ring moves into more concerted action.

...

The stench of entrapment that hangs over this part of the story is unmistakable, and the spy ring’s treatment of Papadopoulos looks flat out cruel. Every figure who plays a key role in tripping him up — Mifsud, the Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, and Stefan Halper — has ties to British intelligence.

...

This unnamed former British intelligence officer adopts a very knowing, almost proprietary, tone, as if to acknowledge that the spying on the Trump campaign was a British-American venture from the start. Ignatius writes, “A former British intelligence officer who knows Halper well describes him as ‘an intensely loyal and trusted U.S. citizen [who was] asked by the Bureau to look into some disconcerting contacts’ between Russians and Americans.”

“Intensely loyal and trusted,” “asked by the Bureau” — how would he know? These are the insiderish phrases of a handler or fellow member of the ring.

...

What started in late 2015 with promise ended in panic, with British sources for the alleged Trump-Russia collusion going silent or mysteriously disappearing. A few days after Trump’s inauguration, the director of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, abruptly resigned, prompting the Guardian to wonder if the sudden resignation was related to “British concerns over shared intelligence with the US.” All of this raises plenty of questions, but one conclusion about this epic fiasco requires no spying: the fingerprints of the British are all over it.

This article shows how UK intelligence was crucial in the intial spying of Trumps team.

Remember, we have been told by the FBI that the investigation of Trump started on July 31 , 2016 as a result of the Australian diplomat (hillary friend) telling the FBI that George Papadopoulos drunkenly told him a russian had dirt in the form of emails on Hillary.

It appears that the investigation into trump connected people started well before this. Look for the MSM and FBI to admit that this date that they gave for the start of the investigation is wrong, but make it out like its not a big deal.

Remember, if there was any spying on trumps team before this date, it means the entire MSM and intel communities claim that the Papadopoulos story was the reason for the investigation is a lie.

It appears that the UK intel agencies were in fact working with Brennan and his CIA to spy on trump connected people well before that date.

I will get into more specifics in the next few posts, but the implications of US intel working with UK intel to spy on trumps campaign is deeply troubling, and a real example of foreign election interfernce that should be investigated.

It really is not that shocking at all, the 5 eyes Orwellian system of control was designed to do this... to bad for them they have lost control.

So basically a spy ring only informing other members of the spy ring in the IC ...right . Word has it is that Rubio is taking the informant narrative stance . Just a heads up for those voting Republicans . Didn't or wasn't there a story a little while back about more or a push to get CIA agents on some political ballots ? All concerned voters should take note .

It appears the earliest known collaboration between the London and Langley was CIA and FBI spy Stefan Halper (yes the same Halper that the FBI asked and paid to spy on Trumps team) told Brennan in 2014 that Flynn spoke at his university and seemed cozy with a russian professor.

Lets see how credible these accusations were.


Halper’s claim in December 2016 that Russians infiltrated CIS has also been called “absurd” by Christopher Andrew, the official historian for MI5 and head of CIS, the Financial Times reported.

...

Flynn’s interactions with Lokhova were reported to American authorities and Flynn should have notified the Defense Intelligence Agency about his contacts with a Russian national, according to The Journal’s news story.

The agency’s liaison in London, Dan O’Brien, dismissed the idea that Flynn should have reported his contact with Lokhova. O’Brien, who attended the February 2014 dinner, said “nothing rose to the level” of requiring such a disclosure.

According to The Journal, Flynn sat next to Lokhova at the CIS dinner. At one point, she showed Flynn an “erotic postcard” from 1912 of a young woman with Joseph Stalin. Flynn also mentioned hiring Lokhova as his translator for a trip to Russia he planned to make. He and Lokhova remained in email contact for a short time after the Cambridge event.

There was no evidence presented that Flynn or Lokhova did anything wrong other than arouse suspicions from a dinner attendee now known to be Halper.

So halper, who apparently see russians under his bed at night, thinks that the school he worked at was infested with russians, something that those that ran the scholl said was absudrd.

His big evidence that Flynn was compromised? Flynn sat next to a british citizen that was born in russia and was a professor at the school for a school dinner.

Oh and the Defense Inteligence Agency that Halper felt flynn should have reported his contacts with that woman at dinner? Well there London liason that Flynn is claimed to have reported to was actually at the same dinner, and said there was nothing going on at all that warranted reporting.

Nonetheless, there it was, Brennan now had a file on Flynns shady dealings with russians.

This then made the next claims by UK intelligence more desirable.

You wont believe this! Flynn went to a public dinner for RT tv. Yep, the same dinner that was public, and had people like Jill stein there.

How incredible is it that Brennan, that clearly hated trump and still does wth a passion, is collaborating with UK intel to get details about Flynn attending a public event fro RT tv?

Now remember, we were told that no one was spying on flynn when his call to kislyak, which was perfectly legitimate, was recorded. Yet we now know that was a lie. SO how can we be certain that Flynn wasnt the one whos call was being monitored, and not kislyak (or maybe both).

The point is, the UK intel and Brennans cia were collaborating to spy on flynn, an american citizen and armed forces member, based on him having two public dinners.

In addition to this, the article describes how it appears fishy that the writer for the washington post is describing a british intel officer claiming that he knew Halper was " ‘an intensely loyal and trusted U.S. citizen [who was] asked by the Bureau to look into some disconcerting contacts’ between Russians and Americans.”

How would a uk intel officer know what the FBI tasked Halper with? Well as we are now finding out, it appears Birtish intelligence was working with Brennan (and hence would probably have known details about Comeys fbi) to spy on trump people.

Foriegn spies were helping US intel agencies to spy on trump connected people, well before the supposed date that the US intel opened their investigation into the trump team.

And then as the article ends, it mentions that the head of the GCHQ (the intel agency of the UK) resigned shortly after trumps inauguration.


A few days after Trump’s inauguration, the director of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, abruptly resigned, prompting the Guardian to wonder if the sudden resignation was related to “British concerns over shared intelligence with the US.”


I bet he had concerns over British and US shared intel.

It may have been quite awkward for mr. Hannigan to have to explain to trump why he was helping brennan and comey spy on his team.

I predict that we will find Trump Tower was in fact wiretapped, and all phone calls were recorded. Once that happens, they will try to play it off as "the way these things happen", but it won't work.

Before they switched gears saying it did not happen all the MSM outlets were reporting Trump Towers WAS being spied on and that a server was the target. It was used as propaganda to show Trump was guilty of something.

That could be true.

I will predict that we are going to find out that the FBI and cia actually staring investigating and spying on trumps team before the July 31, 2016 date they claimed.

And I also predict that when that happens, the anti trumpers will say that is perfectly fine, proving once more that they dont care about the intel community lying and being corrupt, as long as trump is their target.

Trump and his associates were caught in European surveillance on Russian criminals in late 2015. They were not spying on them ,this whole spygate is a conspiracy started by Donald to reflect away from reality that shows the truth

Well, that's an entirely new argument.

Can't say that it holds any water however.

Given the topic, a reply of mine that could be pertinent here:

Interesting article out today about how much the US IC actually knew long before Chris Steel's dossier showed up.



Let me put my cards on the table: The counterintelligence investigation of Donald Trump was kicked off by not one, not two, but multiple SIGINT reports which set off alarm bells inside our Intelligence Community. This has been publicly known, in a general way, for some time. A little over a year ago, the Guardian reported, based on multiple intelligence sources, that the lead was taken by Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ – Britain’s NSA), which “first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious ‘interactions’ between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the U.S. as part of a routine exchange of information.”




The official went on: “We had several reports in late 2015 and early 2016, mostly from Second and Third Party”—that being spy-speak for NSA’s foreign friends—“but by the spring of 2016 we had plenty of our own collection.” These reports, based on multiple intercepts, were tightly compartmented, that is, restricted to a small group of counterintelligence officials, given their obvious sensitivity, but they painted an indelible picture of a compromised GOP nominee. “The Kremlin talked about Trump like he was their boy, and their comments weren’t always flattering.”




In response to urgent FBI requests for more information, NSA rose to the occasion, and by the time that Donald Trump officially accepted the Republican nomination in mid-July 2016, “We knew we had a Russian agent on our hands,” as a senior NSA official put it to me recently



“Trump and his kids knew what they were doing, and who they were doing it with,” the official explained.



Here’s How the FBI Investigation Into Russia and Trump Campaign Actually Started


Within that article there is a link to show that the Russians were compromised by a US ally Dutch Report Reveals Obama Administration Knew About Russian Hacking in Real Time, which does raise the question of why Obama apparently did little to counter the threat. Or if he did announce Russian interference would Trump accuse Obama of interfering with the election.

Can't wait for the truth to emerge one way or the other.

Aint no way in any direction they (tptb) can get themselves out of this mess . I had said early on in this that Comey needed to take one for the team but no he just kept digging . Now it looks like they (tptb) want to throw him under the bus ...TOO little TOO late ... He will take them all down with him
