'Since news emerged that evidence now points to a “mole” who infiltrated the Trump campaign, conservative media outlets have been bursting with suppositions and theories. If, in fact, there was someone working inside the campaign in league with U.S. government actors — as posited by Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal, — then this would signify that the reason for the Russian Collusion investigation was not George Papadopoulos, and his drunken ramblings as the FBI have previously indicated. It would imply that government agencies were working to bring down Mr. Trump.
The name that keeps popping up regarding the mole’s identity is one, Stefan Halper, as floated here, here, here and here. These various outlets say Mr. Halper was able to effortlessly fit into this role due to his connections, access, and support structure. But perhaps more significant than the identity of this mole is how this clandestine operation functioned in a way that was then designed to bring down a presidential candidate and now the president of the United States.
THE MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Stefan Halper is an entrenched and well-connected Swamp-dweller. Foreign policy scholar and author, Mr. Halper also served in a variety of capacities for the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. This is primarily because he fits the criteria laid out by the response to Devin Nunes’ request for information: “a top-secret government source, who has worked for the FBI and the CIA, who is a U.S. citizen, has entanglements with foreign intelligence agencies based overseas.”
But the question is if Mr. Halper is a fly in the ointment, how did he (or his handlers) know who to target and by what methods to link then-candidate Trump to the Russians? The most straightforward answer — and the one that is most insidious — is that Halper was working in tandem with private spy-for-hire companies to set up a series of operations that would bring about the appearance that the Trump campaign was working hand in hand with Russia to influence the U.S. election.'
