The Obama administration sent in the goons to spy on the Trump campaign as a safety net in case the improbable happened and Trump won.
There are other theories floating around out there about how this scandal happened but the easiest way to find answers is to follow the money.
The money always tells the right tale and this one is bad for Barack Obama.
Because they paid the spy…he wasn’t some concerned informant as the media wants you to believe.
He was on the payroll and when you are on the payroll you are expected to deliver or you won’ t be on the payroll for long.
From Zero Hedge:
Less than a week after Stefan Halper was outed as the FBI informant who infiltrated the Trump campaign, public records reveal that the 73-year-old Oxford University professor and former U.S. government official was paid handsomely by the Obama administration starting in 2012 for various research projects.
A longtime CIA and FBI asset who once reportedly ran a spy-operation on the Jimmy Carter administration, Halper was enlisted by the FBI to spy on several Trump campaign aides during the 2016 U.S. election. Meanwhile, a search of public records reveals that between 2012 and 2018, Halper received a total of $1,058,161 from the Department of Defense.
Halper’s contracts were funded through four annual awards paid directly out of the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA). Established as the DoD’s “internal think tank” in 1973 by Richard Nixon (whose administration Halper worked for), the ONA was run by foreign policy strategist Andrew Marshall from its inception until his 2015 retirement at the age of 93, after which he was succeeded by current director James H. Baker.
Based on Mueller’s witch hunt it looks like Obama and the deep state got their money’s worth.
