Former CIA Spy Stefan Halper Had Close Ties to Kremlin

During the presidential campaign in 2016, Barack Obama’s administration paid Stefan Halper to spy on the Trump campaign. Also, the possible collusion with Russia. It was unnecessary as Halper could’ve just asked Russian billionaire Andrey Cheglakov. He has close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Cheglakov financed Halper’s Cambridge seminar… In which Halper invited several Russians to speak at.

How ironic is that? Adam Lovinger, a former Pentagon analyst, was fired when he brought Halper’s contract up to his bosses. The Obama administration set many traps for Trump campaign workers. Who also adamantly refused to break the laws they were set up to be prosecuted for.

Halper, along with Dearlove, left the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar in December 2016, saying they were concerned about Russian influence. Halper had told reporters at the time that it was due to “unacceptable Russian influence.”

Ironically, documents obtained by suggest that Halper also had invited senior Russian intelligence officials to co-teach his course on several occasions and, according to news reports, also accepted money to finance the course from a top Russian oligarch with ties to Putin.

Several course syllabi from 2012 and 2015 obtained by this outlet reveal Hapler had invited and co-taught his course on intelligence with the former Director of Russian Intelligence Gen. Vladimir I. Trubnikov.

On May 4, 2012, the course syllabus states, “Ambassador Vladimir I. Trubnikov will comment on the challenges faced while directing the Foreign Intelligence Service, his tenure as Ambassador to India, President Putin and the likely course of Russia’s relations with Britain and the U.S.”

In May 2015, Trubnikov returned to teach with Halper at his seminar in Cambridge on “current relations between the Russian Federation and the West.” Other notable intelligence experts attended the event in 2015, including Major Gen.Peter Williams, a former British commander of the mission to the Soviet Forces in Germany.

Even more interesting are reports from the British Media outlet, The Financial Times, that state Halper received funds for the Cambridge seminar from Russian billionaire Andrey Cheglakov, who has close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Cheglakov also funded Veruscript in 2016, which raised the suspicion of Dearlove and those connected to the seminar. Veruscript, a publisher for a Russian academic journal, was suspected by MI6 of being a front for Russian intelligence. Kent also happened to be the editor and chief of the journal. He published the inaugural article in the journal “The Journal of Intelligence and Terrorism”  blaming the West for the Russian invasion into Crimea but the journal closed down due to their suspicions.

Don’t you find it a little ironic? As this investigation goes on, everyone seems to have close ties… With the lone exception of President Trump.
