    Reports Appear To Confirm Identity Of Secret FBI Informant

    The reports from The New York Times and The Washington Post both match reports from The Daily Caller News Foundation, which would appear to identify Stefan Halper as the FBI's secret informant that the bureau allegedly used to gather information about the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

    The most important story to come from The New York Times and The Washington Post's reports is not necessarily the identity of the informant, but the undeniable revelation that someone is leaking the information about the informant to the two newspapers.

    A source familiar with the matter told The Daily Wire late on Friday night that leaks are most likely coming from the Department of Justice and the FBI.

    "It appears that the DOJ and the FBI are burning their own sources by leaking information, that they have been refusing to give to Congress, to The Washington Post and The New York Times all for the purpose of spinning an embarrassing story," the source told The Daily Wire.

    The source noted that if this is true, the officials are leaking key information about the alleged identity of the informant that they themselves claim would endanger the informant and the informant's contacts if their identity was ever revealed.


    BOMBSHELL: Reports Appear To Confirm Identity Of Secret FBI Informant; Source Hints Who Is Leaking
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    DOJ Frets About Source Outing While Deliberately Outing Source



    The Justice Department has a pattern of claiming extreme danger if the American public or her representatives in Congress learn about what they are doing. For instance, as the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence prepared to release information about abuse of the secret courts that permit the government to spy on American citizens, the Justice Department released a letter to the press saying the action was “extraordinarily reckless,”would be “damaging” to “national security,” and would risk “damage to our intelligence community or the important work it does in safeguarding the American people.”

    Justice and the FBI also have a pattern of redacting huge swaths of reports and letters to and from Congress as part of their oversight investigation. When the redactions are lessened, they reveal not sensitive information that affects national security so much as embarrassing details about how Justice and FBI have conducted business. Examples here and here.

    The May 8 article, the one that claimed Congress couldn’t be given any information related to its subpoena, published leaks from government officials that the U.S government had a secret source who had helped the special counsel’s Russia investigation. The article said the source was a U.S. citizen who had worked with the CIA and the FBI.

    In a May 16 article in The New York Times, government officials leak more information about the use of informants to spy on the Trump campaign. These leakers said there was at least one informant who was spying on the Trump campaign. They revealed that the informant met with multiple Trump campaign affiliates, including Carter Page and George Papadopolous.

    In the most recent article published last night, the Washington Post‘s sources reiterate their claim that talking about the source is extremely dangerous, saying “leaders warn that publicly identifying the confidential source would put lives in danger and imperil other operations. The stakes are so high that the FBI has been working over the past two weeks to mitigate the potential damage if the source’s identity is revealed, according to several people familiar with the matter.”
