Looks like Donald Trump ‘s longstanding claim that someone infiltrated his campaign, ehum, may actually have some ground. Per reports, 73-year-old Stefan Halper has apparently been identified as the secret FBI informant that Trump has long claimed spied on him illegally.
Now, the Washington Post appears to have somewhat of an interesting profile on the man allegedly responsible for the act. The Post revealed that Halper, 73, is a “moderate Republican” who has long standing ties to the intelligence community. A feat, ehum, that the DOJ now says they will investigate to ensure they weren’t lied to.
Halper had apparently met with multiple Trump associates in 2016 in the months leading up to the election. At the time, he allegedly failed to identify himself as a confidential FBI informant. Interestingly, he has also worked in nearly all of the past four Presidential administrations — something that the DOJ says may be reason for potentially criminal charges.
