Unknown FBI Informant Contacted Trump’s Campaign Team

The Washington Post reports that in addition to meeting with Trump campaign advisers George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, an informant who offered to provide foreign policy advice also met with Trump’s campaign co-chair Sam Clovis. The New York Times reported Friday that the source, who has worked in Britain, is well known in Washington circles and has for years acted as an informant for the CIA.

The use of informants is relatively common, and is typically used in methods of intelligence gathering, but the recent disclosure has given rise to claims by some GOP lawmakers and Trump allies that the previous administration planted a ‘mole’ to dig up dirt. FBI agents sent the informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes subpoenaed the Justice Department for documents related to the source, and in addition, Trump recently tweeted that the former administration improperly spied on his campaign and called the action “bigger than Watergate”.

  1. Clearly the analysis above is biased. These informants were trained intelligence operatives and they were digging up dirt that was later leaked to the media. There is no evidence to the contrary. There is only he said/she said opinion. This is the reason it must be investigated.

    99% of the news media seems slanted to the Left intended to brainwash the public and do social engineering.

    The irregularities of having intelligence operatives do a Russian conspiracy investigation, without any verifiable evidence to justify it, is clearly an irregularity and demands an investigation.

    Not to admit this fact, and to slant the opinion Left, demonstrates a clear bias by the writer of above op ed. Can’t even call it factual or showing journalistic integrity. It is manipulative and consistent with the democrat narrative in its conclusions and point of view. Shame on the bias by a those who claim to study bias in the media, clearly showing yet again a lack of journalistic integrity and objectivity.
