Next Target: Stephen Miller
Following a similar formula to the one used with George Papadopoulos, Trump adviser Stephen Miller received an invitation to attend a symposium in Cambridge, England in July. Miller, at that time smack dab in the middle of a heated presidential campaign, declined the offer.
If the term “Cambridge Symposium” rings a bell for you, it’s probably because it’s the very same panel that Obama surveillance victim Carter Page met a fella named Stefan Harper.
Harper is an academic by day and government informant by night. He has extensive contacts with both the CIA and British intelligence services. Public records show that the Department of Defense paid Halper a little over $1 million between 2012 and 2018 for consulting work.
But Halper didn’t give up after failing to reel in Miller. The CIA had to get its money’s worth, after all. Once the FBI counterintel probe into the Trump campaign formally began on July 31, 2016, Halper contacted two other Trump advisers: Sam Clovis on Aug. 29, and Papadopoulos on Sept. 2.
Halper paid Papadopoulos $3,000 for a research paper and also footed the bill for his trip to London. According to reports, Halper asked Papadopoulos straight out: “George, you know about hacking the emails from Russia, right?”
While Papadopoulos once again denied knowing anything about emails or Russian hacking, it became clear that Halper was continuing the theme first articulated by Joseph Mifsud before the full investigation opened. And guess what is indicated by a recurring theme? You got it — central planning! And who would be the planners in this case? Right again — high level officials in both the American and British governments, and possibly others.
