Was Pentagon Whistleblower Punished For Exposing Russian Connections Of Anti-Trump Federal Spy?

Written by Wes Walker on August 28, 2018

Will the media care as much about this slapdown against a diligent Pentagon Whistleblower as they did about Brennan getting his security clearance pulled?

Shouldn’t a guy being punished for exposing a Million-dollar contravention of US Law be a bigger story than Brennan — who has been known for leaking stories to the media?

After all, if you cozy up to an industry whose main goal is EXPOSING secrets (ie: the media) it’s pretty hard to justify a clearance whose only real requirement is an ability to KEEP them. And, if you remember, the media was positively frothing at the mouth over Trump’s outrageous playing of politics in this matter.

Who, then, shall we now accuse of playing politics over the treatment of a good guy doing the right thing?

An investigation by SaraACarter.com reveals that the documents and information Lovinger stumbled on and other documents obtained by this news site, raise troubling questions about Halper, who was believed to have worked with the CIA and part of the matrix of players in the bureau’s ‘CrossFire Hurricane’ investigation into Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin..

And now it appears the whistleblower who raised concerns about Halper is getting hammered for having done so.

Meet Adam Lovinger. He was a former Defence Department analyst. He tripped over an inconvenient irregularity that blew the ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation into Trump wide open. And now his career is in jeopardy.

Lovinger’s internal review noticed a million-dollar payment to a professor in Cambridge “to write Defense Department Foreign Policy Reports.”

After reporting this, his top-security clearance was suspended, he was demoted, and could see his 12 years of service come to an abrupt end.

“When Mr. Lovinger raised concerns about DoD’s misuse of Stefan Halper in 2016, he did so without any political designs or knowledge of Mr. Halper’s spying activities,” Bigley told SaraACarter.com. “Instead, Mr. Lovinger simply did what all Americans should expect of our civil servants: he reported violations of law and a gross waste of public funds to his superiors.”

Yes, you read that correctly. His spying activities. Crossfire Hurricane… the federal investigation into a Presidential candidate.

And for that, Bigley said, Lovinger has paid the ultimate price in his 12-year career as a strategist in the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment. According to Bigley, shortly after Lovinger began reporting and asking questions about suspicious contracts given to Halper and others, including one person closely associated Chelsea Clinton, his security clearance was suspended. Later, on April 3, 2018, the DoD’s Washington Headquarters Services Director Barbara Westgate sent a letter to Lovinger indefinitely suspending him from duty and pay status after his clearance was removed in March. The letter stated, “The purpose of this memorandum is to notify you that I am proposing to indefinitely suspend you from duty and pay status in your position as a Foreign Affairs Specialist.”
Bigley suspects it was more than the Clinton-connected contracts adding, “Mr. Lovinger unwittingly shined a spotlight on the deep state’s secret weapon – Stefan Halper – and threatened to expose the truth about the Trump-Russia collusion narrative than being plotted: that it was all a set-up.” — Source: Sara Carter

Keep in mind, the core of the whole allegation that kicked off the endless Mueller Witchhunt is that Trump is connected to Russian operatives, and ultimately to Putin himself. That’s their claim, isn’t it, the same one that nobody has been able to substantiate in a year and a half?

Here’s where the plot thickens.

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 SaraACarter.com 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.

The Fed’s paid agent, Halper, as it happens, is personally connected to both Page and Papadopoulos. As well as the Russians. And Chelsea Clinton. Are we to believe that’s a coincidence?

There was another issue he raised before his security clearance was revoked.

Lovinger also raised concerns about Halper’s role in conducting what appeared to be diplomatic meetings with foreigners on behalf of the U.S. government because his role as contractor forbids him from doing so, according to U.S. federal law.

There’s been a whole lot of sketchy behavior going on behind the scenes.

And the only one who seems to be paying any meaningful price is the honest agent who tried to act in the citizens’ best interest.

Does that seem right to you?
