We pointed out in 2018 that the UK did more to insert itself into the 2016 US election than any other country. It now looks like they either got caught or they were duped. We may soon find out.
The Russia Hoax may have begun in London as Trump team members were constantly spied on in the spring of 2016 long before the FBI says it started its counterintelligence investigation into the Russia – Trump hoax. We also know that individuals related to British Intel were key players in the hoax.
We’ve known for well over a year that the Clinton campaign and the FBI worked with former UK MI6 spy Christopher Steele, who authored a dossier of salacious statements about President Trump. Steele was reportedly paid by Fusion GPS for the document.
Steele was paid $168,000 by Glenn Simpson’s company Fusion GPS for the series of memos containing information that was selectively briefed to journalists approved by Simpson and used by the FBI.
The Steele dossier was never verified and Steele himself told a British Court that he could no verify it.
George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by at least three individuals with ties to British, Italian and/or U.S. Intelligence: Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper.
Mifsud and Papadopoulos obtained positions at an organization named the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security. Papadopoulos was a ‘nobody’ and the Centre sketchy at best. Mifsud apparently provided information to Papadopoulos that the Russians had Hillary’s emails and then he vanished in early November 2017, shortly after Papadopoulos was in the news and indicted. His whereabouts were unknown until he was recently located in Italy.
Although the common story is that Mifsud was a Russian Agent, many ties seem to lead him back to UK Intelligence. Julian Assange put out a Twitter Thread noting the connection between Mifsud and UK Intelligence.
Although, not a Brit, Alexander Downer is the Australian individual who apparently overheard Papadopoulos state that Russia had Hillary’s emails in a bar in a meeting at a bar in London. He next reportedly alerted the US State Department in London about the story. This story reported started the Trump – Russia FBI counter intelligence investigation in July 2016 and more spying on Trump. This story has been refuted for months.
The Papadopoulos/Downer meeting has been portrayed as a chance encounter in a bar, but this does not appear to be the case….Downer has direct ties to UK Intelligence firm Hakluyt where he served on the Advisory Board from 2008-2014.
Shortly after the Papadopoulos and Downer chance encounter, Peter Strzok was in London per texts released by the FBI. “Strzok texts suggest he was in London on August 3, 2016.” The corrupt FBI’s investigation into Trump officially started a few days earlier.
One individual all over the Internet and social media by the name of Stefan Halper has been identified as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign). The most intriguing individual related to Papadopoulos is Halper.
According to Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork –
My guess is Papadopoulos never knew what hit him. A young man, suddenly thrust into a position beyond his experience, Papadopoulos made for an easy intelligence target.
Carter Page almost certainly discussed the just completed Moscow trip with his host, Stefan Halper, during the London symposium.
It’s now being reported that Devin Nunes has learned the identity of a “top secret intelligence source” that was part of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Investigation.
I think there’s a decent chance that source is Stefan Halper.
Halper had contact with both Papadopulos and Carter Page. Halper has connections to UK Intelligence and US Intelligence. Halper met with Carter Page just days after Page’s Moscow trip.
Other Internet sleuths tied Halper to the Obama team of crooks. Halper was paid more than $400,000 in 2016 for his efforts to set Papadopulos up and get him to sing to the Australian diplomat about Hillary’s emails being held by Russia. Mifsud, Halper and others planted this information on Papadopulos before he reportedly shared this with the Aussie in a drunken London pub discussion.
Additional research shows that Halper was a classmate of impeached President Bill Clinton. Halper apparently knew Bill Clinton well in their days at Oxford. He later worked as an Advisor to the Clinton Administration.
It looks like Obama’s corrupt leaders at the FBI were connected with many of the Deep State players and British related spies in London. We also know that these players met around the world.
Christopher Steele met with Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson and the DOJ’s Bruce Ohr in Washington D.C. shortly after the election in November 2016. Steele also met with State Department employees in Washington before the election.
Former Arizona Senator John McCain and his assistant, David Kramer, were told of the dossier by an associate of Steele’s, and former British diplomat, Sir Andrew Wood, on November 18th of 2016. Kramer turned around and ten days later met Steele in Surrey, England on November 28th, 2016.
Ironically, at the same time that Steele was working with the McCain team, the FBI was working on their first meeting of the “Secret Society” that would occur in London. Lisa Page referred to this society in a text to her lover Peter Strzok in early November 2016 –
Then later in the month a group of FBI agents flew to London at the same time Kramer was in England meeting Steele. Page and Strzok text about this too –
A short time after the meeting of the “Secret Society”, the Head of Britain’s MI6 gave a speech where he said –
The head of the British intelligence agency MI6, Alex Younger, has said cyber-attacks, propaganda and subversion from hostile states pose a “fundamental threat” to European democracies, including the UK.
Younger was referring to Russia but he should have looked at the US and in a mirror.
A short time later, on January 10th, 2017, far left Buzzfeed published to bogus Steele dossier. It was all over the mainstream media outlets. At this point it may have become clear to the Brits that the Steele dossier was a sham because the dossier they received may have been different from the one published by Buzzfeed.
A couple of days after this, on January 13, 2017, the Brits sent a private letter to the Trump team –
Multiple witnesses have told Congress that, a week before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, Britain’s top national security official sent a private communique to the incoming administration, addressing his country’s participation in the counterintelligence probe into the now-debunked Trump-Russia election collusion.
Most significantly, then-British national security adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant claimed in the memo, hand-delivered to incoming U.S. national security adviser Mike Flynn’s team, that the British government lacked confidence in the credibility of former MI6 spy Christopher Steele’s Russia collusion evidence, according to congressional investigators who interviewed witnesses familiar with the memo.
This report from the Brits was another example that the Mueller team and the FBI had that showed that the dossier was bogus and so was Trump – Russia collusion.
On the same date the British press stated that MI6 was livid with Steele’s actions related to the dossier –
MI6 Chief Sir Alex Younger is said to be livid if it is true that he accepted a commission to dig dirt on a US politician from a Washington DC rivals.
And one senior intelligence source branded the 53-year-old “an idiot.”
The source told The Sun: “Chris should never have accepted this bit of work.
(Recent reports in the British press now confirm that the Brits knew of Steele’s bogus dossier before candidate and President Trump did.)
This leads us to – Robert Hannigan
Hannigan had been Head of the GCHQ and he suddenly resigned in January of 2018 –
Hannigan only took over at the UK’s surveillance agency in November 2014 to oversee a more open approach after revelations by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden put GCHQ on the defensive in 2013.
His sudden resignation – he informed staff just hours before making this decision public – prompted speculation that it might be related to British concerns over shared intelligence with the US in the wake of Donald Trump becoming president.
But the GCHQ press release stressed his decision was exclusively for family reasons. As well as his ill wife, Hannigan has two elderly parents to look after. He will remain in post until a successor is appointed.
The British Deep State feared Donald Trump like they feared Brexit.
#SpyGate was a transatlantic plot to stop Trump. The British Deep State feared Trump like they feared Brexit. They were part of the same movement, and both posed a threat to the political ruling class on both sides of the pond.https://t.co/y0ctgsrmts

Dossier author Christopher Steele opposed Brexit like he opposed Trump.
… and it is worth noting that dossier hack Christopher Steele adamantly opposed Brexit, hated it as much as he hated Trump https://t.co/XD6I8ANcPm

And all of the Deep State hacks took turns traveling to the UK during the election “for business.”
Priestap, Strzok, Page, McCabe & Michael Gaeta (FBI agent from Rome) all traveled to London during the campaign…Brennan also made trips…Congressional oversight demands a full accounting of who they met with, and whether British intelligence also spied on Page,other US citizens

Based on information to date, the UK had more to do with interfering with the 2016 US Presidential election than Russia. The Obama team and the Clinton campaign spied on the Trump Administration and used the entire government apparatus, including the CIA, FBI, the DOJ and others, to do so. They also had help from the UK and others.
The UK either got caught or were misled by the Deep State’s “Secret Society”. Either way they damaged US – UK relations and interfered in the US election almost as much as the Deep State.
